What the Heck is IHype and Why Do They Keep Commenting My Blog?

I was going through my spam comments the other day and I came across one pertaining to a site called ihype.com. The comment wasn’t bazaar or anything however, after searching the Internet about this site I noticed many other people got the same comment. Here is the actual comment.

The website ihype.com is about to launch at the end of this month. It’s a very cool idea, especially to bloggers.

IHype

I found information about ihype.com on digg, on other blogs, and I even found the site itself (beta version and the real). Now, I only have one question. Is this site legit? Basically the site states that they discovered a new way for bloggers to get paid for blogging. This is done through companies who want advertisements created by bloggers. The ihype blogger would look at a list of products that they could write about and then would get paid via the amount of traffic that post (or maybe even blog) would receive. However, looking at the stats stated on their website, makes this site even more unbelievable. IHype says that bloggers could even make up to $10,000 a month which sounds a bit much to me. Here is the direct quote from the beta site:

Earn over $10,000 a month. Bloggers, web masters, site owners, experts and other online publishers can earn thousands a month reviewing and writing about advertiser products, services and more.

This sounds like a blog changing program to get into. The amount of money received from blogging can be ground breaking. Yet this also seems like a way to control what is being said over the blogs by bribing bloggers to just talk about these specific topics/products. Sooner or later, all blogs will just be out to make money by using services like the ones offer through ihype. All blog entries will be embedded with product placement and will not be based on real content. If anybody else has information about this site, please leave a comment below. Opinionated comments are also welcome.
