I'm new to the site, as well to the whole concept of I.M./S.E.O. and am trying to learn about it. I've read a few threads on various forums, and a thread on this forum about a White Hat teaching the fundamentals/basics of I.M./S.E.O. I'm helping a friend with his first website, and getting it launched and making money. It's a product based site, and to be honest the competition is a little tough, but not unmanageable. A little about my background, I did "marketing" and "sales" in nontaxable businesses, have done telemarketing, sales jobs, and service jobs. I also know my way around Photoshop, and am working on phones now (Android). Anyways, I'm interested in learning all I can from this community and hopefully giving back to it once I have the capabilities and the knowledge to do so. I want to mostly dabble in the Black Hat area, and getting high traffic to sites. I have a plan and an idea for my own site, but I'm going to help my friend with his first. Well.....drop a line, and a hint.
