Last week I bought $250 PPC(pay per click) advertising from www.anoox.com, their cheap cost and high Alexa traffic rank attract me. They introduce their self is a search engine that is unique in two fundamental ways: AnooX search results are powered by the People; so unlike Google or Yahoo where machines decide on the search results, with AnooX search results are 1st machine generated but ultimately democratically decided by the vote of the people. Secondly, AnooX is operated on a Community based (not profit motivated) business model, very much like Craigslist, as such cost of search engine Advertising is much lower through AnooX.
But now I am very angry I think I was swindled. After added keywords few days later, I checked from google analysis there’s no traffic from their website, but their backend shows many people have clicked my advertising. And their webmaster tools is very poor, expect add keywords, I cannot know my click details, can’t do anything, so I think I was swindled.
I tried to contact with them, but there’s no contact info at their website. There’s no office phone, no customer service email, no way to contact them. I sent many online support tickets to them, expect the first time I ask them how to proceed payment, they haven’t reply me any questions, they are disappeared.
I believe ANOOX is a scam company but I can’t get my money back now. I want to tell everybody don’t go near them.
