Kanoodle Follow Up

After writing my Kanoodle post I did speak to the Vise President and he talked me into putting more money into the account and giving them a second chance. Out of respect that they did take the time to call and they said they would try to change my results I did give them that chance. I explained to him that I didnt mind paying for clicks but was responsible for getting my advertisers results. He assured me he understood my concerns and would put us in a different program. I am afraid I do not have any good news as we received the exact same results as the first time. I then started to back track all the clicks that came into our site from the referring URL's and searched Hamptons Bride Magazine, we were not found in any of the databases. I then searched keywords that I had purchased and did find our site in some of the them. This showed me these search engines were keyword based only, meaning you can only find your site under the keywords you purchase. My curiosity got the best of me so I decided to see if Kanoodle used their own PPC program. I went to all the search engines that were sending me "Zero" second clicks and searched "Kanoodle, PPC, Pay Per Click and so on. Kanoodle didn't come up in any of the search engines. Hmmmmmmm I find that a bit odd, if it was going to bring them more customers, which in return would bring them more money, why wouldn't they be in their own search network. If you look at the .pdf that I uploaded and go to the referring URL's you can do your own research and come to your own conclusions. I just want to set the record straight that I am totally for PPC programs and we get great results from Google and Yahoo.

Thanks,
John
