It would appear that Citysearch is more concerned with making advertising dollars than fact checking the reviews they receive.
In addition to their obvious greed, they seem uncaring as to the damage they cause to businesses they post reviews of.
Honestly, I wouldn't expect a review of every post made, but not handling false reviews is shameful.

Let me help you out-
If you see a review written by the same individual for 4 separate businesses in four separate states, its bogus. Paying college students to write false reviews is common. I would expect you would be more careful about that.
If you see a review of four separate businesses in the same city, on the same day and three are negative (using almost identical language) and one is positive, it's bogus.
To this I am speaking to Swimming Pool Construction in particular. Do you actually believe that this individual built FOUR swimming pools in the same day?! Really?
It didn't occur to you that the last business (the one that received the positive review) might have posted the other three?
If you are reading this, please ignore reviews on this site. They are inaccurate and untrue.

I signed up with citysearch around the end of October 2008 - for 3 months. Prior to that, when doing searches, my website and/or business name (linked to other sites such as merchantcircle, etc) would come up on page one or two. I was hoping being a featured site would help my business, instead business decreased in the last couple months (of course the great economic bailout impacted it as well - how wonderful).

I asked for a print out of my clicks - but the only one they could give me said the clicks originated from the Cleveland area (which is my marketing area) - I was hoping for more information - such as which city, which sites they clicked on, etc - so I could enhance my advertising in those areas more. It sounds like they are working on a more detailed one - that would be nice. I am still unsure about the clicks being billed properly - according to CitySearch - I have over 1000 clicks - but noone is mentioning the coupons I have linked to the CitySearch sites - but I realize there are a lot of web surfers.

We merged two businesses together in 1994 - but we kept the old name listed along with a second line - CitySearch has linked our featured results to this old name instead of the current business name - the one that is listed on our building, invoices, etc. - I asked to have this corrected numerous times - still wrong. They changed my written text - more to promote AC Delco (we are an AC Delco service center) then to promote my business - without my request or approval.

Originally when I signed up, I thought I had a $500 "click" cap for the three months. I am being told it was $500 per month - my fault - asked for details in writing - did not receive and trusted them - my mistake.

I have asked for answers about my account numerous times, to several e-mails - it took some time (I asked during the holidays - so they were short handed) but they are responding to my requests - in writing as I requested. Their customer service could be a bit better. I just wish the economy would straighten out so the clicks on my business would help me bring in more customers.
