Write App Reviews Review [2022] – Scam or Legit Way To Make Money?

Write App Reviews Review Banner Update

Thanks for stopping by to read my review of Write App Reviews.

With bills piling up, debt to pay, and the cost of everything going up, it's not easy. 

Write App Reviews claims to be a possible solution, but is it legit?

In this review, I'll explain what Write App Reviews is, how it works, and what it can do for you. I'll take you inside the member's area, reveal what's inside, and whether it's a scam.

What is Write App Reviews?


Write App Review is a program that shows you how to make money by downloading and reviewing apps. Their tagline is, “make money testing apps on your phone or tablet.”

It's a simple three-step process, they claim:

  • Step 1 – Choose an app to test.
  • Step 2 – Write about it.
  • Step 3 – Make money.

If you've seen the App Coiner program, Write App Review is similar.

Write App Reviews is also from the same person, or group of people, who created Social Sale Rep and Paying Social Media Jobs.

Many people make money online by writing app reviews (and product reviews in general), so the process is legit. You can earn a living testing and reviewing just about any product.

But it's not as easy as Write App Reviews suggests.

They claim it's a simple step-by-step process, which is partially true. But it must be said that the details within each step are what matter.

I'm not sure Write App Review is detailed enough to teach you how to do it correctly, but that's what this review is all about.

There are a lot of programs that claim they'll show you how to make money online but turn out to be scams with misleading information. 

So, I'm going to take you inside so you'll know precisely what Write App Review is, how it works, and if it's legit. 

Is Write App Reviews Legit?


You might think Write App Reviews is a scam, and you're not alone. They are promising a relatively simple way to make money and when you compare that to the challenges of your regular job, it probably sounds too good to be true.

To be fair, Write App Reviews doesn't seem like a fake guru scheme that promises mansions and Lamborghinis. 

However, that doesn't mean Write App Reviews is a good product.

What I can say is that there is value here. Write App Review is not a scam that will take your money and run. Instead, it will give you some training and introduce you to the world of writing app reviews.

But there are some red flags I should point out…

Red Flag #1 – As Simple as 1-2-3


Let's clear something up. Making money with WriteAppReviews.com is not as simple as 1, 2, 3 as they claim.

There seems to be some confusion about what WriteAppReviews is. And for a good reason. 

If we go back to the three-step process on their homepage, step three is “Make Money.”

That sounds great, but how do you make money? 

It's reasonable to think that Write App Reviews will pay you to review apps. That's what it sounds like, whether deliberately or not. But that's not what Write App Reviews is.

It's NOT a job. Write App Review is NOT hiring you and paying you to review apps. 

The way you make money is through advertising and also by promoting the apps you review. If a reader buys the app, you earn a commission (this is called affiliate marketing). 

Therefore, to make money, your reviews MUST be read by someone. And that's where it gets tricky.

Let me explain… 

Write App Reviews claims to provide you with a curated list of apps to review. There's some confusion about what this list actually is (maybe the confusion is just mine), but I'll get explain that further below.

For now, I'll just stick to this list of 30 apps (the first 10 shown below). 

Write App Reviews Paid to Review Database
Source: Write App Reviews App Database

If there are 5,000 members (just an example) who each test and review the same 30 apps, how do you get people to read your review over someone else's?

You're competing with 5,000 Write App Review members, not to mention thousands of others (who are not Write App Review members) who are writing reviews.

Every reviewer is trying to get noticed, and every reviewer hopes to make money with their review.

So, what makes your review better than theirs? And how do you make yours stand out?  

When people search for reviews online for the product you've tested, is it your review that shows up or someone else's? 

Again, you can make money by writing reviews. That's true. I do it, and I have friends who do it…

but it's not as easy as Write App Reviews would have you believe. 

The process is “simple”, but simple is not the same as “easy”. So, saying it's as simple as 1, 2, 3, is a bit misleading in my opinion, and a red flag.

