    I have read 5-6 internet marketing ebooks in the last one week and the one thing they all have in common is that they consider warriorforum and digital point as IM forums. Its not like that they specifically mention BHW as not being one but they do not mention it as a major one. What do you think?

    Because some people perceive the Black Hat as disreputable.
    The connotations are that if you are a Black Hat Marketer then you are involved in illegal activities etc even though we all know this is not true.
    BHW is a more specialised forum than those general forums mentioned.

    Just like pirate bay is not considered an entertainment website but netflix is, if that makes sense.

    BHW has a stigma attached to it -- probably due to some of the strategies it promotes. Only once have I seen a major marketing website recommend it **without** the warning that its tactics could bring detrimental effects. Otherwise, it's always, "buyer beware."

    They should warn people of the warrior forum with all their WSO and War Room shit, gurus all over the place.

    Actually, they do. WF once came under fire from an article that was written by a well-known blogger (sorry - can't remember the name or the site). The article detailed how WF and sites like WF break online businesses before they even get started. It was so friggin' long, it almost broke the browser despite the fact that the article was split into two.

    If I remember correctly, the article was published around the same time that the FTC cracked down on advertising that promised ridiculous earnings from questionable ventures.

    Then there's all those anti-WF blogs out there that are kind of fun to read...

    WF isn't what it used to be. Look at the seo threads and I laugh out loud. Wimpy.

    I personally LOVE that BHW is not about marketing. SEO is a skill and BHW is dedicated to the art. I'm glad SOMEBODY still is...

    I'd love to get involved with one of those seo meet up groups that have a lot of women that do moral and ethical stuff, and start talking about some BH stuff

    That's because BHW doesn't allow such ebooks to thrive on their forum.

    1. The BHW members are smarter and don't buy sh1ts (excepting when over-drunken).
    2. BHW have heavy control over the sh1ts.
    3. Most of BHW members knows the information WSO sells years before the book is written.

    There is no need for us to defend our place in the Internet Marketing Community.
    The members and the so-called "gurus" of those other forums often come here to
    learn what is really happening in the world of online marketing and SEO.

    I think the essence of what BHW was and what it is now... has changed. Due to regulations changing in the industry it has forced the community to just suck up to more compliant ways of making money and as a result, a forum like BHW reflects that change. For new folks BHW can come across as a place of "a lot of things going on", especially if you're a bloke that still thinks site designs from a 90s newsletter layout is the way to get rich.

    Either way, every forum has its own spark. But BHW is definitely a great source for information on IM and SEO.

    Obviously the search function in BHW is not your friend so let me point you to 2 quality threads (just 2 on top of my head if you give me 10 minutes ill probably be able to find 10 more)

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-you-definitive-guide-authority-building.html

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-you-give-me-time-machine-heres-one-free.html

    What im wondering is can you point me to 2 threads in WF that provide the same insight and quality :)

    I'm still trying to fathom out how one can draw a comparison between BHW and WF (as an example).

    It's like putting two cars side by side; they're both gonna start, stop turn left, turn right and one may even have sat-nav, park assist and a camera stuck in the bumper so you can see when you're reversing but when you step back and look one has the badge of a prestige marque badge while the other one doesn't.

    And the prestige marque is always going to deliver something that the other one will never be able to.

    Bottom line is: BHW rocks the balls off of any other marketing related forum regardless of the colour of its hat. This forum is in a different league to the others but I can appreciate that not everyone has the same tastes and requirements.
