    If yes, could you tell us how do you do over there
    And Goto US went even further in expanding their exposure.

    As far as I'm concerned, GoTo UK is a rip-off. They charge you a minimum of 5p - about 8 cents - to list a site with them. On top of that they also charge an admin. fee.

    I have many UK-specific sites and get significant amount of traffic for them listing them in GoTo USA. Just remember to add the word 'UK' to the keyword you want to list it under, so you get targetted traffic rather than people from all over the world.

    P.S. I hate the entire GoTo company. Because of them we are having to pay for being ranked in Altavista, AOL, Netscape search and other search engines when it used to be free. These companies have no concept of providing a public service and are only concerned with lining their pockets.

    Well, at least it is the pioneer in this business.
    And also other SEs won't use it result as the only resrc.

    And thanks to goto, small sites could promote their site with much much lower cost!

    Small sites promote their wares at a low cost?

    At the moment, yes. But in about a year you won't be able to get anywhere near the top several positions at GoTo for less than about 20 cents PER CLICK even for obscure search terms.

    Believe me.

    And, remember, only one person out of, say, 200 is going to buy anything from your site. Therefore 20 cents * 200 = $40.00 PER CUSTOMER.

    That's not cheap is it?

    The big companies can afford that kind of budget. They've got deep pockets. The small webmaster has got zilch chance. As they say in Germany, they will be 'kaput'

    What do you think?

    Yes, I agree with the competitiveness we gonna face soon, or with some keywords, already!

    So I think we need a competitor for goto, shares the traffic.
