Who Reviews the Web Hosting Reviewers?

By October 30, 2012

Follow me on:

During the beginning of this month, I had created a post on the latest web hosting scams and how they've been growing with every passing month, and I had promised that I'd throw some more light on some of the spurious web hosting review sites.

Finally, I took out some time to write that article on authenticity of such web hosting review sites.

And, I must confess that whatever I discovered was pretty shocking. Basically, most of such hosting review sites are affiliates who passively promote a set of hosting packages, without scrutinizing the quality of their service.

But, I don't mean to say that all the web hosting reviewers are affiliates and provide biased reviews, yet the sad part is that majority of them aren't really genuine. So, I'd strongly advise everyone to do their due diligence before choosing a web host rather than blindly going by recommendations given on the web.
