This is especially important for those who operate article, e-book and ezine sites. I personally have visited many of these sites and was shocked to find they had no categories for consumer protection or Internet safety. Visitors look to these sites in order to findrepparttar detailed information they need to make wise buying decisions. While consumer advocates CAN still post their information, they are forced to place it in such categories as “nonfiction” and “general”. The poor consumer is then forced to dig for or accidentally trip overrepparttar 131930 information in order to find it.

Here are three sites that do fightrepparttar 131931 war on unethical business practices and provide easy to find consumer protection and Internet safety education information. In my opinion, they deserve your business.

eBook Palace http://www.ebookpalace.com/cgi-bin/search/hyperseek.cgi

The International Council of Online Professionals (iCop™) http://www.i-cop.org/directory/index.htm

eBooks N' Bytes http://www.ebooksnbytes.com/ebooks.shtml

So by simply adding a consumer protection and Internet safety information (or a link to a consumer advocacy site) in an easy-to-find place, you can help fightrepparttar 131932 war on unethical business practices. By doing so you increase your own consumer confidence and sales.
