New PPC Search Engine.

Postby michaelb » Thu Aug 03, 2006 9:13 am

Hi all,

have you heard about SearchBigDaddy? Check the link in my sig.

I've recently joined and there seems to be quite a bit of "buzz" over it lately - I'm getting a few new emails about it every day, including from some quite well known "names".

They've got some great features and you can sign up for free, though there are upgrade options.

Check it out and let us know what you think.

Cheers,

Michael

Hi,

I have heard of it but I'm taking a wait and see approach with it.

It seems there are so many waves and fads that hit the Internet and fizzle out that I've become some-what of a sketic :? .

How has your experience been with it? Have you actually made any money from it?

Hi Sunshine,

I know what you mean about being skeptical.

I haven't actually scored any sales from it yet, but that could easily be because of the top keyword I've targetted and the offer I've linked it to.

I'd need more testing to be sure, but since it's free to join and seems to have quite a few members already, I figured it was very well worth a try.

I've amassed quite a few "PPC dollars" so I can "buy" a couple more top keyword positions to try.

Anyway, I view it as part of an overall & long term promotion strategy.

Cheers,

Michael

Hi Michael,

Thanks for responding. Maybe you can report back here and let us know how thing are going with you. Maybe it would help sketics like me if we know you're having success with it :).

and I should use this over google because...?

most new PPC SEs suffer from clickfraud; I doubt this one is any different.

Hi motheninja,

it's not direct competition for Google. SearchBigDaddy operates somewhat differently, and I can't see any reason why you couldn't use both.

With SearchBigDaddy you don't need to actually pay any money. You earn your "virtual PPC Money" by doing searches on your own portal and by referring other free members who then do searches on their own portals.

You get $50 worth of "virtual PPC Money" to start with and a free top keyword position. You can "buy" more top keyword positions using the "virtual PPC Money" that you acccumulate by doing searches on your own portal.

So as a free member, you needn't worry so much about "click fraud" as you're not actually spending any cash.

It's not to replace Google Adwords, but another promotional tool that you can add to your arsenal at no cost.

cheers,

Michael

Hi,

Does SearchBigDaddy search the entire web like Google?

If it searches the entire web, then I can certainly see using it, especially if I'm going to earn credit for using them that I wouldn't earn from Google.

Just wondering.

Hi Sunshine,

it seems to have a very wide reach, maybe not yet as much as Google, but it's growing.

Why not try a few searches on my portal (the link is the second one in my sig) and see what you think? Or, since it's free and you can delete your account at any time, you could sign up (through the third link in my sig) and try it that way.

By the way they've also just added a free blogging platform/host for members too.

Try it and let me know what you think.

Cheers,

Michael

Hi,

I am a keyword manager in Search Big Daddy. I think its a great new search engine. It is now a little over a year old. It was created by Troy Warren, he has been in the advertising market for many years. Search Big Daddy is now expanding with Big Daddy Friends, Videos, local city portals across the USA and just recently school fundraising in elementry, middle school and High schools. A small percentage of the advertising from local city search engines will be given to the schools.

You can sponsor a school for only $99 a year and then earn 10% of the advertising from the local city search engine. Its a great opportunity for the school and you too.

To Your Success,
Les

Hello,
I am a dunce when it comes to ppc and others. Can you help me understand some of this? Because i am lost with this. I spent so much money on google adwords and yahoo search that it has almost put me in the poor house. I guess that's because i don't know what i'm doing. Ex. i put up a site on yahoo search in 2 weeks i spent over $750.00 and no responses. Can you advise me about your ppc program? :?

Instead of trying yet another search engine, I would suggest you take some time and even invest some money to learn more about how pay-per-click works and how you can lower your cost and increase your conversions.

If you are promoting affiliate programs, a great guide is Rosalind Gardner's Super Affiliate Handbook. If you are promoting your own website, or basically anything, Perry Marshall's Definitive Guide to Google Adwords is a must-have reference guide.

I agree with Lynn. Knowledge on how the system works would be a great advantage for PPC. Some lose a lot of money to this because they jump in without the proper education on how it fully works - the pro's and con's of doing it as a newbie.

The main reason to stick with the more established engines is that they are far more vigilant on click fraud and employ more advanced algorithms to protect the integrity of their network.
