I usually write about all the cool things going on at SignArtEtc.com. Today I want to warn other business owners about a total scam from a company called Redz. I believe the company used to be called Redzee. They advertise themselves as a search engine and their product is sort of cool. Unfortunately, it produces no results.

Here is my actual data…comparing Redz vs. Google pay per click vs. Bing/Yahoo:

Date        Google Pay/Click       Redz                            Bing/Yahoo
Clicks   $ Revenue      Clicks $ Revenue        Clicks $ Revenue
2/28/11     127           $1262           13           $0                  7            $    0
3/01/11     123           $ 691            20           $0                12            $    0
3/02/11     121           $ 326            15           $0                17            $    0
3/03/11     124           $ 464              7           $0                12            $419
3/04/11       83           $1038         121           $0                14            $481
 More clicks from Redz than Google PPC???
3/05/11       38           $ 0              203           $0                  5            $    0
5 times more clicks from Redz than Google PPC…..interesting
3/06/11       53           $ 0                49           $0                11            $    0
3/07/11     127           $ 0                66           $0                10            $    0
3/08/11     110           $1338           12           $0                17            $    0
3/09/11     109           $ 828            33           $0                11            $414
3/10/11     102           $ 271              4           $0                13            $    0
3/11/11       89           $ 0               310          $0                15            $    0
3 times more clicks from Redz than Google PPC…..wow
3/12/11       28           $ 0                 25          $0                  3            $    0
3/13/11       29           $ 0                 58          $0                  3            $    0
3/14/11     128           $ 318             19          $0                11            $    0
3/15/11     111           $ 0                   9          $0                  8            $414

We have been in business almost 8 years….most of that time on the internet. We are B2B….so our orders and activity is down on the weekends. We are long time users of Google Analytics. Analytics is where this data comes from.

In Total 2/28/2011 – 3/15/2011
Google Pay per Click: 1502 visits, $7078 revenue
Redz : 964 visits, $0 revenue
Bing/Yahoo : 170 visits, $1729 revenue

I hope this helps someone decide to keep their hard earned money and not give it to Redz for no return on your investment.  I would guess their red zebra mascot is red because he is embarrassed to be part of a company that gives on-line services such a bad name.
