    How Swedish blackhatter was reported by competitor and what we can all learn from this

    Haha, I guess you're right. I'm probably throwing the 'white hat' term around too often (given what this forum is about, heh). I'm not saying it's better or that it should be favored instead of grey hat/black hat. It's more in terms of a personal challenge if anything. Black Hat still works...

    How Swedish blackhatter was reported by competitor and what we can all learn from this

    Yeah, I actually think so too. If you go the extra mile Google should definitely reward you for it. It'll probably take ages to actually rank (like you described in your other post), but when you start to rank you can probably expect to stick around longer. Yep, it would be quite fun to hit up...

    How Swedish blackhatter was reported by competitor and what we can all learn from this

    Thanks for reading it, I know it takes quite a while to do so, heh :P. Yeah, of course I've been thinking of just continuing with the strategy in niches where people don't really complain/report and that stuff. But to be honest I actually feel more motivated to just see if I can reach the top...

    How Swedish blackhatter was reported by competitor and what we can all learn from this

    Yeah, I've been thinking about it to be honest. I'm not really fond of the idea of managing tons of servers and doing a lot of system admin work though, but that's probably something I can hire someone to do as soon as/if it takes off. Thanks for suggesting it, I should probably take another...

    Hey manny, thanks for reading my blog post! Yes, with the white hat-project I do not intend to build links. I intend to focus all activities on just building an awesome service that delivers value. That means focusing on design, functionality and content instead of spending time acquiring...

    How Sebastian successfully trolled himself out of Google!

    Hey man, thanks for noticing my blog post! There's actually already a thread here on BHW that I've responded to in relation to the blog post. Unfortunately I can't post links here yet, so search for "How Swedish blackhatter was reported by competitor and what we can all learn from this" and...

    How Swedish blackhatter was reported by competitor and what we can all learn from this

    Thanks for reading man. It became a very, very long post, a lot longer than I originally planned it to be. Given that the guy who reported me wrote a lengthy response to the initial blog post I had to respond to his stuff as well. I do hope someone can take something valuable away from the...

    How Swedish blackhatter was reported by competitor and what we can all learn from this

    He actually got attacked twice with negative SEO attacks, neither of them had any real or substantial effect. Yes, maybe those attacks weren't that effective or maybe he's just been very good with disavowing stuff (which I know for a fact he has worked very actively with). And no, I had nothing...

    How Swedish blackhatter was reported by competitor and what we can all learn from this

    He's ranking #1 right now, and he pretty much did so back and forth before I went all black hat as well. So I'm guessing he got a lot of motivation for writing his blog post and getting Matt Cutts involved since I pushed him down from like #1/#2 to #4-#6 :P.

    How Swedish blackhatter was reported by competitor and what we can all learn from this

    Hey! Seb here (the guy that got penalized). Been lurking here for a while so I guess this is the most appropriate time to actually start posting here :P. Something that wasn't obviously clear in the blog post is that I was ranking my sites using two different techniques. I had a set of more...

    Are my article writing expectations to high?

    I've outsourced quite a few articles, and the article you provided is extremely similar to some of the work I've received from my outsourcers - especially those from India/Bangladesh and such. They seem to have their own language, Ingrish (heh), that is just completely and utterly fucked up...

    [New Updated] Market Samurai is The SKITTT!

    Version 0.87 Unfortunately I can't post the direct download link due to triggering some forum whinery, find a previous direct download link from marketsamurai and just replace the version number in the end. Or, probably best, wait for someone that can post the URL here.

    Anyone successfully scraped EzineArticles?

    Well... duh. But what's the actual point of scraping ALL their articles compared to only scraping the ones you actually really need (based on keyword, category etc.)? If you are going to scrape 5 million articles, you definitely got to have really decent indexes on your database otherwise all...

    Anyone successfully scraped EzineArticles?

    What's the point of scraping all their articles? To create an EzineArticles-replica? :)
