Hi folks, I did a review on how easy it is to start a 125 pixel exchange network. Of course, it was an “honest” opinion as every review on Zedomax.com is.
But this morning, I woke up to find out this e-mail from the owner of Nuacco.net from S. Masterov firstname.lastname@example.org:
(Normally I don’t disclose the parties but in this case, I felt more righteous to disclose it.)
here are some stats from your nuacco.net account:
You have send 348 clicks to network
You have received 586 from the network
And here quote from Your site “(Compare us to ratios like 2:1 (Spottt.com), 10:1 (Nuacco.Net)”
so I want to say Fuck You and Your account has been banned @ nuacco.net
Now I could be very nasty and tell him lots of stuff, but the point of this post is not to respond to a blog review with anger, no matter how negative it is for your service or product.
The above real life example shows Nuacco as very unprofessional and does not explain anything. A better way would to explain in detail how they can improve their service and how I could make changes to get a better ratio.
I myself have been guilty of doing such things, but with time and experience, anger will never help you. You can read about how to remove anger over at my friend’s Deimos blog, a great story by the way.
Well, in internet marketing, any review is a good review and you get more online exposure. There’s no positive or negative. If you get a link back from an established blogger, you should thank him regardless of the review itself as that all funnels into more PageRank for you and people find out about your service/product.
Even this post itself is actually helping Nuacco get more online presence.
I’ve actually stopped using Nuacco on Zedomax.com long time ago simply because they offer 2:1 impressions ratio for the first month or so and it goes all the way down to 10:1 impressions.
I had couple Nuacco widgets on my other smaller blogs but I guess I will have to remove them all now.
The number of clicks I got from Nuacco probably consists mostly from when I used it on Zedomax.com in the first month when they give you free 10K impressions plus the 2:1 impressions. So in all, the guy didn’t do a full detailed analysis of my recent stats.
Well, I don’t really give a &*&* about Nuacco’s service or Spottt or any other 125 banner exchange service as it gives me maybe 20 clicks at most to Zedomax.com. Compare that to 10,000 views Zedomax.com from natural traffic. I usually end up the too nice guy who helps someone else in exchange for clicks that don’t bring in any revenue.
I am currently using 125exchange.com, only because the owner was very positive and even bought a Beer Stock from me over at SiteHoppin.com. Now 125exchange.com also doesn’t really help my traffic, but I use it because I like the guy behind it.
Now, I have been very positive about Nuacco service until this morning when I got the e-mail. I hope you guys are happy now that I did another review for you. And next time, check my site stats before telling me you will ban me. I will probably ban you more than you will ban me.
In business and life, you need a positive outlook on everything. Without that, you will miserably fail even if you have a million dollar VC funding.
Okay, thanks for reading today’s rants, now to move on with life and technology…
