Thank you to Aaron Wall and SEOBook!

I'm getting a lot of questions in emails every day, I figure you folks can use a good FAQ. These are actual questions I've received in actual emails from actual people. I have these emails. Each and every email has a full header, and can be proven to be legitimate. Each of the following questions and answers are formatted as follows, the question is in green text, and is a question that I've received from several different people. The answers are from me and me only, and consist of my OPINIONs.




Your Emails



Money Saved

New Scam?



Q: Who are you, and why did you start this site?
A: I'm not going to tell you who I am. Suffice it to say, I am someone who, IN MY OPINION, was wronged by Traffic Power. They know who I am. This site is my answer to Traffic Power's unwillingness to refund money which was, IN MY OPINION, taken from me under false pretenses. Most of the emails I've received from others tell a similar story, but I do receive some rabid Traffic Power supporters threatening me, and I'd rather they didn't know where I live.

Q: I've lost money to Traffic Power/My site was just banned from Google. Can you help me?
A: If I knew the secret of how to get your money back from Traffic Power, I would have never started this website in the first place. As for the Google bannings, it is hard to say 100% whether a site was banned because of Traffic Power, or some other thing the site owner has done. Even if I were to prove that your site was banned because of Traffic Power, as far as I know the only thing to do is re-submit it to Google after fixing whatever got it banned in the first place.

Q: Has anyone from Traffic Power contacted you?
A:  I've received a few emails from people at Traffic Power. One "Sales Manager" told me my site was garbage and I didn't know what I was talking about. When I emailed her back so she could point out exactly what was wrong on my site, she told me my "list of blacklisted websites is wrong". When I mentioned that I didn't have a list of blacklisted website, in fact (until this page) I had never even mentioned the word "blacklisted", she never emailed me back. Typical.

I also had a call from them, my caller ID said Traffic Power. I didn't answer it, I know better. Rule number one: Never talk on the phone to anyone from Traffic Power! IN MY OPINION this is what got me in trouble in the first place, I was guaranteed things on the phone, and when I called them on it, their answer was, "If it isn't in writing, it doesn't count". I received an email about 10 minutes later from someone telling me he was trying to contact me "in regards to an email" he had received. I emailed him back and told him I would only talk to him via email, as I had to have everything in writing. Guess what: He never emailed me back either. Note: I still have this email, with full headers, which can be traced to prove that it was an actual email from Traffic Power.

Q: What do you want from Traffic Power?
A: That's easy. I WANT MY MONEY BACK. Period. End of story. Not one penny less of the $4001.00 I spent. When that money is in my bank, I will wash my hands of this mess and never think of them again. I told them about 9 months ago, when one of my first credit card disputes didn't go through (I think I did 6 total, I lost every one) that if I didn't get my money back I would cost them a lot more than I had lost. I even gave that to them in writing. Guess they didn't believe me. So far it has cost them at least $37,000.00 (as of 6/28/04), check HERE to see if the total has changed.

Q: What can we do?
A: Again, I don't know how to get your money back from Traffic Power. One thing you can do is to sign up for the potential Class Action Lawsuit against them, if you would like to be included, just email me at Another thing is to possibly complain to Google, I don't know if it will do any good, but it can't hurt. If anyone knows how to get in touch with some of the higher ups at Google, email me the information, and I will do what I can.