If you've signed up for Write App Reviews and found it to be more challenging than what you were looking for, you can also make some extra money with online surveys. Sites like Survey Junkie and Inbox Dollars are simple and free to join.

You won't get rich doing surveys of course, but they can be a great way to get started online.

If a bigger income is what you're looking for, an online business might be what you want.

You may have children at home or health difficulties keeping you from working.

If that’s the case and a full-time income online is what you want, knowing how and where to get started is what you need in order to get what you want.

Red Flag #2 – Who Owns Write App Reviews?


If I had to point out another red flag, it's that the owner(s) of Write App Reviews is anonymous. 

That's their choice, and it's okay. I know several people making money online anonymously while still being honest and helpful. So, it's not a reason to call it a scam. 

And I'll say it for the record, Write App Review is legit.  

But it does raise a red flag because you can't know that Write App Reviews works if you don't know it worked for the person teaching it. 

And you can't know it worked for the person teaching it if you don't know who that person is. 

As someone who has written hundreds of reviews (and earns an income from it), I hope I can bring valuable insight to what's being taught here. Below I'll continue with my honest review and opinion, not only of what Write App Reviews really is, but how it works…

How Does Write App Reviews Work?


At its core, Write App Review is a program that helps you make money by reviewing apps. It does this with a training component and a free app review website component

I'll go over both in depth below, but first I'll explain the actual process.

Write App Reviews breaks this down into 3 steps:

  • Step 1: Choose an app to test.
  • Step 2: Write about it.
  • Step 3: Make money.

To provide greater clarity, I'll break those down further: 

  • Step 1: Build your app review website (this is provided by Write App Review)
  • Step 2(a): Test apps
  • Step 2(b): Write reviews
  • Step 2(c): Generate Online Traffic
  • Step 3: Get paid

Step 1: Build Your App Review Website


Writing App Reviews gives you your own “done-for-you” website where you can publish your reviews and make money from ad revenue, email sign-ups, and downloads.

Each app review site starts out identical, and is a simple point-and-click build. You don't need to know how to code or set up your domain, hosting, etc. 

What you will need to do though, is set up accounts with affiliate marketplaces, Clickbank and JVZoo. They are both free to join and give you access to hundreds of products you can recommend and earn affiliate commissions from.

They will also provide you with an affiliate ID that you'll add to your site.

Step 2(a): Test Apps


Now that you've got your app review website set up, you can log into your member's area and choose apps from the Write App Review database to test.

Of course, you can also choose apps that are not in the database. 

You can check out the Apple and Android app stores and search for popular apps. Or test an app that interests you. 

Consider certain criteria during these tests. For example, is the user interface easy to use? Are there any glitches? Does the app do what the promotion claims? Are you quickly bored with the app? 

Step 2(b): Write Your App Review


Now that you have specific knowledge of the app, you begin writing your review. 

Log into your website and choose “new post” from the menu on the left-hand side. This will open a blank page where you can write your review based on the criteria established during your test. 

The training inside Write App Review provides tips and advice on how to do this effectively. 

It will also show you how to write your review and apply search engine optimization (SEO) strategies so that your review can be found when people search for it. 

I'm going to talk a lot more about this below when I get into what the training provides. 

Step 2(c): Generate Traffic


I don't want to give a false impression that all of this is easy. Yes, there are three steps until you get paid but this step is an “invisible” step because in some ways out of your control.

Some of it is in your control, though, and you'll learn about in the training. But, even when you do everything right, there is no guarantee people will find your review. 

That's because there may be hundreds of others who are also doing everything right. So it's important to choose which apps you review carefully. Reviewing an app that has already been reviewed hundreds of times might not be the best option. 

With persistence, though, your website will eventually begin generating traffic and you will get paid. 

Step 3: Get Paid


The main way you'll get paid is through affiliate marketing. 

Every banner ad, email list, and app download button on your app review website will automatically contain your Clickbank ID or JVZoo ID. When someone makes a purchase or downloads something from your website, you earn an affiliate commission. 

