You are going to find a lot more websites like this and I would suggest ignoring them

After discussing this earlier with Brenda & Frank, then I realized what it was!

Before that, I had no clue and it was making me upset!😫

Thank you for responding!

Have a great day!

Cheers,
🎄 Maria

Glad to read that everyone has advised you to ignore this. I can imagine it was horrible discovering it though.
Good luck going forwards!
Soraya

Hello Soraya! It was upsetting! I mentioned it to WA friend in private and was advised to post it as he/she is not certain what this was!
That’s why I love our WA community, it is for reasons such as this!

Have a great day!

Cheers,
🎄Maria

Bang on the money Maria!

Being able to get answers from "the trenches", so to speak, is where real value lies in WA (notwithstanding the solid training).

Absolutely Rohan!!!!
Being able to get responses is priceless!!!!
You will never feel alone in WA!!!!

Have a great day!

Cheers,
🎄Maria

I agree with you, Maria!

Having the community around you is fantastic!

Roy

Oh hey Roy! How you’ve been?

Yeah , this was a crazy experience to be unnecessarily get upset about! But I am learning!!!

Grateful for the WA community!

🎄Maria

Hello Maria,

I have been fine, thank you for asking. I trust all is well with you all.

Sadly, there are some scams and different things out there that can cause alarm! I'm just glad that all is well and you have seen the light! That's when it's good to have good people around you, as you rightly mention!

I hope you have a great weekend.

All the best,

Roy

Hello Roy!

Few days ago,I was wondering whether I mistakenly deleted a chat from you,as I didn’t hear from lately!

Then of course, LIFE happens, and then this “Scam Advisor” stuff ( which was a relief that it was a NOTHING issue).

Right now , in between work, busy with Christmas preparations! We have our Christmas Cantata tonight and tomorrow night.

Stay safe Roy, as Covid is on the rise again. Hope it is under control in your country. There’s a talk of bringing the mask mandate again over here!

Cheers,
🎄Maria

Good morning Maria,

I hope you're doing well and keeping warm.

You know, with all the messages and comments we reply to on Wealthy Affiliate, sometimes it's easy to miss a message. I believe the other day, I opened a comment from a fellow member, I probably got distracted and now I can't remember which thread it was in.

It's always good to respond to member's messages and comments etc., but I think we all understand that sometimes it's easy to miss a few! Not deliberately, but it happens!

I hope you have a great time at Christmas, I think it's a lovely time of year, especially when we know the true meaning.

I saw something today that Covid is on the rise again, I guess it's that time of year! I also see governments trying to take advantage of the situation and lots of scaremongering on the mainstream media! I guess being involved in healthcare, you are the first to see an increase in cases.

I'm glad that I know who I am in Christ, he is with the believer every step of the way!

Have a great day.

Roy

Sorry, but thankfully I have not had that issue arise.

-Mike

Good Mike!!!
Because it is upsetting when you see it!

But I am glad to know it’s a scam! Still upsetting, but not that much anymore!!!
Have a great day!

Cheers,
🎄 Maria

Sorry that you are being hit with this nonsense.

Hi, Maria

I wouldn’t stress about this. Google won’t use their rating as a ranking factor.

Your website traffic is coming to your articles from SERP results of the keywords you’re ranking for.


Nobody is finding your articles on page one of Google and going to Scamadvisor to check you out before they click on the URL to your post!

The audience for my guitar site are mostly Rockers and “Metal Heads.” They couldn’t care less about Scamadvisor! 😎

Frank 🎸

Hahaha! My audience is beginning parents, and you know this millennials refer their questions and answers mostly from the internet.
So if they saw this, they will not bother to even look at my website. 😫

There are dozens of sites like Scamadvisor out there, Maria.

I’m sure my site is on one of them, somewhere. 😎

Is that right Frank?
Ok Big Brother, I should listen to you and try not to be upset about this. ( Although truthfully, this bothered me a lot)🥲

Hi, Maria

Now that you know about Scamadvisor, will you check each website rating on it before you click on a SERP result?

