    Post your bids under .05 now, Findwhat is raising it's minimum bid to 5 cents at the end of the month.

    Last Chance to Lock in $0.01 - $0.04 Bids!

    You have until August 31, 2003 to get any new keywords approved, or to lock in existing keyword bids, at these low prices!

    FindWhat.com is the LAST LARGE pay-per-click advertising supplier to offer penny bids! And, after August 31, 2003, you will be hard pressed to find these prices anywhere!

    I have found that for me their traffic is horrible anyway. Might as well just drop them.

    Kanoodle raised their minimum bid from 1 cent to 5 cents a little while ago. I emailed them and asked if the value of their traffic would increas 500% at that time as well, but they never got back to me on that.

    FindWhat... ha.

    There isn't a single Findwhat keyword in our space worth more than 3 cents.

    Hey anyone do an ROI comparison with different PPC programs? I woudl be interested to see your numbers regardless of industry. Anyone care to share? I only have Overture and Google and they both perform a +'ve ROI for our trademarks.

    Findwhat traffic is usually marginal at best, BUT...

    It can work out pretty well for seasonal stuff where there is some urgency to BUY NOW.

    Findwhat and Kanoodle traffic is NOT worth 5 cents. One cent maybe....

    I find that the same keywords (nontravel) on Findwhat and Google generally work out to FindWhat being worth about one third the EPC of an AdSense click. With that said- I do have some terms that perform well enough ti justify more than the minimum on FindWhat- but it's strength for me has always been testing at lower rates to determine pricing for a larger campaign.
