Looksmart doesn't give you anything for the $79 except a guarantee that they'll review your site within 8 weeks. The reason I'd spend 80% of that microscopic budget on Looksmart is that there's not much else to do with less than $100. E-zine advertising is out for me at that small a level, so I'm buying my way into some extra search engine traffic up front, and Looksmart does generate hits.

I just don't understand the $79 on LookSmart. I understand they feed other engines, but is there something they give you for the $79??? It doens't guarantee a listing does it? And couldn't you just submit for free to the other big engines such as Yahoo!, etc.?
I'm just curious what LookSmart does that would justify spending 80% of heavy's "advertising campaign" money.
