Is TalentDesire legit? No, TalentDesire is not legit. It’s just a site with a bunch of ads with no actual earning system. They just want you to spend more time on the site to earn more from those ads- and hope you click them as well.
Just a couple of days ago, I made a review on Hiresine and I went through a couple of searches to find out if there are more similar sites. Well, guess what? Talent Desire is the exact same sort of scam as Hiresine! I just don’t get how these sites still seem to fit in so well with the rest of the search results. I’ll explain all about it in this Talent Desire review.
Speaking of Talent Desire and Hiresine, either both of these sites have the same people running them. Or one of them copied the idea later on (Talent Desire is relatively new, so it’s possible). Because when you look at both sites closely, they both place ads on Google Search on keywords like- ‘Paid writing Jobs’. Also, both of them have partnered with Google Adsense. Which, by the way, places ads on their sites that relate to their content.
When one places ads that offer the same services as that of their own website- They’re bound to lose traffic. It’s no rocket-science logic here. Personally, I run Adsense on this site too, but this is a blog with content. If there are ads of other blogs with similar content, I don’t ‘lose traffic’ as I don’t provide any other services apart content here. That is, of course, content that actually helps!
Talentdesire: Tricky Ads and Adsense
If you’ve been to their site, it would usually be through the Ads on Google search results. The ones that they place on their own of course. These ads show up on the first page of the results. If they really had authority and were legitimate as their site seems, then TalentDesire could have made use of SEO.
So why not use SEO? Simple, there is no system that the algorithm can go through. If they decided to spend on SEO instead of ads, they’d have to spend way more to pull it off. So they decided the easier way around- search result ads. TalentDesire is just a site with piles of useless content. They hope you spend more time on it so they can earn more through the ads on the sides. Speaking of ads, they placed ads on search results, and when you go to their site, what do you see? Ads of other writing sites!
They spend money on ads and yet allow ads of other sites with similar writing services on their own website. Any legitimate site offering services like these would NOT do this. It can potentially damage their own users. However, since TalentDesire here is just a site with bloated up junk, all they expect you to do is to click the ads on their site and make a quick buck.
Links and Forms that all end up in loops
Every link that you click on TalentDesire (Not the ads… stop clicking those), it just links to another page of the site with obnoxious ads all over. Since they want you to spend more and more time finding that ‘Application Form’, it gets annoying trying to find it. In fact, most of the links on the content that you think might lead you to it just always seems to lead somewhere else with more ads.
To make you spend your time, they even took some effort to put in a ‘Calculate Your Earnings’ calculator. Sure, earnings that one can only dream of! After a long long while, I managed to find that application form.
Later on, after submitting the form (with useless details and an email id made just to test it), it said this:
‘We will be in touch soon’? I’ve been waiting for a while and I haven’t even received a confirmation email to the address I gave. And I wouldn’t expect to get one anyway.
TalentDesire Review: So is it legit?
Absolutely not. It’s a scam! Though there doesn’t seem to be any form of cybercrime- no identity theft- occurring here, this module is NOT a good practice of making money. TalentDesire just wishes people to spend more time on its worthless bloated up content (of no use)- So that they can earn more. Ads on it are the only reason it still runs. There is no ‘System’ for writers here.
Other details about TalentDesire
When there is an ‘About’ page on a company’s website, the main aim is to build trust among users. To show that the company stands out there somewhere. However, on TalentDesire’s ‘About’ page- not a single person’s name has been mentioned. No names, no addresses. Just information about their ‘Services’ which isn’t true either.
However, after some research with the help of sites that provide analysis on other sites- I found out that TalentDesire is about a year and a half old. It is hosted on Godaddy and it entirely runs on the open-source WordPress. What’s funny is that even Hiresine runs on Godaddy and is hosted on WordPress and provides the same sort of bogus content with ads all over the pages.
They even an SSL certificate. Apart from security, this helps them in ranking better on Google.
If you’re looking for web security, Sucuri might just be great for you.
To match, both of these sites- TalentDesire and Hiresine- pay for the same keywords for Google search results. This is why I mentioned earlier- both of them might be run by the same person or people.
Other reviews on TalentDesire
It is interesting how a bloated up website of nothing is actually popular enough to make people search for its reviews. The reviews which support the site- claiming it is legit don’t seem legit themselves. Here is one such review I found on BlogSpot. The review, I have to admit, does get a person’s hopes high by the time you finish.
However, when I scrolled down to the comment section, there was just one comment that said, ‘i registered in talent desire, but i didn’t get response.’ Yes, buddy, I didn’t get one too, I wouldn’t expect it either if I were you.
If there was anything more I could review on the site, I would. But there is nothing else in it. With that, I would like to end my review here. Thank you for your time:) If you’re really interested in writing for the fun of it, then keep reading, I might have something that could help!
To the beginners in Writing
Well, all of that is just my perception of TalentDesire – My review of Talent Desire.
People who are already in this field know when they see a scam. So this was just to help the beginners out there to not fall in traps.
If you’re just new to the world of writing, let me tell you: There are a lot of scam sites out there. The legit sites are not just hard to get. They are hard to find among all of this. The best way to begin writing online is by writing for free. Write as a contributor or a guest to an already established site. For most, posts by guests aren’t paid writing works. It may even take a long procedure just to get your first piece approved. But it’s a start.
Or if not, you can try submitting a guest post to this site as well! See how that goes. Another thing about writing online, unlike traditional writing, there are a number of tools that you can use to help you create the best version of your content. No, I’m not talking about text editor boxes, these help you with SEO (e.g. Yoast SEO) or just for even Grammar! Grammarly is by far the best tool for that.
That would be all for today- I hope I was helpful to you :)
Update: I do NOT hire people for writing on this site here. Again, I just allow guest posts if an inspiring blogger wishes to give a try. With a couple of backlinks to one’s own blog if you want- as long as it’s relevant and complies with some of my rules… sure I’m 18! But I’ve got to be a discipline boomer when it comes to business here. Adios!
