Fake SEO Forums Erased?

It looks though the fake SEO forums launched last September that bashed me and promoted both Traffic Power and First Place are no longer are online:

  • seo-talk.net is removed, although their stats were still available and unprotected, so I saved a copy of those for future reference (people really ought to protect their stats).

  • seo-forum.net could not be found
  • seo-professional-forum.com is unavailable
  • web-advertising-info.com gave a 404 error

I wonder if this coincides with other recent events? It sure looks like someone is trying to hide something?

Google is unforgiving, however...

View the cache and see the fake forums.

Threadwatch members looked up the WhoIs history for SEO-Forum.net. Although it currently is registered via proxy originally it resolved to Las Vegas.

Some people have images and HTML snapshots of Google cache pages from that site as well as server logs showing traffic that was sent to that domain from search engines.

The forums must not be able to handle all the traffic they were getting from their lawsuit publicity stunt..

This shows how week they are in the knees. Go Aaron go.

Hey neighbor did you screen shot the fake forums and do whois on them?? You should be able to also countersue for libel/slander.

Also contact their states attorney generals office and the FTC vis a vis "deceptive business practices"

If all webmasters who have been ripped off by Toilet power started filing complaints with the State Attorney General, BBB, and other consumer protection issues Toilet Paper power would be to busy defending these claims to bother you.

Time to set the wheels in motion!!

I wonder if Googleguy or Matt Cutts would be able to lend some info - input.

Peace Bro!!
