The usertrust service is still live and supported. There are so many sites using the usertrust service so I give you the name of two sites below for your reference.
thanks for replying. If you are choosing 2 good examples of people using UserTrust (which I would expect) then these are not reassuring.
- The first site has only 4 (possibly) genuine reviews (6 in total but 2 appear to be site owner trials). All the "reviews" were made within a 10 day period 9 months ago.
- The second site, for an "All Natural Sexual Health Supplement for Men" has only 5 reviews. Again the first 3 at least are from the same person, the first 4 posted on the same day, and all the reviews posted 8 months ago.
What these referenced sites suggest to me is that even if these reviews are genuine, either the sites aren't very popular or successful, or the UserTrust logo isn't encouraging people to go on and leave reviews. Recent/current reviews or feedback are essential for user confidence or "trust".
I'm sorry to say we will not be signing up on the basis of these references. If however, Comodo decide to take this seriously at some point, it does look like a good idea.
