    I'm using 7search network and have been tracking what url's my clicks are coming from. They have ALL been from domain names that looks like they don't even exist.

    For instance heres a few referring urls:
    http://www.clickpointsearch.com/index.php?search=MYKEYWORDSHERE
    http://www.seekfindtraffic.info/index.php?search=MYKEYWORDSHERE
    http://www.discovervisit.info/index.php?search=MYKEYWORDSHERE

    The only site that did load was http://azcarsearch.com/ and it doesn't even have to do with my keywords...

    7search looks like the shittiest ppc network i've worked with so far.

    Those sites are feed landings where ads displayed depending on what search term was used. People come to those sites from doorways, blogs and other sources. Sometimes good sometimes not, with bots mixed or not.

    It is quite possible that, when reviewing the traffic sources you may come across landing pages that do not meet your standards. Often, it appears as though the affiliate may mask the page for whatever reason.

    7search constantly reviews our partners to ensure that they adhere to our network guidelines, but we also know that someone reviewing sources may become frustrated or distrustful of our service based on these findings.

    To combat this, 7search can now provide its users with an affiliate referrer parameter to add to their tracking URLs. This will provide you with the affiliate and sub affiliate identifier provided directly to us. This allows users to identify poor converting sources and block them from within their accounts.

    If you are interested, PM me your username or contact me via email - cleo@7search.com - and I will help you get started.

    Thanks,
    Cleo

    Good to see a response from 7 Search guys... I have been restricting myself to signup with 7 search due such reports from other users... Anyone else has had a good conversion with 7 search?

    I stick up for them too they have always (10 years i have used them) seemed to give me good results. They have even credited my account when they caught people fraudulently sending traffic. Speaks volumes for their honesty and encourages me to continue to use them.

    I used to run several successful cpa campaigns over there, but they die out to quick.

    I tried to use them for some v__gra campaigns awhile back. I never had any success with them.

    I know a company that gets conversions for tech related ppc traffic from 7search.
    Results may vary.

    You got it. Some stuff sells well some not so well. It's all about tracking and making sure you're making money. They have really good tracking down to the keyword.
