Choosing a Pay-Per-Click Search Engine - Paid Listing
Advertising on pay-per-click search engines can be a great way to bring people who are looking for the products and services that you have to offer right to your site. "Paid Listings" or "Sponsored Search Results" usually show up first or just to the right of the regular search results. As an advertiser you are charged on a cost-per-click (CPC) basis. You are ONLY charged when a customer clicks on your listing.
A sponsored search listing often includes a title, description and the URL.
We recommend 2 pay per click search engines text ads:
A new service worth trying is the Ask Jeeves
Google Ad Words allows you to have your ad placed along with search results.
The cost per click on Google Ad Words is set by you and can be as low as 1 cent. You pay when someone clicks on your listing. They also offer CPM programs.
Ask Jeeves unveiled a sponsored listing option. The minimum bid is 5 cents. Your listings can show up across their network on search engines such as MySearch, Teoma, Mamma and portals such as MyWay, Excite, CNet, Clear Channel, Motley Fool, Tickle amd meta-search engines such as InfoSpace and Dogpile.
Note that you can still buy placement on the "Ask" network via the Google Ad program. That partnership is not ending.Yahoo Sponsored Search
