    What a hypocrite talking about being scientific.

    I saw a nice comment (no i didnt make the comment but i was surprised there are other ppl that exist still with such candor) on his latest shill article for onehourindexing.

    I commend this brave person for spekaing their mind instead of going along with the blind masses kissing his butt:




    Woodward attempts to defends himself by saying 'i only report the facts if it didnt perform better i woudlnt have ranked it number one'. What a dishonest and spurious thing to say. As if the 'test' couldnt have been rigged (by the owners of onehourindexing or woodward himself to recieve his paycheck) to come number one.

    Its like when pharmaceutical industries fund tests to find x, y, z drug is safe or whatever. Obviously the scientists are getting paid to find a specific result. Or tobacco companies or whatever else.

    So dont try and play dumb woodward my boy.

    Anyway it makes no difference there is always going to be legions of sheep who will follow anyone who ACTS like they have the answers whether they do or not. I suppose internet marketing is like WWE in that regard- not about what is real but just about what the sap wants to see/hear.

    I do not understand guy's hate regarding his affiliate links. He is Internet marketer after all.

    He is an internet marketer, doing what he does to make money and not to help others at the expense of his time gaining nothing in return. He provides reviews, which you can decide for yourself whether or not to go by. He has a target to meet to grow his income levels each month, for which he has to look at good products that he can commit his time to review. Its all a fair thing online.

    Why do you hate on him? Do you expect him to give out information for free or what? I have been his frequent reader, except those guestposts from some BS guestposters, i would say his info is quite damn decent.

    Matthew Woodward is one of the only guys I'm following.

    First of all we are all Internet Marketers. Affiliate links are what we do. If you truly can't understand why he is doing this, you should better start doing something else. What other option do we have? Paid content? Become a guru?

    This guy is releasing a top notch content. TBH I rarely see anything close to his dedication about his blog and the articles.


    Anyway, the guy is becoming more and more famous these days, and people like you are unavoidable. If I was Matt, I wouldn't worry a shit about people like you, and I would actually thank your efforts. All you are doing is actually helping him so more people can find out about his blog.

    Well, I like Matt and I follow him. Untill now, I have found nothing suspicious about his Reviews. Specially, the Comparison Reviews.

    It's pretty predicted that people with shitty services and get exposed to get Angry, Mad and Start attacking him. However, I will tell you, this will only give more exposure and traffic on the Review which will lead to more people know how shitty your product is :) Instead, you can just try to work on your product and make it better

    He has also put out a lot of good information out there for marketers. His spinning guide is one of the best on the Internet.

    Mh, there have been a few things I questions he has written but all in all most of it makes sense.

    Hats off to him for his earnings, he racks them up.

    Wow the stupidity of some people just amazes me.

    I got news for you, most people don't take the time to write quality stuff for "charity" and your moral approval.

    I'm not a regular reader, but I have seen Matt's blog, and from what I remember he puts out quality stuff and I have no issues with someone like that putting affiliate links in their articles. If you learn something and he makes an affiliate sale, it's a win-win for everyone.

    If the guy ranting has a problem with that, he should take his ass elsewhere.

    I just cant belive how people can be stupid..That guy said nothing about his reviews being wrong or he intentionally praised a product that sucks just to collect his aff. commision...I mean WTF you idiots want for someone to spend his time teaching you how to do SEO,and giving you product reviews for nothing..And the worst part is you dont even have to buy the product through fucking affiliate link...

    Not to take anything from Woodwards worthiness to this forum and his contribution in some aspects to some internet marketers but i noticed that his reviews of some tools are more on the bumping sales side.
    he has every right to put the aff links wherever and whenever he sees fits and thats what we all do anyway, but like OP i'm no big fan of trickery so therefore i'm not a fan of Matt woodwards and his likes.

    I think that if the OP try the services and tools that Mathew is using in his reviews than he will realize that to the learning curve have to be payed of via good review and affiliate links in return. IT is new way of marketing. Prove me that it is working and i will buy it for sure. And he has some quite good tutorials lets say for quality and money worth link building.

    p.s I might think while i read this thread that this publicity is good publicity for Mathew. So his blog has good impact here on BHW.

    So the big complaint is that he uses affiliate links? Are you seriously whining over that? Sure, he has vested interest in the sales of the products he promotes. He only promotes products that he believes are good though and he doesn't hide the fact that he gets referral payment. Plus his tutorials are top notch.

    Its no different that Kevin Durant endorsing a big mac except Matt actually uses the products he endorses. I came to this thread expecting to read about gross misrepresentation of facts but instead its somebody belly acheing about the moral nature of affiliate links
