More work less sleep - what's new for 2014

TestProductReview and the upcoming new year

New year new luck they say. For 2014 we intend to spend more time on our consumer tests and product reviews and hopefully get more new readers. 
It is the end of a pretty much controversial year and there is much to be desired from our small consumer blog. I am not quite sure in which direction things will go but we will definitely put more efforts into our everyday work and this is a promise to be kept.
This time I am not going to throw some big words about the future but we will try to make our way through the challenges that we face with hard work and consistency. We all know there is not many proven recipes for success but there are many known roads to be followed. 

For the new year 2014 most of all we would wish you to be healthy and to stay positive. You are always welcome to share your thoughts with us not only as consumers but in any aspect. Be good and hope to see you soon.

Merry Christmas to all of our TestProductReview.com readers

It's Christmas time, enjoy, have fun and be happy

It is Christmas time and almost the end of another long and full of emotions year. Most of time time we talk about products, price and goods but at least in one day of the year we have to focus on the most important thing that keep us going every day - and that is you. On this day we want to wish you to feel good and enjoy yourselves without any of the products that we review because as you all know these are not the most important things in life.
We wish you a very nice and cheerful Christmas and be good.

Feedreader.com issue creating duplicate content of your site and blog


Wy Feedreader.com creates duplciate posts and Google kicks your site out of the search results?


More Google search updates were noticed recently and yet more problems occur for many webmasters all over the world. A missive problem has been spotted with one of the most popular feed readers - feedreader.com. It seems like Google is taking all RSS burned articles in feedreader.com as the primary source of original content and kicks out of the search the actual sites where the content was first submitted and published.



What is actually happening?

Actually we made a further research on this and this issue was first reported to Google more than a year ago and believe it or not the most popular search engine did nothing about that.

The problem continues with lack of support from the feedreader.com side who seem to ignore all feed removal requests. But that could be considered quite normal as they are making huge money on someone else's efforts. It is also quite annoying that Google support seems to be ignoring this as well even though this has been reported from hundreds of webmasters and site owners across the world.

Actually what happens as a consequence is that your website content is taken as duplicate to the one that shows up in your feedburner.com feed and your pages are kicked way back in the search results.

Our blog testproductreview.com also suffered from that and most of our top performing articles with original content either disappeared from Google search results or dropped significantly so traffic was no longer generated from these.





So, is there a way to block feedreader.com from showing your own content and restore your site's ranking?

Well, we are still not quite sure if there is complete resolution to this but we promise to get to the bottom of this and update you with all the info we have. We recently reported this to Google but it seems very hard to make any of the useless Google vendors do something about the issue with feedreader.com.

Currently we are using something like a workaround which is not completely resolving the case with the duplicate content. What we do for our blog is to insert a simple code which basically redirects the visitors form all iframe feed readers directly to the original article. The code that you can insert somewhere between the opening <head>  and the closing </head> tag is <script language='javascript' type='text/javascript'>

if (window!= top) top.location.href = location.href;

</script>.

As I said this is not a complete resolution as search engines like Google will still index the duplicate feedreader.com pages but we will do our best to find a solution which will be helpful for all webmasters affected by this copyright and search engine indexing problem.

Until then we wish you good luck and don't give up on your blogs.

TestProductReview.com going for Alexa top 100,000

Our newly developed consumer blog is heading to the Alexa top 100,000 websites in the world

TestProductReview.com

New year new luck or at least they say so. For the new year 2014 we are expanding our project and our consumer blog TestProductReview.com is heading for positions between the most popular sites in the world and a place within Alexa's top 100,000 ranked sites in the world.

How are we going to achieve that?
We were asked for quality and that is what we are going to deliver to our readers. We will provide better reviews with more information related to the highlighted product, we will involve consumers into providing more indepth feedback and help other consumers get all the information they need. We will also research upon customer's requests and work together with the biggest manufacturers and retailers to achieve the best balance between customer satisfaction and business success.

What's next?
What is coming next is many days of hard work. Being devoted to a certain goal takes up a lot of time and effort but we are ready for the challenge. 

What's new?
For the new year we will work with better media sources and we will also improve the quality of the reviews we serve. We know 'more reviews with better quality' may sound way too optimistic but that is how we intend to work in future so get used to this. We are still going to stress on consumer electronics but we are also going to add couple more categories. Of course computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, TVs, cameras and other popular gadgets will be in the focus in most of our reviews. 
In last few months we also got a little behind with our car reviews but that is also about to change and cars will be reviewed more often than before. 

Enjoy the ride
Despite all the sceptical voices that we heard since the launch of this project we are still up and still running and let me tell you something - there is no bigger motivation than that. We would love to hear your point of view as well so please share with us whatever you have in mind.
