Weird webhosting reviews .org

Hi guys,

I was just browsing around and found interesting things. Maybe you will be able to answer me this.
Most of web hosting companies have weird review blog which begings with [hosting_company_name] ends with [].
I thought to myself maybe it is some king of agency which works to review webhosting companies and just adds affiliate links to their names...but unfortenetely it is not as I noticed that they have all the same templates, but hosted in the different locations (probably webhosting companies have hosted in their servers).
All links are non-affiliate (or it seems that it is not).
Secondly they have the same program which gives full uptime report for their servers (program execution file hostingcompanyname.php).
What you guys think what is it? Maybe we should do some kind of independent webhosting review to get weigth on our websites? My vote would be YES Happy
Therefore maybe we should investigate and come to the conclusion is it a fake reviews automaticaly posted every few days or it is one of methods to generate content also automaticaly?
Well in my opinion it wouldn?t be a bad idea it is actually a great idea to reach bigger audience Happy
Thank you and will be waiting for your reviews and votes!

If you think that we should do the same stuff or similar to that maybe you can contact me (if you are interested) on and we would have a discussion regarding shared review sites. I have few ideas about it maybe and you would be interested?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