You can also earn money from ads on your website. 

How all of this comes together is explained in Write App Review's training. 

Write App Reviews Training


Write App Reviews is not an in-depth program. It will not give you extensive training in things like keyword research, search engine optimization, social media marketing, etc. 

And maybe it's not supposed to. This is a relatively inexpensive program and isn't necessarily created to compete with similar programs that are much more expensive.

If I'm critical of Write App Reviews, please keep that in mind.

If you're not sure what keyword research, search engine optimization, etc. are, that's okay. That's what the program is supposed to teach you, and you will get an introduction to these skills.

They are also essential elements to becoming a successful app reviewer. 

Write App Review gives you an overview of these topics in a blog-post-like format. 

That's not enough in my opinion to really teach you everything you need to make money reviewing apps. Each of these skills take time to develop, and there are entire courses built around each one. 

What you get from Write App Reviews is the 30,000-foot view of the process, but it stumbles on detail, in my opinion.

And the details are critical if you want people to read your reviews.

So, when you first log in, you'll see a couple of options…

The first button takes you to YOUR review site (more on that later), and the second button takes you to the Get Paid to Review Database.

Write App Reviews Members Area
Member Dashboard

If it's your first time in the members' area, you'll want to scroll down the page until you see a box that says “Click The Quick Link Button to Access All The Reviews, Training, and Resources.”

That button (and message) is at the bottom of the page and takes you to this page…

Write App Reviews Training Page
Training Page

You can also find this page from the My Review Site dropdown in the top menu. 

As you can see in the screenshot above, there are a few options (and I'm going to go through each in greater detail). 

  • Beginner Training
  • Intermediate Training
  • Advanced Training
  • Make Money With Your Website
  • Bonus Training
  • Getting Help (not shown in the screenshot above)

Within each section, you'll find a variety of modules, courses, and lessons. 

Beginner Training Overview


The beginner's training is very basic. It's a one-page blog post about the app reviewing process and tips for international reviewers. You'll find some links to various VPN providers.

This part of the course won't take more than a few minutes if you're an international reviewer checking out each VPN. If you're in the US, it shouldn't take longer than a minute.

Intermediate Training Overview


This is where Write App Reviews training actually begins (the beginner training is pointless, in my opinion, and could have been included as a module here). 

As the training is currently set up, there are four modules in this section:

  • Making Money with Write App Reviews
  • Selecting and Evaluating Products
  • How to Create Reviews 
  • Making Your Reviews Awesome

In this section, Write App Reviews goes a little more in-depth about how the program works and how you'll make money. 

You'll get some basics, like how to log into the system. Some advanced topics are also discussed but there's one paragraph I had some difficulty with. It says…

“Once you have published several reviews, the Write App Reviews platform works to bring you readers. We'll ensure that your reviews can be found in search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.” 

Because of this one paragraph alone, I almost wrote that Write App Reviews is a scam and framed my review around that. Search engines are highly advanced complex algorithms that few people understand. 

Therefore, I think it's incorrect to suggest everything you need to get your reviews found in search engines is taken care of.

Even search algorithm creators can't make that guarantee, nor can they predict with accuracy how it will rank articles and websites for a particular search term. That's the point of search algorithms. To do what humans can't. 

There are billions of searches every day and billions of web pages. Humans can't crawl through all that content and rank it for consumption.  

I will come back to this point further below because it's very important. 

For now, back to the training…

The selecting products course talks about app categories, product testing, evaluation tips, how to take notes, etc. Helpful if you're completely new to this, but nothing revolutionary. 

In the course creation modules, some of the topics covered are how to understand your audience, illustrating with examples, not giving too much away, and making a recommendation. 

You will also get some WordPress training, showing you how to edit your posts, add images, ratings, etc. Unfortunately, there are no videos. All of the training is text-based.

The Intermediate training concludes with tips and advice on making your reviews stand out. Examples are being direct with your writing, using short sentences, and creating clickable headlines. 

