SEO Chat Dirt – and Forum Poll info.

There’s an article out about why some of the moderators left SEOChat, why the traffic has taken a big ole dip.

A few weeks ago I did a poll called "If you could only read one FORUM which would you choose? "

And I was amazed that SEO Chat was only at 1%. I left SEO Chat maybe a year ago… Since day 1 I’d been a huge lurker there. We even had some some "flaming type stuff" a few times where I’d try to ride in and defend my name and company. <— link to seo chat Jim debates

I was memeber #2 of SEO Chat, and Darrin (creator) and I became competitors ("Google Dance") and friends.  Before Darrin sold it, he offered it to me for a steal….but I was saving for adoption, so I had to pass…..I’ve since always looked at it as "I could have had it", and I was really sad to see the 1% number for people who still "lived" there…man, I wish I could take it over now…..naw….I don’t have time for that!

PS – I never released the results of the "One Forum" poll because 2 days before I pulled it there was some abnormal activity and the sharp spikes at the end skewed what the poll had looked like for a few weeks.
