    Hi!

    I lurk a lot, I'm a newbie, and I just wanted to know what makes an account valuable? I wouldn't sell even if I could, I have found this site quite useful, but I saw a posting on SEOClerks that offered to buy any BHW account made before Jan'14 and I am curious, why?

    Thanks

    Tam )

    I don't see much use at all in buying an aged account here... An account with a bunch of thanks would be a different story.

    They probably just want old accounts with some "authority" on them. Posts, thanks, etc. So they can have better luck selling their shit.

    A bunch of different reasons really but yeah it is against the TOS to have multiple accounts and/or sell your account. Somethings people do with these accounts are boost posts by commenting or liking, scam people, split-testing, multiple services under a different name, etc.

    Well, thanks for explaining it to me. I don't have many posts but I do visit often as I try to build up some work-at-home income. I guess having no posts in 2 years opens me up to some heckling :) But for the record, I appreciate all the info and knowledge Ive gained here. Hopefully I'll be able to contribute something useful soon, LOL.

    Look at the BSTs where low post count users who haven't posted anything in years are suddenly confirming new orders weekly and posting reviews in the same BSTs and you will understand.