There is also some basic review structure discussed and how to use keywords. 

Advanced Training Overview


I mentioned earlier that Write App Reviews will not provide extensive training in areas like search engine optimization and social media marketing. 

The key to that statement is the word extensive

You will get a basic overview of these topics, but they are not necessarily in-depth. There are entire courses that cost hundreds (even thousands) of dollars that teach these subjects. In addition, some experts run their own agencies and ONLY focus on these areas of digital marketing.

So it's not fair to expect in-depth training for the cost of Write App Reviews ($27). 

Write App Reviews will introduce you to these topics though.

Write App Reviews Advanced Training
Advanced Training

The modules included in the advanced training are:

  • Taking Your Income to the Next Level
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • More Online Promotion Opportunities
  • Offline Promotion Opportunities

You are introduced to ad revenue and email marketing in the next level income module. There is no real instruction on how to do these things, just that Write App Reviews will do it automatically for you. 

This is a red flag, in my opinion.

I'm not saying Write App Reviews will rip you off, but many scams that offer these automatic or done-for-you systems skim money off the top by inserting their own affiliate links into your ad placements and emails. 

They also build their own email lists on your efforts because they control the autoresponder system that captures contacts and sends emails. 

And they deliberately avoid showing you how to do these things yourself so that you're dependent on their system and unable to diagnose what's really happening under the surface. 

In the social media marketing module, Write App Reviews goes over the major social media platforms and provides screenshots showing how to post your reviews to your profile or a group. 

It's all very basic, and there's nothing here that you can't find for free with a simple search. 

You are introduced to some automation software, but again, you can find all of this in much greater detail just by using Google or YouTube. 

Write App Reviews SEO Training


Next up is the search engine optimization (SEO) module. 

A community or mentorship platform would clarify what is being taught if Write App Reviews had one. Therefore, I may have misinterpreted the training.

But I'll share what I think…

The training discusses keywords. A keyword is a search term and Netflix's Squid Game is used as an example. 

Rather than using the generic keyword (or search term) “Squid Game”, a recommended alternative is “Squid Game Netflix.” 

That makes sense. You have a better chance of ranking for the longer keyword. 

But Write App Review does not discuss keyword “intent”

The problem is that someone searching for “Squid Game Netflix” is not searching for an article about Squid Game. They are searching specifically for the show on Netflix. 

So, Write App Review's advice here would lead to hours researching and writing an article that no one clicks on because it's not what they are searching for. 

Multiply that bad advice over several dozen reviews that don't generate traffic can waste months. 

Therefore, search engine optimization training must include accurate, clear, and current information. Write App Reviews does not, in my opinion.

This module also gives bad advice about backlinks. Backlinks are links from other websites to yours, and getting one from a respected website improves your search ranking. 

When you acquire them improperly from spammy or harmful websites, they can damage your rankings irreparably. So much so that you will have no option but to start over from scratch. 

Write App Reviews recommends buying cheap backlinks on Fiverr, which violates Google's guidelines.

It's actually one of the worst things you can do to your website. In fact, some people purchase these Fiverr link packages to knock their competitors out of search engine results.  

So, in my opinion, the Write App Reviews training is not just incomplete or lacking detail (which is okay based on the cost). But it's also harmful and could waste

Write App Reviews Bonus Training


Once you complete the advanced training, you'll have access to a bonus training module, More Ways to Get Paid to Write. 

Write App Reviews Bonus Training
Bonus Training

Some of the lessons in this module I recognize from their other programs, like Social Sale Rep. I'm not sure if they are word-for-word carryovers, but they essentially cover the same topics. 

The training up to this point has been about writing reviews (of course, it's in the name), but this module covers additional topics like article writing, resume writing, search engine evaluation, etc. 

While there is some good information here, as in some of the other modules, there's nothing you can't find online for free.

Also, like some other modules, there are points I disagree with. 

For example, it says in one of the lessons that you can easily make $300 – $500 for a 1000-word article. That's simply not true. 

