Paid inclusion shambles

pay not to be indexed - is this an advance in technology

I tried two paid inclusion providers to see how they matched up.

company 1 - indexed and included on partner sites.
very pleased - indexes every 24 hours.

company 2 - seems to have trouble picking up pages.
data three weeks out of date.

I emailed company 2 who replied and said they found a page in lycos (which was already 3 weeks old) and no explanation of why it could not pick up changes. Why it had failed to do as it promised in the ad.

Company 2 seem to be clueless about technology and clueless about customer support. I have emailed them again asking for an explantion - at least!

I guess some "snake oil peddlers" moved from SEO to paid inclusion.

Thats it - I have vented!
