    Can you all recommend some effective grey hat techniques? I don't mind the risk level as long as the reward is there.

    Greyhat is a loose term for me. Everything non-scam is grayhat imo. And this forum is filled with it.

    What is your niche? No need to be specific about it, just some idea.... Really if you're selling mansions in Beverly Hills or Viagra require two very different strategies, black, white or whatever grayhat means.

    Too broad. BHW is the broad answer.

    What you're asking is like asking, "I need to get across town, can you give me a suggestion as to how?" - You could drive a car, take a bus, take a taxi, ride a bicycle, walk or even pogo-stick as just some methods. Similarly you are asking a VERY broad question and expecting some suggestions when we have no idea of who you are, where you're from, what you have available to you or what you have experience in.

    How about looking through the Money Making section and read until something strikes your interest - and then try that? There are thousands of methods on here and only you can determine which of them feels more right to who you are.

    Does that help any?

    Well I could certainly do that, but I was looking for some input from members who have actually used some grey hat services and wanted to recommend them :)

    Very difficult to get into especially because Google is your nr. 1 competitor. Google is in all the travel niches, from hotels to air fares, etc....

    I've worked in the travel biz more than a couple years, Google is the nr. 1 predator.

    EDIT: Which by the way should be looked at by authorities, since there's obvious conflict of interests there, their search, the ads and their participation in a lot of the online services....

    My client was at the top of the search results, but recently got hit by Penguin 2.0. Figuring out ways of bringing him back to the top. He' getting desperate :0

    Google will nuke every successful independent travel site. Whether it's penguin, panda, whatever....you name it, Google will not let you grow in the travel biz. Might as well let your client know. If you're not Expedia or some other big guy and you don't have the firepower to fight Google, might as well stay out.

    It sounds very much like that's the only option. I hadn't even realized or noticed that about Google & travel, thanks for the info ;)

    Join WF. Sell some e-books, rip off everybody there, saying it's all white-hat. There's your Greyhat.

    I guess this is another Warrior forum thing? Who's ripping who off how and who should i be cautious of? (pm me if you don't want to post public but I'd appreciate a bit of a clue what to avoid there)
