    Man, takes me back to the good old days of cloaking, pingback spamming, easily building 1000s of domains on blogger.com, etc. Good stuff

    Judge ordered him to stay at least 1000 ft away from where tons of kids gather. Sadly, that means he can't hang around BHW any more :(

    That was before me and I browsed for a long time even in '06 I only registered when the download section started only letting you view so many threads per period of time and I first started experimenting more heavily with BH money making as opposed to WH SEO. This forum really exploded and I hadn't thought of how small it really was when I first stumbled on it. Great post man!

    It's pretty sweet, you can still go and look around at some of the threads. Wish I started in IM then, I was too busy partying and playing counterstrike.

    Some things never change.

    I don't think so..after all the main purpose for all of us using black hat is to make some money out of it..unless some one uses it as a test bed or out of hate for google...[​IMG]

    But the point Black Hat made is valid...u don't want it so visible that ppl leave ur site like that...u would want them to leave probably by clicking an ad...and I was once told by a senior bh...make ur ads the most beautiful thing on the page...[​IMG]

    u just want spiders to visit...

    hope this helps

    Cheers !

    A lot of money was made back then, a lot of money, well i think the golden years were 07-09. The "Ebay" years. Im pretty sure some people still living off money they made back then.

    Sounds like it, tough to say cuz before you had less competition but now you have more people buying stuff online.

    Wow that takes you way back.

    Check this out, apparently there was a poll to make BHW a paid membership forum-
    http://web.archive.org/web/20081202...ons-feedback/37942-closing-off-bhw-world.html


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Do you want to close off BHW to non-members?
    Vote above!

    Yes: Please close off BHW to visitors I don't mind paying a small fee.

    No: Please keep BHW open to the public I like it the way it is.


    If so only members who pay a negliable fee of say $9 or $19 a month would have access to BHW forums. Executive VIP members would be exempt from fees since they have contributed in the past. Current donors would be given a 4 month free pass. Search engines would be allowed to spider the forum but would not "cache" anything thus we would not loose any traffic.
