Examples Of Advertorial Graft At Chinese Tech Sites

1A) IMP3Net: [Original Road] narrow MiniOne Tablet frame design more stylish

Materialist dialectics tells us, “There is no two identical leaves, love Tucao tablet user said,” is wrong, the world there are two identical flat. “In recent years, the rapid development of flat panel industry, the tide under the domestic flat-panel become a force to be reckoned with in their efforts, originally more expensive tablet PCs become approachable in price, and the increasingly strong performance. Highly integrated industrial development model also exposes the domestic flat-panel homogenization of serious problems, how to break the pattern of homogenization make differentiated products, have to consider living in the flat-panel manufacturers spared from war.

1B) ZOL: “Thin” out of place! The original channel mini one the world’s narrowest border

They didn’t even bother to rewrite the Marketing copy!

Can anyone tell me what’s of interest there to users? What’s newsworthy there? It’s raw pimpage from a Marketing Department!

2A) 1Pad: Welfare, from Taipower A80H the beautiful reward

2B) ZOL: The new ultra-thin 8-inch flat-panel Taipower the A80H dual-core image of the beautiful reward

What is that? Wanking fodder? Don’t tell me China is different. That’s just embarrassing to anyone with an IQ.

In both cases the pieces appear mixed in with actual news in the list of contents. There’s nothing to clearly point out these are paid placements (you really have to suss out what they mean by the “source” in many cases — and that’s only after you’ve clicked to read!). Nothing that would allow a reader to bypass these blatant ads that appear as legit content.

These are just two recent examples of advertorial corruption in Chinese tech blogs. Just how beholden are they to running pimpage like that? How can they think that no one will see the blatant duplication? And they have the nerve to blame their readers for AnTuTu score fraud? Purge your own sites of fraud first!

    Mike,

    That is one reason why the huge social media sites are so popular in China. The media, ranging from newspapers and magazines to blogs, is almost entirely useless for reliable information. If you’re an advertiser, you send articles to go under the publication’s name, unedited.

    American tech media used to tend that way, too. I remember a feature edition of ComputerWorld covering the first ever CES held in Tokyo with reviews of new products released at the show. Problem was, the show was cancelled at the last moment and every article was a lightly edited press release. John Dvorak’s personal picks were especially disgusting.

      Hahahahaha. I don’t recall that one. But I do know there was lots of corruption in computer magazines in the 1980s that eventually came to light.
