So I was reading around on Webhostingtalk.com because I'm looking for a good hosting company that provides multiple C-Class IPs at a good price when I came across this thread here: Code: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1001680 The OP was just asking a simple, valid question which happened to be the exact question I went to that forum for, and everyone in the thread jumped on his case for it. It seems to me like they know absolutely nothing about internet marketing or SEO, yet they talk outta their ass like they do. Here is one quote from a member that posted in that thread: First off, I guess affiliate marketing is now a pyramid scheme according to this person. (1st sign that they aren't qualified to talk on the subject.) Second, we IMers have absolutely no IT knowledge and couldn't even pass a college marketing 101 class. This is funny to me because everyone I know says the marketing you learn in college is shit compared to what you learn online through personal experience and forums like this. There's also some people that are smart as hell with IT that do IM. So again, their argument is void of any credibility. And then there's this guy: SEO has been useless for over 3 years?!?!? . I guess all my sites just move up in the rankings on their own then and have absolutely nothing to do with me building links and doing proper SEO. He then goes on to say to just build a site with unique content and get thousands of people linking to you. Wait, isn't getting links part of SEO? The very thing he related to a woman taking birth control pills after getting a hysterectomy? Today was the first time I ever read anything on that forum and after this, I'll never be going back. I heard somewhere that it was a good forum to discuss hosting but if they wanna talk shit to someone for asking a valid question and then give arguments that make no sense, I think I'll have to pass. What do you all think? I'd imagine some of you are members at that forum.
