Today I got the following comment:
Here is my response
Nice try but no cigar
I disclose the fact that I put adds on my blog, as well as that I will be making money to put back in to it. I do not have the resources to compete with hosting industry. Because frankly this site needs a bigger server, and I am not rich man. But your more then welcome to play devils advocate for the hosting industry. You might also want to bring a violin for the banking industry I hear they need someone to stick up for them to.
Also you do realize I get to approve comments before they even get posted?
First of all I have not endorsed anyone, unless you called my post on GoDaddy an endorsement, I recommended them for starting up a site, but not for a serious website. At this point I have gotten zero clicks on the GoDaddy banners. I freely admit I am not a good sale agent, and I proable could have done a better job of getting people to click if I left out my history of server outages and slow response servers. But that would not be honest, and I am sure someone would have called me out on a post that had nothing but positive reviews. I also have declared several times over the many emails that I have gotten that there is NOT a host I am willing to put my name behind at this time. That does not mean I am putting my name up for sale either. I also have three more hosts that I am using to review and over 25 that I have used. Honestly if I found a better host then any of the ones I am currently using or have used I would probable move everything I have to one host. But at this time each host that I have been with have some serious flaws. But the ones that I have reviewed out of webhostingstuff.com’s top 25 list, have paid for fake positioning. At this point I have not really gone after the affiliates, though the first one I will go after is hostaz.com, owned by Michael Low who also owns webhostingstuff.com.
Yes I have advertising up. I have also been screening my google ads to make sure certain sites don’t show up. I also look into the companies that show up. I put the advertising up so I can afford better a better server for this site. I am not about to ask for donations, because frankly along with being a bad sales agent I am also a bad accountant. Since November 2007, this site has been paid for out of my pocket. The only help that I have received was word of mouth. I greatly appreciate that.
Billybrask, your welcome to comment on my blog. But I challenge you to actually read my posts. I am going to assume the first thing you did is come to my site and saw ads and decided to judge me. The last site I dealt with had faked their awards. http://hosting-reviews-exposed.com/hosts-that-use-exposed-reviews/indichost-will-indichosts-net-be-an-awarding-hosting-solution-for-you.html
