In a May 5 interview with The News-Press, FindWhat President Craig Pisaris-Henderson blamed the company's lower than expected earnings on its decision to sever its ties with some partners who no longer met the company's expectations.
And it's not because they have been cheating advertisers who have jumped ship in great numbers?
Me thinks that they waited too long to clean house.
In some other recent threads people were speculating that they wouldn't last out the year. At this rate they won't make the end of June.
And another one bites the dust.
How about everyone except Yahoo, Google, MSN and maybe Lycos....Everything else is shady and banking on quick money.
Whatever happened to no specifics in these forums.
The publishing of news links has never been a problem in here and the open discussion of news of this magnitude from a PPC player is fair game.
What are you objecting to? That FindWhat finally got caught at what this forum has been talking about for months?
LOL, you really only trust those 3 guys? Maybe some other PPC's that worked for other people just havent worked for you.
SearchFeed, 7search and search123 etc have tens of thousands of advertisors....They must be doing an acceptable job to keep them.
If you give me retention rate's by these companies (that are acceptable) I'll edit my optinion. I've tried every cpc out there (that I have heard of...were talking at least 20)....And none of them worked consitently for any of my clients where are in multiple industries.
Findwhat is being sued by Yahoo right now too. And in my opinion, they should also be getting sued by many of their customers for all of the click-farm generated clicks and bogus traffic they've been charging people for over the last several months.
This is prime example of how short term greediness can lead to the complete and utter melt-down of a once-solid company.
Looksmart = Findwhat
I think it's over for FW. I could be wrong. I would love to see them return to their honest quality state again... but at this point, I definately wouldn't bet on it.
