Snitch Post Round Up

Thread Title: Threadwatch.org Thread Url: http://www.threadwatch.org Thread Description:

Sometimes I really wonder what kind of heavy duty hallucinogenic class A's some webmasters are on:

High Rankings - Whiner This fools talking about posting in a google forum pretending to be the owner of the target site - He's whining about his mobile disco site fo gods sake. Im ashamed to be english... Web Pro New - Smug Cow This smug little madam just makes me ashamed to be part of the same species SEO Guy - Guy sees the Light! This chap's quite cool, starts out with the usual whiney crap but turns it around when his peers point this out SEO Chat - Whiney little cry baby... This bloke makes me want to be sick. What a snivelling little twat. Funnier though is tstolber who thinks that you should report hidden text to the WEB HOSTING CO. -- give me strength! Dont they teach children anything these days?

Sempo Tahoe hot off the press:

Nick W: If you're not familiar with SEMPO TAHOE, get familiar with it. It's an astonishingly funny spoof site centering on the ofttimes amusing antics of the "lets play office" crowd at SEMPO headed up by Babera Coll - or she who cannot speak...

Doug Heil (ihelpyou) Duped by Arelis Email

Thread Title: The "RIGHT" way to do Links Thread Url: http://www.ihelpyouservices.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=16249 Thread Description:

Here's one to give you a chuckle on a dreary Tuesday morning: Doug Heil writes about a link exchange request he got, expounds upon the virtues of said email and instructs his followers to:

"Learn from this email. Copy it and use the darn thing yourself"

It was an automated scraper request generated by Arelis ;-)

To be fair to Doug though, it was a pretty well written email, still obviously machine generated though. If you're not familiar with Doug's views, he hates almost anything automated.

"You can bet that very soon,..... more strict penalties will be applied to links pages, and this link stuff won't mean too much. More types of good filters are in the works that will stop these auto type programs from surviving. I hate them. I hate spam"

"Auto programs will be illegal as well since they cost websites lots of money when they scrape code "without" permission"

seomike opens a can of worms with this little bombshell by some dozy bint who thinks it's cool to report sites. rcjordan and ihelpyou are already in it and my bet is it'll be a belter of an argument on the subject of design vs opt and "ethics". We'll see...

Whalen Bashing - A New Sport?

Thread Title: Jill Whalen - Useless SEO Thread Url: http://www.webworkshop.net/seoforum/viewtopic.php?t=3384 Thread Description:

I dont know the history, but PhilC is tearing into Jill Whalen over at Web Workshop. Does she deserve it? Has she bought it on herself? - Phil clearly thinks so.

"For years, Jill has used words like "scum" to describe some people - and me personally. She's always had a big mouth about it."

LinkItforward.com - Guerilla Forum Marketing

Thread Title: Define me a Link Farm Thread Url: http://www.searchguild.com/tpage15351-0.html Thread Description:

Here's an interesting one on a couple of different levels. Firstly you have some definitions of "link farm" - nothing really new there but within the the thread there's what appears to me to be a tag team forum promo by two new members of Search Guild - Stretch Dog and nanoreef n'amugabeer.

They're promoting a site called LinkItForward.com that's essentially (from what i can gather) a database of backlink hunting SEOs - the idea being to gain non-recip backlinks. The product might have legs, i just dont know, but it's pretty interesting to see.

Call me an old cynic, maybe i am, but i've no idea how the Search Guild guys have missed the (to me) obvious tag team setup there, the posters are waaay to similar in there passion for the program and knowledge of the details to be genuine IMO. Make your own mind up.
