View Full Version : SearchFeed questions

After reading Chris's article on Searchfeed (http://www.websitepublisher.net/article/searchfeed-revenuepilot/), I have a few questions.

I'm considering setting up a few text links in the body of one of my websites, similar to what Chris is doing for the term "essays" here (http://www.online-literature.com/suntzu/).

1. Chris's article mentions that Searchfeed takes out a 50-70% commission. When I visit Searchfeed's site and look at the cost per click for certain searches, is this the amount I will be paid, or will it be the listed amount minus 50-70%?

2. Would a basic Searchfeed text link embedded in the body text of my website ( ex: "You can find more information on this type of product by searching the web (#).") count as a text ad and violate Google's TOS if shown on the same page as Adsense ads?

1. Say a search term is 18 cents and u get 30% cut you will get 6 cents.

2. No it does not violate tos. Google clearly states u cannot show similiar ads.. if you are linking to another page its okay..If you showed search feed results or ads with adsense on the same page that is a violation though..
