I am a relative newbie to IM and have tried to make money with traditional methods. I have been a member of the Warrior Forum and Wealthy Affiliate for about 6 months. Pretty much, it's the whole use XSitePro or Wordpress to build some sites and monetize them thing. Sure, you can make decent money like that, but I feel competent, technically inclined Blackhatters tend to do better financially. Most Wealthy Affiliate alums that are successful are guru types like Justin Brooke (I like my anonymity) or bum marketers that spend hours and hours churning out blogs and new content. Since, I've used nothing but XSitePro, I am not only a IM newbie, but a technical newbie. Rather than asking dumbass question after dumbass question, begging to get flamed, I figure I just need to buckle down and get a good technical foundation. People on BHW like to tell noobs to use the search feature and read the posts, but sometimes I can't understand some of the technical jargon. So, I've come to realize if I want to thrive in blackhatting, I need to become stronger technically. I didn't join ********** or BlackHat University because I knew the technical jargon would just fly over my head. My goal is to move into Blackhat CPA full steam ahead, by the summer. I'll just do some article marketing with niche sites and blogs, Associated Content and keep trucking along with my good ole 9-5, until I feel competent enough do dive off into the deep end of the pool. Can anyone suggest a good technical regimen or individual software programs I should learn to become a proficient Blackhatter? By the way, I'm enrolled in a HTML class and will be taking PHP, when that is done. All input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
