Threadwatch Blog Closes Down

Jun 26, 2007 • 9:08 am | comments (5) by twitter | Filed Under SEO & SEM Forum News

The SEO community is suffering a big loss. Aaron Wall has announced on Threadwatch that he is closing down the site on Friday for a number of reasons: bad publicity, edgy news, gossip, decentralization, spam, and having other priorities in life.

Aaron is happily in a relationship now, so I really cannot blame him. However, the news has come as a shock to the Threadwatch community, many of whom are asking Aaron to change his mind.

Threadwatch was nearly three years old, having been founded on October 5, 2004 by Nick Wilson who then sold it to Aaron Wall in November of 2005. Over the course of time, Threadwatch has been a centralized part of many SEOs/SEMs to find the latest news and discuss some of the more controversial topics of the industry. It was a hub with some very good information, and I personally am sad to see it go.

I wish Aaron and the other Threadwatch moderators the best.

Threadwatch forum discussion continues at Threadwatch -- until Friday, I suppose.

Surely he should sell it on rather then letting it go to waste.

The post on threadwatch could actually be some sort of link bait, as there's probably going to be more comments over that post than on any other post that the site has ever had. There might actually be enough of an 'uproar' that Aaron decides to keep it up and running. Who knows? Only time will tell. And if it's really true that it's being shut down and isn't being shut down, then that's going to be the best link bait--ever.

I was thinking that as well, but didn't want to say it Bill.

The smart thing wold be to sell it. These may be a ploy just to send out feelers to see if anyone is interested with out sounding desperate.
