    Fraud protection or not, as 4-5 years ago, the best place for an advertiser to start their research is here:

    http://www.abcsearch.com/advertisers.php?sec=network

    It looks like the ABC network is a combination of low-volume, “OK” partners, and a number of questionable, low quality partners.

    Is it worth the bother? Many advertisers will conclude no, and assume that if the click fraud is being filtered, then the remainder of the traffic will amount to a handful of decent clicks mixed in with the lowest quality clicks the network feels they can get away with selling.

    Ha, I got so many questionable clicks from abcsearch.com (when I used Ask’s advertising platform most of the clicks came from abcsearch), that as an experiment I applied to become an affiliate. I took one of my sites that gets maybe 15 visitors/month and applied for it to be an abcsearch.com affiliate. On the questionairre it asked “where will you get traffic from” and I wrote: friends and family.

    I thought this was so outlandish they could never accept me, but to my surprise, my application was approved! They will take anyone.

    It’s interesting to me which part of a story will attract your eye. I checked out the press release at http://www.marketwire.com/mw/release_html_b1?release_id=242908
    and had forgotten that Daniel Yomtobian was the CEO of ABCSearch.
