The web is awash in “how to make money online scams, cons and rip-offs” . Millions of people search online every month for opportunities to generate income. Unfortunately, they will come across the many “get rich schemes” promising the pie in the sky.

I am sure you have seen these offers or received spam e-mail promoting a “secret money making product”. You decided to take a closer look.  A simple search [product name Review] displayed 20 or 30 pages with write-ups or links to You Tube video reviews.

Can you tell the difference between a real, honest review and a fake review, which is in fact a “sales pitch in disguise”? I will show you what to look for in this article.


1) Pre-Launch “Make Money Online Reviews”

The deception starts even before the product is available. It is common practice to announce a launch date of this “new money generating miracle” with a series of e-mail campaigns and postings on the social networks.

At the same time, so-called reviews of the not yet available product appear in great numbers on the Internet. You would be wrong to assume that these reviews are the results of tests and try-outs.

In fact, these reviews are produced either by affiliates which will earn a commission of future sales, or often times by folks that make their living by creating review videos for any product or services.

2) Review Websites

Take the time and compare the first 20 reviews (not the videos just yet). You may find ONE real website with lots of content, categories, menu items, an About page and contact information. This is, most likely, an honest review. However, this may not be the case and I will explain that just in a minute.

All the others contain just one landing page with many links to the sales video. Reading the sales pitch, that’s what this page really is, you will notice that they are all similar, sometimes awkward to read and not high quality content.

These pages are created using “Article Spinner Software”, which uses text templates and spins the wording and structure of sentences to give the text the appearance of being original.

3) Reviews on You Tube

Most videos are short, just 2 to 5 minutes, amateurish and fun to watch. Some are longer and the narrator actually tries to explain how this product is able to fill up your bank account over night, even while you are sleeping.

Of course, they show you the obligatory stacks of dollar bills and false bank statements with outrages deposit amounts. However, the main reason is to lure you into “clicking the link below”, buy the product and earn the video producer some commission.

If you already watched the sales video, you will notice that some of these people also appear in it.

4) “Jump On The Bandwagon” Reviews

These are positive reviews by folks that enter an affiliate agreement with the owners of the product and earning commission when a sale was initiated through their website. Yes, they do have a well designed website and a lot of content. At closer look though, all their reviews are about “scam products” with links to the sales page.

Some of them use shortened links as to hide the destination URl, but a click on the link will take you where you will lose your hard earned money.

      Thanks Ade. Yea, I just needed to write this article. It makes me angry when looking at the top ranked “Reviews” created with article spinners. I wonder why Google is not catching on to that crap. Wealthy Affiliate literally preaches about quality content and Kyle/Carson are so right. However, somebody needs to let Google know.
