    make sure you tell the newsletter that they are promoting a parasite and that it's the reason that you are going to unsubscribe

    It could be that the outfit that puts out the newsletter may be a subsidiary of Metrics. I'm checking it out.

    I have run into the 'MetricsDirect Solutions' in several other areas. Just recently I was looking at buying some traffic from a site that offers traffic from expired domains.

    Several emails to and from the owner (?) of the site about price, quantity, etc. The last email from the owner said something like 'we can provide 8 million page views per day'.

    Big red flag. The ads were for a very tight niche that gets about 6k searches per day (the average of Overture and Wordtracker). So, I looked more closely at the site.

    On a page deep within the site was an explanation. They provide 'traffic' "at the exact time the shopper is searching for your product".

    A google search of sitename+metricsdirect. Sure enough there they are!

    I didn't even bother to answer the last email from this guy.

    Wonder how many innocents fall for this type of promotion?

    So you are saying that Metrics is a scam? They gave you $100? There must be catch. No one gaves away that amount of money for nothing in return.ehhh
