Things that Blow with this tool (Mainly Stuff from Overture’s data format):
* Please note our tool currently assumes Google having double Yahoo!’s search traffic and Yahoo! having double MSN’s search volume. Depending on your topic / vertical and your geographic location the search engines may have vastly different search volumes. The tool can only possibly offer approximations. Exact search volumes are hard to find due to vanity searches, click bots, rank checkers, and other forms of automated traffic. Exceptionally valuable search terms show far greater volume than they actually have due to various competitive commercial forces causing greater automated search traffic.

Top 10 Pay Per Click search engines
Well first of all you should realize that Google isn’t everything. Yes it does produce fantastic results, return on investment is good, and there is a lot of visitors coming from there. But there is also a world of traffic outside of Google, and often it is less competitive to purchase, so print out this page and take a look at these other pay per click search engines. I especially recommend that you join ALL of the big 3 below:
The big 3:
Google Adwords – This is the biggest and best volume for traffic quality. Has a great user interface, however is also often the most expensive.
Yahoo Search Marketing – Also very good for targeted high quality traffic. Not as high a volume as Google, but still enough to be considered very significant. Don’t forget to sign up to Yahoo USA, Yahoo UK and Yahoo AUS individually, as you need to sign up to each one separately for some strange reason. It’s a bit of a nuisance doing this, but well worth it. Yahoo UK and USA in particular are absolute must haves, while Yahoo AUS is growing and has a fantastic Return on Investment per click.
MSN Adcenter – Growing all the time. Very good conversion rates. The volume of traffic is much lower than Google and is about half that of Yahoo, sometimes even less, but often comes cheaper with a higher return on investment. Well worth having.
Next 2 up and comers:
Looksmart – Often underrated, can produce very good return on investments.
Miva – Up and coming ppc search engine that has been known to produce good results.
Final 5 worth a go:
7search – A smaller search engine with good quality traffic. Good interface. They claim better ROI than either Google or Yahoo! because of their high quality traffic sources.
Go click – Cheap traffic, with a growing and loyal following. GoClick still lets you start an account with only $10 and bid from 1 cent.
Enhance – A strong emerging Pay Per Click search engine that has good solid quality control.
Search123 – One of the first PPC search engines. Cost effective with good support. Fund with $50 and they’ll give you $20 free.
