THE NEW NAME FOR FINDWHAT.COM

FindWhat.com, Inc., Espotting, Comet Systems and Miva Corporation have all changed their names and identities to MIVA, Inc. As one global company, MIVA is the largest independent Performance Marketing Network.

We expect to complete this project by the end of June 2005. While our name will change to reflect our global standing in the marketplace, our re-brand does not impact our terms of business with you. Your account and login details all remain the same.

OUR NEW BRAND
As a global company, our mission at MIVA is simple – to help businesses grow. Our tagline says it all – MIVA Means Business. We help advertisers grow their customer base and partners grow their revenue. Our mission is reflected in our new symbol. Our symbol forms both the ‘a’ of our MIVA logo, as well as representing one of the core values we offer to our customers – Infinite Growth. Here’s how it came to life:

NEW ADVERTISER TOOLS
Together with our name change, we are happy to introduce an all new Ad Center from which you can access your MIVA Pay-Per-Click, Pay-Per-Call and AdRevenue Xpress campaigns. The Ad Center replaces the current Account Manager; we are confident you will like the changes we’ve made.

To login to your Pay-Per-Click, Pay-Per-Call or AdRevenue XPress account, click here http://adcenter.us.miva.com.

Miva Ad Center highlights for Pay-Per-Click advertisers include:

An easy-to-use navigation enabling you to locate specific items or account functions.

A global information bar so you can reference your account balance at any time.

Data sorting so you can view your information in ascending or descending order.

Record and page counts enabling you to determine at a glance the number of items residing within the Ad Manager and Report Manager.

Easy access to your profile and account information.

A single, comprehensive repository for all online help, including contact information, user guides, legal documents, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

A completely reorganized toolbar enabling you to easily manage your ads.
A streamlined Ad List with dual functionality for editing keyword bids and changing ad status on an individual or mass level.

The addition of a Keyword List so you can access your keywords directly. You can view the ad title the keyword is attached to, your Estimated CPC, bid method, your current bid, and the Top 5 Max Bids; if your bid is one of the top 5, it will display in bold-faced font.

A Search feature within the Keyword List enabling you to search for a particular keyword in your ads or display all keywords.

A Reports Generator enabling you to create standard reports through quick links. You can also create custom reports by selecting an individual ad group or all ads and choosing the time frame from the drop-down list or choosing manually entering a date range.

The ability to view a report, download a report or convert it to a graph with one click.

The inclusion of all tools in one location for easy access: MIVA AdAnalyzer™, Account Scheduler, Keyword Identifier and Mass Submission.

Improved functionality and ease-of-use within MIVA AdAnalyzer, including the addition of a revenue box for ROI tracking and quick links for setup, status, and instructions.

HELPING YOUR BUSINESS GROW

Look for many more improvements to the Ad Center over the next several months as we add new tools and additional functionality. And as always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions on how we can improve and look forward to hearing from you.

For questions about your account:
E-mail us at adsupport.us@miva.com

For suggestions on how we can continue to improve the Ad Center:
E-mail us at adtools@miva.com

We recognize that our success is largely due to the people we work with and would like to thank you for your ongoing support. We look forward to continuing to grow our businesses together in the future.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, or a member of the MIVA team.

Best regards,

Craig Pisaris-Henderson
Chairman & CEO

Comet is a place where you can get custom cursors for you or your site for free. For instance, a person visiting our site could have it’s cursor turn into a pair of dice, or a chip. Cool, huh?

Except the cursors come bundled with spyware. Go read about vitamins and magically, spam advertising vitamins will appear in your mailbox.

I haven’t researched comet recently, it’s been years since I noted the ways they spied. Not sure what all they evolved into, but free toys undoubtedly still come with a price…
