    Hey guys,

    We just did a short social media analysis on online marketing forums through Sociota... and here are the results:
    http://sociota.net/SocialMediaAnalysis/Report/183http://sociota.net/SocialMediaAnalysis/Report/183

    It's clear that BHW ranks much better than any of the competitors like warriorforum, digital point & wickedfire in spite of the fact that some of these are probably more active on facebook and twitter. Another interesting thing that we observed is that BHW is ranking not only because of its reach but also the sentiments. People talk of good things about BHW on Social Media.

    If people here are interested, we can set this report up on Auto-Update so that it gets updated hourly or daily.

    We are working to improve our social media analysis capabilities on Sociota. So please take a look and let me know what else can be done on such reports to make them even more useful for the users.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I would love to see how you got the figures you used in the study. What did you use to measure sentiment? I think this study could be quite valuable if you could back-up your findings with a solid mythology.

    I do agree that BHW should be #1 as far as social goes. Just yesterday I saw Matt Cutts basically responded to a thread on twitter. That kind of stuff happens here all the time. Never see that on WF, etc.

    Hello,

    There is no problem with the link. It is working alright. Have you made sure that you are connected to the internet? :p

    However, here are some screenshots from the report.

    I think this is a measure in terms of their social media presence. Doesn't mean one of the other is better or worse. That is a highly subjective.

    Sentiments and scores are calculated using the algorithms we have developed in last one year while working on Sociota. Sentiment is a score on a scale of 100 which is calculated by analyzing the number of times people have posted with a positive attitude vs. the number of times they have posted with a negative attitude.

    We are able to track interesting movements in sentiments in some of our other reports too. Many a time, they directly point towards the related news stories.

    My Journey section is what distinguishes BHW for me. Plenty of inspiration and ideas to try for yourself.

    I think BHW is going to be put in an even better light not that WaFo was bought out, I can't see them staying afloat the same way and people can only buy so many useless WSOs. lol

    The other ones aren't even worth mentioning, the fact that the smaller (more vulgar) version of BHW (you know, the ones who copied the Spitfire logo?) doesn't even like mentioning or linking to BHW shows you how influential this place really is...

    BHW is king, I knew that for a few years now... but, it's time to acknowledge the truth.

    It's funny because I started my IM journey on WF, never bought anything, I was just soaking up information. After that I found DP, got a few clients for writing on there and thought that was that.

    Nope, found BHW and I've been here ever since.

    Clearly there's an obvious winner here, but that's not to take away from DP (I thought it was rather decent, albeit somewhat underpopulated). WF Is complete garbage in my opinion, but that's just me.

    HIP HIP HOORAY FOR DAMIEN!

    The impressive thing with BHW is, that the main objective of admins doesn't seem to be maximum profit, but transparency and a strict no-BS attitude. That's why I love this forum.

    Without a strong objective for these two last mentioned things, ALL marketing forums are doomed to become crappy ad platforms. That's just the "nature" of business.

    warm regards,

    Yes... creating a magicbox report on Sociota is absolutely free. You can create unlimited number of such reports. You need to pay only when you monitor a report... like if you want to automatically update this report every few hours.

    You can create your own reports on http://sociota.net/magicbox

    Well, here on BHW forum you get a lot of 'Great thread, good luck with the sales' posts in marketplace section. So it's a positive signal for your report but in reality it's just post building practice.
    It always makes me wonder why those posts are allowed to stay as it just takes absolutely ages to find reviews and questions about the specific services offered.

    If we see that someone is obviously posting a number of those spammy "Thanks, good stuff"
    kinds of posts, we delete their short posts and give them an infraction. However, it is simply
    not possible to catch each and every one. We do appreciate it when members report those
    types of posts though, and we do take action on the culprits who are attempting to increase
    their post count by means of making short spammy posts.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    BHW is number one for me. I been on WF and DP. They are just a platform of advertisement. Just that BS advertisement everywhere and as far as BHW is concerned, it's strict about it quality and that's what i like. Transparency and equality.
