    For whatever reason, BHW has a high amount of "Case Study" and "Follow Me" type threads. Unfortunately, 99% of them never see completion and just clog up the site with useless hopes and unrealized dreams for an OP who was either too lazy, stupid or frustrated to finish what was started.

    What makes for a good Case Study or "Follow Me" thread? - ONE THAT IS ALREADY COMPLETED!! What? :eek::eek::eek: Yes - how about going and doing the full and complete case study, keeping a journal (daily/weekly/whatever) as you go and then posting EVERYTHING all at once for all to see and actually learn something from. Yes, it may take a few weeks or even (gasp) a few months to get it done, but if you want to do things right that is the cost.

    I could post examples from other SEO forums (where this type of thing is the norm) but I won't out of respect to ownership around here.

    Don't become another statistic. Go finish what you start and then tell us about it, what you did and what your results were.

    The thing with your own Case Studies is that seeing other users actually following and giving you tips is a great way to improve your performance and spreading the knowledge.
    However, I agree that it's frustrating to subscribe a case study and never see it's end.
