First I would like to congradulate you guy's on your very clean looking but comprehensive site.
I recently signed up with 2 pay-per-click deals, one being Kanoodle and the other Findwhat.com. Kanoodle does not seem to control their click throughs too well, or more likely they are partially running an Incentivised Zone type of program where the surfers in some european countries get cash back or prizes for clicking on banners, links and whatever else looks like a pay-per-click deal. This sort of deal should be illegal or better controlled so as to save the advertising sucker some dollars. High traffic means nothing without a descent ROI.
FindWhat.com are another comedy act, they are confused, they lie and are extremely evasive in their operations. They told me that they have nothing to do with go-click.com but infact they do. They say some keywords are not relevant because they are not listed in their database ... and yet they show results on FindWhat as a sponsored findwhat advertiser when you search using the findwhat search box.
When you discover some inconsistency in findwhats operation they are evasive and lie their hearts out to cover-up the crap.
Bottom line, the reviews are great if the reviewed really followed suit ... of which these 2 don't. It looks like I got caught up in their rat race!
PS. Beware of so called ... Incentivised Zone programs, where people actually get paid, or get a gift in some european countries to click on your ad words and banners ... and guess what that does to your advertising dollar ... you get sucked into the rat race! ....
regards and good luck!
