    Hi, I am considering signing up with Bay9 for some pay-per-placement/click advertising for my site. I have had a fairly bad experience with search123.com (not much traffic at all) and am cautious about signing up with another smaller ppc engine.

    Has anyone used Bay9? and if so, how did you find them?

    Also what other ppc search engines have you guys used and found successful? (Apart from goto.com as I have read a great deal about them)

    I've been seeing a lot of solid results from Sprinks lately..

    7search.com can be good at times, bad at times..

    Google adwords is very good, but not the same type of thing..

    I have used Google adWords and found it fairly good for HIGHLY targeted words only. I run a content-based Webmaster site and found my add worked quite well on the phrase "webmaster resources" but did fairly poorly in comparison on "web development".

    After reading some other info, I have decided to sign up with 7search.com. Hopefully I will get a reasonable response from them. The one thing I have noticed on 7search.com is that many of the key words have irrelivant money making schemes or companies as the top bidders. That's a shame for us smaller sites who actually have relevant content for the keywords but can't afford to outbid them.

    I personally use Bay9 on a regular basis and it has brought me cheap and quality traffic. The traffic I receive from Bay9 and GoTo has about the same click to sales conversion rate, but Bay9 is relatively cheaper. For $25, I receive about 5000 hits from Bay and only 1000+ from GoTo. With GoTo's increased minimum bid, I am thinking of phasing out all my listings to Bay9. In fact, I recommend both Bay9 and GoTo at one of my sites:
