allows advertisers to list their site in our search engine and
receive visitors at a cost-per-click basis, as low as $.01 per
click. Our service is much more
cost effective than other advertising methods because our service
is highly targeted. Instead of having your banner show up randomly
on different sites and hoping people will click your link, surfers
visit our site looking for specific content using keywords you
relate to your site, just like any other search engine.
How much does it cost and how many visitors will I receive?
A minimum deposit is $10, but in return, you will receive $20 in
bids to use for keyword bids. You must bid at least $.01 for each
keyword you list. Traffic to your site from
Solidhits.com depends on many factors. For example, if
you listed all your keywords at 1 penny each, and your $20 balance
was spent on clicks to your site using the keywords you had bid 1
penny on, that would give you 2,000 visits for only $10!!
How does your ranking system work?
All ranking is based on advertiser bids. Follow this scenario:
Let's say John places a bid on the keyword "games" for $.01. If
there are no other bids on that keyword, John would automatically
have the #1 ranking for that keyword. If you come into the
picture, and place a bid on the keyword "games" for $.02 , you
would then become the #1 ranking site for that keyword, and John,
saying that he is still bidding $.01 for "games," would be moved
down to the #2 ranking site. So basically, the highest bidder for
a specific keyword will always receive the highest ranking for
that specific keyword, and lower bidders' listings will appear
under the highest bidder in descending order of their bid amount.
How many keywords am I allowed to bid on?
As many as you want. There is no limit to the amount of keywords
you can bid on, as long as the keywords you bid on are related to
How exactly is my balance spent?
Every time a surfer clicks on a link to your site after searching
with a keyword you made a bid on, the bid amount for the keyword
used to find your site will be automatically deducted from your
