    Ok, I'm (relatively) new to blackhat, in that I haven't made much money with it yet. I've research a little bit, but the biggest problem is knowing where to look.

    I know that most people don't want to reveal their successful techniques because of what can happen when they do...

    Can ANYONE point me in the right direction to learn a technique that is relatively successful? I'm looking for at least an extra $500 per month. This seems easily attainable, right?

    I'm just a lowly newb looking for quality advice...for free...cause I'm broke....
    (which is WHY I'm doing blackhat :| )

    Help me, and I will send a million packets of Love to you to dump in your coffee in the wee hours that you blackhatters like to do business. ;)

    if you aim just for 500 $ per month, then it is sufficient just to take one single method exposed here or in ebooks and make it. You do not need to much, just think a little bit, what appeals mostly to you, how much work you are planning to put in and stuff like this.
    If you have no idea about anything about marketing, then start with adsense, domain parking or other cpc ads. It is much easier to make people click some ads, than make them buy something or complete offers. When you will grow a little bit, you will see that this stuff is just for kids.

    I've been using whitehat techniques for a few years and have decent experience in marketing, etc. Obviously, they haven't helped much.

    I've used the Craigslist method and Torrent (non-passworded-rars). While I'm still using them, I need one technique that isn't so well known that it's potential is diluted, but is still successful enough to supplement my income.

    Thanks for your reply!

    You might want to look into getting a second job until you get your feet wet. No one's going to just GIVE you a way to make $500/month of steady income. Why would they?

    Yeah, I wouldn't expect them to. It's totally understandable. I was hoping maybe someone would say "Hey, this guy deserves a break. Let me make his day." :(

    I know that's not likely to happen. Until then, I'll just keep plugging away. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to give up just because no one will help me. I also understand there's a difference between helping me and giving me a surefire cash machine. Ugh, that sounds too ebooky.

    And now, it's a new day, and a new opportunity to strike that proverbial goldmine. So, for now, I read!

    PS. If anyone could at least help me find some good reading material, I'd be happy in pants! Wikipedia has been useful up to this point, but I'm looking for more of the nitty-gritty. And don't say "Google it"....cause I google everything.. :eek:

    My one bit of advice is:

    You got to spend money to make money!

    When you spend the money on an ebook or whatever take action and implement, dont just read, take action!

    i think that is the problem many people have when starting out, they BUY (waste money) on ebooks that have techniques that have been in use for a while and usually are no longer able to generate profits because their outdated and useless by then.

    This is right. Why are people selling these ebooks? Because the techiques don't work any more.

    I'm new here too and I"m in a similar situation as theprovider777, as I was told by a member here....the best way to make black hat money is to come up with your own techniques.
    I have found that you can get the jist of many BH techniques from reading these forums, so use them as inspiration and improve them or come up with something different.

    That is what I"m attempting to do. I'm learning something everyday and trying new things...one day I'll come across what works for ME.

    That is the sturggle. Finding what will work for YOU.

    I know this is little help and the "pep talk" isn't really what theprovider777 is looking for, but this is what I've observed.

    Thanks for the helpful advice! Yeah, I've read countless "SUPER SECRET TECHNIQUES" that just don't work anymore...

    I've seen many people here saying that $10,000/month is "small time" ... I understand this isn't a fortune, but jesus...I would be ECSTATIC to make that much. But, like I said, $500 extra per month would SAVE my ass.

    I would try promoting my own products, etc...but I guess I'm not creative enough for that.. Eh, I may not be creative enough, but I'm determined enough, so I'll give it a go eventually...I just don't know WHAT to promote.

    Oh well, I'll figure it out. Thanks for all the advice!

    I'm right there with ya. If $10K is chump change, I'll take it. My goal is 1-2K month to help make ends meet.

    Take a product and make it better, that's how many fortunes are make. Just gotta find what works for you...I'm still looking for what's gonna get the job done for me, but I know its out there so I just keep looking.

    Once you have 15 posts, mosey on over to the downloads section and download everything you can get your hands on. They may be ebooks, and some of it may be rehashed BS, but looking through these ebooks, tutorials, and other programs, and understanding the point of what they're trying to accomplish, may give you a better understanding of what's going on and what you need to do. Also, take a look at the forum categories at the top-left of the page. Those threads should give you a general idea of some of things you'll need to read about. Be prepared to spend at least a month doing nothing but reading just to get your cherry popped. Take baby steps, baby.

    this is very good advice. read all the ebooks you can that you can get without shelling out $. while paying for outdated techniques is a bad idea, reading them for free is a good one, because although some of the stuff might not work now, at least you will know the history of some of the stuff and how they "evolved" into newer stuff as time goes on. it's always a good idea to know your "history" of where things came from and find out why they may not work no more, and maybe figure out something different to do with it to make it work again for just a little while.

    Yes, The ebooks can be used as a reference to help you create your own technique or product. Then after you use it and it works well you can make your own ebook and sell it ;)

    essential_clix and gts6, that's the best advice I've heard yet. It's actually what I've been doing, but I suppose I was just being impatient. Wish me luck, and I'm going to stick around for a while and start participating more. I can't wait until my 15th post! :D

    most of the blackhat techniques are formed by combining already existing stuff. For instance, try to combine two outdated blackhat techniques which together form a new techniques which works. Take the monetizing program and organization from a technique and the traffic source from another one. For instance, everyone knew about the torrents, everyone knew about the cpa programs, but the first one who coupled them together made a killer with them. Not sure if you understood me....

    In many of the 'outdated' ebooks, etc., u can find some fundamental principles that can still be 'tweaked' a bit for current usage.

    Adwords is good for some large-scale advertisers and enterprises, though, if there are other places that get much better 'targeted' traffic. Ain't no fun spending $500 per day to get 2000 visitors and 0 purchases. Pure madness.

    Think: Critical Mass + Users = $$$.
