Deal of the day websites...good idea or just plain marketing scam?
In Ireland we have recently become inundated with these deal of the day sites. Pigsback, Groupon, Living Social....the list goes on. You know how it works, you log on, find a deal that's allegedly worth say €150 but you only pay say €40 for the same service. The Consumer assoc of Irl however is saying that 33% of all consumers of these sites are lodging complaints and they are opening a full-on investigation. The complaints mostly surround the actual discount & the availability of appointments or bookings etc. Any thoughts or experiences yourselves?
Don't know about those others but groupon has been good to me.
My experience so far has been the deal sites for merchandise offered at a large discount. It appears that some are closeout items, which is OK. But I do not even visit these sites anymore when the last two 'deals' ordered from two different sites were sent from the same address noted as a 'return center'. Upon examination, the items identified as new were apparently actually refurbished or returned and the last item, sunglasses, had wear, dirt and smudged lenses.

I've heard a lot of different answers when I ask how much traffic per day is "good" traffic for a website. I always count unique hits, not page views.There is a big difference between unique hits and page view hits. Some seem to think 500 or more unique hits a day is good, while others...

We know that we've been badly hit by the algo update a. In order to reach at some constructive conclusion, I would like to study which all websites got in thought the changes. Since many of the sites got low rated and the traffic is still constant, some other sites might have definitely found some...
