Seems the Niche Devil crowd doesn’t take critique kindly. This morning I found two comments in my moderation queue from a delightful character that calls him or herself “HospitelareNot” This person threatens me that my adsense account might get suspended next week and I might get reported to Google for being part of a “link exchange network”, something what his or her “link analysis” of my site pretends to have proven. Only thing is that I am not part of a “link exchange network”, I know that for sure 😉
If you want to read the two comments, just hop over for a moment to the two posts called Niche Devil a scam? and Is the Niche Devil Affiliate Program working? to have a look at them. I am keeping records of this guys or gals IP and, probably faked, email address and if something happens to my site or to my adsense account I know where to start.
Interesting is, that this person is defending Niche Devil with such methods. Now I ask myself, why? Most probably a misguided form of loyalty towards Vic, the creator of Niche Devil. I don’t believe that Vic from bloggerunleashed, would leave anonymous comments. Or do you? So why are people not able to accept that somebody has a different opinion of their Gurus and the products they sell?
One more thing to consider if you want to buy Niche Devil. If you are not already an ebay affiliate you need a good, content rich site to get approved into the program. Ebay is increasing its standards for sites that get allowed into the program continuously. From their web site:
“Before applying to the eBay Partner Network, please ensure that you meet the following requirements:
1. You own and operate the website for which you are applying to promote eBay.
2. The website is functioning, relevant for promoting eBay, and has unique or value-added content or functionality that will drive incremental purchases on eBay.
3. You are in compliance with the eBay Partner Network Agreement and Code of Conduct.
4. You have a working phone number and a valid PayPal account or bank account, which can receive direct deposits–you will need this payment information during the application process.”
“You are required to tell us all of the live domains that you will use to drive traffic to our Advertisers.” The last one would then make all your Niche Devil web sites trackable back to one account.
So before you buy into Niche Devil, make sure the sites you are about to build comply with the TOS of the affiliate program you want to use.
