Lots of readers commented and emailed me because they wanted me to make a post about iLSuL6ana, a blog that as far I can tell consists of nothing but boring advertising. There doesn’t seem to be any effort at all in the posts and you can tell because a lot of it is copy pasted and any attempt at original writing looks like smeared beans on a grill.
Whatever, what else is new with for greedy bloggers in Kuwait? But then I clicked on the Advertise With iLSuL6ana page and two things caught my eye.
First, iLSuL6ana has such a difficult time keeping up advertising for the site that they actually hired a company called Ghaliah Technology to take care of all their advertising upkeep. I guess clicking a couple times to put an ad in an ad space requires you to be a rocket scientist, or at least that’s what iLSuL6ana believes.
Second, there is a straight up lie on the page. Check out this screenshot they posted for views for May 2012:
Bullshit. No way did they get over 1 million views for just one month on their sad attempt of a blog. And you can easily prove that it’s fake by checking their Alexa Page. Under the page views you can see there was a slight bump in views during the end of May 2012, but no way did that bump give them over 1 million page views.
And using other sites that give information about website views supports this argument, like this graph from SiteLogiq:
Based on that graph their average page views on May 2012 was 10,000, but let’s give them the benefit of the doubt and say on average they had 15,000 views per day. 15,000*31 days in May = 465,000 page views for the month. Half of what they’re claiming it is.
I know what you’re thinking. “But it’s a screenshot! It must be real!” Hah. What’s so fishy about this very case is that usually when someone posts one of these “page views images” they directly link to a site that shows the stats, or at least provide a larger screenshot providing proof that it’s their own stats for their website. Instead, they posted a screenshot which could easily be faked. Hell, here’s my best attempt using Microsoft Paint:
So why would they do this. Easy answer: $$$$$. They put that screenshot right on the “advertise with us” page so that companies can see that they get “over 1 million views a month” and quickly pay iLSuL6ana to get their ads up and get lots of views. That is really dishonest and just goes to prove that iLSuL6ana cares about nothing but money.
But hey, I could be wrong. So that’s why I’m calling you out iLSuL6ana. Show us proof or come clean!
