    Angry Tiptier.com Rips Off Marketing Gorilla
    I'm not wasting a good opportunity on a private forum. I want this one front and center for the world to see.

    Another program manager tipped me off that his clients were getting spam messages from someone trying to poach the merchant away from them. The messages were from an SEO company called Tiptier.com out of California.

    The html email had my blog header with the words changed and the guy put together a package for merchants called the Tiptier Affiliate Gorilla, using my web content.

    One of the services this guy offers is reputation management. He's a coward with an anonymous registration and no personal history on his site. Let's see if we can draw him out of his bunker for a good old fashioned ABW flamewar ass kicking.

    It had me fooled Greg as I received one to a merchant account I am no longer managing but it looks like my email address is still on it. So at minimum they are contacting programs for CJ, might lodge a complaint there.

    P.O.S. even has a fake copyright of 2004, name wasn't reg'd until 2010. Throw in fake seals and awards.

    And, of course, not found for any key terms/phrases related to SEO, ROFL...

    File a DMCA complaint with his host... if he's using your content, that's pretty clear copyright violation.

    And let's make sure this thread is top ranked in google for Tiptier.com review, Tiptier review, Tiptier.com scam, Tiptier.com affiliate services, who is Tiptier.com..

    One would think they would have contacted me by now. How good is their reputation management if they let their own brand drown for 48 hours?

    Meh. A lot of companies talk about reputation management because it's a buzzword and they know that the goal is to make the top 10 Google results for your brand name positive or neutral. Very few companies have actually developed monitoring tools.

    Also, good reputation management companies know that to effectively manage your reputation you must be a genuinely reputable organization. Tiptier is obviously not that so they're going to have problems no matter how good their technology is (and remember, it's not).

    Nathan, I think the reputation management comment was tongue in check.

    Yeah, I'm still seeing their other pages. Why take down only the homepage? Guess I need to add a couple backlinks from my sites as well to your post and this thread with the anchor text "tiptier review" and "tiptier affiliate management."
    --Tricia Meyer-- I love being the exception to the rule.
