    :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad: Is he telling the truth???


    Before I became an inbound marketer, I once made $50,000 a month spamming Google. I worked a maximum of 10 hours a week. And I am telling you from the bottom of my heart: never, never ever follow in my footsteps.
    This blog post will tell you exactly why…

    My Mindset in 2009

    I never wanted to spam the Internet. Google made me do it.
    This is what I told myself back then.

    If spamming is so wrong, I wondered, how come it always works so well? Most black hat SEOs think this way. They rationalize spamming Google’s index in so many ways:

    We’re helping Google improve their algorithm!
    Content is king?!? LOL! Links are the only content you need. Google’s lying to people. They deserve to get spammed.
    If we don’t do spam, our competitors will — and then they’ll beat us. We have to spam.
    We’re helping our customers — the little guy — win the battle against a big, bad, evil empire that wants to enslave them to paying PPC costs!

    It's too long, continue reading here: https://readthink.com/confessions-of-a-google-spammer-4f2e0c3e9869#.uu4pcc4r3

    This was probably one of the most interesting reads ive had in a while. I had to stop before the last few paragraphs because i am too swamped with work but it was very interesting.

    Honestly any spammer should read this. Its not saying not to spam, because we do alot of that here. What I got from it is something I also had to learn on a much smaller scale. If you are abusing a legit site for money they may eventually shut it down, and you will wish you have gone legit from the start.

    "Google provides clean search results for free, which truly benefits society. What does spamming the Internet provide for society? It helps two people: the spammer and his customer. Everyone else suffers."

    I have no idea where this feeling of guilt about "benefiting" society comes from.

    "Poor guy", made shittons of money, his method stopped working and all of a sudden, he is a poor guy who's life has no meaning and cares what some "heavy hitters" say. Jesus that's such a pathetic article I want to cry.
