    It look like 7 search has gone pay to surf to steal our money:
    http://jet.yea.to/search/search.cgi http://jet.yea.to/search/searchbar.cgi

    I'm getting traffic but no follow thru or conversions. Looks alot like the crap Findwhat was doing last spring. Anyone have any input here. Thanks.

    Hello Haiko,
    Actually I posted 2 links one of which is apparently a downloadable searchbar (scumware?).
    When I checked the link properties on my listings here I found the following in addition to the searchfeed info you got:
    http://meta.7search.com/scripts/redi...word=no+credit

    http://216.216.246.30/bin/findwhat.d...6974206C6F616E

    The sources seem to change the deeper you get into the results. Now it looks likes Findwhat is also involved. Maybe I'm way off base here but I've been burned by PPC before and now this might be a new wave of pay to surf garbage traffic. Anyone's thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks!

    T-Bone, I have been getting trafic from jet-yea through 7-search ppc. So far I haven't seen anything to raise any flags. Its a moderate amount of traffic and seems pretty much in line with my bids. It's hard for me to try to figure out though how it is converting because of the new traffic from Yahoo through Overture.
