Not really. Content is fresh, spam is almost non-existent, quality is reasonably high.

Either GoogleBot or Google FeedFetcher are logged in every time I log in, which is usually multiple times a day (often permanently, with refreshes).

I just checked the who's online record, too:

Registered users: Bing [Bot], Google [Bot], Google Feedfetcher, MSN [Bot], profitclinic

Nice to see Bing and MSN bots crawling the forums as well.

Google Bot crawls web pages.

Google Feedfetcher crawls RSS feeds.

Yes, Google and other search engine bots have "lived" on this forum for many years. However, the reason is not simply because this forum is active; rather, it is because it is active with good content. There are hundreds of thousands of forums that have been overrun with spammers, porn posts and spam links. I have watched them die on the vine due to lack of forum moderation and time. Some get hundreds of posts per days. However, neither Google nor any other search engine lives on those forums. Instead, they have been docked by the search engines for their spam.

We have John Counsel to thank for doing such an incredible job of moderating these forums. He volunteered many years ago and has been extremely diligent and committed in his efforts to keep things on the up-and-up here. Trust me, I know how much time he has to put into moderating on a daily basis. His efforts have paid off for everyone here. This has become a safe forum for newbies and advanced entrepreneurs, alike, where people can get quality information, express their views and offer their expertise.

Please help us get the word out about this forum ( http://www.HomeBusinessOnline.com/forum/ ) to people that are truly looking for opportunities to learn and to share about small business and starting and doing business from home. Thanks!

Thanks, Heidi :D

The nature of forum threats has changed in the past year or so, from blatant spammers, who were so obvious and stupid that they were easy to spot and ban, to today's more subtle (mostly — they're still basically stupid or they wouldn't do it) breed of SEO spammers, mostly from Asia (from Pakistan and India to Korea and Indonesia and all countries in between) and Eastern Europe (former Soviet bloc countries).

In the past six months, more than 80% of new members and posters on these forums have been suspected (or confirmed) SEO spammers. This is why you may have noticed Moderator comments like this appearing on so many posts:

I prefer a policy of "enough rope" when dealing with suspected SEO spammers — I put them in a special "hole" (moderator watch list) and monitor their posts, letting down a length of rope with a noose on the end (a chance for them to show who they really are). Then I pull the rope up when I've seen enough posts for me to make a reliable judgement call.

The smart ones get the message and put their FEET in the noose to get a safe ride to the top.

The dumb ones put their NECKS in the noose.

Either way, everyone gets at least one chance to prove themselves. The choice is theirs, entirely.

Nice job, Homebusinessonline.com! Keep the quality up is not an easy job and can be thankless, too.

I like this:

As I have heard that Google loves fresh content, Forums are the main way of discussion till know and keep on updating almost every hours.. So whenever Google bots see the limited amount of freshness on forums, it crawls that particular forum..

Do you agree with me point of view as far as my knowledge is concerned, If I am wrong please correct me. @profitclinic..
