I often wonder am I the only legitimate reviewer of replica handbag sites out there? I mean every time I think I stumbled upon something good I figure out they are just a fraud. I would like to teach you all a few tricks for figuring out if a review site is legit or if it is just a marketing ploy.
The first lesson is about links. I recommend always taking a look at what sites the site you are looking at recommends. So let’s take a look at replicahandbagsreview.com for example. At first glance this site looks great. Very nice design, but I notice 2 things right away, first no comments from readers and secondly no traffic. Now I have tools on my browser that tell me the traffic for sites I am viewing so you may not know that. What you can do for yourself is follow the links. Okay take a minute and browse through the recommended blogs and recommended shopping sites. Then when you get to the shopping sites or blogs scroll down to the bottom and click on words like “replica watches” , “rolex watches”, “replica handbags” etc… these are called keywords. These are search terms that are commonly entered in google when searching for replica items. You’ll find that in many cases when you click on these keywords at the bottom of the page you are directed to a new site. Now keep following them. It will only take a few moments for you to find yourself back where you started. These are called link wheels. Basically, one owner bought a whole bunch of domains, put sites and blogs on them, and they all link to each other. All those links give SEO power to the site. What’s SEO power? That is the juice that gets you ranked in Google. This blog has 2 purposes, one to drive traffic to their sites and two to drive google juice to their sites. One thing this blog is not, it is not really meant to be read. It’s just a marketing ploy.
The next site I would like to look at is handbag-review.com. I have noticed this site around for a long time. They have been ranked number 1 or 2 for the keyword “replica handbag site reviews” on google for some time. It is obvious why. (This site is run by the owners of six-star-replicas.com which is one of the oldest replica sites online. (Google likes older sites because they figure they have proven themselves reliable) It is one of the only sites that did not lose its domain in the recent battle with Louis Vuitton. It’s pretty obvious that all of the top 4 replica handbags sites are from the same owner. If you just look at the layout you can see it. Also if you go through the resources section you find the same link wheel like the site above although this one is bigger (meaning it will take longer for you to get back to where you started).
Anyway, I have found some sites that I thought seemed less fraudulent. Tiffanyreplicareviews.com looks good to me and thereplicaguru.blogspot.com looks like it might be okay. I am really waiting to see their new site. They layout here is hard to follow and there is not much background information available. I tried contacting them once too and they never responded.
What about you? Where do you go for replica site reviews? What is your favourite resource?
