    I think the bass player for tDR is waiting for a Huff as well.

    Yep Charlie, that's one of the ways SEO works. It's one of the top influencers IMHO. Concept goes like "the more other web pages point to this web page, the more important it is".

    EDIT: This is why there are so many "fake" links to web pages, just to get "your" web page ranked higher.
    Google has supposedly addressed this over the years, but for-sure there is a LOT of this still going-on.

    Basic rules for Internet usage 2019: Don't go to ANY other website other than Talk Bass!

    it will hurt, not help. googlebot sees repetition like this as possible spam.

    I’m just trying to get the attention to this thread so potential buyers back off from buying from this criminal, why are you saying that.

    There’s no need to game SEO here; the organic discussion is quite sufficient — and better than any artificial terms, tags or links. Search engines are quite sophisticated and easily detect and discredit attempts to manipulate search results. Google readily thwarts bogus search-optimization tactics from perpetrators far more skilled than bass players.

    I hate this thread so gat-dang much :(

    I mean, more the fact that it exists, but every time I get a "new post" notification my heart sinks a little.

    could you drop (or PM) a name? I lived in Tucson for about six years working at a very prominent guitar shop and I don't recall ever coming across a DH.

    the thing to remember about the BBB is that membership is voluntary. unless you enroll, they're essentially toothless.

    I worked for a company that, unfortunately, ripped off many, many people. we had a couple dings with the BBB but our positive Yelp/Google/word of mouth/manufacturer reviews vastly outnumbered them. even when we transitioned from "respectable establishment" to "shady as frak" there was never a mention of the BBB. not once.

    after what - 18 years of this poopie? - DH still has an A+ rating. the system does not work.

    This it's one of my favorite parts of this thread...... in Australia a DH is short for a D@#k Head

    Just for kicks I did a Google search. I typed Darr, and the first three hits were this thread.

    In fairness, that's because google is smart and knows that your cookies show that you've looked him up before.
