    Blackhat is not dying and it will never die. Things change everyday so there will be new loophole, but strangely I felt Blackhat is fading, at least for me, because many of my friends who were damn good at it quit and get a proper job.

    Compare to 3 yrs back, we were banking hard when seo is gamable. What's now guys? blackhat these days aren't as interesting as in the past.

    Lead Generation is the best niche to make money fast and consistently. And there are so many opportunities and niche's within this, almost impossible to over saturate and stay legit without worrying if the next google update is going to wipe your business off the table.

    Well as many know, BlackHat work makes people a little stressed, so most move unto whitehat later on. But on a real note it doesn't really matter, you will be good at anything you really try. paid ads and SEO are still the blackhat king methods.

    What's "a proper job"? Dotsya doesn't understand this concept.

    People give up too easily. If you aren't prepared to spend 100+ hours a week working for months on end, then you don't want it badly enough.

    I remember the internet in the 90s and quite frankly, there was nothing special about what people were doing back then. In fact, it was more annoying trying to figure out how to market to people. Those long time black hatters have forgotten how frustrating it was before mobile phones and social networks, even though it was easier to rank pages from the get go.

    Not so many people even had an internet connection. How about the fact that you had to design your own website with HTML and/or CSS/PHP? I never liked how everything looked back then, especially with those poor quality gifs and jpegs.

    Nowadays you can get millions of people to see your posts at once and if you know what you are doing, you will always get traffic.

    I can set up a Weebly store site in 30 minutes that looks better than what big companies had in the mid 00s. What exactly is the problem? Making money online didn't become more difficult - people just got lazier (and spoiled).

    A proper job is a respectable job that pays well and is stable. You can still make alot of money from IM and other sources while having a proper job contrary to popular believe on BHW.

    Blackhat is dead. In fact, Blackhat, being a term and not a living thing, it was never alive to begin with.
    And yes, I am fun at parties.
