    Hi.

    We all know how well BHW threads rank on the search engines for keywords used in the title, especially long tail keywords. I remember a guy a while ago was spamming his kitchen company on here, which obviously is not allowed and he was banned very quickly, but i checked the keywords he used were ranking very well within a few hours on Google search.

    Just an idea - How about opening a new paid section where people can advertise their websites using keywords/long tail keywords in the title? No comments can be made on the sale thread obviously.

    What do people think? I would happily pay well to advertise a few sites to get good rankings.

    By doing that bhw would drop down the rankings for "seo forum" and increase in rankings for "listing directory" lol

    You can still get a link by opening a BST thread, but you need to have an IM related service/product.

    Like Panther said,it spoils the whole idea behind the forum.

    It's like how Google pays Adblock to whitelist and show us it's Ads.

    Good idea for the link poster but very bad idea for Bhw as it would water down the relevance of the site to SEO and also would lower the quality in general - it would basically be a link farm wouldn't it?

    Also your links would soon diminish in value along with that.

    You'd basically be using BHW as a parasite?

    BHW is too awesome to be considered as a link farm. Stay classy, my friend ;P
