    Does anyone know how vast their network is, and where my listings would appear. They seem to have favorable reviews in the ppc search engine web sites that do reviews. Are there some search sites/web directories that their listings appear in? or is it all from the pop-under ads they have?

    I don't know much about them other than the Spam email I get about them.

    If NONE of the big competitors are bidding on a PPC, we can be assured that there is NO TRAFFIC

    GoClick is probably the best of the PPC search engines with one exception - they are real light on traffic.

    I actually send them more traffic than I receive back in clicks.

    Main category words like 'computer' get enough searches to make it worthwhile and the minimum click cost is only 1 cent.

    Their affiliate program pays 2 cents per click if you use text links or their banner.
    So if you can send them 1 click, you can pay for two coming back your way. Not a bad deal.

    I use the following link text:

    Click Here To Find More (insert keyword here)
    Sites.

    A neat trick you can do is to set up a simple
    box with text links going to three or four keywords you know people are interested it.

    Such as:

    Click Here To Find The Best Astrology Sites.

    Click Here To Find The Best Free Stuff Sites.

    Click Here To Find The Best Gambling Sites.

    Click Here To Find The Best Computer Product Sites.

    Every click thru puts 2 cents in your pocket.
    And the only thing people need to do is type in the keyword to search when they get to the search engines home page.

    Just to show you how dumb most of the search engine marketing types are: NOT one has a rotating banner for targeted keywords that says:

    Click Here To Find The Best XYZ Sites ON The Net.

    With the XYZ rotating every unique click on their affiliates site.

    (Yo, Heyder - You owe me for this freebie.
    If you take that top50 spam factory off the top of your searchany front page, I'll send you some good traffic)

    Another thing, if you have a site dealing, say with printer cartridges, send them to printers. If you have printer site, send them to printer cartridges.

    Cross reference your keywords with at least one of the links in your box if you use the box.

    This trick works real well for making content sites pay, depending on their traffic. You can usually get a 10% CTR using the box trick as an outlink.

    In my little experience with goclick i have found them to be good in every aspect apart from traffic.

    They can send you some targetted traffic but only a couple of hits a day (if even that) unless you want to bid for the top one or two places on highly searched terms.

    Replies like Fred's are exactly why DonSteitz once said on CJU (and he's making more affiliate marketing than Fred probably makes as a professor) that he would never use a ppc engine that had an affiliate program. Though he specifically mentioned webmasters who click on their own affiliate search links....

    I use 7 ppc engines.
    GoClick is the absolute best ROI.
    It's just too bad they don't have 10 times the traffic. Give them another year and they will be nipping at the heels of bigshots like findwhat & kanoodle.

    Microdot, As far as being an affiliate of theirs you need to understand one thing. Their popup servers are badly bogged down. This is the reason why the stats don't match. During peek periods the ads seem to popup then pause, delaying the blur that takes the window under. This give the surfer way too much time to close the window.

    Pay per click search engines are multiplying like rabbits.

    But they all have the same chicken or the egg problem.

    They need traffic to get people to bid and people who bid won't bid until they have traffic.

    If we were me doing it. I'd have minimum of key words - free, advertising, computers, games, shopping, home & garden, etc.

    Maybe 50 at the most. Then I'd make a series of links and banners that target each WORD.

    And I would limit the number of bidders to 20, 10 on two pages. Each front page bid would have to be at least 5 cents. Each 2nd page bid would have to be 4 cents.

    After I filled up the 2 pages for a category, I add a third with a minimum bid of 3 cents per click. After that you simply say SOLD OUT for that word.

    And I would have a, CLICK HERE TO BOOKMARK XYZ SEARCH, in big bold letters somewhere on everypage that, automatically book marks the home page.

    I'd pay the affiliates 10 cents per click thru tracked as a lead.

    Then I'd contact all the biggie companies
    and give them a chance to bid for a spot - if they decline they CAN NEVER play in your game.

    Example: Dell, you want to buy a position on on our computer search page for 5 cents per click with a minimum of $500 to get listed to help us get started?

    If they say NO, then they can never get a listing on the front page or if you want to be real hard case on any page.

    First guy to put $500 your procket gets spot one and so on until you fill the 20 slots. When they use up their $500 they now have to bid for the spot.

    And I would sell a keyword banner spot that rotates at $15/1,000 with a maximun of 7 rotating spots.

    The rotating banner income is your profit.

    You will get a ton of traffic and the bids will start to rise up. Pretty soon you will have the top 10 all bidded in at $.10 or higher. And it shouldn't take more than 5 to 10 people to run the whole show with each one responsible for 5 keywords and couple of people to run the show.

    Oh and I would have a FREE ezine that is sent out ONCE a week and use our DataTracker to automatically subscribe all who wish to join.

    After a bit - the 30 listed players will be getting all the traffic and those who didn't join when they were asked or missed out will
    have to go somewhere else.

    Consider how much traffic would be sent if you had 500,000 affiliates making 10 cents per click thru tracked as leads.

    You'd make Yahoo look like a piker for traffic.

    And you'd have the biggest e-commerce ezine on the planet - and of course when you sent it out each week you would have a special link to a bid for page like my CoolStuff with a link back to search.

    Anyone want to do it - I have the affiliate software and mega size server to handle all the affiliate stuff.

    Basically it's simply having a series of
    pages like my very cool classified page.
    http://www.mastermcom.net/classifieds.html

    And if you wanted to blow away BendOver and the rest you could give each listing a banner
    and set it up like my Sports Shoppe page.
    http://www.mastermcom.net/sports.html

    All we need is a bit of seed money and some people to contact a bunch of potential bidders.

    It ain't rocket science.
