I'm obviously using MSN, Google, and YSM as my cash cows, but I'm looking for a little bit more quality traffic. Tried Looksmart and Ask, they both sucked quality-wise, and now I'm about to try a couple more..

Curious if anyone has any favorites that generate mostly US traffic that aren't overrun by fraud and BS clicks..

If you read over the many posts in this forum you will find that there really doesn't exist another SE that doesn't have quality problems.

It also looks like YSM is headed down the same path.

In general, the only 2nd tier Search engines are all a "distance" second. As the saying go, it's either tier one or tier none. The only exception is Internet Yellow Pages. In fact the quality of traffic from them are even higher than the tier one SE because people searching on those sites like yellowbook.com are really looking to buy something. It's like nobody picks up a yellowpage book just to look around to see what's inside. Usually, a tree just fell on their roof and they need to find a roofer and a tree removal guy fast. Of course yellowpages is not suitable for all businesses either. It's unlikely that some body will look for a book or CD in the yellowpages.

check ask.com and LookSmart.
Many people say that their traffic is not worth it.
It works very well for my keywords.
