    Lower Tier PPC Search..
    I am looking for some advice.

    Question: If Google, Msn, and Yahoo, was not a choice, which 2 lower tier PPC engines would you recommended to use? Let's assume you had to pick 2, even though you are totally against all lower tier PPC. In other words, which 2 of the crooks are less crooked than all the rest?

    Screw them all. I'd recommend spending your $25 to $50 for an ad on some relevant site. Results may be good or bad, but at least you'd be assured that real people see your ad, and you may get a little bit of PR benefit as well.

    Buy lottery tickets. You'll get a better return with them than with most second-tier PPC Search Engines.

    Agree, you can find them on your own or check out places like:

    http://www.blogads.com/

    http://www.adbrite.com/

    I've used both without any problems.

    Many have a minimum deposit of $25 or $50 (which they often match as an incentive), but I have yet to spend all of that first deposit on any of them, no matter how hard I have tried.

    Forget about them.

    Thanks for the replies. I have never purchased ad space, as such. I'll check it out.

    This is not an endorsement or recommendation but of the 2nd/3rd Tier only Ask Jeeves and Ehance are the only ones that generate any return of note. And it is a small very quite note at that.

    yup, Trust has a good point.

    Both of those are known for being reputable and getting real clicks.
    unlike the 99% bot hits you'd be getting if you went with a third rate tier.

    You have asked this question several times and everyone always tells you the same thing, put your money on the 4 horse in the 5th race before you use a third rate PPCSE. They are all tied to clever ways to drain your account...period.

    Get smart about using Google and MSN. There is lots of competition, but quality ads, keywords and landing pages will put you ahead of many to start with.

    I just scrolled down before posing this and saw Michael's response. Lotto tickets are a nice alternative to PPC outside of the big three.

    A note on AdBrite. In my experience your ROAS with them trends low.
