Whether you start through Google or another means you will find that there are literally thousands of sites offering music downloads. How are you to decide between all those choices?
I start by looking for sites that offer information and reviews of the various sites. I might search for terms like "music download reviews" or "music download site reviews".
What comes up next is where the problem starts. Both terms bring up paid results for review sites that promote these scams.
Why would they do that? Plain and simple - money! Most the sites charging for free file sharing software pay affiliates 75% of every sale.
First off look for lines like:
#1 rated site as seen on CNN, NBC, CNET, AOL, etc.
The sites vary the number of files they promote from 10 million up to 15 billion.
Most have small print at the bottom of the site telling you not to upload or download copyrighted content. Yeah right I wonder how many files that leaves for you to download.
Several have FAQ pages that state you are actually paying for their support of the free file sharing software. Funny how they don't mention that on either the home page or order page.
In fact when you go to join they just ask for your email address. What comes next is an email for your free music....Not quite. The next email you receive will sell you a lifetime membership for anywhere from $30-$50. Hmm, what happened to free?
If you see the common signs above then move on. If file sharing is your goal then just go out to download.com and grab a free program. Don't get scammed!
