256 Kilobytes VS Warrior Forum VS BlackHatWorld – What’s the best SEO forum?

If you’re anything like me, talking to like-minded individuals and people in our industry who are doing well for themselves is probably very important to you, as it’s pretty much the only way to stay on top of things and what actually works and what doesn’t.

Now, where do you find these people? What even counts as a high-quality community? Is it volume of content, content quality, freedom of speech, what?

Disclaimer: I absolutely despise BlackHatWorld, so this article will be as biased as they get, and I personally don’t think BHW deserves any better. Their corruption and incompetence to run a forum somehow got me involved in forum politics I never wanted to take part in. This is a forum that a year ago banned me with no prior (or even as much as an infraction, for that matter) based on an “anonymous tip”. It’s a place you absolutely shouldn’t even consider running any sort of long term business ventures on, as it’s very likely that it’s not going to end well – even if you have had dozens of positive reviews, and have contributed in content creation, much like I did.

If you’ve been following my newsletter, you probably know that I’ve been sharing stuff fromĀ 256 Kilobytes for a while now. I myself am on there and helping to grow the forum. The owner has been investing heavily in content creation, and if you would rather take a break from stupidity and cancerous SEO advice, you’re more than welcome to come check it out.

Anyway, let’s get on with the actual comparison in terms of SEO content, shall we? What’s a better way to do that than a good old-fashioned comparison chart, I figure:
