Rasputin, I used your link to check out Findology. Took them over a week to approve my campaign, but did get the additional funds credited to my account.

However, I have been following my logs pretty closely and it looks like most of the click throughs are fraudulent. After running with them for 5 days now, I have over 300 click throughs (which is fishy to begin with since they come at an average of 17 cents per click). So far, only 12 of the 300+ visitors has made it past the home page — 4%. My natural traffic has closer to 40-50% of my visitors getting past the home page, so quite obviously most of this traffic is fraudulent. Probably also explains why the bids are so low for such competitive search terms.

Needless to say, I won’t be renewing this campaign.

Really? I really enjoy the traffic that I get from goclick.

I watch my traffic in real time and also customize the banners to the traffic source. I get many actual members from goclick. My experiments with directing particular banners at traffic from particular sources also suggest that much of the goclick traffic is genuine.

I find that certain terms are pure spam regardless of where you advertise “online gambling casino” for example.

I agree with what people have said about enhance.com. I spent alot of money with them when I first started so if anyone ever wanted to do a class action — I’m there.

Unfortunately that is the case with most places.

I recently gave goclick another try – lousy, lousy.

And even worst, GoClick was sold for $12.5 million dollars recently, so expect continued clickfraud with them non-stop. And in my honest opinion, Go-Click is the worst of the search engines Dominique…

Which leaves me to the conclusion that I should only stay with yahoo, goole and miva. Nothing else.

Yahoo seem to convert better in sales for me for my Wholesale Video Games
site and google is increasing in click-fraud rates in my honest conclusion every month and the only thing that you get from them when you call them is “Trust Us We Are Very Aware Of Click-Fraud And We Are Taking Care Of It With Our Secretly Procedures:blahblah:

However, I will keep using google for top advertising, even if it usually cost me 4-5 times more than in MIVA or SearchFeed, Epilot, etc.

But is waiting to be picked up by the Search engines the only way to advertise your site?

CJ

There are other ways that I have found. Good ways that don’t cost much at all and get you valued clicks.. Search Google and other forum, you’ll find some worthwhile programs. Now I would let you know where I’m talking about but since I can’t put up my affiliat link I’m not gonna. Why would I want to send the compition to a place I advertise… Doesn’t make cents

OK I started the post asking for recco’s but now that I am a bit more web wise I realize who is going to give away there “golden” advertising spots…not I, unless ofcourse I can post an affiliate link and make a commision.

Search, Search, and Re-search..

I agree,

I have used PPC for gambling terms in the past shortly after google and overture stop accepted gambling.

I’ve tried Goclick, Kanoodle, Enhance and maybe a few more.

you may think i got some fraud traffic.. NO

Some? the traffic i got was 100% fraud.. the leader of that faked traffic was Enhance.

I build my own servers and run them by my self.. I know my way with server logs and know a bot hit when i see one.

I was robbed, there is no other way to describe that.
there were so many hits on the log with the PPC ref codes that help you track your campaigns.

so many hits requesting the default page.. no hits requesting loading any of the images on that page.. not a single ppc hit came from a browser.

PPC advertising is the fastest way to pay for nothing.

If you are desperate to advertise and get good traffic, Look for sites where you can buy ad spots. you will know where your ad will appear and for how long.

Well, I guess my apology’s are well overdue here.
I really didn’t mean to come ocross as spamer but I guess its too late now.
I appreciate the updates webber, although I never had similar problems myself. My expirience with them was that everything was done fast and in very proffesional manner. I don’t bid as much as you do and have been running compain for gambling site only since begining of this month. My average cost went up to $0.07 per click and since my bids are fairly low I don’t get that much traffic. So far this month I got 30 hits with 2 players signup (fun players). I have to say that I don’t have a good way to monitor conversion rates for this site, so can’t speak on that one. I do know its not 40-50%

Sorry if I mislead anyone. I will say that I will continue to use this service for a while longer since my expirience was good so far.

One last followup and I’m done with this. Jacque, my account manager did reactivate my account to allow the funds to be depleated by “click thrus”. Again, not that it matters much, but just to set the record staight.

Just to follow up my last post. Jacque from Findology emailed me to ask if she could help find additional keywords for me. I emailed her back with basically the information in my last post above. The result – she has suspended my account even though all of the funds hadn’t been used up yet. Not a big deal since I only deposited $25 and they put in another $50, but still, that’s no way to run a business. I tell her that I won’t be renewing my campaign, so I forfeit any dollars left in my account. Nice.

Not that I have to spell it out for anyone here, but stay far far away from Findology, 97% of their traffic proved to be fraudulent. For me anyway.
