    When this was announced I heard a bunch of complaints about it. What is so bad about this offer?

    I was just thinking that if your target keywords is over 15 cents anywhere else that this might not be such a bad deal.

    The problem is that looksmart picks your description and most of the keywords that people use to find you. Their stats do not work, even they admit they can not clearly follow them. Check out the board at Jims World. I thought I would give their system a try so I put in $225 into their click account system to keep one of my sites alive. 3 hours later I get an email stating that this money had been used up and I needed to add another $1,500 to make it to the end of the month. All this when they never even sent one visitor! No refund! No customer support! I am trying to get things fixed up with my credit card company now.

    Do not use them!

    Heyder,

    While a lot of the complaints have been about how Looksmart made this switch and the fact that sites already in the directory were not grandfathered into the new program, Looksmart are doing some very dubious things and there is serious trouble brewing for them.

    I can't really say anymore than this, but I would steer well clear to see how things pan out.
