    I just got banned, errr... I mean censored for posting my views again - lol - from another admin living in a country that does not know democracy. Strange place, the web. All of a sudden the freedom many hold so dear, living in a democracy, does not apply to every place on the web. - this time heini had the satisfaction of playing communist dictator.

    Thank goodness for ABW.

    Thanks! I didnt realize it would be one that come with flames - lol! WOW! I just made my 1000th post shooting down one of the two things I hate most on the internet: WMW. Google is the other (if you already didnt know)!

    ... can't post a 1000 of these little cakes, huh? not in one message, at least.

    say, Heyder, does this mean Haiko treats me to dinner? I'll take a value meal at McDonalds! How about a number four (double quarter-pounder with cheese), super sized?

    Big Chuck congrats on the 1k

    BTW: I HATE THAT FORUM

    Serious webmasters BOYCOTT the forum that screws us spilling the beans!!!!!

    The owner there is making $$$$ being unethical and allowing the secrets of the trade(that made him $$$) out into the public.

    I HATE THAT FORUM

    Has anyone here flat out asked Brett why he's doing this? I know some ABWers frequent WMW, I do too from time to time, although I don't post very often.

    Going to WMW is kind of funny in a way. No one seems to agree on anything. A typical thread on WMW looks like this:

    "Google has devalued incoming links from pages with a PR lower than 6."

    "No, my site just went from a PR 5 to PR 6 with nothing but incoming links from sites with PR lower than 6."

    "My site has completely dropped off the index! Oh, boo hoo, what will I do now?"

    "What is your site URL?"

    "It's www. XXXXXXXXXXXX.com" [Edited to remove URL, not allowed by TOS]

    "Oh, I didn't know I couldn't publish my URL."

    "Is the dance on?"

    "No, this isn't the dance."

    "Yep, Yahoo showing 209,000,000,000,000 links on www2 and www3"

    "Yahoo looks the same from here."

    "Is GoogleGuy around?"

    "The dance is on!"

    "How did we get so off topic?"

    Ad nauseum...

    I think it would be interesting to hear what Brett has to say about some of the feelings expressed here. I never really thought about it before, but WMW could easily be a front for Google to extract dirty dealings from SEO Spammers...

    I know many will laugh at the conspiracy theory, but I don't know it does seem plausible...

    considering they dont advertise, and they have only provided the public with opportunity to donate contributions, I think that there has to be some revenue coming from somewhere.

    If I owned a site like WMW, I sure wouldn't give that kind of exposure, and at the top of the list, for nothing. Considering that there is no cpm, cpa advertising there, the benefit of using Google to drive traffic to the site makes no sense. What, coming from a perspective of generating revenue from traffic, makes sense other than the conspiracy theory. Google, imo, is taking care of BT quite well.
