Dan Anton Has the Worst Pole Vault Series on DVD That I have Ever Used


I used to be a resident of Tacoma, WA and I saw a sign for Dan Anton's Pole Vaulting camp. I had always wanted to learn this sport and become really good at it. I didn't think it would take me very long to master this silly sport so I figured I'd see what it was all about.  

Well, unfortunately I had to quickly move to the east coast and all I had written down was a website for Mr. Anton. I eventually got around to ordering his DVD series on how to Pole Vault like a Champion. The Only thing I can say about this order is it was the worst purchase I have ever made in my life....and that's saying something.


The material was not only dated but the videos were grainy and often times impossible to see what was being shown. When I confronted Dan Anton about this he didn't even take a step back. [continued below]....

..... He came right at me and said that maybe I wasn't meant to Vault.  Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! What kind of teacher says that sort of thing?

I asked for a refund to which he refused. This man is a SCAM and a FRAUD. He is a blatant liar and should not be allowed to operate in the USA. 


I'm hoping this report is seen by someone researching Dan Anton before making the foolish purchase that I made.  My hopes and dreams at being able to pole vault like an olymic athlete have been flushed down the toilet thanks to this man.

Dan Anton not giving refund

AUTHOR: Terry - ()

I've been trying to receive a refund still on this series with no luck!


Dan Anton seems to just ignore my complaints about his flawed teaching methods in the entire course.


I don't understand the mentioning of the search engine optimization issues mentioned above. Is this for the same person?  Someone said this is his picture


Pretty sure that isn't him but I'm not 100% sure either. I'm just a victim of buyer beware. Caveat Emptor!


Now, $297.00 for a product doesn't sound like a lot of money, but in this it's a pretty large purchase.  The product came with a 30 day unlimited no questions ask guarantee.  I have requested a refund through paypal but don't really expect anything from them as they never stand behind their customers. 


 In my case he has not stuck to his word on teaching what he has offered instead he said go to Facebook. The original report of Dan Anton scam was certainly right for this person

Dan Anton is an unscrupulous sociopath who will take advantage of any person or institution as it fits his criminal needs. This report on a “Pole Vault Instructor” Dan Anton is an excellent example of this sociopathy.  

Look at who filed this report.  Reported By: Robert J. Atlian Sr., Esq.

Would an Atilan Sr., Esq. be trying to learn pole vaulting? (Sr. implies age.) No. Pole vaulting is a young person’s sport. 

Esq. is used by attorneys.  Google search Robert J. Atlian Sr., Esq. 

Does he exist? No.

Dial the number for the “fake” Dan Anton, 704-654-0635.  It goes to a Tabatha at this time. 

The area code 704 is not a Tacoma Washington area code. 

Follow the website link noted in the second report for Dan Anton “Pole Vault Instructor” report.

It is a google blog that was created in 5 minutes. It is not the kind of marketing website that a professional pole vaulting teacher would have.  

Click on the “site activity” link.

 You will see that this fake blog was created by Dan Anton on the same date that the report was filed. Oct 22, 2015, 4:30 PM with the last entry being at Oct 22, 2015, 5:08 PM  

If you google “Dan Anton Pole Vaulter” you will see that no such a person has ever existed.

This is especially odd in light of the fact that the pole-vaulting “Dan Anton” competed in the Olympics as noted on the fake blog/website page of the pole-vaulting “Dan Anton”.   

Now you need to go here.

This is the real Dan Anton that created the site on the “Pole Vaulting Instructor” Dan Anton.

Notice the KEYWORDING wording in this report on the pole-vaulting “Dan Anton”.

In search engine optimizing terms, it is designed to throw the searcher for a legitimate report on the “real” Dan Anton off.  This report hey filed uses key words like “vault”, “back with links”, “Backlinks” and “Wikipedia”. 

The use of these key words is to throw off search engines from returning the “real” and precisely documented RipOff report of the “real” Dan Anton.  These key words were all used in the “real” report on Dan Anton. 

Since Ripoff Report Houdini does not work to remove reports on Dan Anton, he created, or authorized the creation of this fake report to clog up the internet and attempt to obfuscate the real report on Dan Anton and his nefarious methods. 

In actuality, this is an example of Ripoff Report Houdini Dan Anton and Matt Anton still sell on the internet to internet neophytes. It is pathetic, crude, ineffective and can be figured out, their methods, by a high school student.

That they sell a pathetic product like this to people is indicative of their complete and unrelenting criminal sociopathy.

Proven SEO Advice To Improve Your Website

There are expert consultants that make their livings assisting website owners with search engine optimization. Does this mean you can't learn a few tricks to help you do your own SEO? Of course not! Just a little effort invested in optimizing your website's search engine performance can pay off big with higher rankings and increased traffic. Keep reading for ideas to optimize your search engine performance.

