Paid Inclusion Forum
Why would anyone pay to be included in a search engine's listings without a guarantee of ranking well for particular terms?

That can mean highly-qualified traffic at a price less than obtained through paid placement programs. Come get an overview of paid inclusion, advice from those who've used various programs offered and pose questions to paid inclusion vendors during Q&A.;
