    From the previews that movie looks pretty bad, but I have a feeling a large number of people are going to find their way here because of it just by search terms alone. Question is, do you think its going to be quality traffic or do you expect a bunch of low quality spam?

    Similarly to how the movie 21 attracted average people to card counting, the movie Blackhat will inevitably attract teenagers who think the life of a "black hat" (hacker or search engine optimiser) is filled with excitement, women, fast cars, explosions, and shootouts with the FBI. These people will eventually move on, like they do with everything else, once they realise there is work involved to learn black hat SEO or hacking.

    The movie isn't about "black hat seo" so no I don't think it will cause them to come here. I think it will get people more interested in hacking and cracking for a short while then it will die off.

    This forum is on first page google search for "blackhat" so it will get people just for that fact.

    BHW isn't on the first page for "blackhat", the people are most likely going to go to wikipedia and or blackhat.com (which is the site of a hacker convention).

    I give 0.1 star.

    This movie is more about hacker thing, and how geek can be a muscle guy? And punching around??

    LULZ

    They should make a movie about, how blackhat guy manipulate the Google SERP, FB ads, SPAMMING, and banking million of money per month, while still living in mama based.

    Funny . . . When I first saw the trailer on the TV, it came to my mind that
    it will likely attract some people to our site via Google search. Of course,
    once they discover that we are not blackhat hackers, most of them will
    just leave. However, it may attract some new members who, for one
    reason or another, end up staying.

    You know how we get new guys/gals all the time who mistake this for a hacking forum
    and post questions hacking related? I see a decent spike in that activity which means
    a brief work load for the staff, but nothing too major.

    It won't take long before the Tsunami stops. Like Wiz said a couple will stay around
    because they discovered something they didn't even know existed.

    Die hard had a much better plot and it was about black hat hackers too. Am i the only one that noticed the term "black hat" being tossed around in that movie. (Die Hard 4)
