Ridiculous spike in searches for "black hat world".
There was the DVD of the movie "Black hat" which was released in the US in May 2015. Perhaps there was a promo in April?
Or was there an Anonymous attack against something in April/May 2015 ?
I know there was a data breach of BHW back in June 2014: https://haveibeenpwned.com/PwnedWebsites#BlackHatWorld
I think it was something about that because there was so many people asking about hacking.
Warrior forum was probably having a lot of downtime that month.
Wouldn't WF members just enter blackhatworld.com and not google for it?
Ceosam became self aware. Stopped smoking gear.
That's interesting it'sl like double the amount of searches hmm
CEOSam was giving out free SEO methods that month everyday
You would think so, but then again...
If you mistype url in Chrome it will automatically take you to Google where it will suggest one.
It happens to me at least once a day on random sites.
If you would have a bunch of non users typing "blackhatworld" without having it accessed before, it will take you to seach engines as well.
But to be honest I dont think this is the case.
Maybe it have something to do with April fools also?
And obviously Black Hat movie suggestion seems spot on as well.
I believe #opisrael was around the middle of April, That could likely help the spike.
You overestimate the intelligence of the average WF member.
Maybe It's to do with Ungagged in May...
Perhaps, it was the mobile update google made:
[h=4]Mobile Update AKA "Mobilegeddon" â€” April 22, 2015[/h]In a rare move, Google pre-announced an algorithm update, telling us that mobile rankings would differ for mobile-friendly sites starting on April 21st. The impact of this update was, in the short-term, much smaller than expected, and our data showed that algorithm flux peaked on April 22nd.
