    1) It's rude to bump your own thread...
    2) Stop worrying about the future... Concentrate on today and the future will take care of itself!

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

    Do you mean regarding SEO and ranking them in search engines?

    Although Google has favoured big authority sites for some years, they'll always be room for product review affiliate sites because the big authority sites can only rank for so many keywords.

    The good ones will do well, the others will do poorly. What other future is there for them?

        It's easy. Instead of writing reviews about how poor or bad the product is, you approach it as a "reporter" or "trainer", examining the features in layman's terms.

        I make good money doing exactly this - and my readers find my information useful.

    Hello forumface,

    It's evident that an actual and complete video review is the imminent future of successful review websites.

    The next level would be an interactive experience equal to the level of a simulation of the product.
    That would be an over the top review website.

    Cheers

    Oh...

    So what you really meant to ask was :

    (fixed that for you)

    As explained in the other thread you referenced, fake reviews are against FTC guidelines.

    That does NOT mean that review sites are dead. It just means that low-quality, fake review sites are at risk.

    Now all you have to decide is whether you have the skill and the work ethic to create a quality review site. Quality is always a good idea. There is no magic bullet. Leave that out of your ingredient list, and your recipe for success will fail.

    The public is becoming more aware of disclosure requirements. This is important, and slow.

    Many reviewers do not yet disclose where and under what circumstances they received the product from...even though they should. For the unaware, this many not seem like a big deal, but what if the reviewer is:

    > given the product for $0 or a discount in return for a positive review?

    > required to let the product provider view and edit the review before posting?

    > limiting the field of products to the range they themselves are an affiliate for?


    I've most recently seen this in the drawing tablet field. Reviewers dismiss competing products after giving a cursory survey, and then recommend the two or three from the one manufacturer they're affiliated with.

    If they don't tell you about this connection, is it a fair review? Is it legal?

    Saying, "Here are the range of manufacturers, but you should really concentrate only on these from this single product maker, because they're the best" is not a fair statement. Yet it's being done all the time. And the public is for the most part unaware, believing what they see on the internet to be true.

    Here is a recent video on the topic from one of the tech people I follow on Youtube



    The catalyst as described was a demand from a marketing firm working on behalf of a nifty doorbell manufacturer to get a positive review in return for the product. That is described here:



    Consider this situation: a third party marketing firm that connects social media influencers with product manufacturers for the purpose of getting reviews in front of a target market is allegedly behaving in a way the manufacturer, who hired them, is saying they do not approve of.

    Things get snarled up pretty quickly.

    I am pretty sure most people don't even know organizations like Famebit exist.

    Anyone wanting to learn about the current state of affairs of influencer marketing will get the full picture from watching these two videos.

    Product review affiliate websites do work really well.

    They are evergreen and do have a long lasting impact.

    As long as people want to read about the products they like or which they intend to buy there will be the future for affiliate review sites. Of course there are worthless reviews and worthless websites just as you have worthless things in every business and every walks of life but there will always be space for useful info and those who offer info on products that is useful for visitors will always make money! That's the whole truth and nothing but the truth...
