Are you a member of Warrior Forum? I was planning to start a community for hubbers where we can help each other at Warrior forum but would need some help on it.
I have never heard of it until now. It sounds interesting.
No. I don't think I am anymore. I used to go there, but as others have said, the place is now full of f**kwads flogging useless internet marketing fluff.
Yes that's what it is, an SEO forum. It used to have a few pretty knowledgeable SEO "experts" there, but of late it has all been old hat.
I'm not too sure. Jeremy Kershaw brought out a plugin that I jumped all over. The plugin makes local search easy to rank and to populate.
Suffice to say, that one very small wso plugin has increased my online earnings by about six hundred percent. If you look closely, you can find some real jems in there.
I'm reading one now that potential customers download a free report. You use a few unknown Facebook techniques to make that ebook go viral. This one wso has the potential to make a professional wage a month. I'm not talking about one or two thousand a week, I am talking a PROFESSIONAL wage.
I've been a member for many years. There is some bad re-hashed stuff, but every now and then there are some real gems. Take the wso on increasing Adsense cpm for instance. Pure gold...
Sounds like a need for a hub if it isnt written already Terry
Well yes you have a good point. I remember writing a hub once on finding true competition for a keyword phrase. You go to the last page of Google search which generally shows you the true count. You generally get this:-
In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the 771 already displayed.
If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included.
The next week a wso came out showing this very same technique. Or the one wso that discussed and copied my article for Yahoo Pipes and how to gain massive traffic. Yes, you guessed it, someone turned it into a wso that included my never before seen techniques.
Well maybe a little reverse engineering can mean a great hub. It appears there is no honour between thieves. And, to prove my point and to stick it up the thieves there is an easy slightly blackhat way to use Google search to find ANY wso on the net. So a thief should always be very careful.
I suppose that's why hubbers don't steal ideas, we're decent people...
I'll give an example for nothing. This idea is tossed around one hundred times in one thousand different ways.
With knowledge comes great power, use this very carefully and it can make your dreams come true:-
"powered by mediawiki" + "Log in / create account" + "inurl:.edu"
When one has some success with some really good and useful hubs, some bastard may come along and try to pinch the idea and attempt to with unsportsmanlike attitude, get in on the action.
Its us decent folk that are trying to make a few dollars and most of us like to help out the newer hubbers as well.
Ive been involved in the forums here and can see and understand why alot of people who do well here get pissed off.
Yet thats why other forms of communication help to.
Not all thieves have their fingers on all the good oil
Oh so very true. I remember someone came in here talking about re-writing an article they found and thought was total crap. Now that person had seven hubs on search engine optimisation. It was pretty good stuff.
Imagine copying those seven hubs to Word and making them a pdf. You give the pdf away as a free report with a few affiliate links to sell a Clickbank or Shareasale product.
In that case, and the point I am alluding too, if you have something that works, keep the bloody thing to yourself and don't draw attention, as did the forum poster I am referring to.
The warrior forum has a lot of low quality, dumb users. And unlike Hubpages, most of them want your money, too.
The only reason I'd actively participate was if I wanted to sell a WSO or sign up for the War Room.
Yes, I'm a member and yes there are some real gold nuggets to be found on those forums. Unfortunately, most are buried under thousands of tonnes of marketing drivel aimed at coaxing you into buying outdated, rehashed or just plain stupid SEO and marketing tricks and tools. Honestly, if I find a 'system' which can make me "thousands of dollars a month" then I'm implementing it myself and then outsourcing it to scale it up to millions, not selling it for $97...
Of course, selling a system for $97 actually IS the system...
Some of those guys and girls are amazingly good marketers, the kind who could sell snow to Eskimos, which makes clicking into anywhere like the WSO forum very dangerous to your wallet! My hat goes off to their skills but my purse strings stay tightly closed.
Like I said, if you are willing to dig through the garbage and take what anyone there says with a large pinch of salt and a healthy dose of scepticism then there are some real gold nuggets to be found which will make you money if you put the effort in.
Well I used to think it was rip off rubbish on there, and at first, yep, I got a bit ripped off. Pretty soon I was down to my last $97. So I took my time thinking about my next move. Obviously I couldn't afford any $98 offers but would you believe it... the very next day there was an offer for $97.
I was lucky to get in quick because it was going up the next day or it was the only one left (can't remember, not important) and since signing up it has changed my life.
So much so that nowadays I just relax and count my money, and probably live on a boat or something - oh yeah and I got lots of nice friends with like real teeth and clean clothes.
The great thing is that now I want to give something back to the guys that made it happen - that's you! A thankyou for all, um, whatever you did for me back in my poor days.
Rather than tell you everything here now, for free, I'll probably write a hub on it and make you the offer official like.
But not just now. I need to go and sip some more champagne or maybe have a kebab. Probably have sex with someone I expect.
Yes i am a member of Warrior Forum.But it banned the account very soon as we insert any link in this
Yeah, just not been there in years, will have to visit again soon!
Yes i am a member, and i owe my forage into the IM world to Warrior Forum. I still go there now and then to read and learn what's going on in the IM world.
If you read between the lines, there's tons of info to learn from.
And i have never spent a dime on any WSO, but did buy one of the best wordpress themes for my websites a couple of months ago.
I'm glad i purchased it too.

Since I joined HP there has been a constant battle against the rise and fall of traffic. We are often encouraged to tune our titles, edit our content and generally try to improve our Hubs. Now with the threat of having...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?

Is the growth sustainable? When I arrived 4 months ago, we had 400,000 hubs. What is it now, 500,000? Does this site really benefit from people writing almost identical hubs on the same topics?When somebody arrives they...

I was invited to be moved on new subdomain in response to my interest in the blog. I have no clue what will happen. Whatever, how are you people choosing your new name?
