Joel Comm or Joel Con?

Joel CommJoel Comm (author of the bestselling "Adsense Code") is troubling me. I recently read his post about the new "paid-to-surf" program, Towards the end of this post is a link, containing the text "" This gives the definite impression that the link goes directly to However, the actual URL is "," which redirects the user to, presumably using Joel's affiliate code.

Now, it's not a big deal but it causes me to question his integrity. What do you think?

I'm also troubled by the MFA ("made for AdSense") templates that he sells ... but that's another story!

If Joel Comm is in fact deceiving others while using his aggressive marketing tactics, this is wrong.

Other people have posted similar threads, but they get chewed up by the other sites pitching Joel Comm's products.

I agree that this is becoming a growing problem and truth will eventually prevail.

If you look carefully into Joel Comm's tactics, you find he's purposefully driving up his site with companies that he either owns (and doesn't reveal they're his companies) or with companies that are somehow doing business with him.
