    So, I kill a lot of time here and I noticed in my Toolbar that BHW is steadily losing it's value and rank since January this year.

    When I joined in November last year BHW was at around 500th place at Alexa but since January Google started giving less value to BHW in SE results. You can see in that link that the number of SE visitors went 50% down.

    My theory
    - MaCu didn't want to delist BHW cause I guess there wasn't any good resaon so they are picking one by one KW (probably KWs that bring the most traffic, if we don't count "black hat". "black hat world" and related KWs).

    At the same time when BHW started losing value, DP started gaining more UVs from Google searches and WF is still somewhere out there, keeping the same number of Google visitors.

    If you visit DP you will notice some VIDs made by MaCu (if you like watching this videos please stop) and if you visit WF you will notice a lot of fake Guru crap (there are fake ass Guru's here as well, but WF is a black hole when it comes to this)

    So, my theoryNo.2 - Even though BHW has a lot of regular members coming back for more Sarmale threads and Kimi's 1999 SEO guides I think that MaCu is trying to push out BHw from the game and leave DP and WF around to sell crap to the masses. But as the time goes by I think Google will send DP down and give even more value to WF. BHW will have to find a way to get more valuable threads from their senior members, and this can be done only by sharing something of 'real value', not some generic "methods" .

    I am not talking about "methods" that actualy will work, I am talking about methods that look atractive . Of course I tried this method, and guess what, it worked :) I didn't tried it for the sake of money, I tried it for the sake of testing.

    So, what are your thoughts? Is MaCu giving a silent treatment to BHW ?

    BHW has always been great and will continue to be. Nobody, not even Google can change that.
    MaCu can go and dump his head in a pond :D

    MaCu will be fired from Google if we're not here. Basically we're the one who is making him WORK. If we're indirectly helping him to buy those plain colored Tees which actually looks nice on him, then I don't see any reason for him to devalue BHW's SERPs.

    Why would M.C. want to delist BHW? Secret societies do more harm than public forums, on public forums you can spread disinformation and thus control the masses.

    I think it's just a personal thing. Something like, he wanna prove that his tool is bigger or something related. We should ask Sigmund Freud

    Yes I noticed the alexa rank change and I think there is probably some truth in what you say.

    Out of the 3 forums mentioned BHW is the only one that could be considered a threat to MaCu as most people here can see through his BS and the only forum that provides real advice and how to deal with it.

    WF doesn't discuss BH methods and MC is probably laughing at all the great WSO's that tell you how to get to #1 Google spot for only $7

    DP seems that it is trying to position itself more as a "Legit" IM and SE forum these days and yes every time I check it out, there is yet another MC video displayed.

    Anybody asked Wiz about this ?

    Theres been a good few changes to the forum this year...Nothing major but the new marketplace for example has diluted previous URLs,

    And as for Alexa. Unless someone can prove to me otherwise, I am still convinced that the majority of Alexas stats come from visitors with the toolbar installed. Hence why seo forums always rank stupidly high when in reality they are not in the top 500 sites in the world.

    Exactly, thanks for pointing that out. There IS MaCu video at DP pretty much every time I visit DP and those WSO's at WF are total garbage so he don't give a damn about them.

    True that, my 130/uniques per day site in SEO Niche is ranked above my 43000 uniques/day site (which is not SEO related).

    OT: Theory #1 seems legit, the scumbag probably feels threatened by BHW and cannot handle the pressure ;)

    The point was that you cannot say that it has always been when you haven't ALWAYS been a member. Perhaps it was a gay webmaster orgy when it first got started, where they posted nude pictures for each other, wearing black cowboy hats?
