    So I had a site that was banned by Adsense and de-indexed 3 or 4 years ago. Forgot about the site and went on with my life. Well last month the site started appearing back in G and serped page 1 #4 for its main keyword.

    In an effort to monetize the site, I ended up using 7Search PPC program. Now I know I was not expecting much, but the earnings per click sucks big time. How bad, how about .003. Yes, that is right not even a penny per click.

    Just to compare. I have a duplicate site in G that ranks just above this and with Adsense earns approx $1.10 per click. So if your looking for a solid earner, 7search is not it.

    I don't know how this company stays in business, I've yet to hear anything good about them from anyone.

    Their traffic quality is abysmal as well. I had a site last year that was converting at 5% on a $20 sale, I sent 1k hits from 7 search using the exact same keywords I was using with good results in bing and google - not a single sale.

    Without knowing more about your offer and how you set up your campaigns, I can only offer up general suggestions which could have made a difference for you. Maybe your offer was too general, your keywords too broad, or perhaps your offer was in a vertical that does not perform well on our network?

    Keywords that perform well on Google and Bing are not necessarily going to perform the same on the 7search network. We provide an integrated keyword suggestion tool which provides you with accurate data on search terms on our network, and this should always be the first place advertisers look to bolster their campaigns.

    If you have interest in testing a new offer with 7search, please DM me here and I will be happy to "talk shop" to help you get your offers of on the right foot.

    Best regards,

    Cleo

    IMO, 7search has really taken a dive in their traffic quality enforcement. I've submittted tickets and got the standard "maybe your keywords are too broad". Issue is that the ticket was submitted because I caught bot traffic clicking and it resulted in extremely poor quality.

    I used to recommend them, but not anymore. It's a shame too, I really liked their traffic and prices.

    B*S*......their traffic is about as useful as a chocolate firegaurd. I too recied tens of thousands of "hits" and about 2 sign ups...This was 6+ years ago. I dumped them. and no & search mod/owner/employee i do not want your help....

    I agree with the above guy..How the hell do they stay in biz? That to me is about their most impressive biz! If they can make money sellnig that traffic you can make money ANYWAY!!!

    Guys, are You check traffic sources? Some months ago I run test campaign at 7search and after I check from which pages traffic come to my test page (arbitrage test page), I do not wonder why they click so badly - mainly of my traffic come from overstuffed with adds landing pages. So you get what you pay for, cheap leftovers from squeezed till last drop traffic.

    So far I do not found how to convert such traffic, so give up with these company.

    A couple years back I did some work for someone that was running his own PPC network using 7Search and some other feeds for his results... He would tell me all the time how some of the guys using his system were doing blackhat things to basically rip him off but since he would get the money from 7search and pay them a portion of that he wasn't too concerned since 7search never caught them doing it. I think he even encouraged some of those guys to send more "traffic".. LOL

    I'm a newbie who has tried two ad campaigns with 7search and I have to said that I'm really disappointed with the results. I've used long tail keywords (3-4 words) and haven't turned a profit. I put in $50 and they matched it for me so I still have $44 left to use but I think it's a waste of my time. I want to buy traffic that will convert. Any suggestions?

    why dont you go at fiverr and buy some vouchers for $5? I noticed a guy selling 18 x $100 adwords vouchers. so you can tru - everything you can loose is $5.
