I gave a blackhat trick a try a few months ago, but got caught. see post at (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/21957-should-i-quit-blackhat.html) I had inquiries from both the company and affiliate manager. However, I managed to keep my commissions!!!! Sweet!!! There was this big number sitting in my account on the affiliate site for a few anxious months. Well, it's been a while, but the money has finally been deposited in my bank! I sort of paused blackhat stuff in the mean time to see if it would actually pay out. And it did. Wow. I can't believe it. That was the most money I've ever made with the least amount of effort. Maybe it was sheer beginner's luck, but damn that was insane. I feel like writing on ebook about how I got caught but still kept my commissions.... haha.... j/k. Yes, I'm a total noob going on a gloaty success rant, but I hope you old-time pros will indulge me for a moment. And thanks for this super forum!!!
