I can’t take it anymore

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

I’ve sat quiet long enough.

The email I got this morning was the last straw.

But first, here’s why I’m posting this.

I buy a lot of information products.

“How to make a gazillion dollars in 24 hours”

“How to get a gazillion links to your website”

“How to build a gazillion person email list”

“How to make gazillions off of adsense”

Some of them I buy to read at a later date. Some of them I read now.

Some of them have really good information in them.

Some of them are COMPLETE CRAP.

Because I buy a bunch of stuff, I have also been subscribed to a ton of

internet marketing “guru” newsletters.

I get tons of emails every day from them.

You know who they are, because you get them too. The ones who tell you:

“Don’t just send sales pitches to your email list. Send them valuable

information. And if you want to learn how to do this, BUY XXXXX!”

Then they proceed to send you an email every single day telling you to

buy something.

It ticks me off, and I’ve had enough of it.

So, for a long time now I’ve thought about reviewing all these products.

The ones that are good, I’ll tell you I think it was good.

The ones that are bad, I’ll tell you it’s total garbage.

The ones that have some good info in them, I just might summarize the good

parts of it for you so you don’t have to buy it.

I haven’t started doing this yet because I don’t have the time to do it, but

the email I got this morning was the last straw.

It was an email from Joel Comm advertising another one of his 500 words sites.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I totally respect Joel. I know the guy is a genious, but

the links he’s selling on these sites are complete CRAP.

Don’t buy them!

Why?

Look at the most recent site:

http://www.499sites.com

IT’S A PAGERANK 0!!!

Who are these people?

They’re paying between $50-$100 for a link from a pagerank 0 page!

And whats worse, this page isn’t about anything!

How much help do you think a link from a PR0 page that isn’t about your

topic is going to help you in Google OR Yahoo (Ok, so MSN is stupid, it might

help you there…).

IT WON’T.

But it gets worse!

On 499sites.com I clicked on the blog link and find a page that has a huge

testimonial from Michael Cheney saying how much of a genious Joel Comm

is with his software because Michael earned $21796.13 in the first 36 hours.

THIS IS SUCH A SCAM.

Of course Michael Cheney earned that. He set up a site, mailed it out to his

list of people who trust him, and they all bought these garbage links.

And it still gets worse!

Joel is selling the software for these sites to people like you and I.

How in the world do you think you’re going to make money with these sites

unless you have an email list of 50,000 webmasters who don’t really know

what they’re doing?

YOU’RE NOT!

Ok, ok…ok

Enough with the rant.

But you get it now.

If you want to buy links to promote your website, buy them from a site that’s

at least somewhat related to yours. Or, at least buy them from a high PR

site.

So, I’m going to start a newsletter for this:

http://www.whatscrapandwhatsnot.com

I won’t review every info product out there, but I’ll go back and review some

of the ones I’ve read over the past year. I’ll tell you which ones stunk and

which ones are great.
