    Hi all, really impressed with this site. How it can have remained so hush-hush yet have all this great info is baffling to me, but only moreso about how few people are taking advantage! And I will try not to be one of them.

    A little about me, I'm somewhat skilled in the money-making ways. As a teen, i started out micromanaging transactions in site called gaia online, i just bought ingame stuff, resold it, advertised for other people, and instead of grinding hours in their games or paying physical money for in-game money, i made tons pushing money around.

    It was meaningless since it didn't give any real money, but it gave me an idea to do the same with ebay. At 14-15 i was making about $150 a week(every week i had off, summer, christmas break, etc) It was just little resale things from ebay, and constructing easy, cheap, but good looking things like yugioh deckboxes out of yugioh cards, the same with pokemon.

    Then around 16-19 i began investing into Yu-Gi-Oh, you wouldn't think a children's card game would be so lucrative, but it was. Cards could go from 10 cents to 10 dollars, and i was consistently able to see those rises. I developed a formula and a thread to discuss these rises on pojo (to which this day gets about 15k views every 2 weeks, though they upkeep it now)

    My biggest score was when a new powerful deck came out, and all it's rare pieces were cheap, i stocked up on them, mostly a card called "Wind-Up hunter" I bought over 300 of them for 80 cents apiece, and they eventually sold for $10-$14 apiece. And i had a lot of other situations like that, overall I made about $10k from those times, but i've lost touch with the game and the money was very inconsistent/stressful to achieve.

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm confident in my abilities but I still understand that you guys are the masters, I have a lot of questions, confusion, and anxiety about entering your BlackHat world, and I hope you guys will be willing to help me along :) I'm also a little intimidated by how many people I see banned, so I plan on lurking a bit to understand how to avoid that before I begin posting/trying to contribute.

    I'm mostly interested in youtube marketing, CPAs, and the like. But mostly because those seem like the easiest, simplest ways to get a steady income. If anyone else has any tips though, I'll gladly listen :)

    So with that said, I hope to be able to thrive in your world, BlackHatworld

    (Also it's kinda funny this post was blocked at first because i posted this sites own url )

    A very eloquent introductory post.

    Well done that man (or woman)!

    I've got a feeling we are all going to be hearing a lot more from you in the days,weeks, months and years ahead.

    You put good effort into introductory, you should be fine in the field as well with this diligence.

    Well a little success on my first day. My video "You don't even need pokebank" now comes up first on google when people search "pokebank" a relatively hot topic right now for gamers and pokemon fans. 2k views (5k if you count the one i put up before that i failed to be able to monetize due to a technicality, this one is fine though)

    Not sure if it's really blackhat though, but it's definitely moneymaking!

    Stay committed as you have shown before. You have to develop an expertise in the areas you need to use. Consistent Traffic generation is what we all need to target our offer of value to consumers. Hang in there, learn and apply. My base is organic traffic from Google (SEO) and then I can add other traffic sources.

    Machiavelli says the only people who can't be stopped are fanatics, as they despise life to the point that they will either succeed or perish. Don't be afraid of getting banned - yes they hand them out a lot here, but to succeed you have to take a risk. There is risk in anything. You have to be bold and assertive to take what is yours. The rewards will come in proportion to the challenges overcome.
