    it has been 3 yrs i try out this blackhat. overall i think it's fun but i will stop taking it seriously, instead my focus will be some solid skills. i work as a web developer full time and hoping to create a solid business one day. Why i gave up blackhat and decided to build something solid? because solid business is more realistic. Don't get me wrong, I didn't say blackhat won't work but i feel like it's a toy and did not solve any real world problem. My prev income were about 70k usd profits but let it be the past because things change so fast, so I believe solid skill like programming will have more advantage.

    You've gotta keep up with the times mate. Like, is Instagram the reigning king right now? Then you fucking hustle IG. Is it Pinterest? Then you hustle Pinterest. It's all about the swing, you've just gotta stay in the loop.

    I used to be in black hat but those were the good old days. After Google came and wiped everything out, my business suffered losses and i did try to pick up but it never was that good. Thus, i went into brick and mortar business and now my business is making more than what i used to do in black hat. Im now thinking of expansion

    Who says BH and solving real world problems can't go hand in hand? Who says BH is about skirting around the rules for collecting change?
    wtf is even BH when it comes to marketing generally (not just SEO)?

    1. Set up portfolio + a linkedin showcasing your skills.
    2. Search out the Linkedin contacts thread here and add 1000+ contacts so your Linkedin looks legit.
    3. Start applying for gigs on Freelancer, Upwork, Craigslist, and all of the IM forums.
    4. Profit.

    Note: If steps 1-3 do not lead to step 4, improve your portfolio and edit the copy you use to apply for gigs.

    Cheers!

    None of it "lasts". You get in, make a couple thousand, rinse your hands, and get out.

    If you can't make money programming then you're a lost cause.

    Programming and blackhat are the same thing.
