"Great if you want to damage a well run web site."
-buys facebooks fans for their site
-dropped by facebook
-fraudulent reviews on mywot website
- could be children reviewing your site
Good UK sites got reviewed by an European who clearly had very little understanding of UK web sites and labeled each site with the lowest possible rating even though these sites all had secure SSL certificates and were PCI Compliant, had over 25000 positive feedback from customers had also been trading for years with no problems.
This should be policed or dropped, it is a disaster and does nothing to promote smaller based web sites. It seems as soon as one person gives a poor review all the other reviewers just click the same score so suddenly a great web site can have their great reputation ruined forever. It should be left up to the likes of Goggle and other search engines to review where a web site appears in search results.Warning to all Webmasters and SEO Company's - WOT - (Web of Trust).

This Company from Helsinki claims to offer:-
"Would you like to know which websites you can trust?"
What they don't tell you is anyone, even children, can end up rating a web site. Anyone can play at being GOD to devastate well run legitimate web sites. When you sign up with WOT they encourage you to rate more sites so that you increase your activity score which gives you an increased weighting on your reviewing. We had four well established web sites based in the UK, that where all PCI compliant and each site had its own SSL certificate. Along came a reviewer based in Italy and suddenly all our sites where branded "WARNING THIS SITE HAS A POOR REPUTATION BASED ON USER RATINGS". To make matters even worse, as one user brands your web site as POOR along comes all his chums and they also click the agree box, so now your are really in a difficult situation.
