Online Product Reviews Trustworthy Or Not

Here is a question I ask my self every time I do an online search for a product review, "who the heck made this review". Whats the problem you might ask well the problem is what you find when you do a search. Witch is a ton of bogus sites for anything you might do a search for. The biggest problem is why you find so many sites and its not necessarily a bad thing its affiliate marketing. I'm here to tell you watch out, it is such a horrible feeling when you realize you have been scamed online believe me I know. From the thought of your information being stolen to the fact that you probably just lost some money.

Affiliate marketing is not a bad thing it can be a great thing however it has been blown way out of proportion and the quality of a lot of the products is less then fair. What you have to watch out for are products that make crazy promises, like get rich quick or make money fast. There are all kinds of genuine affiliate applications, take amazon for example they are a highly trusted company who also use affiliates but in a better way. Watch out for junk looking sites with no real feed back and just a simple biased review.

Websites that claim to be a review site but have biased reviews of all kinds of digital products are most likely an affiliate site. What you as a consumer need to look out for are these types of sites. There are many types of review sites out there for everyday consumables like electronics, kitchen supplies, an so on. Most of these sites are genuine because they are not directly promoting the products they are just reviewing them to get the good word out there. Back to affiliate review sites. Affiliate review sites are reviews written by somebody trying to sell the product on the site plain and simple. So how can you still find quality digital products and the reviews on them?

Well I may have found a solution, I recently learned of some of the sketchy happenings online and I thought how might I bring to light what is happening and it dawned on me make a website to spread the word. So I had another great idea there must be lots of people out there who have bought this stuff that ended up happy and not so happy. These are the people that need to be reached and build a stockpile of customer reviews on digital products by the most reliable source you. My websites main goal is customer reviews of digital products to help find the quality digital products and weed out the bad products while discussing all of this as a community.

I am a firm advocate for quality digital products and I believe the world needs to know about some of the stuff that is only found online. However there is also a lot that should never see the light of day but that is the money making world we live in. It cannot be helped that people want to make a lot of money and doing it online is a great idea but every part of me screams "please do not do it at the expense of everyone else" unless what you have created is a genuine product for the masses to love and consume.

I hope this article will give you a little heads up knowledge on what is out there and not completely scare you into a world where the internet is bad. I hope it brings to light a few issues I have noticed and open up a community that talks about digital products and brings the best products to the mainstream because like I said "I am a firm believer in quality digital products" and I want some to become more mainstream because they need to. If you want to help build this new community give some input.

Thanks for reading

Dan Kaufenberg
