    I've been reading around, and although I plan on being mostly whitehat (for blogs, which I will write about what hobbies I enjoy in life) - I must say its tempting to go blackhat, as long as it stays within my moral boundaries of not ripping people off..

    One thread I read, was on making a Review page for products, and having your affiliate reference for buying said product linked; which is a pretty standard method obviously.. Im sure theres thousands of these pages out there, but obviously with most people just wanting to make a quick buck, they are most likely all pretty low quality and spammy..

    Now if I was to do a similar sort of idea; promoting a product in a positive way which actually didnt look like spam to even the trained eye (in other words, actually spend time on the page to make it look great, and articles well written on the subject along with reviews which are persuasive) - I wouldnt trick people into buying products; but actually try to provide them with enough evidence on why the product is worth buying.. does this really help at all or would I be wasting my time?

    In other words, Does a quality well-built page matter/rank better over a crappy spam site using EMD or tons of keywords and unnatural rank boosting from paid services and backlinks?

    Just trying to understand if I should spend my time making something i'd be proud of (and not spam/tricks), not just another 15 minute job like the next person.. But if I spend 10ish hours on a page to make it authentic and it still won't outrank someone who spent 15 minutes, thats kinda discouraging.

    (also, with these kind of sites, should I use different IP/emails/paypal/etc from my whitehat blogs? even though I want them to be legit, I dont wanna get in any trouble and have everything banned, even my whitehat blogs..)

    Is there any other ideas for legitamate type of pages that can be run with an affiliate/seller without triggering google for spam/sandboxing? or is that generally all considered spam by google?
