    Hi all

    I am looking to study Howie Schwartz as I hear from a few good guys he is worth reading/listening to.

    I am not new to IM obviously but always looking to learn more.

    Does anyone who has studied his stuff have an opinion on the best thing to study first, second and so on!!!

    Also what is not worth spending time on would be good

    AND

    if anyone has any other 'MUST SEE' stuff (from anyone) in their opinion - please post as well

    All the best

    oscar....

    IMHO, the guy is overrated. I don't have any of his paid products, but he gives away tons of video content, and from what I've seen, he's all about spamming the search engines with Web 2.0 pages and bookmarks. His strategy is to dominate at least the first page of G**gle with the Web 2.0 stuff. Basically what he does is create a money site and some feeder pages (lenses, hubs, etc.) that link to the money site. To add to that, he creates more feeder pages that link to the first layer of feeders. He (or his hired help) then goes on a social bookmarking spree for each of the feeder pages (and some of the feeders link to other feeders). The goal is not for the money site itself to rank, but for the feeder sites to take over the SERPs, thereby protecting the money site. If something gets de-indexed as a result, it most likely won't be the money site. Nothing earth shattering here.

    Agreed as I just recently dl everything on BHW from H.S.
    Most of which i found I have from multiple other sources.
    The problem is there is so much info on all this (SMO/SEO) stuff its hard to know where to start.

    His BlackHatisBack is

    80% FLUFF
    17% Howie talking about how great Howie is
    3% Awesome Content

    ...but that 3% is worth the money for the course.
