Just curious who here no longer visits WHT (webhostingtalk)
Following on from the ‘who no longer visits LET’ post, I wonder how many people here ever bother with WHT?
I on occasion post adverts there, I VERY rarely get any sales from it, a handful a year if that, I really only post ads ther because it has good search engine visibility.
There was a more private discussion around it a while ago, as part of that I offered 1 year of hosting for $0.01 all you had to do what reply to the advert on WHT to qualify, I got 1 reply.
I also tracked the view numbers on WHT of a number of adverts, they all increment at almost identical numbers of views at exactly the same time at a random minute within a 120 minute period.
If you want him the view count on the adverts of any kind you will see a completely incremental pattern based on post time, which initially I.e first few hours would not be surprising but this continues for days and weeks which is so suspicious.
So I am interested on other peoples thoughts, I suspect WHT is a dead duck pretending to quack for ad revenue.
Especially interested in anyone that goes there to look at the adverts and also those that have ever paid for adverts there.
I honestly remember about it maybe once a month, if I go, I only go to post an advert.
9 years or so ago I could almost guarantee 5 replies to an advert and 10 sales, these days I get 0 replies and near enough 0 sales, even on the occasion I post a ridiculous offer just to see if HUMANS are looking, I suspect they are not.
