Buyer Beware of Mike Filsaime!!! I have always been an honest man and have proudly conducted myself as such in all my business and personal affairs. That is why I am so worked up over Mike Filsaime and his business practices .

In my research of Mike Filsaime and his business practices, I have come across many others who feel as disgusted and frustrated in thier dealings with Mike Filsaime as well. I have repeatedly emailed and called Mike Filsaime on the phone requesting that he take me off of his " Seven Figure Secrets" and twice, without my authorization, Mike Filsaime has gone into my bank account and taken money out of it. I have been forced to change my account as the only means of keeping the very dishonest Mike Filsaime out of it.

My wife and I are both on ssi due to serious health issues and need every dime we get to survive and support our children. Hence, the reason I have been searching on the internet for a way to supplement our income and, in my book, when Mike Filsame continued to take money out of my account after repeated request that he not do so, then Mike Filsaime has shown himself to be a thief that uses the internet for personal gain regardless of who he may be hurting.

Search Engines And There Unknown Tactics

AUTHOR: Ricky - (U.S.A.)

From the Desk of Eric Owens

A question that I frequently hear from my clients is:
"Do I really need to have my own domain name to get my distributor or affiliate link listed in the Search Engines?"

The one word answer is 'YES.' First, many search engines are 'truncating' distributor and affiliate links (reducing them to the basic link, which is often the company website minus your distributor or affiliate code), or even worse... search engines are banning affiliate links, and blacklisting sub domains of the parent company that contain certain obvious characters that are not obviously part of the base site.

Second, a very common practice is for YOUR VISITORS to cut off' or remove the affiliate code from the end of your link and just go directly to the parent company bypassing your rightful commissions.
The parent company still gets the same number of sales, but your commissions go untracked. Fortunately, there is an easy way to overcome this.



As a network marketing distributor and affiliate, there are a number of reasons why having your own domain name is a must:

1) When you have your own domain name, the address of your web site will be of the form http://www.EasyToRememberName.com.
On the other hand, if your website is just a company replicated website on one of the free servers, the address of your web site will be something like http://affiliatesite.com/cgi-bin/12...eyOffYou.htm

2) The only way to make money online is to build up credibility with your prospects and customers.
Having your own domain name is the first step in doing that.

3) When you have your domain name, you can have multiple email aliases of the form alias@yourcompany.com.
This allows you to assign different email aliases to different functions, all of them pointing to your actual email address.

4) Many search engines give a lot of emphasis to the home page of a particular domain.
So, other factors remaining the same, a home page of a domain will often rank higher for a particular keyword than any other page. When you submit your long, obvious affiliate link, your index.html page is the home page of your site, but not of that domain. In these search engines, your site will find it very difficult to make it to the top 20 or top 30, let alone the top 10 for some of the really competitive keywords. Just think of the amount of traffic that you will lose if this happens.

5) Many major search engines are now refusing to spider the web sites that contain obvious affiliate coding.

6) You will also find it very difficult to get an affiliate link listed in a major directory like Yahoo!

If you do not currently have a domain name to promote your affiliate program, are you convinced that you need one right now?
The small fee that you pay per year for your own domain name is peanuts compared to the benefits that you get. You can check out the availability of domain names and register new domains at (google new domain names and take your choice).


You can now also customize the Title, Keywords and Description tags for your domain. This gives you advanced search engine optimization for higher search engine rankings. Almost all affiliate links are NOT indexed by any of the major search engines. NameStick Domains are.

AUTHOR: Mikefilsaime - (U.S.A.)

The fact of the matter is simple. The customer went to our site and filled out a form to get access to our course we gave away for free with a trial of our monthly newsletter. They pay the shipping and handling. After 30 days, we automatically re bill and send a new issue every month.

Anyone can review the site at the7figuresecrets.com

It is clearly sates, no fine print, on the sales page AND the order form.

We even state how to cancel at ANYTIME by simply contacting us or calling 631-615-4597

He states he has called several times. If you call the number you see it gives you all the info he needs. This is the number on the site and he was not calling it.

It is simply a recurring billing like you would have for the NY Times. He did not notify the department to cancel and if he was charged, of course we are happy to refund 100% of his funds.

The buyer claims he has come across many that are unhappy. He shows no proof because it does not exists. The search engines prove this. In fact, we have over 100,000 paid customers and this is THE only item on file with this website. You would think if this was the norm for us, there would be MANY more like this.

The buyer claims I "went into his account and took money out of it." This is not the case as we do not have access to his account. He voluntarily gave his account information on a form that clearly sates he will be automatically billed every 30 days.

It is clear I am not a thief. Actually, I have one of the best reputation on the Internet for providing value and I have many many success stories from people that have used my product.

I want to thank this site for allowing me to respond.

The buyer can email me at mikefilsaime at gmail dot com if he needs any further help. We would never do anything to hurt anyone. We only wish to help people get what they want out of life.
