    I have been trying out Findwhat as a ppc for a few months - yesterday I added a few new pages and got an email back saying they want "This page links to the merchant x at the head of the description box." - Anybody else getting that yet?

    Just got off the phone from FindWhat - apparently if your description with them does not start out with "This webpage links to "xyz merchant for sales" - and "links to" cannot be reworded, then pages are not in compliance. All the pages I have had in there for over 6 mos are in non compliance, apparently they made a mistake allowing them and the account is being cancelled and refunded back any credits.

    Hmm, shades of Overture!

    Well, I guess they'll save me the decision of whether to refund or not.

    Beam me up Scotty, there's no intelligent email left on the planet.

    Well and to think that I was considering using Findwht for some traffic. Thanks Findwhat, you just made my decision easy.

    I thought Findwhat was associated with WhenU/SaveNow and let my account dry up months ago.

    I let my acount at findwht dry up becausetheir traffic is not very good. It took awhile to spend my money, and it resulted it less than I paid to advertise.

    I refuse to be the mosquetto carrying the disease called ShopNow/Whenu ..so all my 80+ client accounts with Findwhat have been terminiated once they ran out of funds. These guys hound me with e-mails all the time as webmaster for the clients. I used to reply ..but the e-mail return address bounces. So I smell spamm begging for old account activity.
