7Search Quick Facts:
7Search offers their partners three ad types to directly monetize their websites. Their display ads, known as AccessoryAds, are not contextual but display according to the appropriate category of the site they appear on, with a focus not to display ads from competitors. Their text-based link ads, also known as pay-per-text, are one-word advertisements in the form of text based links. Their sponsored search boxes pay partners for each qualified click that results from searches and can be upgraded to fully customizable “Private Label’ search box with added benefits and the 60% revenue share every other ad type yields.
7Search customer support is quick and typically responds within 4 hours while their FAQ home is impressively large, with hundreds (literally!) of different FAQs, covering every aspect of the program.
Their reporting tools provide daily activity, detailed clicks, searches and payment reports and are easily accessible from the affiliate account dashboard.
Unfortunately, on-site ads are not the main focus of 7Search and this is a good cause of concern. Throughout their site the program attempts to “recruit” publishers as affiliates and advertiser referrals and it generally seems that their operations are overstretched across many different areas of online marketing, with no specific focus on website advertisement. This is a worrying fact for potential publishers and is reflected in the feedback 7Search receives from many publishers who complain about low earnings.
They have been around for a long while and tried their hands on many different aspects of online marketing with different degrees of success. Today, they may provide good sponsored search engine services but apart from their customized search boxes there is little else that is noteworthy about the website advertisement deals 7Search offers their publishers.
