    Help SA's Reputation on Web of Trust

    Hi Folks,

    I was made aware that one member was worried about joining SA because of a
    rating on a web site called Web of Trust. I had never heard of them before but
    sure enough one commenter said that we were listed on Phishtank and "tanked"
    our reputation on this site.

    I don't think we were ever listed on Phishtank and we certainly are not listed now.
    SA has never offered spyware, adware, malware or any type of malicious download.

    SA does not have pop-ups and our newsletter is totally can spam act compliant
    with Aweber.

    If you have some time I would appreciate if you could go and rate our site so that
    we can boost our reputation on this site to reflect a better actuality.

    Here is the link: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/sweepsadvantage.com

    ( comments are good but please make sure to click the 4 reputation ratings into
    the Green )

    Thank You!

    -Ken & Diane

    I see the lie I referenced is gone - good!!! I let them know it was a lie:

    I can't understand why just one negative review {that is an easily verifiable LIE btw} vs 14 positive reviews would garner: "Controversial rating: the ratings for this site are conflicting" ???

    I'm referring to:
    http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/ww...sadvantage.com

    I was told the site was being avoided because of the Controversial rating, which leads me to believe this is a popularity contest, where people who dislike you/have an ax to grind can attempt to ruin your reputation!!!

    I'll stick to SiteAdvisor

    I don't want to get anything started between this site and another site, so feel free to delete this comment if you feel it should be.

    I've noticed on another site, that they are now talking about the upgrades/PlusMembership here at SA. I think there are going to be a lot of people coming here to check it out, and as usual, you will have those that don't like it for the lamest of reasons.

    I think there are going to be a lot of negative comments thrown around, just to be spiteful.

    I never heard of Web of Trust, until yesterday, when I saw it mentioned over there. (Coincidence??)

    Never heard of it before either. I personally don't waste my time with those kind of sites. Opinions are like arseholes ... everyone's got one ...But that doesn't mean I want to stick my nose in it! :laughing:

    Having had my reputation stained by people mindlessly believing lies about me, I completely understand the desire to correct the misperceptions - however, my livelihood was never threatened by those people mindlessly believing the lies!!! :nono: :nono: :nono:

    I was just told about Web of Trust today, so I d/ld'ed the prog, saw the lie, then I commented on it - see above if you still aren't clear on why :laughing:

    Re: Help SA's Reputation on Web of Trust

    Many of these sites don't really identify correctly what site should be trusted or not. I contacted WOT and had them remove the one comment about phishing. ( This phishing comment was posted last feb 2009 and never validated by WOT ) Even with that comment gone and mostly good comments left I see that our rating went from poor to unsatifcatory?? :scratch:

    Even siteadvisor isn't very accurate. I learned today that it takes 5 weeks for them to update their ratings. I know at one time they even considered Roboform to be spyware.. Its all kinda crazy but I just don't want any unrealistic data out there about SA when we have reliably stayed on the right side of the tracks since 1997.

    Thanks to everyone who is rating us or has.

    :wave:

    Ken (and others)

    I totally agree with your concern. Yet, all of us sweeps fanatics ... and those yet to come to their senses ... know the truth!!! (THANK GOD!)

    Well, Wolfie-visor gives this site 4 paws up! :headbang: :laughing:

    I placed my ratings and comments. I just don't understand people who post lies about someone/thing just to make themself or their site look better! It's like internet dating. Until you share meet in person, you can be anyone you want to be. :laughing:
