Rich Janitor review and analysis of sales page

Update: 9/21/2014 – The Rich Janitor website is now using the name Mike Dee instead of Mike Dougherty. If you have experience with The Rich Janitor program, please let others know about your experience. Of course emails like the following don’t bode well:

“1 click makes $1,099.20 in 3 minutes (EXPOSED)

I’m going to EXPOSE something unique. Can you imagine earning an effortless $1,000 per day in pure profit off of 1 CLICK??”

Original 8/1/2010 Review of The Rich Janitor Follows:

When I first started my Rich Janitor review of its sales page it was because so many people had asked me for my opinion on The Rich Janitor program by Mike Dougherty.

At first the requests to review Mike Daughtery’s sales page at RichJanitor.com just trickled in. But then the requests came in fast and faster. And no wonder…at the time of this post, according to Amazon.com’s Alexa ranking service The Rich Janitor website is the 4,075th most popular website in the United States and the 9,935th most popular website on the entire web:

So I took a look. There are a lot of strange things going on at The Rich Janitor site – especially when you compare it to another site called The Rich Dishwasher – which appears to be run by the same person (both sites are registered to the same person and are hosted together with only a handful of other sites).

The Rich Janitor site claims to be about a person named “Mike Dougherty” who the site claims was a janitor who amazingly stumbled onto the secret of massive online wealth.

The Rich Dishwasher site claims to be about a person named Ignacio Delgado who came to the U.S. in 2006, worked as a dishwasher and amazingly stumbled on to the secret to massive online wealth.

There are numerous problems with the stories at The Rich Janitor and The Rich Dishwasher websites – especially when you compare them side-by-side…and because both websites are registered to the same person – who is NOT “Mike Dougherty” or “Ignacio Delgado”.

A quick video comparing The Rich Janitor sales page to The Rich Dishwasher sales page will show what I mean:

In fact another site which uses the exact same testimonials from “Ken Coleman”, “Stan Mayfield”, “Hung Nguyen”, and “Sunil Chandrashekhar” is called Rate Race Assassin and is supposed to be about a “Single California Dad” named “Thomas Pride” who uncovers a “Powerful System For Making Quick And Easy Cash Online After Losing $7,373.28 With Internet Marketing Schemes”.

The bottom line is that there are 3 different sites controlled by the SAME person/company with stories about 3 different people (a janitor, a dishwasher, and a single father from California) – all that use the EXACT SAME testimonials from the following 4 “people”:

  • Ken Coleman – who wants people to know of The Rich Janitor, The Rich Dishwasher, and Rat Race Assassin: “Lots Of People Could Use This System Right Now…”
  • Stan Mayfield – who wants people to know of The Rich Janitor, The Rich Dishwasher, and Rat Race Assassin: “”One of the Most Simple, Unique and High Quality Systems I’ve Ever Seen”
  • Hung Nguyen – who wants people to know of The Rich Janitor, The Rich Dishwasher, and Rat Race Assassin: “Works Like A Charm…”
  • Sunil Chandrashekhar – who wants people to know of The Rich Janitor, The Rich Dishwasher, and Rat Race Assassin: “”I’d Recommend This To Anyone…”

Actually, Ken, Stan, Hung, and Sunil apparently got confused when they gave their testimonials for Rat Race Assassin, because they keep referring to “The Rich Janitor” program as you can see in the video below:

So a quadruple oops and a triple thumbs down for The Rich Janitor, Rich Dishwasher, & Rat Race Assassin’s ability to keep their facts straight on their sales pages!

One last thing…perhaps what’s most interesting to me is that Matt Bacak – who likes to boast about being the “Internet Marketer Of The Year” – was promoting this product. Although, if you’ve seen my recent Mass Money Makers review of his sales process for that product the fact that he promoted The Rich Janitor probably won’t surprise you at all.

  1. For a site with only 13 reported backlinks from Alexa, the traffic pattern looks like it was created with bots.

    • Hi Michael,

      It’s most likely real traffic – however a fair percentage may be of poorer quality than Organic SEO traffic.

      One thing to keep in mind about Alexa is that they get their backlink data from Google – and Google only reports a VERY small percentage of a sites backlink profile. And the less “important” the site is, the less backlinks even Google will report. In fact you’ll find that a lot of really popular ClickBank products show very few or even NO backlinks at Alexa.

      That’s why SEO backlink analysis tools use Yahoo’s backlink information.

      Here’s Yahoo’s BackLink information for the Rich Janitor site:
      RichJanitor.com’s backlink profile at Yahoo

      which currently shows 19,846 links from external domains.

      It is true that Alexa data is typically easier to manipulate than data from other sources (such as Compete) – but even Compete is showing a significant amount of traffic:

  2. Brilliant, Paul!!
    I kept receiving e-mails from 2 different marketers encouraging me to check out the amazing “Rich Janitor!” It just really seemed too slick and sleezy, so I promptly unsubscribed from their mailing lists…but one always wonders, what if? Thanks for all your good work!

  3. Michael, I think I’ll do a write-up on reverse-engineering both SEO and Non-SEO traffic – and maybe even a separate write-up on reverse engineering JV traffic which can get trickier because so much of that traffic often comes from email campaigns which are harder to reverse engineer than SEO, PPC, and other forms of paid traffic.

    This is an interesting read as well:
    SEO friendly affiliate links might not be so friendly

    • I would very much like to see that. The rich janitor alexa picture, in which the site rapidly approaches in terms of traffic the FTC traffic, is one of a fraud.

      The FTC should have warning signals flashing when a biz op site approaches their level of traffic.

  4. Paul,
    you are the best.
    How We can help you ?
    Donate money for your hard work ?
    What Else ?
    thanks

  8. OK. Obviously I’m way behind on doing the reverse engineering traffic sources, but it’s still coming.
