Does 7Search traffic convert for ANYTHING?

Profile picture of the author MarathonMan by MarathonMan Posted: 01/29/2012
I ran four campaigns up to 300+ clicks on 7search, all in different niches. I only got a few conversions on one of them, and the others I ran up hundreds of clicks without a single conversion.

I know there are people who use 7search profitably, but what strategy can there possibly be other then throwing pasta at the wall to see what sticks? It seems a bit fishy to me that targeted ads to excellent keywords can have such an abysmal conversion rate..

    Yes it works. You have to do 2 things:

    1.) Block bad sites.

    2.) Start every bid at a penny, (yes i know they say the min is a nickel, but there's a way around that).

    I've been showing people 7search for years now and it does work.

    I tried lowering bids, but if I go too low I never get any traffic at all - and these are campaigns with several hundred keywords.

    Aniket, I'd love to try Facebook as well - I'm just trying to decide if i should drop 7search.

    I'm done promoting 7search... I used to write about it, but looks like its 40% fraud now.

    7 search works for quick email and zip submits. Doesn't work for trial offers for skin cream etc... (at least for me it doesn't)

    But it is a bit of a pita with how much dicking around and monitoring you do to get the campaigns right. Once you do they will be profitable.

    Don't expect a landslide of profits though.

    You have to have multiple campaigns, and test a few different landers. Don't just direct link them (Works sometimes). Better to get a hook on them to grab their attention even if it is geo as the hook. You get their attention for a few seconds you usually have them.

    You definitely have to skim the fraud sites out though. Don't plan on quitting your day job off one campaign either.

    Have campaigns I am tweaking now in 7 search, directcpv, and adwords...

    The 7 search traffic for one of the offers is actually converting better than the CPV. Which actually surprised me. The offer is an email submit... same lander on both.

    So you say a landing page actually helps up conversions? I always thought the extra step would knock the percentage down.

    bidding a penny will get you almost no traffic,you have to be in the top 3 positions on broad keywords

    Depends on the offer... Depends on how you draw them to clicking through... or the hook, the presell, whatever you want to call it. Just has to be a quick attention getter.

    7search works well with short form offer like email submit or some free dating site( at least it works for me) I've never tried paid offer with them before.

    Just be honest and tell me how many of you create lander and than promote offers ? Direct liking is not always a good option. For short submits yea it works but for trails and other high payout offers direct linking method does n`t always work.

    I create landers about 50-75% of the time.

    affiliates marketers out there on the web you can promote different programs and directly link to the advertiser sites without any problems. The great thing is that you can get a campaign up and within minutes start receiving a good amount of traffic. The key is going with keywords that have at least 2 words in them to help your conversion rates.

    These small PPC companies are full of click fraud and usually don't have enough publisher to get decent traffic.

    So the result is poor...

    Get in touch with 7 search. Ask them to enable RID Blocking for you. Once that is done.. You would include the variables ###KEYWORD###-###AFFID###-###RID### at the end of your affiliate link. Then look up your reporting in your CPA account and look for the Sub Ids that have multiple clicks but no conversions. Get these Sub Ids and paste them in 7 search. To do this visit the My Account section of your account at 7 search and click the edit … link next to Preferences. Next, click the Manage SubID blocks>> link found in the Account Tools section.Finally, add the unique source ID code and click the “Block SubIDs” button to save. Note that you can set these blocks per campaign (if desired)

    I heard its not difficult once you learn how, to make 7search profitable

    it is difficult, however, to scale it up, since the volume of traffic is simply too low
