    I login, click NEW MESSAGES and i am inundated with SEO link building ads. 90% of new searches for the day amount to nothing but advertising.

    Whats happened to BHW? In my opinion it should stay open to those who wish to buy and sell SEO services.

    ITS out of control!

    LOL....

    Sad but true.

    It's pretty much just a market now. Nothing of real value is ever really discussed any more..... I think too many noobs migrated from Herp Derp forums aka DP and WF!

    Perhaps you should log in more often :)
    Or stick your skype username in your profile. Voila, no more PM spam, and you can block the rubbish on a more personal level through skype.

    I was able to come here, learn, take action, and use some of those SEO services to eventually quit my job. I think there is plenty of value left.

    I have to agree that there isn't that much good information shared here anymore. I think it's because BHW has become too big. Don't get me wrong, I love the forum, but like most other entities that get too big the quality of the content slightly diminishes.

    I don't even mind the services being posted! I just wish that I didn't have to filter through 200 crappy fiverr resellers before finding a real service...

    The forum became too big.
    Last year, there used to be only 300 people viewing the blackhat main forums. Now there is usually 1000+.
    If you share something good in here, it will no longer work in less than a week just because too many people will use it.

    Honestly the ads are not that annoying, in fact i don't even notice them!

    If you are talking about service threads, just ignore them, it's easy to tell which ones are ads.

    Better to be a newbie....empty message box & you're left alone :)

    But im glad BHW is a busy marketplace. Part of keeping current, looking at what services are around.
    Anyway, the day BHW doesnt try to bank itself would be surely the day the internet died...no?
