Nearly 5 years ago, I published an article titled Traffic Sources Based On Experience and both 7Search and LeadImpact were recommended in it. Over the years, they have both been a great source of traffic for our affiliates at PeerFly and thousands of people have made tons of money using them.
7Search is near and dear to my heart. I wrote my review of 7Search on November 16, 2011. I followed it up with a bunch of other articles about how to run and optimize campaigns using their traffic that have generated 563,558 page views and counting.
LeadImpact has also had a big impact on me. I spent quite a bit of money advertising with them, had many great campaigns, and published a bunch of articles that have gotten 216,641 page views on this blog.
But, they’re both gone now, so what can we do?
If you are looking for a great search ad network to run traffic then I recommend you give Bing Ads a try.
I recommended Bing Ads in my 2017 affiliate traffic sources and it’s still going strong.
You will find the quality traffic is much better than what you would typically see with 7Search. The CPCs will be higher, but your campaigns should convert better.
The first PPV network that I ran traffic with was DirectCPV (no longer recommended and how are they still in business?), but the traffic source I’ve recommended most and used most over the years was definitely LeadImpact.
Unfortunately, traditional PPV traffic is not performing like it used to. Desktop users are on a decline and that’s where a majority of the PPV networks make their money.
However, RTX Platform (formally 50onRed) is still alive and kicking.
PropellerAds has a very nice platform where you can bid on RON (run of network) PPV traffic and then optimize on source, device, carrier, etc.
As I mentioned, the affiliate marketing industry is constantly changing and it’s important that affiliates go with the flow. There is still ample opportunity to make money, but you have to keep testing traffic and searching for that winning campaign.
Let’s make some money!
