Anyone have any success converting anything with 7 search Pay Per Click

14 replies
Hey All,
I have been testing out 7 search Pay Per Click and am getting loads of clicks but not one conversion with a bunch of make money online affiliate offers and some CPA offers. I even tried a bunch of non IM offers such as weight loss and fitness and same thing, I get clicks but not one conversion. I have been giving these offers like 500 clicks each to see if I can get just one conversion and nothing. I am wondering if my clicks are from bots as I haven't had such trouble getting conversions with PPC since I was a newbie.

Has anyone who has tried 7 search PPC have any luck turning a profit with any of your campaigns or even get one conversion?

Beginning to think they are a waste of money and I should just stick with Adwords, Bing and Facebook.

    7search is infamous for fraud. If you use tracking, you will find that most of your clicks are coming from a combination of non-existent websites, non-english websites (for what is supposed to be english-language traffic), porn websites (for non-adult traffic), and websites that do forced ad clicks by popping up the ads in front of play buttons and download buttons whenever the button is clicked.

    If you want to keep trying them, make sure you use tracking that will give you all the details of where the clicks are coming from and write 7search and have them ad subid blocking to your account. When you add subid blocking, you can add it to your tracking link and identify the fraudulent traffic sources through the subid and block them. Of course, when you do that you will find that you are left with no traffic at all.

    7 search did not work out for me at all. Now I know why...

    Waste of money. It's appealing because you see low click costs and think even with a small conversion rate you'll profit. But the traffic is bad and if you're getting "loads of clicks" a red flag should be going off about where those clicks are coming from.

    I've seen clicks from third-level sources like this exceed Bing or Google PPC traffic, and that is quite unlikely.

    I recently finished with a campaign with this provider. Yes, very appealing because of the low-cost clicks, but, in my case, I would consider it worth it. Though I did not use a tracking pixel, I do have a record of the hits from Clickmeter as well as a view of what kind of interaction happened on my site.

    I requested only searchers from the United States and no mobile. My offer was an internet marketing course for $19.95 with a sales funnel and my cost to 7search was $50.

    All my hits were from the U.S., at least according to the report, and sites included freeonlinetextbooks(dot)com, mywordtemplates(dot)org, thenewsnerd(dot)com, quinarie(dot)com and several others. By far, and perhaps the most suspicious if you are looking for chicanery, was universalfwding(dot)com. It seems that this, without any further extension, will take the searcher to Yahoo search.

    Now perhaps I'm too naive to discount 7search unequivocally, but I had a lot of activity on my blog and I believe may have gotten 2 sales, one of which went up the funnel a step or two.

    Bottom line: Yes, you get what you pay for, but that doesn't necessarily mean unbridled fraud. They are one of the oldest search engines on the internet and, either they are masters of deceit, or they must be doing something right.

    I wouldn't use them as frequently as one of the major PPC engines, but I wouldn't rule them out entirely for another foray or two.

    If you have an interest, I can send you the report. And no, I am not an affiliate nor an employee.

    its not just me, alot of my marketer friends, gone away from 7search, the clicks, and traffic is useless junk.

    of course, it might work for some things, but cheap traffic is cheap for a reason.

    Useless traffic for me. Only useful traffic is from Google Adwords but their CPC is not worth it for many with small budgets.

    It's very low quality traffic and takes a fair bit to weed out the garbage. How much have you spend? 500 clicks doesn't sound like a much testing. How many keywords? How are you targeting?

      Hey Chris. I should have made it more clear but I was giving each of about 10 affiliate products I was promoting 500 clicks each so its 500 clicks X 10 products = 5000 clicks(cheap clicks like 5 cents each) and no conversions. Each account had at least 50 keywords and some had like 400. I promoted some make money online products, some weight loss and improve your golf game, healthy recipes ebooks and a few others. I targeted only english speaking countries.

    They've never worked for me nor for alot of people on here. Stick with Adwords, Bing Ads, and test some mobile traffic (direct response still applies here). I wouldn't advise 7search. Alot of people will agree. But there will always be 2 people out of 2,000 who says that they're making 9-figures a month with 7 search. Go with your hunch.

      Thanks Randall. Have you converted any affiliate products on Bing or has anyone else reading this have good success with Bing with your own products or affiliate products like products form Clickbank or JVzoo or even CPA offers?

    When buying traffic, I always remember: Cheap = Expensive .
    I rather buy traffic for $0.65 CPC and get a double opt-in rate of 30%-50%, instead of buying 7search traffic for $0.05-$0.15 CPC and get little, low quality leads

    7 search traffic is mainly bots. But, it's not just 7 search, most of the paid traffic today is bots.

    In any case, try a google search on this: "bot traffic 7 search" you will see what I mean.

    Yes, there seems to be a difference of opinion about the inexpensive search platforms. Kinda reminds me of the never-ending solo ads debate.

    And just like the solo ads strategy, you've got to find what works and works for you. That means time, focus and some money.

    I have met many in the internet marketing world who still truly believe in the qet-rich-quick model. Not only can you get rich quick, you can do it without risking any dough. I've been there. Maybe you have too.

    The thing is, being an internet marketer is being in business for yourself at the end of the day and, like any business that I know of, some money needs to be invested. Methods, strategies and service providers need to be explored and marketing experts have to be embraced or rejected.

    It takes some money to do that. And certainly, in the beginning, it takes some money for advertising. There are other ways, sure. But advertising is still the quickest way to get your product in front of potential customers.

    I know some of us really don't have any money to spare. And I know that some folks believe that advertising is just like playing the lottery. That's despite the fact that almost every business in the universe has an advertising strategy, even if it's only to hire someone to paint a sign for the front door.

    Like with this 7search thing. I had a fairly positive experience, your results may differ. But at the end of the day, you can't rely solely on the opinion of others. If I believed the negatives about every service or product discussed on Warrior Forum I wouldn't make any headway at all.

    Bad experiences can be just as educational as the positive ones, or they can become limiting generalizations that one carries around without any truly, in-depth experience.

    So, at the end of the day, I'm not recommending you give 7search a try. I'm just suggesting that we all try to keep an open mind. And that includes me. If you love internet marketing, invest your spare time and your spare cash in developing knowledge and expertise.

    Rich or poor, if you keep focused on your business you will find a path that's right for you.
