Have you noticed today’s version of slimy old websites like Ask.com? Like “Minq” and other nasty things. Every company paying these creeps money to display ads on their horrible site should stop immediately.
Here’s one of their slimy Facebook bait ads.
Here’s an “article” “page” on their craptastic website — after 6 minutes of waiting for the vast amount of ads, videos, etc. to load (yes, I dumped Cox for ATT 10 days ago — that ad’s sure going to help, right?) How about more stuff I *already own*?
But it’s better on mobile!!!
No — it isn’t.
And there’s more than one of them.
It’s these people.
So if you pay ANY of these people associated with “Gateway Media,” it is all 100% wasted money. If you think you sell one product or attract one customer because of this, I can assure you, that’s not the case. Good ‘ol Minq served me up big helpings of the college textbooks I assign, the cable provider I cancelled last week, and one of my own clients’ websites.
These websites hit all of these points (25 Reasons I’ll Leave Your Website in 10 Seconds) and then some!
But maybe there is a silver lining to this cloud. These websites are SO TOXIC that real life looks fantastic.
