I found an interesting page regarding Ariel Baleli. Interestingly, from the page link it appears as thought it was meant for a lock smith. But the content of the page appears to be advertising a company called localwms.com. They appear to be advertising their services to help companies counter negative reviews by posting their own positive blog posts and press releases which make the company look better.
Here is a quote from the page:
This [countering negative reviews] can be done through press releases, blog posts and articles that portray your company or website in a positive light.
Would you want to do business with someone that does that?
I’ve taken a screen shot of the page just in case it gets removed.
Over the last two days and continuing right now, this site has basically been under a spam attack. As of right now there are over 1600 spam posts submitted to this site in the last 2 days or so. Normally, if i get one spam post a week, that would be a lot.
Is Ariel Baleli or someone else from Everlast Construction behind this? I don’t know, although I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if he is. I had several blogs over the years, this one being the newest one. And this is the ONLY blog I’ve had that has ever been flooded with spam like this.
Fortunately for me this doesn’t matter since i have effective filters in place that have caught all the spam and it doesn’t cause me any problems at all. I can only hope if Everlast is behind this that they at least spent a lot of money to do it, since it would be a waste of money.
