What is the opinion out there on companies selling bucket of click? Is this good value for small advertisers and will this approach to pricing work in the long run? Thanks.

I'm unclear as to what a 'bucket of clicks' is (sounds quite cool though ;)). Is it similar to the deal mentioned in your thread in the local search forum [webmasterworld.com]?

If it's the same you already got a very considered reply from inbound. I couldn't really add much to that, but do let me know if I've misunderstood.

I have been on the Internet since 1999 and before PPC was born. My experience is: quality counts, just as it does in the cookware you buy, the clothes you buy, the furniture you buy. Bargains like this are not bargains. IN PPC, quality is Google. Nothing else compares. Not Yahoo, though I would count it number 2, not MSN. And definitely not the third tier stuff. All those 3rd tier others are waste of time and very definitely a waste of money. Problem is that even Google is becoming less effective. There are just too many tire kickers out there clicking on our paid for ads.

It's been my experience that a "bucket of clicks" is pretty much worthless unless you enjoy people eating up your bandwidth and not buying anything.

Most of these offers are merely individuals that click as fast as possible from site to site.
