What you're looking at was a scrap I got into with a somewhat famous internet "gurus". The fight was about a product that I ordered and never received so I blogged about it. This snowballed into a big thing. It's all cleared up now. But I see this story popping up on the web by lawyers looking to make a name for themselves. This isn't even a "story" anymore. In fact the judge in Texas threw it out of his docket.... years ago. Its done. Finito.
There is a bigger story there though. Never mind the web traffic product that I never received I need to nail down the truth about web traffic period. See, a lot of you have no clue to where that actually comes from. That is still going on today and in many of the businesses that I talk to. There is a major misconception of that going on in the whole disgusting world of the MLM marketers too. Its obscene. The truth is that web traffic can come to you in two ways. You can either buy it --- cheap, in some cases -- or you can create your own through writing blogs just like this one. Along with the writing comes press releases and a whole lot more.
On occasion I will look for a gurus or someone who has a new spin on web. I tend to stay on top of where web traffic is going and what it is doing on the web and how Google looks at it. This stuff is important if you want to get in front of your clients and or newsreaders. But the last two guys I was going to hire to teach me the latest trends about web traffic actually rejected me because I already knew too much. This is interesting.... It appears that a lot of these traffic guys go out and actually buy cheap traffic. Its a no brainer and thats how they get their traffic counts up so high. When I informed some of these guys that I actually write journalist pieces, blogs and press releases they were aghast with horror. They then told me that this was the most expensive web traffic available -- anywhere !!!
Now I just sort of shook my head cause I couldn't believe what I was hearing. If you want to build a big fence around your own people and the create your own support system you have to build it. You also have to believe in what you are saying. If you want something solid you will need more than a $100 dollar course to get you on the playing field.
For the record I do have a license program for my SEO work and I sell it to advertising people. It's not smoke and mirrors but has actual material that can get you results on Google, Yahoo and Bing. More on that stuff later....
