Are There Google Spies on WarriroForum

by 67 comments
What could be the reason most people hide their Signature on WF when either asking a question?
1. Is it that there are google spies here
2. or they don't want other warriors for outrank them
3. or kill their site with negative seo or what??

One of my reasons for asking this question is because I see a lot of people ask question and refuse to give the website and keyword they are looking for the solution for....

    Maybe most people have not set their sigs at all.

    to avoid being called out for asking stupid noobish questions while having a sig offering "SEO services"

    Very sometimes I hide my sig when I expect that people would reply back with a comment like "huh look at you, judging me while at the same time promoting your own services in your sig".

    And I love to judge people, but when I do I am always right, that's the difference that they don't see, but still to avoid such dull comment I sometimes disable the sig, most of the time I don't give a crap though.

    Well you're not exactly the type who asks questions like "What are backlinks?" and then has a sig for SEO services.


    lol

    Some people don't need signature to promote there business. Joining forum and having a signature is their secondary perhaps not an option in joining but helping people.

    Google does not have time for that

    I am sure some Google employs are paid to keep tabs on certain IM/SEO forums. IMO, this is not one of them or if they do, it is low on the list of forums they keep an eye on.

    If you mean why do people not share their URL when they have a specific question about a site, it's simple. Let's say you found a niche that has the potential to be fairly profitable. No matter how good you are at internet marketing, there are probably people far better at it than you on this forum. So why invite difficult competition into your niche?

    As for Google having spies... I don't think they are really spies, but I'm sure they monitor popular IM and SEO forums to keep tabs on the latest trends. Why wouldn't they? You can pretty much guarantee that if there is a popular trend in SEO on forums, it is going to get targeted by search engines. Look at the most popular link building methods over the past 4-5 years...

    Linkwheels... Dead
    Forum profile links... Dead
    Public blog networks... Dead or being killed off

    Yes there are. And they will also buy link packets via WSOs, backtrace them and then de-rank the networks.

    It's a lot easier to pay an outsourcer $8 to $10 per hour to lurk on the forums and find people selling links than trying to work out if a link is paid for or not.

    Lol keep on dreaming, in that case my "small" network and a tons of others would already have been deindexed, I only had a deindexrate of 0.16%/month, that's 3 domains over >8 months.

    And what would they really catch, there are not that many people on the WF with their own private network where they sell links, maybe a dozen or so, while there are 10.000's of SEO companies that do not advertise at the forum, you think they are going to buy links from them as well?

    Wake up!

    I've actually spent the last couple of days going through all my backlinks and removing my money site link from threads. Eventually I will remove it from my profile too.

    I don't think anyone would want to compete with me right now. Its too early. And you do need special certification to sell what I sell. But I'm still investing a lot of time and money to dominate the SERPs. So 6 months from now, I may have competitors in my industry, searching my links on here, and that would not be good at all.

    I'm not actually worried about people on WF. I'm worried about people in my niche, most who don't hang out on WF, finding certain posts I've made, that outline many of my strategies.

    Call it paranoia, but I've done so much spying on my competitors, that naturally you start getting paranoid yourself. =]

    Yes there is... No question! WF, BHW, TRT and others are all watched for reactions of propaganda and sneaky tracking. Why try and guess what a crowd of people intend if you can just read their open discussions? True high level marketers know to keep quite about what works! And then maybe in a year when it is dying down sell the idea/technique to others..... Yes it is a dog eat.......

    Posting a link on an IM forum to a money site would be equivalent to throwing yourself in front of a bus.

    There are Google spies all around us. They drive up and down your streets with a unique camera on top of their vehicles.

    Yeah, but there could be another value there that you're missing. You're saying that forum signatures have no SEO value. But if the percentage of returning visitors is a factor, then they do. Right now my percentage is above 40%. That's because I keep on posting in this forum and the same people keep on visiting my site. The same goes for bounce rate. If I'm promoting my website with "useless backlinks" but that improves my bounce rate then that could also effect my rankings in the search engines. It tells Google that I'm not spamming and focusing on a relevant audience.

    I hope this is sarcasm.

    This forum is a fart compared to what Google really cares about.
