As usual I like to spend sometime to "spy" on what data sent out from my computer. And I analyzed Keyword Elite 2.0. This is WHAT I HAVE TO SAY:

Brad is a BEAST. As I analyzed the data, KE2.0 did collect all "Competition Strength" from your PC, intelligent??? He sell his software for 1000s of you and he got 1000s zombies for him to collect Keywords "Competition Strength" (and maybe more like Adwords Competition Snipper, I didn't analyze this part but I guessed so. I usually analyze all the data sent out from my PC and found something interesting about Brad Callen)

Who the hell know how he will use all these keywords data? 1000s ways to make money of these data and he doesn't have to do anything to get all these data (YOU ARE HIS VICTIMS, zombies).

About "Adwords Competition Snipper" You sniff your competitors' keywords and HE SPY ON YOU, these data will be stored on his DB and he will sell these data or JV with Google Cash Detective (GCD i think you know this)

About your "Goldmine Keywords" (analyzed from Search Engine Dominator) do you know how much these data worth? And He Does Nothing To Get These Easy Data From HIS ZOMBIES

So GOOD LUCK with KE2.0!!! I love you guys! I got my money back yesterday! ;)

Someone have any ideas? Brad Callen Support is also WORST. He didn't even read your question and answer as like he didn't know who are you. lol This pissed me off.

Pretty smart of him... but pretty dick.

What program did you use to analyze the outgoing traffic? If you can analyze it, can't you also block it?

I use TCPview by sysinternals and can get an instant WHOIS on any outgoing or
traffic from my PC. But any decent firewall should tell you that as well and you can block any connection.

youngguy I understand what you're saying but I don't know how you are able to prove it. Care to elaborate a little?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not sticking up for Brad at all. I too purchased KE 2.0 and quickly requested a refund.

whilesst this MAY be true - this as a fact does not negate all the good points about KE 2.0 - I persoanlly luv the thing (only cos it cost me nuthin) and the adwords spy - ability - it outta this world - I can see every campaign run by every company AND their keywords, how long they have been in use yada yada yada

So - yes - Truth may be right but I can't get a refund and have two computers in use anyways - one for storing all those million $$$ keywords in and one just for brad (LOL)

@Youngguy - Don't take this the wrong way. I realize you are upset for a bunch of reasons about Brad Callen and KE 2.0. That's fine.

But I think you should just give it a rest already. I'm not defending Brad in any way, but you cannot prove that his KE 2.0 is his personal spy tool. Maybe it's true, maybe not. Who cares.

If you want to complain about Brad and his tools and service, then you should do it somewhere else. This is BHW. A forum for making money; not posting your complaints about other people.

If you don't like Brad that much, make a blog or something and rant there. But at least have the decency to not use our forum for stuff like this.

ok if you want a Proof I will post screenshot for you soon my BH fellows ;).

Or you want to see me live on the analyzing process? ;) I'm willing to show it to you!

@Yukinari84: Yes I've complained but I DID SHOW MORE INFORMATION about Brad's BlackHat methods to make more and more money is it what we need to learn from BRAD? hehehe HAT OFF BRAD! A REAL BLACKHAT GUY! Pay 200$ to be his ZOMBIES ;) GREAT!

P.S. I can Prove anything I said in this thread. Who want a Proof, send me a message. I don't have any proof that Brad will use these data to sell or JV somewhere but I can PROVE that KE2.0 is really COLLECTING DATA FROM YOU by posting back what Analyzed from your computer to HIS SERVER. This is my report for information only

I definitely would not put this past him.

This is basically the same thing as what PPC bully did, and also GCD.

It's kinda "unethical" but a pretty smart way to make hundreds of thousands...

To tell the truth, I liked this guy, Brad, before but ... hmm after the success of SEO Elite & KE 1.0 (I found it really useful and don't have any "spy" tool inside, no data post back), he developed EVERYTHING just to make him money more and more. Look at his sale letter, all hyped, I have waded through the Brad Callen Spam Attack lol.

My Review:

1. Google Site Targeter: Ummmm... useless, many free tool can do this: google "adwords digger"
2. JV Diamond Miner: it knows which sites are profitable? lol Just Google your keyword to find them - you don't need Keyword Elite 2 to find a list for spamming.
3. CPA Magnet Program: Just pull some data from sources like offervault, etc...
4. Adwords Time Machine: it's a part of GCD, pull data from GCD. And this is why I think Brad collect data for GCD. just a baby compairing to KeywordSpy ;) But this feature is the main reason I buy KE2.
5. Adwords Competition Snipper: A lot of free tool can do this.
6. Keyword Surge: mainly pull data from WordPot.com and keywords stats maybe outdated but hmm I found it useful for me to find hidden niche.
7. Market Research Sleuth: just like any other tools can do. MS is a best choice.
8. Search Engine Dominator: Good feature but sadly it's a spy tool and you're his zombie. (I asked about this in BradCallen's support desk but he never replied me on this question lol, and 2 weeks ago he got a "php error" in his spy function ;) I'm fucking know about this shaddy method, believe me)

Anyone have more reviews?

I wonder whether he's also using the data for that hyped piece of spyware crap (that cost him well over $100k to develop) PPC Web Spy or whatever it was called? Seems convenient.

I used to use KWE up to about version 1.6, but it was very slow and i prefer a lot of the data given in free tools now, along with some paid tools such as MNF, to name but one.

Personally guys I think life is too short to keep on bagging this guy. KE 2.0 does a decent job of spying and I like it so Ia m gonna go out and say

KE 2.0 ROCKS

and too bad for anyone who disagrees - I don't care

We are all entitled to our opinions regardless of what that opinion is based on

There's no secret in this. When you use the keyword surge module of KE2, you have the option to use the "Keyword Elite Engine". It is checked by default.

How do you think he built this "Keyword Elite Engine" database?

By collecting users queries of course, but he is not hiding at all. It's here in front of you, just launch the Keyword Surge module and you will see that this database is selected by default.

Also if you watch the training videos posted on his recent KE University, in one of these videos Loz talks about this KE database.

To me there's nothing wrong in this, this database grows thanks to the user queries and all the users benefit from it.
