I recently read a blog post and confirmed this on the Sam's Club Website mentioning that Wal Mart is introducing PPC services to thier customers?

[samsbiz.com...]

I thought this would be a fun post to chat about. Wal Mart and Sam's Club entering the PPC world?

My initial thought is smart call, they can easily target Mom & Pop shops to advertise online. Millions of small businesses shop there every day...what do you guys think?

LeadConnect will help grow your business by providing your key business data to all of the major search engines.

Now talk about stooping low! WOW, I never thought they would go that low. Now Wal-Mart/Sam's Club wants poor people to pay them for NOTHING when search engines pick your sites up for free? Freaking amazing...

Can't wait for the mainstream recognition of SEO...
"What do you do for a living?" "Search Engine Optimization." "Oh yeahhhh… I heard about that at Sam's Club! Is that where you work? Can you do my site for $25 a month too?"

My cynical side says that this could be a painful reminder to small businesses that you get what you pay for.

I really think they are smart. A huge percent of Wal Mart & Sams Club shoppers are not internet savvy, they are so smart for offering this to the public. It nmight be easy to convince a small business to sign up. I don't think we are going to be seeing a huge wave, but Wal Mart has done some crazy stuff before when they try new things.

Also, does anyone know if they are using thier own Newtwork to advertise, or are they acting as an agency by using Google, Yahoo, Miva, Ask etc?
