    Question Google vs. Overture

    So why is it that I spend half the money on Overture and get more sales vs. double the money on Google and NO sales from google(or 1 once in a while)

    I use the same keywrods, same landing pages,....

    Is it because of all the croocked companys that pay people to click on ad words all day or What??? :'(

    I am getting really fed up with this google thing

    Google and msn have serve different demographics.

    MSN serves housewives and the less technically literate and google attracts a more technically literate crowd.

    I add that the overture keyword tool is totally unreliable returning unprobable matches... Not that Adwords goes better...
    at first, google gives more traffic, but overture has more targetted.. and you pay for it.

    Google optimization always works and give you hits and on other hand overture optimization works but gives less hits in comparision

    I never get sales from Overture! Practically all of them are from Google. I guess I'm the opposite!

    I spend $1000 per year with Google, but have campaigns for many domains. Only one domain is over $20 per month. Does Overture let us do this or is each Overture account limited to one domain?

    Thanks.

    Have you tried using the Google conversion tracking tool ? It' available to all adword users.

    did you opt out of google content network (adsense) yet?

    overture allows you to advertise many URLs from one account. $20 minimum monthly spend total. not per URL.
