    Lots of Hubbers signed up over there a while back...
    Are you seeing good results?

    I'm finding that the pictures are getting all the attention, not the documents and links.

    What's worse- I put up some images as a joke and people are complimenting my photography skills... I don't really have the heart to say that a lot of them are stock photos that I Photoshopped...

      I kinda signed up to it, but never got around to using it properly. 

      I got the feeling that it was a bit of a dead end.

    I don't get much from Redgage. I've had a some views come from there, but nothing to compare it. wink

    joined 2 months ago. I get a little traffic from there but i think that is likely to be other Hubbers. I did get a featured Blog and win the daily drawing once so not bad for minimal effort.

    I had a dekko at RedGage when that HP forum thread was posted a few weeks ago.  I may have got hold of the wrong end of the stick, but I gather that they don't pay you in actual money - you just get a Visa card with some credit on it once you reach their payout threshold?  I'm not interested in having any more bits of rectangular plastic in my wallet so it's a no-no for me.

      You have to pay a fee to use it, too.

    Won the daily draw, been featured... quite a nice backlink for SEO though.

    I signed up for Red Gage a while back in the big wave of Red Gage mania. I got something on the feature page for a little while. I don't know if it my internet connection or the site, but I do not find posting on Red Gage user friendly. In fact it is down right frustrating. The little cursor doesn't work well, and the whole thing doesn't always load right. I find that Google returns more traffic than Red Gage. I've abandon RG for now.

      actually i'm finding the website doesn't load well at all for me, either. I've checked it out, but it's a little aggravating. Sometimes I end up having to go back to manually, the drop down menus just don't work.. What's this about a fee? I didn't see that part. Will have to look into that.

    There's definitely problems with loading the program and it's extremely frustrating.  I haven't focussed on it, but have had successful traffic from there.  I, too, noticed that the photography receives most of the attention.  I thought the fee was for the first time use of the card.  Also, for Canadians, there is no explanation of how payments are made.  hmm  As a result, I'm not there that often.

    Just caught up with this thread and have to say I agree with the poster who said its great for piccies. I got complimented on a stock photo I used on a hub link last week. I just had to sort of mumble a thanks or words to that effect. I don't think anyone reads links - they look at pics and considerng the best pics there are your own, you are giving them away when you see what people pay on the web for quality pics.
    Not seen any return by way of quality backlinks either. Its just as well I like the site and the people on it, else I'd bodyswerve it.

    But I must say, I have met many hubbers through RedGage than on this site that I hadn't met before....that's so peculiar!!! hmm

    I don't think i have got any quality back links from there. But I have so far made some 112 $ in Redgage and have cashed out $100. However, I am not liking the RedGage card where they deduct a fees on transaction and card fees. I wish they had Paypal instead.

    I just signed up to it. The design of the site is confusing. I guess I'll have to get used to it. I may not use it after hearing your complaints about the redgage card.

    I joined redgage a couple of months ago  AND No you do not pay anything to join.  I won the award the very first day and collected a cool $25.00  that was terrific  It took about 3 weeks to get the credit card,  and I spent it no problems in Australia with no trouble. 

    Apart from that I have had a few comments on photos and have had several clicks on articles,  but since then only earned about 70 cents. 
    The initial win was great though  and yes there are heaps of hubpage members over there.
