This thread is not to offend anyone nor to blame nor to troll. If you don?t like this topic - please leave. It is simple logic and it?s been like that for quite some time now. And blue guys know it. Not just me. I mean it may not die as a website, it just will become not worth visiting for anyone who knows decent stuff about seo. I used to spent and least an hour reading stuff in bhw, now I just come here every few days and spent few minutes. No longer. I am in few private IM skype chats AND trust me People are talking crazy stuff in private skype chats, some decent SEO methods are being discusses which are light years away to being even mentioned in public forums. It is just whole new level. I spent some time today doing research, browsing forum and I found HUGE amount of INCREDIBLE stuff being shared over 2008-2011: amazing cases studies, blueprints, techniques, guides etc. etc. And if I look at 2014 threads, half of them are just to troll someone, others are like: ?will it work?, ?google did that?, google does that?, ?how to neg seo cos I am too stupid to play it fair? and other pbn related bushtit. It?s getting quite obvious that big dogs, medium dogs and all king of dogs which truly knows seo and stuff that works are keeping it to themselves. And it?s ok. I do that, yet I am not an asshole as human being I just look for mine wellbeing and my families? first. Once your WORKING method is shared to public, gets overused instantly and brings google attention and wholla! They most likely will patch that algo hole in the next update. Google is not after link building techniques that are used by dozens or hundreds, they are after those used by thousands and millions. Why would anyone risk their websites and entire business to be gone just by sharing information with others? Nobody, not just me. Web 2.0 used to work like hell. Now they kind of work but links are highly devalued. PBN used to be one pager and it was ok, worked like magic. Now you have to take a bunch of precocious and make it look legit web just to be safe. Etc etc. If you going to brag me or critic, explain me why information being shared here LOST significant amount of value. BUT IT DID.
