after spending some time here, I wanted to say that I found this forum to be the most down to earth I have visited. This forum aims to discuss realistic techniques and discuss the SEO news in a very sensible way, which makes it much more valuable in my eyes.
Other forums do have a bias towards search technology and algorithms which this one does not seem to have to that degree, and are very valuable from a different point of view but there is sometimes confusion in those. People challenge each other a lot, which is good but tiring at times!
I enjoy all of the forums that I visit very much, and learn something from each and every one, but this is I must say is a haven of calm!

Here's the secret to our success, I believe...
It's all in the moderators. Where some forums like to have moderators with diverse opinions on things, we make a special effort to ensure that our moderators generally use the same basic SEO/SEM methods.
This is not to say that we all agree all time time. But we generally do provide a united front to the public. This way people don't come away confused as much as they might at other forums. We have all been in the biz a long time, and we are confident in what works and what doesn't.
Plus, each of our moderators brings their own areas of expertise, which builds upon the knowledge of the other moderators.
And as a plug for our seminars, it's the same way for the same reason. Where at some conferences the attendees may come away more confused then they started due to so much conflicting info, with ours there is no confusion. Just a great blueprint for success!
This forum is just about to hit its 2-year old birthday, and in its 2 short years, I don't think we've had any moderators leave in disgust, which I also think is unusual for a forum (having been at many through the years). In fact, we've had very few leave at all even due to being too busy or out of the biz. I think that speaks volumes to the great community we've all developed here!
Anyone have any good ideas for a special HRF bday celebration?

I'm somewhat of a forum junkie myself, but more and more I find myself not wanting to get involved with the namecalling and contradictory info you often find elsewhere... this really is home for me!

I think you got it, Jill.
Amazingly helpful, knowledgable, patient and articulate mods in every forum.
And it's reassuring to get a real sense of consensus among the mods as the crew contributes to threads across different topics.
This is the only place I come to regularly. As Scottie said, it's home!

Although at times I must admit I found Jill sometimes harsh (I don't know if anyone else noticed this about her) but Jill and all the mods where fair and willing to help where as other forums it was a bit clicky and dictatorial.
If you want clear good advice with no ego or bullshit this is the place to come.

I appreciate that especially when it is such sound advice.
I write very little here, but keep absorbing and absorbing and there's always more and it's all so worthwhile.
for all of you, my hats off.

But i still needed a forum! I found Highrankings.com and 3 other IM forums. HighRankings.com is my preferred forum. I post very little in other forums and consider this my home too.
Thanks all for making this a great place! And far more productive than online games!

Here's another secret...
I'm only harsh to get people to think.

Sometimes I don't exactly agree with the way you get your point across but I do always appreciate the point you are trying to make. And I have learned a lot from this forum and all the experts here. Thanks!

I know that style doesn't always win me friends, but I'm not out to win friends. I'd much rather say things to make people think, and sometimes (at least in my opinion) you have to say it in a way that kinda slaps them in the face if you really want them to think! :slap:
BTW, if you ever met me in real life, you'd see that pretty much the last thing I ever am with anyone is harsh. I don't even know how to be harsh in person. But it's easy to be big and tough behind the safety of my keyboard!

Everyone's personality is different in different contexts.
And BTW, I know I don't know you personally, but I kinda do feel like I know you through the forum. Don't worry about being "harsh". The point of the forum is for people to learn, and you teach us well.

I really agree with what you have to say here and while I sometimes tend to take the harshness personally I have to say that how we interpret what others are trying to say is our own baggage. I think what you offer is amazing and I am so grateful for all the advice you have given me. I also agree that you are not at all harsh in person, I had the pleasure of having lunch with you in Seattle during the conference and I found you very enlightening and so damn sweet. How was your birthday?
