Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Last year, I was contacted through the contact page on my website by someone unknown asking for $2K from me to boost my "WOT" ranking. At a time I didn't know what that was, so I declined rudely, seemed like a scam to me since the email was hotmail, anyone could have opened it. Then, after few months, I noticed incredible drop in my website visitors (40-50%). At that time I didn't know the reason. Then I had friends telling me they're being warned by Facebook when they click to play my games on the Facebook. I got interested to see what is going on. Recently, I was told by a more technical people that I should join WOT website and present my case asking them what's going on. So I did it on 18th May 2012 and while the conversation is altered by them and I'm banned without possibility to reply, I managed to save it:

Their altered version without my last message with the proof image of how they harass people on the Facebook with the false info about my website:

First they delete that page and banned me, now it seems to be working but it's altered in a way I already explained previously. I do not have ability to login on their website and reply. It is also not allowed on their website to have multiple accounts. If I register in a different username they will use that against me in a manipulative way.

I claim that everything started when I declined to pay the money. They now say, as you can see on their forum that their members rated my website as scam, phishing website, hacking and security risk, vulnerable privacy website, not child safe website and untrustworthy because I wrote an article about Minecraft. That just doesn't make any sense. Why would they spread disinformation and lies about my website because of my Minecraft article in which I'm stating that Minecraft is a hype and that the game is just boring and ridiculous. And this is something their administrators are claiming. How can administrators and people who run WOT know that my bad ratings and lies and disinformation their service is spreading about my website to the users of their WOT browser plugin and entire Facebook community is because of my article about Minecraft.

To me it seems that they are manipulating again, trying to move attention toward some article I wrote long time ago, instead of focusing on the real problem and that is the money I was asked to pay so that my WOT rank would be boosted. Unfortunately, this was not asked by them directly, but by someone with an email on hotmail and this can't be linked to them in any way.

My website is in total RED on their plugin. Even users who use Google see red circle and see warning about my website not being trustworthy, being a scam, phishing, not child safe, hacking and malware website. I make games, mostly Flash and PC games. Anyone who dislike me or my games can go to WOT and down-vote my website at any time and they can lie about it and obviously many people did lie. They're driving visitors away from my website toward website they rate well.

Same Problem with WOT Web of Trust

AUTHOR: Judy Wei - ()

We had the same problem and there is no way to fix your reputation unless there is some service to hire high level users to comment favorably about you.

Moderators or high level users take joy in making false claims and marking websites as harmful. If you try to comment and refute their claims it only brings more negative comments.
