I’m getting emails daily about this recently so I figured I’d do a post about it.
Also, there’s gonna be some major debunking going off in this post too.
Trust me, there’s a lot of scammers out there who just want to make a quick buck of you.
But don’t worry – I’m gonna be pointing out all their BS so know what to look out for.
Also, if you don’t believe me, stick around to the end…
I’ll be backing everything up with rock-solid proof at the end of this post.
So with that said, lets get straight to it…
Basically, people are emailing me about my course, the Evergreen Wealth Formula
They’re interested in the course – and as a result – they’re looking up reviews for it.
Nothing wrong with that, of course…
However, they’re coming across these reviews where they’re recommending another product.
This “recommended” product is ALWAYS the same on all these sites too.
In fact, you may of heard of it, it’s called Wealthy Affiliate.
Wanna know how to create review sites with fake reviews & deceive people into buying Wealthy Affiliate? If so, Wealthy Affiliate is where it’s at, my friend…
And this just isn’t happening to my Evergreen Wealth Formula either…
Oh no, they’re also recommending it over all the products they review on their sites, as well.
Now let me tell you something…
After going through every single one of these reviews, It’s become obvious to me…
That is, they’ve NEVER had access to the Evergreen Wealth formula, at all.
And I’m certain they haven’t had access to the other products on their sites too.
How do I know? Well, read on and I’ll explain…
But the first thing I wanna cover is the product they recommend: Wealthy Affiliate.
The most revealing thing about Wealthy Affiliate is what it teaches you…
It basically shows you how to build review sites and rank ’em in Google.
Not only that, but to make Wealthy Affiliate their no:1 recommended product too.
So yeah, as you can see…
These reviewers are basically following the Wealthy Affiliate formula to a Tee.
And as a result, you’re not looking at reviews, but promotions for the Wealthy Affiliate.
I mean, it’s kinda obvious when you look at their sites anyway – same layout etc.
Other tell tale signs are:
How they score their products (labeled “legit” or “scam” or out of a hundred)
Comparison charts (Rigged to favour Wealthy Affiliate, of course)
They position themselves as “scam busters” calling out scams (I know, the irony…)
Fake comment section (I’ll be getting to this in a minute)
Recommending Wealthy Affiliate at the end of the review (obviously)
If you see any of the above, then congrats, you’ve landed on a Wealthy Affiliate site.
Now that’s all fine and dandy, but how do I know their reviews are fake?
WebMarketSupport[DOT]com reckons I’ve bought all the video testimonials from Fiverr but I can verify every single one of them as actual Evergreen Wealth Formula customers as I have them all in my Paypal account. He also says the EWF is just a landing page and how to drive traffic which – once again – shows these guys have no clue what they’re on about.
Well, with regards to the Evergreen Wealth Formula reviews, it’s REALLY obvious
First up, they’ve ALL applied to become an affiliate for the Evergreen Wealth Formula.
However, I’ve refused every single one of them.
Why? Because the affiliate program is only open to fully paid up members.
Don’t get me wrong…
I ask them to send me the email that’s associated with their EWF account.
But guess what… They NEVER get back to me about it.
This is for the simple reason they don’t have access so they can’t be approved.
Instead, something else funny happens…
The following day, Google Alerts notifies me there’s a new EWF review in Google.
And guess what? Yup, that’s right…
The guy I denied as an affiliate has gone and wrote a review for the EWF.
And surprise, surprise… He’s recommending Wealthy Affiliate over my course.
(Even though he’s NEVER had access to the Evergreen Wealth Formula, in the first place)
I left a comment on YourIncomeAdvisor[DOT]com Evergreen Wealth Formula review about all the incorrect information in his review & comparison but strangely enough my comment never got approved… I wonder why? Also, there is an affiliate program – but he won’t know this ’cause it’s only open to EWF members…
Seriously, you would be shocked the amount of times this happens
In fact, here’s the process what happens:
They apply to become an Evergreen Wealth Formula affiliate.
I ask them to send the email that’s associated with their EWF account.
They never reply back.
Then Google Alerts notifies of a new EWF review the following day.
And trust me, I KNOW it’s them…
The info they give me to become an affiliate matches their site info.
So yeah, it’s definitely them – without a shadow of doubt.
Okay, so you’re probably thinking how come their reviews are so detailed, right?
I mean, the amount of detail these guys go in their reviews are absolutely phenomenal.
They cover all the chapters and modules… Everything, basically.
Yet, they’ve never had access to the EWF course in their life?
Well, let me tell you…
What they’re doing is getting all the info from the EWF sales video.
