Horrible Death by Dihydrogen Monoxide

We NEED to Ban this Chemical from use ASAP!

As our Beloved US national Holiday closes in on us I want to WARN all of you of this dangerous chemical that literally kills thousands per year and is backed by the US government for every day use!

That is right, it is responsible for thousands of deaths per year in US alone, and been a tool of murders world wide, directly leads to erosion of the earth and ozone depletion!

AND the Government ENDORSES it's use, even going so far as to promote it's use!!!

Help Stop this madness and leave you email in the comment field so I can begin a national ban on this EXTREMELY unstable chemical!

Hey it is a Holiday you'll want to go places, go there free with this FREE $1500 Gas Gift Card


Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide is the scientific name for Water :) Have a Great Holiday weekend!

Quick Definitions

As some e mailers have pointed out:

"...although you may be Mr. Acronym we are not- how about defining those for us...?"

Ok, I do tend to get ahead of myself so I'll try to define a few (and come back over time to update this)

SEM: Refers to the paid or sponsored listing you find on Consumer Traffic Sites (Yahoo, Google, MSN, Ask, etc) These listings are paid for and ranked according to bid and relevancy

SEO: Refers to organic or grown listings that are not paid for (unless you count link/traffic purchases!) and are typically ranked higher depending upon traffic (consumers visiting website) link strength (high traffic sites exchanging posted links) and quality score

Quality Score: (I'll try my best but really Go here for in depth
Basically Search Engines (Google) want consumers (you) to find the closet matching website/offer to your search query as possible, through statistical analysis such as click through rates, local search matches/clicks, and a host of other stats they determine what is best for you to see when you search

Google: The search engine handles 78% of all consumers surfing (not including Asian markets), in terms of search engines they are #1 and no one is even close (sadly, I hate monopolies it ruins invention)

Typos: somthing I do quite often, pleas forgive me... : )

BTW: I am not Mr. Acronym I just hate typing : )

Advocate Group Update

Well the team has been quite busy with their research and you should see a few new posts and offers being investigated (Travel is always one of my favorites) so click away on the link section.

Also I have asked the group to guest post on others blogs so we can see some different offers, conclusions, and Q&A from differing views/authors

Since we can get focused and busy with this research (it can take 4-6 hours per offer to investigate!) we always welcome comments, questions, and related links (we will do the grunt work for you!~)

I have received numerous emails concerning the Refer-A-Friend option on my Wii offer (from World Avenue) and I will devout a post explaining this in much greater depth (Thanks CJ, HH, & Laurie88)

The Free Network

I have established the grass roots of our network!

Please give a warm welcome to the webmasters and their blogs- each specialized in "Free Offers" within a specific marketing vertical:

Arts Crafts & Hobbies :

Consumer Electronics:


Clothing & Accessories:

Health Beauty & Medical(no drugs):

Books Multi-Media Entertainment:

Toys and Games:

Food & Drink:

Home & Garden::

Sports & Recreation::

Cars Trucks & Boats:

Each of these webmasters have promised to help grow my research! In order to identify and research Free Offers we decided to break them down to manageable catagories; this gives me greater depth of investigation as well as recruiting some help to get to all the offers!

Free Nintendo Wii Game system?

Today We examine the persuasive "Free Nintendo Wii" Offer

Up to recently there was literally no such thing as a 100% Free (Free meaning: You pay absolutely nothing) offer.

Apparently the old system was based upon consumers not completing enough qualifying offers in the time provided- giving revenue to the company but not the product to the consumer

This site (and in reality it's network of sites/offers) turned that around-in fact since August 15th, 2008 they altered the method for consumers to actually promote and allow 100% free items!

What is the catch? Well simple enough you must complete offers that require $0 $0 Shipping and handling - i.e. free trials or credit cards (sign up for discover card get it and use once-on anything...

so as long as they keep this system you can in fact get anything they offer for free- we will keep an eye on this to see if it stands true- check back for updates

This is a SEO catalog page they use SEM (paid listings) to advertise- I would disable the code following the .com but that seems to re-direct you to a default page not the offer...

Free: Truth in Advertising Rules

What truth-in-advertising rules apply to advertisers?
Under the Federal Trade Commission Act:

  • Advertising must be truthful and non-deceptive;
  • Advertisers must have evidence to back up their claims; and
  • Advertisements cannot be unfair
What makes an advertisement deceptive?

According to the FTC's Deception Policy Statement, an ad is deceptive if it contains a statement - or omits information - that:

  • Is likely to mislead consumers acting reasonably under the circumstances; and
  • Is "material" - that is, important to a consumer's decision to buy or use the product.

What makes an advertisement unfair?
According to the Federal Trade Commission Act and the FTC's Unfairness Policy Statement, an ad or business practice is unfair if:

  • it causes or is likely to cause substantial consumer injury which a consumer could not reasonably avoid; and
  • it is not outweighed by the benefit to consumers.
