    Analytics are so easy to get compared to years ago, I remember when search engines were completely dumb and you had to have skill to get the actual search results you were looking for.

    I agree, In many ways internet has changed to worse, Its like everything is controlled now, all the hackers have started to work for google. And when you search on google you get some really stupid results like lists how to accomplish something with super obvious tips, and idiots thanking the writer. I miss the good ol kazaa filesharing days,

    I think running and gunning, making money on free traffic, using a little trickery and such is fun but it isn't how you run a business long-term. It is kinda like when you hear an old rich rapper like Jay Z who use to be a crack dealer talking about how much more fun he had when he was in the streets vs faking Tidal spins and teaming up with corporate America. I think that a lot of us who went through the more hustle phase of internet marketing were forced to become more legit due to how IM has changed over the years. Many of us ran to offering services when things got a little more difficult and that has changed how we run our non-service based ventures as well.

    Remember the rampant days of cookie stuffing EPN, Craigslist bombing CPA leads, and e-whoring via Facebook?

    I feel what you mean OP. Although I'm rather young compared to most of you, only doing IM since a few years. Anyone who wants to be really successful nowdays must be super forward thinking, understanding the dynamics of the web. I suggest all you to not give in for "blackhat overautomatization". We have to mask our ads as real content and bait the users to generate conversions. But "first-world" users are evolving above simple methods. This will cause a natural selection among us. Some will stay, some won't.
