    I'd have to agree here. I clicked the "order" link (no, I didn't buy anything), but I always check to see what I'm buying.

    It clearly shows you get 1 issue free of a $29.95/mo subscription that you can cancel anytime, or even choose not to receive in the 1st place!

    It's the same as with a lot of software you buy on the Internet. They charge you $4.95 extra for a "backup copy" stored on their server... or $xxx for a CD. I always un-check those extra's. If you don't read what you are actually buying...... (fill in the blanks).

    Almost 99% of transactions online have additional offers attached to them, please realize them. Even when you register domain names, web hosting, etc, you get additional suggestions checked by default. Its your responsibility to read out the full agreement before initiating any transactions. Its not Joel's problem that people fail to read and comprehend simple English, as Nut65 implied.

    And for the record, those who say that Joel's e-books are useless and the information is available freely elsewhere, consider this. Joel was pioneering SEO and Adsense optimization from the time when many people did not know what it was.

    Nowadays, blogs and websites have sprouted claiming to be SEO experts when in reality, they have borrowed many concepts from Joel's writings.

    I would just like to add that I have purchased resources from Joel, and all my success is credited to him. If you don't like him, don't buy his books... Simple!!!

    Name them.

    And, uh, his "concepts" are nothing. Even the noobs here know just about the same things.

    It's just rehashed, recycled info.


    "Pioneering"? *chuckles* Actually, no, he wasn't.

    What's your url?

    This I will agree with.

    one of our premium adsense publishers here caught him first hand lying/posing. There is a photo of him carrying a dhl or fedex envelope with the subtitle me receiving my google check. After contacting google he find out that google never in it's history sent checks through fedex or dhl or whatever the hell it was.

    Just one of his bs. Anyway, ebooks are only good when u want to learn photoshop and premier so u get a book with tutorials. Never bought one, never will buy any.

    I signed up for the free stuff and found it was quite good, for a novice. Although a problem I had, was a lot of the info was out of date. The newsletter sent snail mail was good looking, but had little good content. I cancelled on website and cancellation confirmation came through after 2 days.

    Thanks for spreading misinformation.

    It was shoemoney that posted the original article and he actually offered to remove it from DP for me since he discovered he was wrong. Google has sent me checks via Fedex, UPS AND DHL. Now we just do direct deposit.

    Go read the thread before you continue perpetuating lies.

    BTW, $25,000 month in AdSense in October, totally passive... in a "down" economy. Not bad at all.

    Busy week ahead. Profits to all!

    Now, now guys. are we giving him a bad name and hanging him

    Yes there was some fine print problems which may have got people a little hot under the collar
    I have been hit by this before from another marketer and although I was pretty upset, I simply unsubscribed

    I think though that stones are being thrown here that may be fuelled by rumours rather than facts

    I don't know Mr Comm and am not a client of his, but I think that as internet marketers, we are all at risk of negative press.

    Just hope that if it is me in the hot seat, my colleagues will give me the benefit of the doubt

    Was it not a few weeks ago that the founder of this forum came under a similar flury of bad press?

    Both :)

    Had many $25,000 months. Oct 2008 was very good.

    Noticing a downtrend the past few days, but these things go in cycles.

    Cycles.

    Revenue goes up.

    Revenue goes down.

    It's never the same day to day. It changes.

    Yet in all these years, I'm still averaging over $500/day.
