The Download Sites Scam

Andy Brice, Creator the table planning software PerfectTablePlan, did a little experiment and posted an obviously fake software program to a lot download sites, and not only got listed on a lot of them – he also got many 5-star awards from some of those sites, read his post here.

I've suspected this for some time, when you're looking for software those days often all you find are those spammy, low quality and ad filed download sites, they get their high search engine position by sending all those 5-star awards and getting a link from sites posting them.

I haven't submitted yaTImer, my time tracking software, to any download sites yet, but when I do I'm going to be very careful about linking back to those sites.
