Taking down alphainventions

  1. @rahulsonar you'll see the email to get yourself removed right in this thread. He's never ignored a request of which I'm aware. Just email him.

  2. I actually scored one real visitor via alphainventions, who even stopped long enough to leave a real comment on what he read!

  3. I had no idea! I have submitted to, and linked to alphainventions. But I'll be requesting to be removed now. Unless there is some indication of there being something genuine about it.

    Today it has gone through the roof like never before. I didn't submit either. I've had over 500 hits from them, but now I am deflated, it's as if it were a bot!

    Thanks for illuninating.

    BTW I have thought alphas hits coincided with a worthy post I made, as if someone wanted to publicize it.

  4. Well, the news is that "Alphainventions.com will remain closed until further notice." In defense, I have seen my blog in the cycle but not gotten any hits based on the display on my screen. With the site "down" today, I've already gotten over 600 hits on my post. I would think that supports what is claimed here. how could I get over 600 hits from a site that is offline?

    There are more problems with it than listed here, but I am working to build a free model that addresses these issues. As a result of my publicity on the matter, AI is now offline. I will look to bloggers such as you to provide feedback on the effectiveness of my service once it's up and running.

  5. BTW, first and foremost requirement in what I am building is that a hit is only generated if/when someone clicks into your blog. Next: Only voluntary submission of your own blog is appropriate. Third: No donations, no subscriptions. Fourth: Longer cycles for viewing. Fifth: Multiple languages so that my blog isn't competing with one in Japanese or Spanish. There are several other things I want to do and wil not go live until it's ready. I have a T&C as well as Privacy Policy ready and will enforce them. I'm eager to go live and show the world what a service can really do for generating traffic.

    Remember, I am a blogger who believes we do this because (1) we have something to say , (2) we want to be read by others, and (3) we want reader feedback. My goal is to take care of promoting # 2 and 3 as broadly as possible, while staying honest.

  6. @trebord I left a reply on your blog about Alpha Inventions

    AS For Alpha Invention was still up & running when I checked
    the Site 5mins ago Here's a screen shot for proof

    Also I can't wait to see the service That trebord, will be offering.

  7. There's another site similar to AI called Condron.US that is like
    a blog roll in rotation. When it was first brought to my attention by another
    blogger the navigation buttons didn't work & it came across as a splog
    & some of the site is site iffy in the matter of the direction their
    trying to achieve.

    Site URL
    http://condron.us/blogroll.aspx

  8. After some other testing, it appears AI is blocking the entire subnet I used to submit blogs from. Incredible that he would go to that trouble--to create a redirect for the subnet. I will check out Condron (ironically, similar to AI in some respects). Also, I'll get back to you as soon as we're ready to go live. There's some code I'm having trouble with...

  9. The people who don't understand already tried.

    I'm not mad at you all. I just wish that you understand that I'm not a team like other great sites, and that I'm trying my best to improve alphainventions.com so that it suits every bloggers needs.

    More love it than hate it for now, and once the scale starts to go the other way, then I'll shut it down.

    Jesus please help me. Can someone pray for me? I'm dead serious.

    The reason the following is in the public is because the person I'm speaking about decided to take the issue to the public.

    Trebord, yes your entire subnet is blocked from alphainventions.com because you are a deceptive person who assumed I didn't want to hear you out, and decided to slander me in public with false statements.

    I advise anyone not to make false statements about the site if you don't understand how it works 100%. This hurts others by causing them to miss out on a valuable tool when understood, and used correctly. Man of these guys seem to understand.

    You called me a while back, and mentioned that alphainventions.com was worth $500,000 when you know it's worth tens of millions, and just because we are both African American does not mean you will steer me into your greedy corporate plot to pay a bunch of school taught techies to clone my site in order to generate revenue. I love everybody.

    Aye Tre man!! We got black president. I'm black. So what? It's over.

    I even grew up in housing projects take a look at how deep I am in my community. So what? http://www.thugplay.com

    Trebord you are a corporate person, and I am a regular working down to earth guy with a lot of self taught knowledge. So what?

    This goes to show you that no matter if it's on the streets or on the net, that many of my own kind still try to bring down with with such slander.

    Here is a video that should boost creativity to help you create your own original ideas.

    What I've built was done by a single person with a single goal & all original methods of coding that no paid geek can touch.

    Bring it on man. A little completion sharpens your skills.

    Oh condron.us

    lololollolololollo

    No comp.

  11. Bloggers should not have to go the trouble of looking up people to get themselves removed from someone else's site, and send emails. This alphainventions is utter nonesense, and irritating that so many pointless 'hits' are generated without purpose.

  12. Since I don't "inflate" my hits by going to my own blog myself (I'm always logged in when I go to WordPress, which then does not count my visits, I am told), I guess alpha will make up for that.

    Mr. Alpha, my blog also got caught by your site and I have already requested it to be removed via "contact" on your site. Please make sure my blog is not on your list anymore. Thanks.

  14. I think taking down alphainventions is a bit strong although I think it is nothing great about it. It's just a website of bot.

    I personally think the WordPress support SHOULD provide configuration to filter out what traffics going to our own blog site statistics.

    At the end, it is the cranking up inhuman blog stats that we are worry about. Right?

    So we can do our normal blogging business with more realistic blog stats and let the alphainventions do what he like. Win-Win.

  15. I would like to say 1st I have never got the thousands of hits I have seen claimed for Alpha but I have got some, also I have made some really nice contacts through Alpha, really nice, people stop being naiive you knew what you were doing when you submitted your site.

  16. Not sure if I agree with the bad hype that AI is getting. Like the previous poster, I have received a few hits that have developed into subscribers through AI.

  17. Yeah and I believe his motives were good, anyone would think he had murdered somebody.

  18. I didn't have a clue anyone thought AlphaInventions was a bother until I saw this thread. I've been using it for some weeks now, and am perfectly satisfied.

    In the first place, I regularly receive comments from readers who say, "I found you on AlphaInventions".
    As far as I know, bots don't leave personal, substantive comments related to the subject of a post.

    In addition, I've made it a practice to subtract the AlphaInvention hits from my daily totals, just to keep track of what's happening with the total of readers coming from referring links, searches, etc.
    In the time I've been with AI, I've seen a steady, substantial increase in such readership. At the time I began using AI, I was averaging 50 page views per day - nothing in the blogosphere, but good enough for a writer.

    Now, my page views apart from AlphaInventions are ranging between 100 and 200 per day. Again, that's nothing if you consider only numbers, but I'm absolutely happy with it and hope that continued exposure from AlphaInventions will help me continue that trend.

    Again, I don't have the average, but have been running between 1,000 and 2,000 AI hits per day for some time. If one percent of those folks stick around, it's more than worth it.

    Maybe I'm just not smart enough to see the problem here.

  19. Ahmmm.... please calm down. I am not accusing him anything like that. I was just thinking of a way that both sides can do their own things without conflicts.

    At the end, some people want their stats go up and some don't. Simple as that. It's a matter of choice.

  20. I feel very weary of this AI program. I would really like my blog stats to be as accurate as possible. So it troubles me to think that I'm receiving a hit every time his page accesses mine. No one is gaining a substantive look at my blog unless they click through, so I'd prefer if I my site only recorded hits if the reader clicked through. I've asked to be removed, we'll see if it actually happens.

  21. Much as I don't rate Alphainventions - when I put together the following post http://functioningalcoholic.wordpress.com/2009/02/07/alphainventions-a-trick-or-a-treat/
    I got the most replies I've had to any of my posts (And 4,500 page views in a single evening). That kinda indicates that some people are pushing that pause button in time & actually reading the post.
