    Cool Second Tier PPC Programs
    Has anyone had and good experience (or luck) with the 2nd tier PPC's like Miva & Kanoodle????

    I tried them when I started out in the world of online business a number of yrs ago but abandoned for google, yhoo, & msn. But considerable time has past, the wound that the 2nd tiers put in my wallet has healed, and I'm considering giving the 2nd tiers a 2nd shot.

    Anyone gotten any quality traffic from the Miva's & Kanoodle's of the world???

    We havent had much luck with the second tier engines either. You may want to test ASK before buying clicks on the second tiers. How about the content networks on the top 3 engines?

    I'm recalling my Kanoodle experience in 2006 (which granted, is dated): I gave them $50.00. They sent me enough visitors in one hour to a really obscure keyword to spend my $50.00.

    We never spoke again.

    They are, indeed, good at that.

    Seriously, I had tried both Kanoodle and Miva (Find What) a few years back without any success. However, I'm not much into PPC, preferring to stay with SEO.

    thx for the input! & confirmation that my feeling that other than the big 3 (which are great), the 2nd tiers completely suck

    If your'e looking at 2nd tier, might want to check out adbrite and blogads. They aren't purely PPC, but at least you get control over where your ad appears.
