    I deal with CPV a lot and run of network is alot less targeted than a URL or Keyword campaign. RON is nice if you have a large budget, and you are able to hang in the game to see what works, because there will be a flood of traffic. It works well with larger markets such as biz opps, grants, insurance etc.. However, If you are on a tight budget then I suggest sticking with either url, or keyword campaigns. Be more specific with the keywords/urls you choose.. yes your traffic will be slow, but you will be able to stay a little longer and expand off of those results..

    Make sure you set up a tracking pixel to track EVERYTHING, This is going to be a key element for success.

    If you want, PM me and Ill let you in on my rotator that sets a pixel and tracks referrers. Maybe I can help, maybe not... it all depends on your market, how much traffic interest there is in the market, and what urls and keywords you use.

    I was going to try to start sort of a advertising co-op a few months back, but never followed through, but I would be glad to give you some advice in cpv.

    Yes, Nice looking site, but just keep in mind that if you are going to run that on a CPV network, you want ALL of your important info above the fold.

    The reason for this is because the networks have size dimensions for the pop. If your page is long, Directcpv will have scroll bars.. Thats not what we want.

    You probably have maybe 2-3 seconds to get the attention, before they move the mouse to the little x at top right. (campaign killer)

    So, the best size for a CPV page "normally" is about 700-750 pixels wide and 550-600 in height.

    Then, you can direct them to your page with a button... or better yet capture the email and market from there...

    also simple works much better with cpv just make sure you have a pretty strong headline, and benefits

    One question, why do you think this site would do poorly in search?

    I sell Yahoo RON and BT and alot of my clients that purchase RON are unhappy with it. This may be in part because their expectations are higher than they should be. RON is cheaper but as someone else said, you need a hefty budget to make it work effectively.

    yep, you can make the page using photoshop. A suggestion would be to test several versions of pages. Doesn't have to be fancy, as a matter of fact, I have used just a headline a subhead, and some bullet points before on simple html page. If you already know what works in this market then you are ahead of the game, if not test a few and see how they do.

    about your site, I would think as long as your content was diff than the rest, and you gathered some decent backlinks, write a few articles and work it a little... It might not do too bad.
