Good find. Does "the collection is inspired by Indian Sub-continent" mean "this is where our sweat/shopfactory is located" I wonder?

This is not really a complaint but I wonder if it is possible to make the evidentiary urls clickable for lazy people like me?

I cannot link directly, sorry. It gives them too much exposure in the Google ranking.

That makes sense. I had not thought about that possibility. I guess I'll have to unlazy myself.

I have flagged Vizzeli several times for well over a year, with links to the very sites you have linked. Apparently it does not matter that the Alibaba site indicates they have 11-50 employees or that they are only distributors/wholesalers. Their profile information has changed a great deal from when I first started flagging them. I wish I'd taken a screen shot of it then.

I get not wanting to advertise for these people... however, your linking them will ALSO bring up your site when their product is googled. And that would inform the would-be customer of these shady practices.

Just an observation.

mmm

Linking the alibaba links etc and not linking their stores?

Wende said...

Yeah, if only that. The truth is, I know you're not wanting to help promote their stores, but you can only reach people if the KNOW. And google can get the word out for you much faster than any other avenue.

Because while our little blogs may get thousands of hits a day... Google gets... yeah, GOOGLES. :D

I'd say LINK! Get your message out there. :D The more you can inform, the better. Linking makes that possible... most people won't bother to C/P. Sadly.

I have flagged this shop over and over- all they did was change their profile- used to say made in South Asia...

I want them GONE!!

The shop is empty, I noticed today. But their last sale was only a couple weeks ago, so maybe they're just on holiday. Or maybe, just maybe...they're actually gone?!?

I see that their website (einek.com) no longer lists the Etsy store. Actually it doesn't list any stores any more. Interesting...
