    To be honest, no, I've tried a few and they seem to be the ones that I like best. At least they pay, many of the ppc ones won't.

    Ok, because Im thinking to change my ads .
    that might pay a little bit higher..
    like yesterday my site gets 49 clicks and gross amount $2.055
    I only earned 0.822 because currently I only have 40% revenue.

    thats why im thinking of alternatives..

    by the way thanks..
    I'll stick to searchfeed for now.

    I'll try clicksor..too..

    the fraud is going to depend on vertical (a few good or bad publishers can make an account be good or crap). but the smaller engines are typically not going to have the highest traffic quality.

    I found Looksmart was brutal when I tried it though. Not only did they have an uber high bounce rate and no conversions, but they also sent a ton of traffic. that was like a yr ago though.

    I've been using searchfeed for some months, you'll always get 1-2cents per click, with the highest going to, max, 4-5cents
    I've always been paid, however
    The only annoying thing is that they actually show the gross amount of money you've earned
    So in your account you'll see "You've made 100$" but they will actually send you 50$ assuming your rev share is 50%

    Yeah, SearchFeed don't pay much - and that 'Gross Amount' reporting is a pain. Depending on your keywords, I've found RevenuePilot have higher payouts (but I haven't actually used them so I don't know if they pay or not).

    I used to use searchfeed about 3 years ago .. back then I could make 50-75 cents per click no problem. Those days were GREAT and are long gone unfortunately :( .. searchfeed was doing great back then, I wonder what caused them to start sucking so much the past few years.

    Hi Chad,

    You may want to check out Allfeeds.com - I use their XML Feeds program and have had good success with it. It's also very easy to use and fully customizable. You can click on the link in my signature if you want more information.

    HTH,
    Sam

    I am just inteterested in direct feeds not scripts/services to display them. Maybe allfeeds does offer that but I might have missed it.