You see, there’s a section in the video where I give a overview of the entire course.
However, there’s one teeny weeny problem…
I haven’t updated that part of the sales video since 2013.
I have, however, updated the course considerably since then.
I’ve added new modules, renamed the old ones, updated the content – the whole lot, really.
(The Evergreen Wealth Formula is constantly updated – hence “evergreen”)
So when I’m reading these reviews, it’s so obvious to me they’re getting their info from there.
All the info they give corresponds with what I say and show in that video.
(Which is drastically out of date, remember)
I’ll give ’em one thing though…
They’ve really data-mined the crap out of that video though.
They must of downloaded the video and zoomed in the get the module names etc.
This goes to show – once again – they haven’t got access to the Evergreen Wealth Formula, whatsoever
They’re just trying to trick you into thinking they know what they’re on about.
Then do the ol’ Switcharoo & send you to the Wealthy Affiliate program instead.
…Things you do for those monthly recurring commissions, eh.
Ah, but the fakery doesn’t end there either, my friend, it gets worse – a lot worse…
You see, the comment section isn’t up to snuff either.
Let me give you an example…
This is a Evergreen Wealth Formula review from affiliate-sale[DOT]com:
Eh? But the Evergreen Wealth Formula has NEVER taught SEO or Backlinking, for that matter. Also, you’d think Peter G (Evergreen Wealth Formula review er) would point that out too… Strange, indeed.
As you can see, Nicole isn’t a happy-chappy with the Evergreen Wealth Formula…
Fair doos, but this is where it gets interesting…
She says the backlinking methods taught in the course are out of date.
That, and it could do more damage than good to your site.
Scary stuff, right… Definitely don’t want that happening to your site.
But here’s the thing…
I don’t teach SEO in the course and I definitely don’t teach backlinking either.
Now if ol’ Nicole had access to the Evergreen Wealth Formula, she would KNOW this.
And while we’re at it… Peter G (site owner & reviewer) doesn’t correct her either.
I mean, he should know – he went through the EWF with a fine-tooth comb, after all.
But oh no, he’s too busy pushin’ his “Wealthy Affiliate” affiliate link to care.
And it’s not just this site either…
This is happening on all the other Wealthy Affiliate review sites too…
So yeah, the comments appear to be fake accounts with a bias towards Wealthy Affiliate.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s powerful stuff from a marketing point of view…
It adds A LOT more creditability to your reviews because everyone says it.
But at the same time, it’s scummy, unethical and your lying to your visitors, as well.
Heck, I’ve even tried to leave a comment myself, pointing out these mistakes & errors.
And this isn’t in a nasty, vindictive way…
Oh no, in fact, my comments are written in a very friendly, approachable tone.
I simply say some of the information in the comments/review is incorrect, that’s all.
But strangely enough, my comments NEVER seem to get approved on these reviews.
I guess it goes against their narrative, if you know what I mean.
Anyway, I think you get the idea…
If you see a site and it recommend Wealthy Affiliate every single time…
Then my advice to you is to run for the hills and don’t look back – ever
Every Wealthy Affiliate site I’ve seen so far haven’t seen the products they review.
In fact, their sites are not there to help or educate you…
They’re just designed with the sole purpose to make the site owner money.
…And that’s obviously by getting you to sign up the Wealthy Affiliate program.
Now don’t get me wrong…
There’s nothing wrong designing a site to make you money – we all do it.
However, you MUST deliver genuine value to your visitors in the process.
I mean, checkout this very blog you’re on right now…
Yes, it makes me money, but I deliver tons & tons of value in the process.
In fact, there’s more “how to” guides on this blog than anything else.
And this is something I simply don’t see on these Wealthy Affiliate sites, at all.
Just fake reviews and the token affiliate link to Wealthy Affiliate, of course.
One final note…
If you’re sat there thinking I’m making this up, then here’s the rock-solid proof I promised earlier…
It’s basically a thread over at the Warrior Forum (world’s biggest internet marketing forum).
It’s a Wealthy Affiliate review thread and I recommend you read it.
You’ll see other marketers are saying the EXACT SAME thing as me.
And these guys are experienced marketers too – so they’re aware of these tactics.
In fact, here’s what “Gluckspilz” says about Wealthy Affiliate:
Basically everything I’ve said about Wealthy Affiliate summarised in this comment
Thinking it’s one-off?
If so, here’s a post from Chyan007 from the exact same thread:
Further proof not to pay attention to that pesky Evergreen Wealth Formula review you found on that Wealthy Affiliate review site…
And trust me, there’s a lot more comments saying the same thing about Wealthy Affiliate too.
