Weird web hosting reviews

    Hi guys,

    I was just browsing around and found interesting things. Maybe you will be able to answer me this.
    Most of web hosting companies have weird review blog which begins with [hosting company_name] ends with [review.org].
    I thought to myself maybe it is some king of agency which works to review web hosting companies and just adds affiliate links to their names...but unfortunately it is not as I noticed that they have all the same templates, but hosted in the different locations (probably webhosting companies have hosted in their servers).
    All links are non-affiliate (or it seems that it is not).
    Secondly they have the same program which gives full uptime report for their servers (program execution file hostingcompanyname.php).
    What you guys think what is it? Maybe we should do some kind of independent webhosting review to get weight on our websites? My vote would be YES :)
    Therefore maybe we should investigate and come to the conclusion is it a fake review automatically posted every few days or it is one of methods to generate content also automatically?
    Well in my opinion it wouldn‘t be a bad idea it is actually a great idea to reach bigger audience :)
    Thank you and will be waiting for your reviews and votes!

    If you think that we should do the same stuff or similar to that maybe you can contact me (if you are interested) on <<Snipped>> and we would have a discussion regarding shared review sites. I have few ideas about it maybe and you would be interested…

    Removed your contact as that would lead to lot of spam in your inbox.

    Also about such review FTC has come up with a solution where you should disclose it or else you can be fined.

    If you want to have a successful online presence you need to have reliable web hosting. Your web site has to be always online and accessible. Dedicated server represents a hosting where company lease the whole web server from web hosting company.
