    Ok, so I spent a lot of time and money messing around with 7 search in the past. i kept losing money because I was getting clicks from bots. And yes they were bots, there is no way around it. I was told to append my links with the ###Keyword### variable to track which keywords were actually converting. Same thing again. A few conversions then all of a sudden my EPC went from .15 back to .02. I said that is it. There is no way to make money with this shitty network.

    I was wrong. I was talking to a friend of mine who was making money with 7search. I sat down with him in utter amazement. Was he making a fortune? No, but he was making money. He told me about a little secret on their platform on how to weed out shit publishers.

    They have a tool where you can weed out the crap yourself. It does work but you have to ask them to enable it on your account. Here is how it works.###KEYWORD### is to track the keywords ###RID### is to track referring site and ###AFFID### is to track the affiliate. Once they enable this in your features you just go to "my account" tab and click on preferences. You will then be able to block the non converting shit sites and affiliates.

    After I started doing this I started to make money. 7search is a decent network if you know how to get passed the bs. So if you gave up on them in the past I would suggest giving them a try again using the tools they have.

    Again, you have to contact them to enable these features or you will not have access to them.

    Yeah it's kind of annoying but you have to spend the money just to find all the fraud sites sending you traffic then weed them out. Plus you have to contact them to get more keywords added to your account and the ability to block affid's. Then their volume is really low overall so your not going to make that much money.

    Overall it's worth toying with but it's a lot of hassle. Plus they clearly don't try to stop the click fraud (there is a ton of it).

    i gave 7search a try too a little while ago, tried it with cpas with dirrect link. after a little (little more) tweaking, i managed to get 20 % of the invested money back. they've got lots of junk traffic..and takes time to filter it out.
