Audit Results

There are quite a few reasons I rated so low, yet the main reason would have to be due to the fact that they are not much of a review site as they infer to be. Along with the fact they are clearly an affiliate site, they also do not provide an “About Us” implying they don’t want you to know what they are about, showing they are not a very credible site.

One plus with is that they do have a big selection of treadmills that are out on the market right now, thirty-three to be exact, including some of the most popular brands such as NordicTrack, ProForm and Horizon. While the number of brands and models they rate is a positive for the site, their reviews themselves are quite negative.

Their reviews give you no real insight or opinions on the different treadmills, rather they simply only tell you the features the treadmill has to offer. While this may be helpful, yet you can find this information anywhere, including on their manufacture site. When going to review sites you are looking for some actual reviews of the treadmills and maybe even a little criticism if needed so that you are aware of what you are getting yourself into before making your purchase; this site will not be able to do that for you.

The fact they lack any negative criticism or actual opinions is a dead giveaway they are an affiliate site as their reviews are only for selling purposes, not to actually inform and benefit the user. All of their outbound links take you to either the manufactures site or Amazon, which is another dead giveaway. In many cases, nothing is wrong with being an affiliate site, yet in this case it seems to be an unhelpful source as far as treadmill reviews.

I also noticed that a few of their models had no actual links directing you to where you can purchase the treadmills, which is odd for an affiliate site. While others had broken links that only lead you to a 404 error page.

Another skeptical issue with is the fact they lack any about us on their site, or author to the reviews themselves. This shows that there is no authoritative figure supplying you with these reviews, could be anyone, which leads me to believe they are not very trusting and lose any credibility.

Overall does not have much going for them beyond the fact they do supply a great amount of brands and models they rate, as well as they do give you a bit of information on those treadmills. Yet if you are in the market for a treadmill and are looking for a reliable treadmill review site to supply you with actual reviews and opinions on different treadmills, this is not the site for you!
