    I'll make this short, or not..

    Recently, I've seen alot of members giving advice regarding issues they don't understand themselves. I know that most mean well and try to be helpful (not talking about post counters) but giving misinformed advice causes more damage than good.

    I'm mainly talking about bad SEO advices, and let me explain something to the users who don't know this. SEO is very volatile and sensible, especially nowadays; to exemplify further it's just like a playing card castle, it takes lots of patience and time to build it and it doesn't take more than a small mistake to see it all crumble down. I'm talking about low budget SEO, on non-brand websites, about 80-90% of all the SEO done worldwide.

    That being said, a bad advice, due to lack of knowledge or bad faith can hurt a fellow member instead of helping him. I'm talking about advices such as this one: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-optimization-adsense-sites.html#post6488620

    I don't say that the user had bad faith, but if the OP will apply that advice, most likely, his site will be penalized. The point I'm trying to make is that if you are not 100% certain you're right regarding a matter, don't post anything. Also, try testing your advices on your own websites and see what happens, then advice others to do so (if you still feel like it). Maybe one day you'll need help with some info and it will suck if you get bad advices wouldn't it?

    Over and out.
