While e-publishing is making remarkable changes to the literary world, fraudulent popularity boosting is becoming a serious threat to the integrity of the practice.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Digital Marketer, the industry-leading provider of online marketing strategy information, has published a recent blog post on the advent of “sock-puppet” e-book reviews, or fake reviews from the author themselves or someone working on their behalf.
Loposer says that “the problem is much bigger than you might think. It’s not just a handful of [fake reviews]...”
While e-publishing is making remarkable changes to the literary world (as evidenced by Digital Marketer’s new Number One Book System), fraudulent popularity boosting is becoming a serious threat to the integrity of the practice, Loposer says in the article.
While some bigger-named e-book authors are being tagged with the stigma of "sock-puppetry," amateur and beginner writers are likely the ones who will suffer and be looked down upon by the traditional print publishers, Loposer said.
