I am a member of Kooday myself and I was very exited... I still am in the sense that it is fun to do
But still I have now second thoughts. I am afraid Kooday won't make it.
Why? People can buy a keyword and link it to any site; there has to be no relevance. I can buy a keyword "dogs" and link a site about moterbikes to it.
The idea of buying keywords works obviously but I do not see how this concept can work. When Kooday is fully operational and people are going to use the search engine and they find a lot of irrelevant search results they wont come back and search with trusted Google again. Unless they are going to collect relevant sites from other search engines and show the bought keyword links as featured sites, like Google sponsored links.
People who visit Kooday now are buying and selling keywords and are not interested in products or services from others. When Kooday is fully operational they will still visit the site mainly to see if they still own their keyword and to see their earnings and points. So advertisers from other fields than traffic and business oppertunities will have little revenue from their spent money on keywords and ads.
Plus the fact that no-one replies to the support tickets, no recent news plus the crappy lay out...It does not give me much confidence in the future of Kooday. Unless things change drastically. I hope I am wrong, I invested quit a bit myself.
But when Kooday will make it, it is a lifetime oppertunity so you can take a calculated risk. I do now only reinvest the money I earn with selling keywords untill I have Gold status which gives more residual income. If Kooday dies I will only loose my first investments in Kooday dollars. If I am lucky I will earn my investment back and even make profit.... if Kooday stays around long enough. It is up to you if you are willing to take the risk....
If you would like to link your site or to a keyword there is an altenative: http://viralurl.com/best-offers/keywords You reserve a keyword for 1 or 3 years and keep it for the chosen time frame.
I am the owner and manually aprove all listings. So people can't link a motorbike site to the keyword "dog" on my site.
You can choose for 1 year or for a top position for 3 years.
You can ad a short description and an image.
The site is visited by all sorts of people, not only internet marketeers and is therefore also suited for niche sites.
Don't worry, this site will be around for a very long time.
If you are not interested in buying a keyword, visit the site any way. It is fun and you will find a lot of exiting offer.