It's “possible” to make $300 – $500 for a 1000-word article, but it's not easy.

The freelance writing marketplace is competitive, and most writers get paid in the range of $0.04 – $0.10 per word. That's $40 – $100 per 1000-word article, and those are pretty good writers.

The average I pay for writers is in the $0.06 per word ballpark.  

Some content agencies push articles out for as low as $0.01 – $0.02 per word.  

Writers who get paid $0.30 – $0.50 per word (or $300 – $500 per 100 words) are not only skilled, they are established with proven portfolios. In addition, they are often specialists in a particular area, writing about expert topics related to health, engineering, finance, law, etc.

And, their authorship brings authority to the platform they are being published on.  

So, while it's true that you can make significant money as a writer, making $300+ per article is not easy. And it's not something you will learn from Write App Reviews.  

Beyond that, there are quite a few topics covered here. And as far as the number of topics, Write App Reviews does a good job, and I give them credit. They've gone wide with their training coverage. But compared to some other programs, they haven't gone very deep.  

You can use what you learn here as a roadmap to explore areas of digital marketing and freelance work, but you'll need additional resources, courses, etc., to become proficient. 

Your App Review Website


Now that we've gone over the training, let's turn back to the member's area. As mentioned earlier, there are two main areas. Your website and the review database

Write App Reviews provides you with a free app review website hosted on a freshappreviews.com subdomain (presumably owned by Write App Reviews).

All member websites look like this…

FreshAppReviews Subdomain Member Website
Write App Review Member Review Website

They are built using WordPress and, as much as Fresh App Reviews will allow, are customizable. They also come pre-loaded with an email address opt-in form and roughly 30 reviews. 

In most cases (unless you're exclusively going after social media traffic), you should delete these reviews because they hurt your website more than they help. 

Reviews and articles on your site must be unique for search engines

When a search engine crawls multiple copies of the same review or article (duplicate content), it will rarely (if ever) show more than one.  

And although not always the case, search engines often look at duplicate content as an attempt to manipulate or deceive the algorithm. There are also copyright and ownership issues. 

So, Google states that in these situations, they may “make appropriate adjustments in the indexing and ranking of the sites involved”.

That means excessive duplicate content on your site could get you de-indexed, and you'll lose all of your current and future rankings. Your site becomes worthless. 

Some sites have recovered from these penalties, but it's better to delete the duplicate content from the beginning and avoid the problem entirely.

Although, that might not work in this case because all of this duplicate content has been on Fresh App Reviews' subdomain sites for years (which is where your app review website is hosted), so the domain itself could already have some indexing issues.

The proper way to do it is to build your own niche website (not necessarily specific to apps) on your own domain and create completely original content.

For example, do a search of any product review and you will find unique websites on their own domain. Rarely if ever will you find cookie-cutter sites with copied content.

I know everyone wants a simple copy-paste or done-for-you type scheme to make money online, but they don't exist. 

There are templates, systems, and workflows that will assist you and make the process easier. There are also experts who will help you and tools like website builders that eliminate the need to be tech savvy. 

But the real work must be done by you. No one can do it for you.

It's like going to a gym and working out. No one can work out for you. Only the person who puts in the time and effort receives the rewards. 

So, while the Write App Reviews website they give you is a good starting point, you will have to build it out yourself with quality reviews and content that brings real value to people.

If you were looking for something easier and quicker, as I mentioned earlier, you can also earn money from survey sites like surveyjunkie.com and ​​​​inboxdollars.com.

They don't pay as much as writing your own original reviews but can be a stepping-stone to something more serious like an online business.

You may be at home because of difficulties with your health or children to look after. 

If that’s the case and a full-time income online is what you want, knowing how and where to get started is what you need in order to get what you want.

The Get Paid to Review Database


Even though I was critical about how Write App Reviews explained keyword research in the advanced training, I give them credit for including it. 

That's because it's critical to know how to find your own keywords. Through effective keyword research, you can find apps that have fewer competitors in the search engines.  