Try to get your site mentioned on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Plus and popular blogs. Social media can be a great search engine optimization tool as networks of people can make a website very popular, very quickly. Every time somebody links to your site on a social media site, the chances of your website showing up on the first page of search engine results increase.

Avoid using keywords that are of no relevance to your website or product. When you do, web crawler bots may mistake your website as spam and blacklist your site from the search results. On the other hand, be sure to include all relevant keywords on your home page as this is the page you should want your customers to see first.

If you choose to include Flash on your website, only use one Flash animation. Too much of this can take away from the focus of your description and information transfer, and also does not benefit your search engine optimization. One Flash animation will suffice to create a contemporary aura to your website.

Design your website from the start with search optimization in mind. If you include too much Flash or other products that search engines do not use, you are not going to be very high up on their radar. Keep that in mind when you begin your website, and you will have a much easier time in the future.

Do not use trademarked terms and product names in your meta tags unless you have an arrangement to do so with the owners of the trademark. Trademark owners are fiercely protective of their valuable property online. They will not appreciate it if you use their terms to drive up your website's search index ranking.

For effective search engine optimization try and use a single URL to concentrate all your stories, articles or blog posts within the same category. This is an excellent way to get your search results near the top as it will cover a broader range of topics which will get your page more views.

Make sure you include unique content in your articles. Search engines will give your website higher priority for your keyword if multiple websites are sending their viewers to your blog to find out more information about a given topic. You will begin to look like the authority in your field.

If you are serious about utilizing SEO techniques, be patient. You will probably not see immediate results; it could take months for you to realize the benefits of your work. This is particularly true if your company is relatively small and if you have not been conducting business online for very long.

To get the most out of SEO, you must remember to always provide links of the highest quality. Links pointing to your site should be well-placed and you should place a lot of them. This will get you to the top quickly. Submitting high quality articles containing link exchanges that are selective will give your site a boost.

If your site includes video or sound files as part of the content, provide a text transcript. Not only do text transcripts increase accessibility for human users, they provide a way for the content in those files to be indexed by the search engine spiders. The search engine can only rank content it can view, and it can't watch that video.

If you've just put your website online and want it indexed by Google, taking the traditional route and using their submission form isn't the quickest way to get your site visited. Instead, have a website that ranks highly and is updated often to link to your site. Google spiders these types of sites daily or even hourly, so you will pop up on their search engine results very quickly!

Don't be afraid to link out to other websites! Not only does it make them more likely to link back to you, but other sites will see that you're not stingy and will be more likely to link to you without you even asking. It also helps your page rank to link to quality websites.

For blogs that cover a niche topic, guest-blogging for other sites is a free and highly effective way to increase traffic to both sites through link backs. This also improves both sites' overall link integrity and can make a distinct difference in the amount of relevancy that search engines assign to both sites.

Do not use duplicate keywords when trying to implement SEO. For example, having Playstation and Sony Playstation both as tags is useless since the more descriptive one will make the other one of no use. The other reason is so that bots do not flag your site as spam.

One of the easiest and yet most important ways to improve your search engine rankings is to provide fresh content. While posting as often as possible is obviously better, being consistent is key. Strive to provide fresh content at least three times a week and build up from there once you have established your consistency.

Be aware of the density of the keywords on every page of your website, especially your home page. Many people make the mistake of keyword jamming, trying to fit as many keywords onto a page as possible. It can actually lower your page rankings. Instead focus on getting three to five percent of the total amount of your copy on any given page as keywords. This will help your rankings, make your pages more readable and get more of your site's individual pages ranked by the search engines.

Keep these SEO tips in mind when you build pages for your website. There is nothing wrong with doing all you can to get your website in front of more visitors, and some effective search engine optimization can accomplish that goal in a big way. And there are always fresh tricks to learn in the SEO process.


Can we allow Dan Anton to run rampant with his pole vaulting DVD series that doesn't even work. I want back my money and no amount of SEO that is done can repair his tarnished reputation.

Dan Anton is a Scam pole vaulter

AUTHOR: Ernesto Gomez - (USA)

This piece of crap Dan Anton doesn't know jack about the proper form in pole vaulting. I bought his video series and all it did was hurt my back.

Maybe there is not a direct link to his videos and how I hurt my back but Dan Anton knows beyond all doubt that his product is a complete piece of crap.


First allow me to outline all the major problems in this course. 

Dan's video series provides no real basis for how to properly start the position you need to begin. I looked everywhere for it in all the DVDs but not a single one had this information.  NO WONDER I HURT MY BACK!!!!

One of the stupid DVDs was actually cracked and I have no idea if that will help at all! Answer your phone and maybe I can get a new DVD that actually works?


WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO SCAM ME?  YOU SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR CRIMINAL ACTIVITY!  Where did you learn how to pole vault?  I could not find a single link on the internet about your credentials so I think you are brazenly and openly providing a scam of a service here.
