Fake Blog Income Reports: Do not fall for them

Many bloggers are using fake income reports on their blogs to gain more visitors. They are scamming the readers further by asking them to join online courses so that they can also earn that much amount. This post explains in detail regarding how to spot fake income reports.

I had seen that posts like "My Income report", "My maximum earnings from a single click", "How I make $1000 daily with Adsense" are becoming quite popular these days. No doubt, if these posts have real statistics, it can motivate the readers. But what about the fake income reports by a blogger just to project him as a professional blogger. If you are too innocent to understand the reason behind the fake income reports let me narrate a short story here. There was a businessman who was seeing loss in his every new venture. No doubt, the losses affected his personality also and he became quite irritating and disturbed. Once he was sitting in his cabin when he saw a young guy coming to his door. He thought to show him that he is a busy man and thus started to talk on his phone. He kept talking for 10 minutes and kept boasting about his business. Once he cut the call, he asked the young guy about the purpose of his visit. The young told him that he was here to repair the defective telephone in his room. Hope you got the point behind the fake income reports. This post provides detailed information about the fake income reports, their uses and how to stay away from such reports.

Why People Make Fake Income reports

There can be a number of reasons behind making such reports including:
1)Empty vessels make much noise: We all have heard this proverb and it certainly applies to almost every aspect of our life. Even blogging is not an exception and you will find a lot of self-proclaimed gurus who claim to be making a living with their online income. The reality is that in order to make a "Worthy Income report", you will have to wait for at least six months or even a year. In fact, the time required to establish an authority blog may compel you to leave blogging.
2)It gives attention (Backlinks): What if I made a post on my blog saying that I make $10000 from different online income sources. If the post is backed up by sufficient fake screenshots, a lot of budding bloggers will share the post or even make a post regarding this achievement. This is what the makes people present fake income reports on their blogs.
How do they make fake income reports
There are simple tools available for this purpose. Even if you are not a Photoshop expert, you can use various tools to make fake adsense screenshots, fake affiliate checks and even fake traffic stats.

How to recognize fake income reports

1)Just go through the content: I was checking a blog recently and found that the owner claimed to make $100 a day with Adsense. When I checked the posts on the blog, I could not control laughing. The posts were mainly rewritten articles of about 200-300 words. Again, half of the posts were meant for selling affiliate products. Needless to say, I doubt if the blog is able to even complete $100 (minimum threshold amount) every month.
2)Check the stats on your own: One of the benefits of internet is that you can check almost everything about a blog or website with the help of different free tools available. You can check the age of the website, Alexa rank, estimated traffic, indexed pages and much more. Relating the stats to earnings is also not a hard task if you have some experience about the different earning programs.

I hope this post helped you to understand the methods to recognize the fake income reports. Just remember that blogging is just like any other business, you need to put your time, effort and money before reaping the benefits from it. If somebody told you that you can make money instantly from blogging, it is certainly a bad advice.
