My "Mega" Solar Security Lights Buyers Guide/Product Reviews

Hello Ghouls and Gals,

I am a newbie around these forums but I was hoping to get some feedback on an article I recently finished on my Solar Lighting website. It’s a “Mega” thread coming in at 13k words, 15 or so products reviewed, with a Buyers Guide and also some Installation Tips to finish it off. It’s monetized with amazon affiliate program, just to be upfront with everyone. If anyone had time to check it out and let me know if you think the information is valuable that would be amazing, especially because I know most of you are pros on lighting.

Here’s the link: https://www.thesolaradvantage.net/solar-security-lights/

Alrighty, well thanks in advance fella’s and take care for now!

IMHO getting dedicated solar panels with one big battery and inverter and normal LED lights is a better solution if you got many lights

Yes I agree, but that can be somewhat difficult for newbies or anyone not interested in spending the time to learn the system. These plug and play lights are a great entry point IMO.

Just a typical affiliate website. Nicely put together for SEO, and have to give credit you did also a good job on the layout.

But did/do you actually own the lights? Dont think so.

 

Why is your number 1 better than number 3?

No, I don’t actually own the lights. I build these reviews by finding all relevant information from around the web and presenting it in an easy to digest fashion.

It is supposed to save you time from doing all that research yourself. I don’t believe the article comes across like I am talking from personal trials. An example would be I emailed many manufacturers on warranty information and specific light statistics that could not be found on any websites. The article took about 4 weeks to create. I picked the number 1’s from my own opinion from reading thru 100’s of customers reviews for every related light on Amazon and analyzing the results.

I believe RuggedGrade will produce the best solar flood light and flag pole light. They mainly make commercial grade street lights and all are designed in America. They are bright, well constructed, and have a good warranty.

I would like to create DIY Lighting Projects as well if anyone has any suggestions on that would be great.

Thanks for all the reading and putting it in a clear overview. Think you've done that well.

 

I've just read and watched too much on SEO to recognise this kind of website Wink

You should cite the source websites from which you scraped the information, in my opinion.
And you should make clear that you don’t have first-hand experience with the hardware you’re describing.
Also, use quotation marks. A plagiarism detection tool is always worth using to check any dubious material.

You lost all credibility at the first photoshopped product picture. I can find plenty of those on amazon when I need a good laugh. If I’m going to read some other page, I expect to see real pictures of the products in use.

"...15 or so products reviewed."

 

That, to me, implies first-hand knowledge.