Unfortunately, the review database does not provide you with those apps. It provides you with the most popular ones.   

There's actually some confusion here. Unless I'm wrong (and correct me if you've also gone through the program), but in some parts of the program, Write App Reviews says the database is a curated list of apps you can review. 

However, when you go to the database, it says these are the top 30 places where you can get paid for your reviews. 

Write App Reviews App Database
Source: Write App Reviews

Either way, I agree with what Write App Reviews says on this page (screenshot above). 

You're more likely to get paid by these apps for doing surveys, testing apps, etc., than you are to review these apps yourself. 

They are all well-known apps and companies. Unless you have an existing social media following (or high-authority website), it would be difficult to rank a review for any of them if you were to publish a review. 

You need to find apps that are less well-known and are therefore easier to rank for, which is why keyword research is important.

It should also be noted that you don't need Write App Reviews to join any of these sites.  

How Do You Get Paid to Review Apps?


I touched on this earlier, but I'll go more in-depth here so you know exactly how you're getting paid for your app review.

There are a few ways you can get paid to review apps. The most common way (and the way Write App Reviews teaches) is through affiliate marketing

You earn money through affiliate marketing when you promote products and services through an affiliate link, sometimes referred to as a referral link.

This is a unique link that identifies you.

When someone reads your review and makes a purchase through your affiliate (or referral) link, you earn a commission on that sale (at no extra cost to the buyer). 

What's important to understand is that the company (which every company or app you are reviewing) is NOT paying you to write a review. Instead, they are paying you for each sale.

Therefore, you can write a hundred reviews, and if no one reads them and no one clicks on your affiliate links to make a purchase, you don't get paid. 

This is different from testing apps, websites, software, etc. (called user testing or beta testing).

You are paid to use the app in an app testing scenario and to report bugs, user experience, etc. 

These tests don't provide stable income because the opportunities are limited. 

For example, you might beta test an app for a company once. Maybe six months down the road, they will request your services again. Maybe.

If each test pays $15, you may make $30 from that company. 

On the other hand, if you are an affiliate for that company and earning a commission, you may only make $5 per sale. But your earnings are only limited by the number of sales you generate. So if you're sending a ton of traffic through your affiliate link and generating 5 sales per day (just as an example), that's $25. 

If you can maintain that over an entire year, you'll earn over $9,000 from that one review. That's much more than the $30 you made from beta testing. 

Of course, these are hypothetical numbers, so they don't mean a lot. But they do illustrate that what Write App Reviews teaches has tremendous earning potential. 

For example, setting up your own website and writing can literally change your life, as described in this video…

There's something else that's extremely important to understand here. In the beta testing situation, you get paid once per test. 

In the affiliate marketing scenario, you are being paid repeatedly for each review. 

In other words, you're generating true passive income. You review a product once, and it generates income, sometimes for years to come.

The key, of course, is that people read your reviews. 

And for them to read your reviews, they need to find them. Much the same way you found this review. 

There is another way you can get paid to write reviews, and that's to become a freelance writer. Site owners like myself and others often hire freelancers to test and review products. You can find freelance writing jobs like these on various platforms. 

In some cases, a review can be in the form of a survey. You're still testing and reviewing products, but your opinions are recorded as specific answers to specific questions.

Sites like Survey Junkie and Inbox Dollars will pay for you for these types of product surveys, as well as for other things.

But if a full-time income is what you want, an online business would be a more logical option. 

You may be at home because of difficulties with your health or children to look after. Or maybe you're just tired of the job you have.

If that’s the case and a full-time income online is what you want, knowing how and where to get started is what you need in order to get what you want.

Write App Reviews Cost


Write App Reviews is $27 plus local taxes if applicable. 

Write App Reviews Cost

If you have a Write App Reviews coupon code, the price will be discounted accordingly.

Upsells, Downsells, and Sidesells


Having paid your twenty-seven dollars, you would think you were done. But not yet. You'll find plenty of upsells, downsells, and side-sells in their sales funnel (all extra costs you were probably not expecting). 

