One of the way I noticed companies such as DELL get traffic into their website is to false advertisements on items for sale. Many people say it was a mistake, accident or items for sale was available but sold out, to me it’s a scam, and the company should be held liable. Take DELL for example today on techbargains.com website “Dell Inspiron 15 Intel Core i3-2350M 2.3GHz 15.6in Laptop (4GB/500B/Win8) $299” listed but as when users click on the link to buy, it doesn’t work, page doesn’t exist, it has a link to “We’re sorry, but we are unable to process your request. The product or offer you are attempting to locate is no longer available.”
To me it’s a scam and most likely from DELL not necessary techbargains however there might be some insider from DELL gave some money to techbargains to do this, but posting false sale item, item that doesn’t exist or sold out which is not true item was never at that price or exist, when the user click on the link from website such as techbargains, it take them to dell with a link on dell website to a shopping website so it lure you to buy other items on DELL website. I think it’s bad practice, it’s nasty scheme from techbargains and DELL, even if you report this, they will not take it down pretend too many email to answer. Shame on you DELL and techbargains trying to lure people. Stay away from these kind of websites people, fatwallet might be better!
