My ReviewMe Nightmare – Revisited

  • Comments: 4
  • Written on: July 11th, 2007

A couple months ago I posted about my less-than-stellar experience with ReviewMe. I promised then to follow up on the status of my ReviewMe payment.

As of this moment I have not been paid for any of the reviews I completed on ReviewME and at this point I do not expect that I will.

Google’s recent revision of their webmaster guidelines and their growing push to differentiate paid links versus real links might make services like ReviewMe and TextLinkAds obsolete anyway.

    That would stink. I was hoping to get some traffic with ReviewMe at some point. Hoping to write some also later down the road.

    Yikes. I have them on my radar for when I have my blogs up to the level where I could actually demand a decent fee. I suppose I should rethink the idea.

    I just received this email from ReviewMe. Let’s just say I am not as enthused about their new prouct as they are…

    Thor, we are excited to announce our new Advertorial product at ReviewMe! Advertorials are a huge step forward in the world of paid blog reviews. Check out the benefits:

    For Advertisers:
    • You control the message. Enter up to 250 words including links back to your website and also an image of your choice.
    • You can login and get full impression and click tracking on your campaign.
    • You choose which top blogs to place your Advertorial.
    For Publishers:
    • Less work. Simply cut and paste our code into your blog.
    • All advertorials are by default marked as a “SPONSOR POST:” so the disclosure is done for you.
    • You retain full control. Accept or reject any Advertorials purchased.
    We think our RM Advertorial will revolutionize the paid blogging world by giving advertisers complete control over their messaging, along with a branding opportunity and the reporting metrics they have come to expect with traditional online media buys. Bloggers will also benefit from an additional revenue source to supplement ReviewMe’s suite of offerings. You can view a live Advertorial here.