  • First, there's a $97 VIP Club Express Pass, which claims to pay you 10X more. How it does that, I don't know.

    If you decline, there's a down-sell; $67 for twelve months of access to the VIP membership.
  • The side-sells are next. Write App Reviews is from the same creators as Paying Social Media Jobs and Paid Online Writing Jobs.

    As a new Write App Reviews member, you can buy both for $57. If you turn this one down, you'll be offered one or the other for $37.
  • Next is a “review pack” (not sure if that's what they are calling it). For $37, they will pre-load your website with 50 “top quality” reviews.

You do not want these reviews on your website. While it would be great to instantly add many reviews to your new site, you can be sure these are not unique reviews. They are the same ones they sell to everyone, and I already went over Google's position on duplicate content. 

Adding these is more likely to cause harm to your site than they are to help it. 

Write App Reviews Refund Policy


Writing App Reviews is sold on a third-party platform called Clickbank, and they have a 60-day money-back guarantee.  

To start the refund process, visit Clickbank support and start a Live Chat. Have your order number ready (it will be on the receipt they emailed you).

Write App Reviews Refund Clickbank Order Support

It may or may not be a straightforward return. The vendor (in this case, Write App Reviews) will be informed of your refund request and may offer additional benefits or discounts to keep you as a customer. At this point, you can choose to accept their offer or continue with the refund.

(Why I Wanted to Say) Write App Reviews Is a Scam


Earlier, I mentioned a paragraph from the first module of the intermediate training. It was a claim by Write App Reviews that they ensure your reviews can be found in search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. 

Because of this claim, I considered calling it a scam because I think it's a false promise. I decided not to call it a scam though, because again, there is some valuable information here. 

But under no circumstances can Write App Reviews ensure your reviews are found in search engines. At least not in the way they imply.  

There's some clever wordsmithing going on here, so let me clear it up.

They will help your reviews get “indexed” by search engines, meaning they can be found with a very specific search query. 

But a searcher would have to already know about your review so that they could search the exact title (in quotations) and include your website's name.

But that's not how people search for reviews. 

You might search for your own review that way just to check that it's there, but someone simply searching “(app) review” is not guaranteed to find it. There may be hundreds of websites ranked higher than yours.

Having your review “indexed” by search engines is not the same thing as having your review “ranked”.

No one, not even the best SEOs (search engine optimizers), can guarantee you a top-ranked position (where you need to be if you want your reviews to be found).

In fact, if you were a business and someone made that promise, you would kick them out the door immediately because one of two things would be true…

  1. They are lying to you, or…
  2. They have no idea what they are talking about. 

In either case, you would not hire them.

No one can guarantee search engine rankings. There are at least a dozen (if not hundreds) of talented website owners targeting the first page of Google, Bing, and Yahoo for any valuable search term. 

Therefore, it is not an automatic process, and no apps or software can do it for you.

If there were, the company that created it would own all of the top positions for every valuable search term ever typed into a search box.

Search engines don't work like that. 

So, let's think about this for a moment…

Write App Reviews likely has thousands of members. If one hundred decide to review the same product, there is no possible way they can guarantee each one of them will have their review seen in search engines.  

For example, there are only ten results on the first page of Google. On occasion, a few less and in some rare instances, a few more. But most of the time, only ten websites make the first page. 

A study of billions of search results shows that roughly 88 percent of all clicks go to websites on the first page (with 55 percent going to the top three). 

In other words, very few people go beyond the first page, and even fewer go beyond the second page. 

So, if Write App Reviews has guaranteed 100 people (or more) their reviews will be seen, it has to be a lie or a misstatement. The math doesn't add up.

If they had any control over what gets ranked (and they don't), they could, at best, make that guarantee for ten of their members. Maybe twenty if you include the second page of search results where very few people go.

