    Please note that is for newbies only. I am not sure if there is a forum functionality to do this, so I figured it is better to use google.

    Find posts that have between 100 and 1000 thanks written by any user:
    Code:
    "The Following 100..1000 Users Say Thank You to * For This Useful Post" site:blackhatworld.com
    
    Off course, you can change the values, so you can find lets say posts which have 200..500 thanks.
    If you want to find posts made by a specific user, then just change the * with his/her username.

    example:
    Code:
    "The Following 2..1000 Users Say Thank You to Scritty For This Useful Post" site:blackhatworld.com
    

    Edit: You can keywords or words such as guide, method (or [Guide],[Method]) ... at the begging to find more informative posts. Credit goes to Duffers5000 and simply for that. It is a great way to filter the results.


    Code:
    intitle:Guide "The Following 10..1000 Users Say Thank You to * For This Useful Post" site:blackhatworld.com
    intitle:"case study" "The Following 10..1000 Users Say Thank You to * For This Useful Post" site:blackhatworld.com
    intitle:"method" "The Following 10..1000 Users Say Thank You to * For This Useful Post" site:blackhatworld.com
    intitle:"[B][B]Tutorial[/B][/B]" "The Following 10..1000 Users Say Thank You to * For This Useful Post" site:blackhatworld.com
    [B]intitle:"Journey" "The Following 10..1000 Users Say Thank You to * For This Useful Post" site:blackhatworld.com[/B]

    That will work for lower numbers. After that results will be skewed by a lot of other factors. Also a lot of the most thanked posts were just giveaways and not neccessarily that informative. When I was starting out looking to find good information I tended to keep a mental list of people who talked sense and kept an eye out for their posts/threads.

    Still a good method op + rep for helping newbies

    Thanks For the share. But not sure it will find the Best Post as its depend on how many thanks the post have not the quality. Sure there is a relation between them but not always. we can see a format to the thread title like [method], [get], [Journey] etc and we can use those also as a keyword for search.
    Still a great find and sure will help.
    Thanks again

    Good idea. It should also be mentioned that you can use:

    site:http://www.blackhatworld.com KEYWORD

    to find just about anything instead of asking first. Many people just start asking a question that has been asked a million times.

    I have just added that. I thought to add this before, but i didn't.

    The best post are however found by following the best users, but still all the best posts are most likelly among the posts that have the most thanks. People here judge post quality pretty well.

    BHW!!
    Home Page:
    the best way to find answers to questions on BHW is not to use the search function!!! I type, site:blackhatworld.com +whatever!!

    This always finds the answers to the questions I'm looking for on BHW. Every question you see here has been asked 100 times before! BHW is seriously becoming very similar to WF. Sorry to say, but the useful and helpful information that used to appear here has now changed to $hit like 'how do i make backlinks', etc. etc.

    I guess it's the natural progression of a site that's now one of the most popular sites on the internet!!

    No BHW is nothing like WF. Yes you can use site method but you won't find the best posts this way.

    You should atleast add something like that:

    Guide + keyword site:blackhatworld.com
    Tutorial keyword site:blackhatworld.com
    Case Study keyword site:blackhatworld.com

    If 100-1000 people thank on a method/tutorial, the post is less useful overall because the methods get overused and over-saturated :D

    Internet is very large. Also you have to keep in mind that less than 1% of the people who thanked for the the post are going to use the method, and that the most methods cannot be saturated.
