Hi Andrea, I don't have a lot of direct experience with abc ... but I have experiences with second tier ppc. It is almost impossible for anyone to say your campaign will work. With some second tier ppc the odds are pretty long a campaign will work because of inherent fraud issues. Based on my experiences and communication with others, this doesn't seem to be the case with ABC. The only way to find out really is to test it. For starters, they offer $100 advertising with $100 deposit so take advantage of that. The first consideration before setting up a campaign, is are you going to be able to actually tell if it works. Define what a conversion is on your site, then make sure you can capture traffic that comes from ABC and identify the traffic that does convert. As with any ppc, it may not be the traffic source that is the reason a visitor might not convert. It could be many things such as keyword selection, competition, landing page. If you have another ppc campaign that is successful, try to mimic that as much as possible with your new campaigns. If you don't have a successful ppc campaign, I would start with adwords instead and limit advertising being shown only on Google (not search partners and adsense). As you start your campaign use a lower budget, then as you have success with conversions increase your budget based on that. Keep us posted if you do give it a try!

I didn't even know 5 billion searches per month was possible. But anyway, google adsense is expensive but it is a great program that should make you money long-term if you stick with it.

When you have a chance, could you please look at my thread just below at Yahoo & Server Logs Don't Line Up. Very similar to this discussion and I'm looking for insight.

Thanks!
