I was contacted by RedZee about a week ago, they're offering inclusion in the paid search feature of the site. I did some research and asked some questions related to the issues people seem to have with the way the site operates as well as other PPC-related issues.
He went on to explain, "Unfortunately, Google pushes that stuff to the top of their listings, despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of it is from 05. Maybe they are concerned with the market share that RedZee is acquiring?"
While I do agree that the majority of these bad reviews are approximately around 2005, i've seen comments to those articles dating back just a couple of months. I'm willing to give them a shot like I would any other company that appeals to the needs of our company, but i'd like to hear from any of you who have had recent experiences with RedZee, with specific regard to ease-of-search and advertising.
For my part, I've never received a cold call from a PPC provider that was worthwhile (I've spoken to quite a few!). They never have enough visitors to generate anything like acceptable ROI for the costs they seek to attract.

The insinuation that Google doctors their listings specifically to knock down PPC providers with low levels of traffic would be a giant red flag for me too. Although perhaps Google also doctor the trends numbers too?
