The title “Much Ado About Migraines” caught my attention and let me to the site articlebiz.com. The top of the site says “Authors: Maximum article exposure. Publishers: Reprintable article content.” On the surface, this seems like a great idea. Articles that can be used on your web site at no charge. You get material for your site, and the author gets exposure.
But, and there IS a but… Nobody seems to much care if the articles are accurate. “Much Ado About Migraines” was written by Hamza Davis, and the first paragraph shows that Davis knows little about Migraines.
“Migraine is another term for severe headache… An individual usually gets an aura or waring such as a blind spot and a sudden flash of li8ght before a bout of a migraine…”
Migraine is NOT another term for severe headache. There are lots of headaches that can be severe but aren’t Migraines, some Migraines happen without a headache, and to be diagnosed with Migraine takes symptoms other than headache.
There’s a short paragraph about Hamza at the end of the article. It says, “Hamza is committed to promoting health and wellness.” What a shame Hamza isn’t dedicated to accuracy. A quick search of the site brings to mind the old phrase, “Jack of all trades, master of none,” as you see that Hamza has also writtien about pole dancing, impotence, vericose veins, and more.
Oh, and did I forget to mention that each article has a link at the bottom of it? A link to Hamza’s web site — cyber medicine store, which is covered with ads and is obviously about making $$. Now, there’s nothing wrong with making $$, but to make them by throwing up short, inaccurate articles to lure people to a web site full of ads is just… just… what’s the word I want? Opportunistic? Mercenary? Predatory? Oh, hell. It’s just crappy.
So, when you come across sites and articles like these, take them for what they are — 500-word commercials for someone’s web site full of ads.
