I've been on this forum a while now. And I have noticed one big thing. Whenever a certain thing, whatever the hot new "thing" to do being talked about here a TON is you should avoid it. By the time guys on here are posting about it left and right it's an old fad and it won't be long before Google figures it out and slaps you hard. It happened with the SAPE link craze, wiki links, social bookmarks, and now PBN's. Each of those (outside PBN's which is the current flavor of the month) was at one time being talked about like it was the end-all be-all of quickly ranking anything. And not long after I saw people, and sometimes myself, get hammered. I have come to this conclusion. Don't go looking around here for the new most popular ways to rank. By the time they get posted they are already old. Find the things that NOBODY is doing, or that hasn't been popular for a long time. Because if all you do is follow the leader you'll never be the leader yourself.
