    LookSmart Descriptions now updateable

    http://submit.looksmart.com/zbq22/

    I got an email telling me that I could update my descriptions and so forth.

    To change a description: $199
    To add a new site: $299
    To add your site to a new category: $149

    Ridiculous. I will not pay $200 to change my decription. This should be free of charge!

    And $149 to add my site to a new category? <sarcasm>Yeah, let me get out my credit card</sarcasm>

    I get maybe 8 hits from LS in any given day. Granted the majority of my traffic comes from MSN, but most of that is Inktomi anyway.

    Note to All: Go Inktomi, boycott LookSmart

    So first you pay for the listing, then you pay for a description modification? What a crock. I haven't heard anything good about LookSmart yet...

    Thanks for the info Daniel.

    Anytime

    I can't say I've seen any solid benefit from using LookSmart. I hope they go under so I won't have to deal with them anymore.
