Hi guys, not here posted for a while. Been busy with projects. One tip from my recent experience is stick to one method, or a single niche and make it work. I made some great money and then the method totally dried up... I then set about chasing 100 other ideas and websites... tried about 10% of a method and moved on, not a great move... BHW is full of awesome ideas all which can make good money, but it can cause you procrastinate, and to put 10% into each one, not focusing on one specific project. That gets us no where. Focus is needed on your chosen method. I'd been trying so many different methods all just "a little bit" and I wasn't really banking (we're talking a few dollars a day and maybe then the odd $100 a day) but nothing steady, and nothing which was going to allow me to retire on. Money was leaking out and I needed a fix. The key I've found (just lately) is to focus on your one specific method 100% and push to make it work... I looked at a site I had built a while back and focused and worked on just that for a week and now it's started to bring in more and more money... I know it sounds obvious, but "just do it" isn't always enough, you can just do each new method posted on BHW each day and make $0, as someone will be doing it 100% with absolute focus and that single method alone. Do it, focus, and plan is the key! Doing 100 things at once isn't the way forward... I've learned the hard way.... Focus on the one thing you know will work and forget all the ebooks, new methods etc. This is just going to distract you. Stick to pushing your chosen path forwards... Anyway after finding all of this out the hard way, my funds are all but dried up and I may have to look at getting a full time job again (rubbish I know) but I gotta pay the bills... The reason for this thread is that in the "corporate world" the bridge between blackhat vs whitehat seems to have gotten much closer. Example: Using SENuke to register web 2.0 properties. I know this is a broad question, but with "link building" strategies, and planning out a link building method for a large corporate website, I found that explaining linking strategies in a job interview sounded quite blackhat, but the interviewers didn't seem to think so... A large C class link network Link Wheels Link Pryamids Link Farm Evolution link farms In the corporate world I know these methods are done and used by agencies and large websites, but, is it the "norm" now? I would still class blackhat as: xrumer blasts scrapebox AA posting Forum backlinks (angela & pauls backlinks) But these more "blackhat" methods applied to a spoke of a large link wheel could aid a more "whitehat" method and improve ranking OR is all of the above considered "blackhat"? What I'd consider whitehat, time consuming and pretty ineffective is Whitehat: Posting good articles Article syndication Link baiting Natural link building Since Panda does no one care for the blackhat vs whitehat divide any more, or are the two crossing? Would you add more to these two lists? What are your thoughts? Sorry for the mega post with multiple questions.
