    I did a search for anything SearchAnyway related on this forum and there were two threads with zero replies so I figure I would introduce it here.

    SearchAnyway offers a search engine which generates PPC ads. This search engine can be rebranded completely. Pre-made templates are offered for free for new affiliates which are also easy to dissect if you know basic HTML. They also give you the ability to check General Stats, Stats By Period, Daily Stats, Hourly Stats, Referral Stats, Click Stats (keywords, number of clicks, cost per click, total money made), Global Click Stats.

    If there is more need for information, please reply and I will try my best to answer any questions. I'm unsure about what else to say at the moment heh.

    Normal Link: http://www.searchanyway.com/

    Good luck to those who jump on this.

    Edit: I forgot to say but the whole registration system is not completely automated. If you don't fill in much of your information, you'll likely get an e-mail requesting it. Answer the questions and the staff should activate your account almost immediately.

    Yes im already using google cse for a uk targeted site, but thought it might be a good alternative to having google logos all over it! lol

    You receive 5% of your referral's total earnings. You can also increase revenue share from 60 to 70% if you bring quality traffic. Lack of inconvenient google logos makes more room for creativity which could possibly ease targeting specific markets. I prefer it over dealing with google search for that reason.

    Google custom search lets you drop your logo as well.. I'd say google has a higher market share and more recognition than some random search engine... ;)

    Google custom search is the best!

    I signed up with serachanyway a few weeks ago. I'm a novice at best.

    Can you suggested a good method to marketing a search engine at low or no cost?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't Google only pay you when a user searches and clicks on the ads at the top and not the results of the website/google search results? SearchAnyway allows you to get paid when someone clicks any result or any adsense/bidvertiser/etc. banners you camouflage in there.

    SearchAnyway's results are not as numerous in comparison to Google's however. By that I mean some searches return 1 result and some return 15. But if you can narrow down which keywords return the most results and link them on the index page, it should influence a higher CTR.

    @amfsound: You could always try exchanging links through websites like http://www.linkmarket.com, submitting to StumbleUpon exchange or other web directories. You can also try putting your search engine up on social book marking websites. I advise you to try and target a specific market though. It might give you an easier time starting with it.

    You just said that their results are not that great, why would someone you have searching through there waste their time with it if the results are crap?

    Well, to be perfectly honest with you, bhnoobz, I'm using SearchAnyway because of the following reasons: I'm still a nubcake, I'm influenced by a set of instructions and screenshots from another source and I'd like to test which I would have an easier time with between SearchAnyway and Google.

    I only hope to bring out the best potential of SearchAnyway and hopefully be able to compete with those using Google custom search.
