General:

THIS IS THE REAL PROBLEM -

1st World companies use 3rd world 'human' posters to SPAM you to death. Its a whole industry based mostly in SE Asia, including India, Pakistan, China and the Phillipines.

YOU MAY THANK GOOGLE... this is the 'backside'  of SEO wonderfullness

just a thought -

That's an interesting piece of information JonB.  Shocked Thank you for posting it!
I'm sure the YaBB wizards will take that into consideration when YaBB 3.0 is released (if ever!!!!). After all, it is an stimulating challenge for the developers...they are good at playing chess!!!! Wink

Let us know further findings in your Sherlock Holmes endeavours... Grin

No Problemo, I'll keep you and everyone else posted. 

The REAL problem is those 1st world advertisers, just like the 1st world folks with money for drug habits - it may not be their 'fault' per se, BUT they ARE the problem.

This is only accelerated by the 'Social Revolution' that spread crapware at light-speed.

I'm not for shutting anybody down or  'delinking' the 3rd World (although a tempting thought), I'm just a realist.

Good Luck to all
Wink

Understanding how the enemy works yields solutions to stop them. The more they write about their tactics the better.

Absolutely horrible isn't it. It's really aggravating to see people being encouraged to abuse YaBB forums (or any other forum for that matter) in that way.

Put 'em up against the wall I say - just like the dreadful people who developed XRumer:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XRumer

I still think this is the best punishment for them:

He he! Smiley



Regarding this quote from the terrible website linked in the first post:

Quote:
a) Where to drop backlinks:

A Yabb™ forum usually offers you 2 places to drop backlinks:

i) The profile page: You can access this page by logging into your forum account and then clicking on: "Profile=>Contact Information".  

On this page, you will find two boxes:

=> "Website title"

=> "Website URL"

In the first box, you can put in your preferred keyword. In the second box, you can put your website URL in this format:

http://domain.com

OR

http://domain.com/aboutme.html

NOTE: Thus, unlike Vbulletin forums and Punbb forums, Yabb offers you the benefit of an "anchor text link" right in the profile page. I wonder why more people do not switch to Yabb!  (kidding)

I've made a Mod so that you can set a minimum number of posts before members are allowed to link to a website in their profile:

http://www.boardmod.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1319061968

Even though I don't really get their point with "anchor text link", because search engines can't access profile pages anyway, so it wouldn't help SEO whatsoever.
