Public Service Announcement - Entrecard is a Scam

I found a website that claimed to help provide more traffic to a person's website. For free.

Unfortunately, like most free services, it was simply a scam. Instead of sending websurfers to your website, it gets free ad space by requiring you to put your "electronic business card" on your website. It uses that space instead to advertise their own service. They all work like a ponzi scheme - the more you drop your "electronic business card" into the comments of other people's websites and blogs, the more points you earn, which allow you to access more traffic.

For more detailed blogposts on this, check these blogs:

If you have a website or a blog, I would encourage you to spread the word on this little scam. Thank you!
