hottraffic.org Review Is It a Scam
Whenever I see these types of websites I tend to go straight to the FAQ section because I notice with these websites that they refuse to explain to the customer where this traffic is coming from. Reading hottraffic.org’s FAQ section makes me really wonder about them. I would really like someone to tell me what the big secret is. Out of all these traffic generator sites that I’ve reviewed I have only seen one that has openly displayed where and how they deliver their traffic.
Hottraffic.org gives me only one clue to where and how they deliver traffic and it’s found at the bottom of their FAQ page. It states the following this can viewed at http://www.hottraffic.org/faq.php#17 and for the record the date I am writing this post is April 08 2010.
“Do you use pop-unders or Pop-ups to advertise my site?
No, we do not use pop-unders or pop-ups for advertising as it is the no more effective advertising method due to 90% of internet users have pop-up blockers installed which makes that advetising method obsolete.
We use redirected visitors from expired domains mainly, and misspelled keywords from search engines, and contextual ads to deliver traffic for clients.”
HotTraffic.org Is It a Scam
Now why I find this interesting is that most of these companies use pop under advertising. As many of you eventually find out Pop Up blockers can’t stop pop under adverting many AOL users know exactly what I am talking about. They go on to say they get visitors from redirected visitors from expired domains mainly, and misspelled keywords from search engines”
If that’s how you want increase traffic to your website be my guest. But that to me sounds like one of the worst ways to have your website traffic increased.
Low Quality web traffic
That type of traffic sounds like extremely low quality. But if you are new to getting traffic to your website it might sound like the best thing in the world. I also recommend reading the terms before making a purchase at Hottraffic.org I saw some interesting things in the terms when I read it. Personally I would not use their service under any circumstance none the less that shouldn’t stop you from using them.
If you think that Hot Traffic has the type of traffic you want for your website(s) give them a try please leave me a comment if you do explaining your experience. Before I go I highly recommend you get Google analytics added to your website before making a purchase so you can track where your visitors are coming from. Thanks for reading my post best wishes to you increasing traffic to your website.

How to get web traffic to your site for $2
7 thoughts on “hottraffic.org Review Is It a Scam”
I found there website in search of hopefully generating some traffic for my website so I got the 14.00 dollar package for 5000 visitors. Within 5 minutes of getting my package I already almost had 100 visitors. So I checked my hit counter not any on my end. I figured id wait a couple days and see what happened. 2 days go by and i have 900 visitors. My hit counter says nothing. And i know for 100% fact the my counter works. By the third day I had over 2400 hits.
So by now im pretty positive that site is a scam. I asked him if he could show me how I was getting visitors to my site and reply was the stat counter on his website. Its ran by a database that 100% accurate. I didnt believe it. I go my hit counter said nothing at all. So I asked for my money back because the numbers dont match up. He replies no way on the refund. And refers me to his terms page.(And by the way this company is completely ran by one person IM NOT KIDDING).
His terms was “You are guaranteed that we will send the number of visitors to the URL you specify within 60 days are less of the campaign starting date . This is the only guarantee for this service.”(not even the wright spelling in his terms). Also he claims to be verisign secured right on his homepage. And yet he doesnt accept credit cards just paypal and google checkout. But hes site isn’t actually verisign secured. So by advertising that he is actually breaking the law.
And the hit counter on his own website is a myspace hit counter. Wouldnt you think if he had a huge 100% accurate database that hes own hit counter would be that as well. He is using a myspace hit counter for a website that he claimed to be a million dollar company. So i wrote him another email asking him to prove the hits and ask how im kidding them. And he told me “”proof look at your bstat counterv see were the visitors come from, i have 300-400 campains no complains only you. wacko”” thats exactly what the email was.
Than i wrote this back to him. “”Hey seriously if your not giving me a refund. I want prove that these hits are legit or i will continue with this claim. If your a million dollar company like you say than prove it. Show me how my site is being seen. I want prove. I want prove. Without prove that your actually doing what your website says your doing that would be illegal. So show me prove so I can see it and be done with this. Cause without prove its false advertisement of services and its illegal.
