Ad Masquerading as Entrecard Widget. Please Do Not Accept this Ad

Written By David D'Angelo on Thursday, April 10, 2008 | 4/10/2008

Today while dropping on entrecard widgets I accidentally clicked on this ad of Z Solutions Exchange. I clicked it at least 3 times because I was surprised that it redirected me to another site and then only to find out that it was not an entrecard widget but an advertisement.

I found this ad on Marriage and Beyond and Scott's Space and all I can say is that this ad does not deserve a place in a member site of Entrecard.

First and foremost because it is fooling everyone into clicking it because they will think at first that it is a widget, the result it drives traffic to that site by mere accident. The second point is that this site is not even a member of Entrecard, so I think EC has to do something about it for I believe it infringes some copyright.

I hope that fellow EC members will read and spread this post and ban this advertiser from their site. Just remember the logo and the site name for I will not even dare put a link to their site here.

So you thought this was an entrecard widget .. well it is not and it is a shameless use of the entrecard widget to drive clicks through this ad.

Please do not accept this ad on your blogs. Thanks!

Will have this ad canceled soon. The hubby has told me yesterday to do just that, I kind of refused because I thought entrecarders will soon find out it's a trick. But I soon figured as I was also tricked more than four times while dropping cards. It's true, it's a shameless way to advertise.

Thanks for the advise! Happy Entrecard dropping! God bless! :-)

There are a few out there like it, and it makes me so mad. Nothing but pure trickery. And really tacky.
