    While I checked my site in Alexa today for some reason, I also checked BHW's popularity... Here is a shocking result. The trend it is showing is shocking, imho, to say the least. (The red arrow is my addition to the result) The image:

    http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/blackhatworld.comhttp://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/blackhatworld.com


    Some Possible Causes (and, ofc, concerns):

    1. How to get back to those earlier days?
    2. Are we showing some very bad troll threads in the http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/search.php?searchid=15737286? And of course, are those troll and unimportant threads are getting bumped to the top again and again, pushing down the better threads in the process?
    3. Do we need another section for unimportant threads which should not be shown on the main page, i.e. on: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/search.php?searchid=15737286?
    4. Are visitors not interested in the content as before?
    5. Possible reasons: Troll threads, inactive download section, not too many high-quality threads showing up the top of the search pages and thus making the visitors to turn back and possibly many would never return again, or
    6. lack of or lessened quality of quality BH content which makes it uninterested to many visitors who have seen lot better days before?
    7. What else could be the reason of the consistent fall of popularity?
    8. OR, is that neg movement due to the entire site was getting transferred to a new server during the last year or so? And may be it will come back to its normal higher position by the passage of time required for it to come back on its own? I am thinking now that this is main reason for that downwards trend, and this great site will come back normally to its normal position (the higher position shown in the chart)... ?

    But whatever the case,

    Guys, let's give it a serious thought, and let's all move that trend in the positive direction once again. Please, let the brilliant members help it come up to that earlier position may be by August or October this year, and then make it move to a lot better position by the end of this year, or in the 1st half of the next year.

    We are at present trying to revive an "upper" section, and I, as a member of that section, am very thankful to all the contributing members, but the general section now needs that kind of effort too...

    I am hoping to see the arrow turn the direction quickly and move upwards consistently once again. No more going down to the present level in future.

    @Mods,
    If this thread is somehow inappropriate, then please remove it. I opened this thread because it was disheartening to see that kind of negative movement in little less than last one year's time...

    You do realize that you have not contributed something of high value to the forum in years, correct? It's easy to tout a join date and a blue name and a handful of Thanks and urge others to make changes, it's something else to actually be a part of that change. A red arrow pointing downwards isn't going to solve a thing.

    lol amazing that people still use Alexa.

    And then blame "troll threads" for traffic decline. Nice red herring to work into complaining about things you don't like. And yet contributes nada except complaints about posters.

    The Lounge is the best forum on this site.
