    Is LookSmart a ppc SE??? I doesn't seem to be reviewed as such in teh ppc SE resources I've come across on the web.

    How is LookSmart different from Overture, FindWhat, and the others?

    Also, any opinions on LookSmart are welcomed. We're thinking about going with them. Their 15 cent per click price tag is within our budget for qualified... converting clicks.

    Thanks,

    Yep it's 15 cents a pop.

    The main difference between them and the others is that you cannot bid for top positions; your site's position in search rankings will fall where it may.

    Do an MSN search for your top keywords, and see how deep the 'directory listings' go before they reach the 'web pages'. This is the playing field. If there are only 10 directory listings for a particular keyword, then you will be #11 at worst. If there are hundreds, you may or may not get buried.

    I suggest you do a search for looksmart in this forum and then make up your mind if this is a company you want to be associated with.

    I ran a search on ABW for LookSmart and have to thank Mr. Wahlburg for the advice.

    It appears LookSmart is a turd on the road awaiting the inexperienced advertiser's misplaced foot.

    Hey Crankin', thanks for your response, too. I appreciate the insight, guys.
