    I saw that the number of "viewing" users are very high in any given time of the day. It's just incredible how high the traffic is YET how low is the quality of the information there.

    I was wondering these things...

    1. It's a subdomain of DigitalPoint.com (obviously), but why such a poorly designed site with pretty much bad content get so much traffic?

    2. Why are there so many people (with low post counts) there?

    3. Why is everybody SELLING there and nobody BUYING?

    TO THINK that they get more traffic than BHW is incredibly amazing (in a bad way).

    1: I can't give an answer on that one, I just have no idea

    2: People probably post and then find bhw. Once you go blackhat you never go back lol

    3: Surprisingly, and believe it or not, the bst threads over there actually do generate alot of sales. I have known a few people who bought from there, and some people actually recommend to sell there.

    I personally have only been there one time (and that was just to see what the hype was about after reading a thread here about them)

    Ans: People go to places where they can save quick bucks and make more profits.. DP is known more for the large number of deals and low cost workers.

    2. Why are there so many people (with low post counts) there?

    Because the mods of DP are busy doing lots of infractions, so whenever you comment anything on DP, you have to think many times because 10 infractions, and you may be banned temporarily.

    3. Why is everybody SELLING there and nobody BUYING?

    It's demand and supply rule. When the supply increases and overlaps the demand, then all you see is "Supply" because everyone is busy selling :D

    TO THINK that they get more traffic than BHW is incredibly amazing (in a bad way).

    BHW is 100 times better than DP, and this is one of the reasons I left DP long back. The quality and standard BHW has maintained is exemplary.

    I only ever go there to wade thru the slime of people selling selling Fake PR links, looking for those rare genuine ones.

    It's all done via PM in that section. I don't think I've ever actually posted there.

    It was a great site 5 to 6 years ago and then it was consumed by members that can stoop so low they can crawl under a rock while wearing a Top Hat!

    It has never recovered

    In my Point of view we should not compare BHW and DP..BHW is full of serious business people
