A bunch of random forum news...
Lots of stuff going on in the SEO Forum scene. In the last week not one but two people have tried to hire me as moderators for new forums that are coming out. I said no, but talk about a saturated market... One of the forums is a big money pay site, the other will be at a link site (since they are not out yet neither of them are mentioned by name in this post).
Its kinda cool that people would be willing to pay me to do what I do for free anyway. I wonder if it would be worth it to try to make my own forum? I could have one of a million SEO forums :)
My friend Nandini is starting a new forum called SEO Zip. I am not supposed to mention it until tomorrow, but I felt like mentioning it with all the other forum stuff. I am trying to help her get it off the ground running, so I will try to post there a good bit. Please stop by and say hi.
Post Trades is a new forum dedicated to link trading. They got a cool tool for analyzing data about your site in the upper right corner too.
Derek Chew also has a new forum at SEO Place.
(from an anonymous forum moderator at a forum which is new to me) I got accused of major forum spamming for the first time:
Your many posts in the seo forum smell like spam to me. I am sure of it. But, I am a fan of link spam so no problem... just try to put more thought into your posts. It is too obvious that your just trying to get a high post count and want to post the smallest amount necessary in order to give a half-assed answer.
I am not saying your answers are wrong - just shallow, and you know it. If you don't know it then you have no business running seobook.
I did not even put a sig link in my posts and all I could think was "what a jerk."
Lots0 just retired from moderating at SearchGuild. If I had to list 2 or 3 people who taught me the most about the web and SEO stuff his name would be on the list. Thanks for teaching me so much Lots0 and hope to see you around.
ThreadWatch is a great place to get forum coverage if you don't have time to visit them all.
