    Hey guys,

    I started PPC with adwords but account got suspended due to my mistake, but right before account was suspended, was making $150 / day. I just didn't bother with the hassle of getting new accounts again. I violated the policy of a vendor by bidding on keywords that weren't allowed. My fault.

    So then I tried Bing, same weight loss strategy used on adwords, optimized each day, but still lost $100 / week for 2 weeks, not many sales, got decent data though.

    I discovered POF recently and profited massively easily..still rising..so I'm sitting here dumbfounded by the thought of the opportunity cost of using Bing/Adwords vs POF/Facebook.

    Since POF and Facebook has extreme capability to target the right demographics, geo, gender, why would any good ppc marketer not focus on these networks and use something like Bing or adwords, or even 7search (everyone keeps complaining about quality there), why continue using these? The cost can actually quite high, it's not like overall campaign cost is cheap or something, which I would understand if it was.

    I feel like I'm missing something here..

    Any thoughts?

    There are all kinds of people on POF except the extremely wealthy, although there are some, but very limited

    Aside from people looking to hook up, what else is remarkable about the demographic that cruises POF. I thought it was only people looking to hook up with others.

    You guys are advertising other products and services unrelated to that or am I mistaken?

    @OP - trust me there is money to be made with Google and Bing maybe your campaigns didn't work out but others make a fortune at each of those.

    I've seen everything from skin care to car insurance promoted there.

    They have excellent targeting - I mean you can target by things like hair color, religion, drinking/smoking habits, profession, do they have pets, do they like games and puzzles, number of ads clicked, how far they are into their session, how many times they have logged into the site.

    Just to name a few; there's all the normal targeting options there too like location and stuff.

    Nice one, i will be trying out POF this month ending, if the funds are available.

    I have tried Facebook, and to be truthful, they're worth it. Seems like OP have a good review of POF.

    If you're doing dating on POF you pretty much have to use a landing page to bridge the gap between your ad and the offer. POF is really niche based think things like date a fireman or a doctor and your landing page has to sell that.

    Ah this thread picked up, I thought it was dead. Thanks HelloInsomnia, great answers. POF's targeting is what's powerful about it. As for offers, almost everything CAN work.

    It's more important to understand POF's demographic and weed out the type of ads that won't work rather than think about niches imo.

    HelloInsomnia - I think I'm currently just struggling with understanding how to get cheap clicks with ppc. I understand that there are many people doing very well via Adwords and Bing, but my feeling is that they are folks who already earn a lot of $ with other methods, and have the privilege to out bid the hell out of everyone.

    High bids aside, even if bidding high, I'm finding that Bing has extremely low volume of traffic. I don't know if it's because their keyword matching sucks or something else. With adwords, same approach, I remember the weight loss keywords I used had almost 10x the volume than Bing when porting that over. I understand that the 2 engines are different, so I didn't just straight port, I also used Bing's keyword research tool, still low volume. This applies not only to weight loss, but many other niches that I feel should be profitable with Bing's demographic, at least what I'm noticing so far from testing.

    Who will buy from RisingDarkness? I think you need a new Username! Ha, Ha!
    Here is a good (but not perfect) plan. I call it 'The Money Doubler BingAds Method'!
    1. Buy a ready to display ads BingAds Account (Not just coupon...) for 1/10th of the name price, that is $10 for $100 credit.
    2. Send this traffic to Amazon with medium cost clicks. NO need to Optimize Campaign, No need to Optimize Keywords, No Nothing! Just send it to Amazon so that the Amazon Cookie inserts into their PC.
    3. Sit back and enjoy seeing your $10 bucks to become $20! The easier Money Doubler i have seen in a long time!

    Is this perfect? Of course NOT! Where to find these accounts in a volume AND in the right price in order to make a living? Well, this is the difficult part. Most of the 'Legitimate' sellers in this forum are selling in higher prices, while the 'underground' ones are usually scammers, intending in a quick buck or so...Not to mention these that are claiming to have '$1K-2K Pre-loaded Accounts'! Oh Boy, can i have one? I'll make an honest review! Ha,Ha,Ha!

    The other of course option is to learn to make and operate these accounts, the correct way, so that you don't get banned.

    Either ways, i may be able to help! PM me if you have any inquiries. Regards.

    You do realize that's almost cookie stuffing and it will get you banned right ?
    Not to mention the cookies last only 24 hours and amazon's commission is too low to make a profit.
    I am pretty sure you never tried this method yourself so stop giving people false hopes.

    I tried Bing ads with CJ but with no luck. Now I have setup a campaign targeting clickbank product and a affiliate site.

    Any tips on setting up a campaign or targeting clickbank products.
