I guess like most people who run a site they have to deal with a gargantuan amount of spam. While browsing through my list for this blog it was interesting to see that one spam in particular was a review of sort for Yahoo! Web hosting it seems. It basically had generic praises as if it was someone that used the service and was praising it.
I am usually one of those people who heavily rely on user reviews too when it comes to making a purchasing decision on various products and services. Examples like these sure make you wonder how many of them are just robot generated reviews. I must admit though that these types of things probably generate companies a lot of business.
Seeing one product with like five highly praised user reviews versus one that has none is usually enough to sway most people. Whether or not itâ€™s the actual company doing it is a mystery of course too.
