    If you spent only $1 and have made $5 you are doing well.

    Are you tracking? You will want to look at PPC-coach's tutorials if you haven't. He teaches how to counter click-fraud to weed out the auto-bot clicks and save you more money.

    Is your day one a full 24 hours? What times of the day got you the most clicks? What time of day was your conversion?

    Things like this will help you maximize your campaign.

    Keep at it. Good luck.

    I read some not so good things about 7 search, I tried it and I had no conversions at all.

    Sounds like they are not so bad, you had a conversion! Please continue to update us if you get more conversions.

          You probably want to look at how you can track it and then scale it up.

    These two things can help your conversions...

    - Setup Tracking 202 to track your keywords.

    - Split test new landing pages.

    But you main suggest right now since you are already converting would be to add more keywords to get more volume in 7Search.

    You need more traffic, that will be a start, then work on split testing with different offers to see which converts the best

        You're off to a good start. Once you start tracking you'll be able to make it that much better.

        You'll want to get Prosper202 set up, and run all your traffic through that. This will allow you to see what keywords are producing the conversions, and which ones you're just losing money on.

        7 Search also allows you to track the IDs of the websites that send you traffic, and allows you to block the ones that aren't converting (similar to the keywords.) You'll need to contact support at 7 Search and have them enable this feature for you.

            There are several things you can try:

            1. If you're hitting your daily budget cap, increase it.

            2. If you're bidding below 1st position for a keyword, bid higher.

            3. Add more keywords similar to the ones that bring you the conversions.

            4. Split test different ad copies. One may get more clicks than another. (Note: Be careful with this one. Ad copies can also affect conversion rates. In other words, you don't want an ad that gets more clicks if fewer of them convert!)

            5. Copy the campaign over to another traffic source. (Since you're just starting out, I would hold off on this. Focus on getting good at 7 Search till you master it.)

            - Make sure you are bidding in the #1 spot.

            - Set your budget really high.

            - Add more big keywords. Adding a few huge keywords can get you a lot more traffic than adding hundreds or small or mid-sized ones.

                At this point, I would advise you to focus on getting tracking set up and learning how to use it. That will let you optimize your campaigns and make them profitable.

                Then, once it's optimized, you should focus on scaling and bringing more volume!

    Great results! Keep it up man. Don't forget to always track your results, wipe out the bad keywords and bad affiliates.

    Also take care of your campaigns each day and monitor them closely.

    There are a few tracking software and platforms that would help you with tracking. You can you can use free ones like bitley, tinyurl and paid ones like linktrackr and adtrackz gold. These can definitely help you track your conversions but the paid ones allow you to track conversions, track split testing and a host of other things. I hope this helps but you are doing great for just getting started.....keep it up and start tracking your campaigns.

      You're getting 1 cent per click on 7Search? The minimum bid is 5 cents right?

      Will be GREAT once you start optimizing your campaign.

    He had such a good start, shame he seems to have given up - may be he found a better way of making money.

    Really keen to know where the OP ended up as he was one of the few I came across that was getting good ROI from 7Search and that was without doing any analysis.

    7 Search converts terribly for me. If anyone else can chime in with some advice for 7S in general, it would be much appreciated.

    PS: I've used 7S to promote everything from resumes to dating... and best results (lost the least money) with dating. Still sucked.

      Try POF for dating vertical. Some people are killing it with POF right now.

      Hi, did you have a chance to utilize the subid blocking feature as well as negative keywords? We've also set live a feature that allows you to override the keyword bids for particular traffic sources that you identify using the subid variable. Send me an email and perhaps we can make some things happen to get a more positive return for you. bstanley at 7search dot com.

    not bad conversion at all. If you can simply scale that, then you're making sick conversions. Yeah set up tracking too, and test different images. I've found that the right image can get your many more clicks. You seem to have many impressions and your clicks could be more.

    If we use subid blocking and negative keywords, we can identify more of the converting keywords and sources. This should get you to profit. I always try for the first 3 spots for my keywords, to get maximum traffic. Seems to work but not able to scale up.

    any advice on bidding keywords? is it necessary to bid higher close to first position because i heard from someone that said will get higher quality and more chance of conversion?
    When to determine to block subid? after recieving 50 or 100 clicks from the same subid with no conversion?

    7Search sells a click for as low as $0.01. 93 clicks times $0.01 is nearly a dollar.
