When choosing a weather station, there are several factors to consider such as the weather parameters you want to measure and your budget. Here you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions on [link removed] and to help you guide through the process.

EDIT by Moderator: Removed website reference because it was Spam SEO of bogus weather station website.

Tons of misinformation in the article....for example...

There is a weather station that is not waterproof???? Really?
There is a weather station that is not applicable for high elevation and low pressure????

Then there is ridiculous logic for home users such as recommending a rain gauge sensor for those that spend time outside. hu? So if I don't spend time outside then I don't need a rain gauge?

I think you are right. I vote to ban. I'll let Ken weigh in. I welcome other forum users to politely voice their opinion.

I never even clicked the link. It seemed obvious spam as the poll has two separate choices for "Davis Instruments Weather Station" and "Vantage Vue Station". Basic lack of knowledge.

I decided to leave this thread up as an education for possible future SEO spammers. I've removed the external link in the OP.  The poll has been locked too....it was pointless as it was flawed and also was missing other options.

The Internet is littered with "the best weather station" or "the best coffee maker" or "the best jobs" or "the best cities"... and other similar content. They mostly are bogus websites with poor content trying to lure users to gain traffic and then that site earns revenue based on ads.
