Not Credible Review Sites
The Garage Journal removed all our posts because we exposed the fact that the posts on their site were not written by customers. We added that the links in the posts to supposed energy experts were actually disguised pitchmen of fiberglass, cellulose and rigid board. A week later our posts were removed from the site.
When we attempted to login we received the following notification:
What remains on sites like these are half-truths, ridiculous fabrications and arguments that appear accurate because opposing comments are removed.
What better way is there to deceive the public than to create a forum of supposed real customers discussing a product. Sprinkle in a few leading questions, answer them yourself, leave just a couple positive reviews, drop in a few links and poof you've got a brew of deception.
Wolve in Sheep's Clothing - Disguised pitchmen
The Green Building Advisor blog site is a biased. Its agenda is to make sure the products advertised on its blog site sell. The site scares unsuspecting readers away from suppliers and manufacturers that compete against advertiser on its website.
There is nothing wrong with an agenda - The issue with the blog site is:
- Not making a distinction between any radiant barriers or suppliers.
- Describing virtually and entire industry of suppliers and manufacturers by name as "criminals", "violating federal law" and "bad apples".
- Using half-truths and omissions in deceptive articles that damage the reputations of competitors to its advertisers.
The blog site deceives with false comparisons, omissions and half-truths.
Parasite Review Sites
Parasite review sites are sites that allow non-customers and competitors to post. Because people believe negative posts more than positive posts, these review sites crave negative posts. Negative reviews attract additional negative posts. The more posts, the higher the ranking of the site. The higher the ranking the more viewers. The more viewers, the more the site can charge for advertising. These site even solicit more negatives reviews from those that have previously posted.
If a vendor requests removal of a fraudulent post by a non-customer, the site will use a third party company to contact the vendor to pitch their charge to have the review removed. It's called "pay to play." Don't visit parasite review sites. You will only increase their SEO ranking. Certainly don't post reviews on them. If the site starts with a name like "Pissed" or "Complaint" it's has no interest in an honest reviews. It wants only complaints - It needs them to exist. Happy customers don't go to sites named "Pissed..." or "Complaint..." The site will count any review as a complaint regardless if it's content.
Web Review Gone Wild - Example A
In response to our writing, "The link was already provided" Here's the threat we received:
Non-customer: Dec. 7, 2015 8:45 AM
"Block me all you want. I'm done with you. Now I'm focusing on building a website (did you happen to notice that I build websites for a living?). All you had to do was answer a simple question. But instead you had to be a world class ass about it all. So now I'm annoyed enough to motivate myself to building xxxxx. I already registered the domain name...won't take me long at all to build the website."
This is not a customer. He has no business relationship with us. He has never spent a penny with us - Yet he's committed to building a website of negative posts!
Fortunately, we can handle these insidious assaults because our customer base is composed primarily of contactors that are repeat customers.
Web Review Gone Wild - Example B
A little more than 10 years ago on a late Friday evening, a lady screamed, "Your FedEx driver left my insulation rolls in front of my garage door. I had to get out of my car to move them in order to drive into the garage. How are you going to compensate me for that?" We did not understand the issue. We told her FedEx drivers always leave the insulation where they think is best. We did not offer her compensation.
She replied, "You're not going to dismiss me" and she hung up. Days later we found dozens negative web reviews. She titled most of them "STEAR CLEAR OF INSULATION FOR LESS". She incorporated excellent SEO so her reviews showed up everywhere. She continued to post for almost a year - all because she had to move her rolls from in front of her garage door and she felt dismissed. Of course she embellished the story to gain more sympathy and do more damage.
She single handedly posted more reviews than all our other customer combined! This is called disproportionate power being yielded by one - That's an Insulation4Less review Gone Wild.
Let's change the proportion of the more than 50% of reviews being made by non customers - Those are opinion pieces. Customers can state facts. Take some of the power away from those that create web reviews gone wild. If you're a customer, how about posting a review about Prodex Total Insulation4Less at Site Jabber.
