    Congrats to Brett. Not sure about the other forums on WMW, but Google forum is definitely dying. Most of the participants are managing not more than 1k daily traffic. E-comm is dominating in all discussions. Hourly sales reports flood everything. And on top of that - all possible conspiracy theories. Mods can't do anything, because they will be the only contributors, if they will stop it. Furthermore, the whole format is totally outdated. Vague discussions worked before Panda. It was enough time to talk with one major update in 2-3 months. Now, when the updates come day-by-day, only precise information helps. New owner must be really talented to make this work again. Hope Brett got the funds already ) ------------------------------------ on WMW from 2002 ... nowadays consider visits of it as a stupid behavior

    lost cause

    Exactly, discussing free traffic is a lost cause, Google has rigged everything: Pay to Play.
