    (I will admit up front that I didn't read that entire pitch they sent you--I've just posted my observations about Bay9.)

    From an affiliate's perspective--They're a reversal maniac!

    And from a customer's perspective (as in, someone who would advertise there), they suck very badly!

    Their PPC engine (if it's still operational, I haven't checked in ages) used to get about 10 clicks a month [sitewide]! That's only a slight exaggeration--they got less searches on certain terms in a month, than a real PPC engine gets in a day! For an idea of how pathetic it is, I deposited $25 last year, never deposited more to the PPC account, and I still haven't gotten a notice that my account has gone dry!

    The information below is based on my experience almost a year ago but I haven't read of any drastic changes happening at Bay9 so here it is despite its age:

    Their so-called "proven banner ads" are all those fake "warning" ads. You just pick one that fits your category and that's it (no real customization). There's 10 or 20 to pick from.

    They also have an annoying popup and you can buy that waste of money, too. It, too, only had a few variants to choose from.

    There's some other kind of ad that came out a few months ago from there but I didn't check it out.

    They did have an auction for buying newsletter ads. Their newsletter is only one of the ones in the auction--most are outside. Results for that should vary, depending on the newsletter. I tried it once and got 1 sale, though, from a distribution of 20,000 opt-in webmasters from an outside newsletter (which seems lousy to me). I didn't get any spam complaints so I assume they were really opt-in.

    I haven't played any of their contests or used any of the other stuff aimed at general surfers so I don't know about that part.

    But it's a pretty cheeseboy operation, overall. Definitely in the "how'd they live this long?" category!

    I've read somewhere that they send incentivized traffic from time to time :rolleyes:

    FWIW, as far as their contests go I've seen multiple posts saying they don't pay their lottery winners.
