Not all reviews are factual, you will know that when they will review your own site. They will do it just to ruin the integrity of your site.
One concrete example of a review that is not true is the Scamadviser’s review of my site. Let’s take a look at what this, scamadviser.com says about https://affiliatemarketingontheweb.com.
This is what they say about the site:
How did affiliatemarketingontheweb.com get a Trust Score of 24%?
When checking affiliatemarketingontheweb.com we looked at many factors, such as the ownership details, location, popularity and other sites relating to reviews, threats, phishing etc. Although a site like may have a high trust rating, it’s worth just checking the countries involved as these could indicate that goods would be shipped from abroad rather than your home country.
The internet is populated with many fake and scam sites – with many being created daily purely to look genuine. Even many review sites are tainted with fake reviews making it almost impossible for somebody to detect a safe site from a scam. We attempt to analyse the website information and provide a trust guide that will help you determine the risk rating of.
The owner of the website is using a service to hide their identity
This website is 137 Days old
The website expected life (365 days) is relatively short.
The website appears to be less than six months old
Although this website appears to be based in the United States there are other countries involved and you should review this information carefully and decide if it is as you expect.This website is very new, and as such doesn’t have an online reputation yet. As with all new businesses, we suggest that you take care and if necessary get in contact with the owners before placing an order of value.
This site is using an anonymous service – which prevents us from identifying the site owner. This can sometimes be just so that the owner does not receive spam, but be aware that many scam sites use this as a method to hide their identity. If this is an ecommerce site – we would suggest you confirm the business address with the website owners.
The website has been newly registered with a short life expectancy, which follows the pattern used by many fraudulent and fake selling websites. Please be vigilant and take extra care before providing any payment information.
I own this site “affiliatemarketingontheweb.com”, and I know the review is inaccurate and fallacious.
Taking the statement, “The website has been newly registered with a short life expectancy”. What do they mean by “short life expectancy“?
It is obvious that this review is useless and no basis. Is there a domain registered on a monthly, quarterly, or six months basis?
As far as I know, every site is registered once and a domain name is renewed on a yearly basis unless you bought it for two years or five years. Why is it categorized with a short life expectancy while in fact, a site is a site forever as long as you pay your membership to the Web Host, and for the domain to be renewed at the end of the year, every two years or five years?
For what is this “scamadviser.com” to have authority over other sites? I would believe if it comes from WordPress, Google and other sites with authority.
They don’t know what they are talking, they just take advantage of every site to leverage through their destructive unfounded reviews. What are we trying to point out here? They just want the traffic and they wanted to demolish any site starting to grow as a business.
Scamadviser does not really review a site but just copy their review for other sites and paste it as a review for your own site. Take a look at this review above, copy it and compare to the other reviews of Scamadviser on other sites they are exactly the same.
Let’s take the following statements as an example:
Although a site like may have a high trust rating, it’s worth just checking the countries involved as these could indicate that goods would be shipped from abroad rather than your home country.
Is my site engaged in a shipment of products? It’s a big NO! It’s a blog site. If there are ads published on my site that’s the responsibility and reliability of the Advertisers.
I would say, not all site reviews we read are true and there is a need to examine it. Not all sites are a reliable source of information. Otherwise, they belong to scams because they use your site for their own personal growth and you are the victim.
If scamadviser.com does not rectify its way of having site reviews it will continue to be categorized as a scam that people should avoid.
Scamadviser.com says “Even many review sites are tainted with fake reviews making it almost impossible for somebody to detect a safe site from a scam.” They are right for this is the kind of review they wanted people to read. They have swallowed their own words.
