The Ads by Google look out of place right next to the Reviewed.com Ethics and Independence Pledge banner.

Thanks Brett and everyone. I think this is an exciting step for the company, as we grow our brand and more and more people see the quality and standardized reviews we publish. And we have WebmasterWorld.com to thank for everything I know about online marketing!

I'm confused. This is a review aggregator, or? I'm very familiar with camcorderinfo.com but the products I searched for on reviewed.com only had links to other websites.?

Robinl yes and no if you go to the ethics page the header is not correct I think it was a testing header and since then it has changed goes to this index page

/corporate/index2.php not sure you want that .

No, it should say /corporate... that's the corporate site, or are you talking about something else?

robin ok here is the url I am at but my question is how do I get back to the site [reviewed.com...] as all the links go to other pages even the logo will not go to the main page.
[reviewed.com...]

If this is the corporate site then I would open the Ethics link in a new window to keep people from getting lost.

I see now what is going on you have the ethics link on this page
[reviewed.com...] going to the wrong url.

[reviewed.com...]

it should be going to this url [reviewed.com...]

that will fix the issue.

Thanks bhartzer. To me, both the ethics links point to the right URLs... maybe hard refresh?

I deleted cookies closed all browsers reopend browser refreshed still seeing the same thing here is how I am getting to the page.
From the front page of reviewd.com I am clicking on the link to the right

"Reviewed.com Testing Labs" this is going to the above link in the TEXT on this page there is an ethics link NOT in the footer the footer link is correct it is the link in the text of the page.

This "ethics" link in the "text or body" of the page is incorrect.
