The name Kelly Scott has been doing the rounds, largely associated with a site called Home Internet Careers. Like many similar sites, this one suggests that you can earn a lot of money quickly and without a lot effort. As you can probably imagine, the site is a scam site.
The name Kelly Scott is interesting. It sounds like the name belongs to the person who owns the site, but that would mean that the site is actually being honest. There are so many sites like this out there that use a name like Kelly Scott to make people feel comfortable and to make it sound like the site is actually endorsed by a real person.
This is rarely ever the case.
Instead, the names tend to be pulled out of thin air and the stories and images associated with that person aren’t actually real. For example, a really common practice is to use stock images or actors to represent the person. If you look hard enough, you will often find a disclaimer saying this somewhere on the site, but if that disclaimer is there, it is certainly never easy to find.
Overall, the sites go to great lengths to make you think that Kelly Scott (or whichever name they are using) is a real person, is really promoting the site and actually made money from it. However, all of that is just clever manipulation.
After all, if they can get you to trust in the site, they are part way towards actually getting you to buy something.
I’ve actually reviewed Home Internet Careers in the past, although there have been some changes since that point. Notably, site seems to have moved away from some of its approaches that were blatant copies of other sites, such as using these claims (which you see over and over again):
Likewise, any and all mention to Kelly Scott has been completely removed. Instead, there is no name associated with the website. But, despite the superficial changes to the website, the site itself is still largely the same.
In particular, the site (and what you purchase) is still focused on the process of link posting. For example, it claims that you end up posting ads for ‘quality’ products, like this one:
That doesn’t actually look like a quality site, at all. That should be a pretty big indication about the link posting approach as a whole and its potential for making money. In general, you are posting links to sites like that on other sites. To do this successfully, you have to find sites to put those links on and you also have to make sure those links stay up there.
The problem is that most sites will delete any links that look like spam – and just about anything you post from this type of site is likely to look like spam.
That really is the thing.
Sites like Home Internet Careers want you to think that the links you post are in high demand, which would (potentially) make posting links a profitable way to earn money. Honestly though, there simply isn’t that much demand for links at all. Most sites don’t pay for links anymore because they will actually get penalized in their rankings because it is pretty obvious to search engines that they are trying to cheat the system.
The outcome of this is that you might earn something like $1 per link, and even then, that applies only to links that sites don’t get rid of afterwards. That means you may well end up spending an hour getting multiple links up just to find that only one of those links ‘sticks’.
So, in the long-term, it is a particularly poor approach to making money. You are doing a lot of work for little income. Additionally, your potential to earn money is going to decrease over time. After all, let’s face it, finding sites to place your links on is going to get harder and harder as you go along.
As you can probably tell, I really don’t like sites like this and I particularly hate link posting. The sites make all sorts of wonderful claims, but they simply don’t have the power to actually live up to those claims.
It’s easy to believe these claims, especially if you really want them to be real. After all the site does even offer a guarantee, which suggests that you are taking no risk at all.
However, just like everything else, this is just carefully chosen words. No matter what the site claims, there is no guarantee that you will make money and you have no way of knowing whether or not the site will actually give you money back or not.
After all, this type of site is a flash-in-the-pan and will tend not to stay online very long. Because of this, there is a good chance that the site might not even be around when you try to get your money back.
