    Take a look at this... http://www.seobook.com/archives/2004_09.shtml

    "More Fake SEO Forums Promoting 1P & Traffic Power
    Andy Beal just spotted
    seo-talk.net &
    seo-forum.net

    Later someone else noticed
    seo-professional-forum.com

    All the fake SEO forums promote the same garbage as the other forum I found. On seo-forum.net they ran a poll for my ebook (what real premoderated poles do you know that would use the following language and options)

    * It was a waste of money.
    * Aaron Wall's writes like a preschooler.
    * If this were a real book, I'd wipe my ass with the pages!


    The goal of this "clever" advertising bit is to try to make all SEO forums look deceptive and sneaky so that Traffic Power, 1P, and similar companies who had been complained about can be at a level bar with respectable SEO firms.

    Basically it is a "our name is in the tank so we want to ruin yours too" type of game...kinda like how politics works. There is something overtly transparent about their forums that would likely turn off any site visitors. They could not have possibly been any more transparent.

    Andy Beal has more info about the comment moderation of the fake SEO forums...apparently whoever made the forums was so foolish that they ping Feedster with the hidden moderated comments. Andy has a few of them posted on his blog."

    Now it all makes sence... I was reading one of the posts which a user was praising traffic power and I was saying to myself, what the heck are they talking about...??? :confused:

    Nothing at all there made any sence whatsoever...

    I've just added a note to the FAQ section on SEO forums.

    It's like a joke. But there are many newbies who can get misinformed by their forum. Somebody should start some legal action I believe.
    They talk sh.. about all the respectible seo experts. so sad :(

    I'm surprised tp is still even in business. Funny thing how their initials are the same as a product we use to wipe our _____.

    Isn't TPs reputation in tatters after all their clients got banned? Are they really still around after that?