But it's much worse than that…

Many of the apps they recommend you review are also reviewed by high authority sites with teams of writers and million-dollar budgets. There is no possible way to outrank those sites in Google, Bing, or Yahoo. 

The training is perpetually optimistic in this way. Every lesson I went through seemed to claim each step was “easy or automatic.” But, unfortunately, that's completely false. 

Some things are easy, but some are very hard. 

Having done this for years, I'm confident just about anyone can do it. But make no mistake, it takes time and effort. There are challenges to overcome.  

The other reason I wanted to call Write App Reviews a scam is that I think they misrepresent themselves as a “job” when that's not what they are. I'll talk more about that in the next section…

Write App Reviews: Reviews and Complaints


The reviews for Write App Reviews are not great.  

Most of the reviews and complaints are about the unexpected upsells or that you should not have to pay to get hired for a job. 

I agree on both points. And I think the root of the problem for both is that Write App Reviews promotes itself as a job, even though it's not.  

Read the answers provided for a few of their Frequently Asked Questions.

Write App Reviews Frequently Asked Questions
Source: Write App Reviews

They claim members make $25 – $35 per hour. This is untrue. 

Write App Reviews is not an hourly job. If members make money, it's through a website like UserTesting, Pinecone Research, or Userlytics that Write App Reviews directs you to, but has nothing to do with.  

Maybe some members end up making decent money, but not directly with Write App Reviews.

Another way members make money is from affiliate commissions that are difficult to quantify in hourly terms, if not impossible. 

Next, they claim payments are made weekly via check, direct deposit, or Payoneer. 

Again, this is false. A company (or app) that Write App Reviews recommends you use might pay their members that way, but not all of them. And Write App Reviews does not pay you that way. Write App Reviews does not pay you at all.  

Finally, they say that new apps are added each week, as though it's your job to simply pick a new app from the list, review it, and collect your weekly pay. In my opinion, this also implies it's a job. 

As a result of misleading people into thinking it's a job (intentionally or not), it's understandable why there are few positive reviews and the complaints are what they are.

What I Like About Write App Reviews


  • Writing reviews and earning affiliate commissions is a great way to make a living (although I can't say Write App Reviews is the best way to learn how to do it).
  • Provides a decent overview of the process and covers a lot of topics.
  • Has high earning potential (…if done correctly).
  • Affordable one-time payment.
  • 60-day refund policy through Clickbank.

What I Don't Like


  • All modules are in text format only. There are no videos or audio downloads. 
  • Lacks in-depth SEO training. In fact, some of the SEO advice is harmful, in my opinion, like buying backlinks from Fiverr and using duplicate content.
  • No community or member's forum.
  • Misrepresents itself as a job platform (possibly unintentionally).

Where Do You Go From Here?


I know you want to make money from home. I've been there before too, and I understand. 

You may have a stack of bills to pay and debt causing you to fall behind. It's not easy, especially with today's rising prices. 

I wish I could tell you that Write App Reviews was the answer. That they would hire you and pay you weekly as their website implies. But that's not what Write App Reviews is. 

It's a decent introduction to writing reviews and earning affiliate commissions, but having gone through the program, I can't say there's anything in it you can't find online for free.

Having said that, I'm not saying you should disregard the program. It's great that they packaged this information in one place and ordered it for easy learning. It could therefore be a valuable roadmap to get you started.  

However, if you join Write App Reviews and find it's not what you were looking for, there are other ways to make money online.

You might be a student in school or a single parent at home. You may have health challenges that make regular work difficult, or maybe you just hate your job and you’re desperate for a way out.

If that's the case, an online business is what you want. 

With all the scams and schemes out there though, knowing how and where to get started the right way is what you need in order to get what you want.

Now, I'm going to give you a free step by step beginner's guide to making money online and you can get it by Clicking Here

But if you're just looking for a simple way to make some extra spending money, online survey and get-paid-to sites are good way to get started.

Sites like Survey Junkie will pay you for your opinion and Inbox Dollars offers rewards for doing things like watching videos, visiting websites and searching the web.