If you dont believe me look it up. So show me the prove or I will be reporting you to the proper authorities for your false advertisement of goods and services. Running scams is illegal and so far since you cant prove what your doing is legit. you are running a scam. And if you dont prove to me that these hits are legit. I will be reporting you ASAP.”” Hes reply was “”Man your some kind of wacko f*ck off a*sh*le!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i will take your website down in 5 minutes, this is why we have 80 percent repeat business, and we our rated so high with paypal and why we advertise for all major companys. good luck to you. “” I copied and pasted all those emails from my inbox.
Than i wrote to him. “”Hey seriously if your not giving me a refund. I want prove that these hits are legit or i will continue with this claim. If your a million dollar company like you say than prove it. Show me how my site is being seen. I want prove. I want prove. Without prove that your actually doing what your website says your doing that would be illegal. So show me prove so I can see it and be done with this.

Running scams is illegal and so far since you cant prove what your doing is legit. you are running a scam. And if you dont prove to me that these hits are legit.
I will be reporting you ASAP.”” He immediately gave me my money back. Im glad my money back. But that just proves to me that it was a scam and once I mentioned the law i got my money back.
“So show me the prove or I will be reporting you to the proper authorities for your false advertisement of goods and services. Running scams is illegal and so far since you cant prove what your doing is legit. you are running a scam”
I’m shocked at Mr. Talbot’s remarks about false advertising. What about pretending to be a BBB Accredited Business when you’re not? Until this past Wednesday, Mr. Talbot displayed the BBB Accredited Business logo on his website hypergoblin.com. The Utah BBB confirmed that hypergoblin LLC WAS NOT a BBB Accredited Business.
He also displays the EPA Green Power Partner mark on his website WITHOUT the required click through to the EPA website. He has been asked to explain this but so far has refused.
Isn’t this false advertising that should be reported ASAP to the proper authorities?
I read about this on Ripoff Report: http://www.ripoffreport.com/internet-fraud/hypergoblin-llc/hypergoblin-llc-clint-talbot-d-8a105.htm
Actually the person who posted that claim about hypergoblin.com is false. The BBB logo was there only because we were under the impression that we could have it there during our review. Plus we removed it when they asked us to. With no problem. And the Green information is true because hypergoblin is a reseller for a company that is green certified. You can look that up directly on the epa’s website. If the company we resell for advertises to us that they are green we are LEGALLY allowed to do the same because we are selling there products and or services. And this has been discussed on that report on ripoffreport.com. Maybe you should read it a little more closely. Plus Clint talbot and hypergoblin were completed slandered and no evidence has been given against them. Everything in that claim is of personal opinion. Plus we sale hosting service for 2.99 a month. We don’t sale fake hits to peoples websites for many. That is fraud and a scam. Selling hosting is NOT fraud or a scam. NOPE!!! Not in any way shape or form. The service you get from us is EXACTLY what we advertise. Nobody gets ripped off and all of our clients are very happy with what they get. ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!
That ripoffreport was done by somebody who has not provided any evidence of wrong doing by Clint or HyperGoblin.com NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not now and not then. So I admit having the BBB logo up there was wrong but I was under the impression we could. As for everything else it is NOT false advertising. IT IS NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!
I CAN ADVERTISE TO MY CLIENTS WHAT THE COMPANY WE RESELL FOR ADVERTISES TO US.
So no it is NOT false advertising. And we don’t rip people off. I was just posting this comment to keep people from actually getting ripped off by this company. That’s all.
On a side note after posting this claim this person did give me a refund. So if you wanna use his service go ahead. But it did not work for me. I constantly emailed him and after he had talked crap to me he finally gave me a refund.
That ripoffreport is false and no evidence will ever be brought forth. I hope this helps.
Any person who ran a million dollar company would never use language like that. So, if those emails Clint has posted are accurate, this has scam written all over it.
As for Cloudwisp…your source is ripoff report? You do realize that there are about 1,000 or more sites that are solely dedicated to exposing ripoff report for the scam it is. Trust me, the biggest scam on that site is the site itself.
Think about it. I can post anything I want about anyone I want, while providing no proof to back up the validity of these claims. Then, it’s out there forever because ripoff report never takes down posts. That said, if you’re willing to pay $2000, you can enter their arbitration program where essentially, they’ll redact information, and state that their “arbitrator” finds the report to be false.
So, to review. Assuming I knew your real identity, I could go on ripoff report, and claim that you are a pedophile, a rapist, etc. No facts would be checked, and that would be put out there for public consumption. Now, when you’re looking to clear your name, you can pay $2000 for the site to tell everyone that they find the claims to be false.
