Bringing a site back to life in the SERPs

I have a domain that I used to test some blackhat trackback spam, social networking spam, blog spam, etc with. I was on the first page of some keyword results, 2nd for most. It's been at least a year since I've done anything at all with the site, and my domain has dropped off the rankings entirely for most keywords. What are the things I need to do to get Google's eyes back on my site? Would you suggest continuing those blackhat techniques, or would those in Google's radar by now?

Also, I was watching a video about getting a neglected site back into the rankings and it said to make 10-15 pages of new content. I sell a ebook on my site, so I have a static number of pages. Am I supposed to write articles and create new pages for each article? I'm a little confused on that..

probably your backlinks dont exist anymore just create new ones
Try to get one-way links from high PR authority sites, build open linkwheels, submit articles to eza and goarticles, etc.
Could certainly add a blog and do a bit of posting there. That and some new content and backlinks and that should "get 'er done".

We get it, advertisements are annoying!

Sure, ad-blocking software does a great job at blocking ads, but it also blocks useful features and essential functions on BlackHatWorld and other forums. These functions are unrelated to ads, such as internal links and images. For the best site experience please disable your AdBlocker.
