    Just a blast from the past moment here guys.. I can remember a couple of years ago when I first started getting interested in SEO I came across a guy on the web called Grizzly who supposedly was making millions from monopolizing free blogspots blogs and spamming the crap out of the www with cheap backlinks. He was looked upon as an hero to SEO n00bs and I was just wondering if anyone else had come upon his sites and if there was any truth behind his claims. Like I said just sitting here pondering... lol ;)

    Not sure, I have never looked. His website used to be called howtomakemoneyonline or something like that. His claims sounded exciting, just never saw any proof lol

    ya i know everything about grizz

    basically ya did make a bunch of money with free blogs

    had a top 3 position for the keyword 'make money online'
    had a pretty active 'instructional blog' for a while

    then there was a crackdown and several blogs were nixed - including his

    he has a couple other 'instructional sites' now - but he doesn't really update much

    from the sounds of it, he's pretty much sworn off gray hat / black hat stuff and in his last post said that he doesnt build backlinks anymore.

    e.g. he's traded rote backlink building for more "traditional marketing"

    he still makes bank form his own adsense network but also sells his seo consultant time pretty high price.

    he doesnt really seem to want to teach or post much anymore. cant blame him really. he's made his money so why talk about it.
