So We Weren’t The Only Pair To Think BlowSearch Was A Hoax

Apparently Joe Holcomb, a former executive at Blowsearch thought so too! I should really voice my opinion across more venues…..

Let’s see, Blowsearch, yes, Nic and I first came across them at SES New York, where they gave us free t-shirts and a winning pitch to try out their new engine. We are always on the look out for new advertising space, at least to test on, so we gave them a shot. Fifty dollars, and two minutes later, we had received no leads. So, we contacted Blowsearch to plead our case or at least, to let them know how poor a service they are providing. To which they replied that our 50 dollars was used up fair and square…….right 50 dollars on a nobody engine gone in no time with no results, seems fair to me!

What’s important and at the same time SWEET is that Holcomb, whom used to plug BlowSearch’s highly advanced click fraud defences on his Blog: AGoToGuy’s Weblog is now spewing the truth. It was all marketing spin…..there’s a shocker!

Nic’N'Cher now think that cute boys are not a reason to sign up with new search engines.

    Guy actually you got it wrong. If you read the article he clearly says that their click fraud detection product was not a joke and that the BlowSearch advertisers on the MyGeek network were not protected yet by it.

    You’re right, Click Defender was never launched but that is not to say that BlowSearch was not spun as a solution to click fraud. This was their platform, their one difference from the big engines that would make them stand out. I have followed Holcomb’s blog since we signed up with BlowSearch, and even after our sour experience with them was tempted to give them another try, afterall, surely a search engine can’t just claim to guarantee click fraud free traffic and then not produce….. Regardless of whether BlowSearch was using Click Defender or MyGeek’s tools, Holcomb spun them to be a genius click fraud defender, which was just not the case. Maybe if they had stayed with the Click Defender after their original test, this would be true. Check out this wired article, Wired News: BlowSearch Tackles Click Fraud
