Search123 Quick Facts:
Search123 is part of ValueClick group which includes big names like the leading affiliate market Commission Junction and web ad giant ValueClick Media. As a member of ValueClick group, Search123 enjoys great stability and sports powerful partnerships.
Search123 does not have the ad variety and multitude of services ValueClick Media offers; instead they only work with pay-per-click advertisements and web search boxes that display -you guessed it- pay-per-click advertisements.
Their search results and sponsored ads are built to work complementary to similar CPC services, which is a big plus, and they have the huge advantage of sharing their ad inventory with the humongous ValueClick networks inventory as well as third-party networks.
Search123 offers decent reporting tools that are updated hourly and control tools are just right for the job. Everything is clean and easy-to-use, although that's not hard to achieve with such a straightforward CPC-only network.
The network pays through PayPal or check, on a NET 30 schedule with a minimum payout of £100. Search123 has several quality standards, with bigger publishers enjoying higher payout percentages and other special privileges.
All in all, Search123 is more than meets the eye. They are stable and compact, with a huge ad inventory and powerful partnerships and their ads can be used alongside (and complementary to) similar programs. Publishers looking to implement web search functionality on their websites should seriously consider Search123 as one of their best options.