I’m only in my second year of law school, but it sounds a little like extortion to me.
For Jason: My source is MYSELF. I didn’t author the RipOff Report about Hypergoblin but I DID call the Utah BBB and verified that Hypergoblin was NOT a BBB accredited business. Additionally, the Utah BBB informed me that they had NO FILES about Hypergoblin at that time. Perhaps Clint will try to explain what this alleged “review” he babbles about was-it wasn’t with the Utah BBB when I contacted them. Perhaps Clint will tell us WHEN HE PAID the BBB for this alleged “review” process?
Additionally, the Utah BBB has this posted on their review of Hypergoblin: “BBB made two or more requests for background information from the business. BBB has not received a response from this business and/or has not been able to verify information received from this business.”
You can verify this with the BBB at http://www.bbb.org/utah/business-reviews/internet-web-hosting-companies/hypergoblin-in-west-jordan-ut-22310252
I have several emails from the Utah BBB whereas they told me they were going to contact Clint to have the BBB accredited business seal removed from his website.
Go figure, eh?
I agree with Jason. Ripoffreport.com is the biggest scam site on the internet. Anybody can post anything about anybody for everybody to see. And they can do so without providing any kind of evidence to back up there claim.. As for the BBB they are no different. I know for a fact that are a fraudulent company that will accept payoffs to remove bad reports and replace them with good ones. They are not a government accredited company for any state. So basically there just like ripoffreport.com. Plus if you search for the BBB on other scam sites all of them have reports of there fraudulent activities… No I went through that entire report about HyperGoblin/Clint and they original person that posted the claim didn’t respond to anything when called out by HyperGoblin. Nothing!! Ripoffreport.com allows you to upload files and suck to prove your case and if this person really paid for services wouldn’t he or she have some kind of prove? But they couldn’t provide anything to back up there claim. Not one piece of documentation or anything could be provided. That right there was a red flag for me. I mean if you really had a case then something would of been provided. If not something then at least some kind of response to the inquiry that he or she posted on the scam site known as Ripoffreport.com.. Maybe this person didn’t any kind of business with Clint but has a personal relationship with him and decided to slander his name for whatever reason. I’m just saying that anybody can say whatever they want on those websites without any prove at all. I mean they give you the option to pick who you are when filing these claims or writing rebuttals on them.. By that I mean I could say that I was the CEO of some random company and start posting stuff. I think it’s bullshit and those types of sites should be illegal because they are the ones actually running the scams. I.E. Ripoffreport.com the BBB.com and so forth… And for Cloudwisp who the hell cares if he didn’t contact the BBB. He’s not required by any law to do so. They are NOT a government company and they are in it to make money so collecting payoffs for them is what its all about… I mean they gotta make money somewhere right?? And another thing HyperGoblin advertising to there clients what the company they resell for advertises to them is not wrong or illegal.. THERE SELLING THERE PRODUCTS AND OR SERVICES.. There suppose to advertise what there selling. If they didn’t then nobody would know what to buy… That seems pretty logical to me…
And plus every person in that report on ripoffreport.com admitted to not knowing Clint. Hmmmmm seems a little odd that known of those people know him but yet they sit there and talk crap to him. A little strange to me. I think some ONE person went out of there way to create this huge report with no evidence and created multiple users to bad mouth HyperGoblin/Clint.. I mean you can create as many accounts on that website as you want… They don’t care and for good reason too. They wanna make money… Just my opinion I don’t feel that the report filed against them is true… It seems to be fabricated..
And one more thing any kind of personal business that Clint would have had with the BBB(not a government company) would of been between them. They are not legally allowed to disclose that kind of information DUMBASS!!(Cloudwisp)
Oh and so the owner of million dollar company can’t use swear words? That make no sense to me..
Original Post made by Steve…”Maybe this person didn’t any kind of business with Clint but has a personal relationship with him and decided to slander his name for whatever reason.”… BINGO!! I know him PERSONALLY. And I met him through his website. Sat and had lunch when I had problems with the site, and he fixed them beyond my expectations. It’s sad why people come on and do this, but Clint has told me all about this particular person. I will not go into details about that, as I don’t want to be a “slanderer” as he is all over the net.
Good luck in the future Clint, I will get in touch with you soon.
