Angry Website Trickery

So I was sitting here smoking my KM and then a memory drifted into my mind...
Hey when I opened the box that this came in it was in a KM box and on that KM box was a URL so I I must go look and see this with all the talks on how to spell it I had never tried to see if they had a site but here is there box with it on it. So Score!!! but upon entering this little tidbit of data in to the browser what do we find it has been redirected some other Hookah Site. and I know every one needs to make a buck but to me this is wrong! Wrong i Tell you Just Wrong so then what do I do I bust open Google and it suggest to me that it is .net ok try that oh now we are looking better but the English site is all but broken. and the Arabic side is as of yet unreadable to me but pretty pictures are there, but still is underwhelming. and now this sad panda is going to hold off this hunt till I feel happy again..

Well I believe khalil maamoon sells their rigs to other companies to sell. If that makes sense. I don't believe they are there own private distributor.

I know exactly what you mean SIAG. A person who shall remain nameless bought quite a few popular hookah products names as domain names and it redirects you to his dropship website. Shady deal, but not unexpected

Dunkel, there is nothing wrong with that. I pay for some shisha just by the ads that get clicked on by people who go to Moolz.com (a typo of moola.com). Its easy money & teaches people to learn how to spell :P'

But as far as the website goes, good luck. I have yet to find it too.

I think I know what you are talking about. I saw that being done by several vendors and have to admit that I thought it was something I should be doing to get more traffic to my site. I used a different spelling of KM that I thought was right. I thought it may help things for my business. KM has made changes to their website but they still haven't made it a priority. I don't think they care enough to do anything about this, or it's just that they are in another country. Sorry if it rubs you guys the wrong way, I can cancel it if you like.

This is a pretty common online business practice these days...I see nothing wrong with it. He's not advertising that he "IS" KM, just using a domain name to forward to his site...

haha john I didnt notice u had a redirect on khalilmaamoun.com. IMO its just smart business practice, in an economy like this, you gotta do what you can to get the most hits possible >.> Its not lying or decieving in any way....if anyone believes when they get redirected to you that you are the Khalil Mamoon company then they deserve to get swindled. Also..in the end...when they type in khalilmaamoun.com, what are they looking for? KMs. What will they find? KMs. Happy customer. Everyone wins.

Oh I more upset that KM would print this address on there boxes and then let it go I get the whole score one with the redirects and that to me is less bothersome.