“Don’t Worry, Be Happy!” 😎

Frank 🎸

I didn’t even know that they exist! That’s why I was upset.

Nobody else does either, Maria. 😎

Ok Frank, I will be cool 😎!
Just like you are cool 😎 🎸🎸

I’m “Too Cool For School,” Maria! (Well, maybe not) 😎 🎸

😁😀😂😅🤣🎸🎸🎸🎸

Hahaha 😁 🎸

Maria, I went looking into Quora about this. Many report that this business hurts many legit businesses. Go there type in is scamadvisor legit? I found numerous of complaints about that site. Read what people say. My old site was one of them it's their algorithm that does it, they do it to all new sites even older sites. This site is not to be trusted. I know it's your site. It's new somebody needs to destroy that site, their reporting it's questionable and can hurt your business. Mine was there too but once you gain 100 percent Google trust in site health you should be ok. I wouldn't wanna mess with this put you in the wrong hands. I learned some had to pay a reputable company to get their website removed from scamadivsor and it can be costly. Not a good option either.

Hi, Brenda

Your WA Site Health automatically goes up 10% a month. 😎

Frank 🎸

That's great, Frank!

So, what did you do with your situation Brenda?

I ignored it until my site gained Google trust, later I abandoned the site and decided not to continue with it deleted it. Started two new ones. It's best to continue grow your site and gain authority but that takes time to build this up. Frank has mentioned great points. FYI, do not even pay for removal because it's not worth it. You don't need to worry, just keep building your site.

Yes I know that, but it doesn't stop Google from getting articles in SERPS. So really no worries. This scam advisor is just useless, gaining Google E. A. T is the best.

Thanks, Brenda!

I just checked my guitar site o Scamadvisor and it came out ok with a score of 67out of 100 (legit).

Their evaluation criteria are ridiculous, like the site owner identity is hidden. WA does that on every site for privacy. 😎

Frank 🎸

I totally agree, Brenda.

Scamadvisor could give your site a “glowing” rating but if Google is not ranking your content on pages 1 to 3 it won’t matter, 😎

Yeah that’s why I wish the feds shut them down most of their information is just full of croc. It’s sad that some people have to pay 15k or more to remove the negativity of someone’s legit website business off of scam advisor website.

Okay, I will not let this bother me. And it takes a stronger will power to let this happen.

Thanks Brenda!

🤗

Good for you.

Oh, so your website was also mentioned Frank?

Then I won’t feel as bad!

Ok,ok,let me RE-FOCUS on things that are good!🤔🤔

Haha, and I’m not worried about it at all, even if they would have given me a score of 0 out of 100! 😎

There you go. I’m sure two of mine are there but I haven’t checked it yet. I’m in bed and ready to 😴. Good night. I will check it out in the morning.

15k???? Pay those scumbags 15k????
Hah! So this is what it is!
Ok now I get it.

Hahahaha 😂😂😅😅🤣🤣

Hahahaha! You are funny Brenda! Why would you even want your self to be upset!
It’s a SCAM!!!
So don’t bother!!!!

I think a lot of these sites like Scam Advisor are just a come-on to try and get you to "Claim your listing".

A clever lead-gen tactic.

Once they have your email address they can market to you.

Just ignore them Maria.

Thank you for responding!
I realized it later with Frank 🎸and Brenda’s earlier exchange through this post.

Earlier, I was upset!
After they said it was a scam, I am now better!!!

Have a great day!

Cheers,
🎄Maria

Scumbags ??

Now you’re talking, Maria! 😎

Absolutely correct! 😎

Yeah Frank ! Bunch of LOSERS!!

GET A JOB LOSERS!!!!!!!

😤😫😖🤬😡🥵

Hahaha 😎

🎸🎸🎸😎😎😎😎❣️

Im glad youre feeling better- today is a new day.

Indeed, Brenda!
Thank you so much for your insight!
I can’t believe I allowed myself to be upset with this. I am learning.
I appreciate you Brenda!

Have a great Friday!

🤗😍,
🎄 Maria
