    Okay, so during my senior year I have a project which I can do over anything that interests me, so I decoded to do blackhat/whitehat marketing. The problem is, I need a good "research question". I can't think of one, can anyone help me out?

    Hi Zakk,

    I would maybe focus on the difference between the two. Many people do not understand what whitehat and blackhat are.

    Also many people have misconceptions about blackhat.Some people think, blackhat is really bad and illegal. (Not me) But judging how others talk about BH on other forums, you can really get an idea of how misinformed others truly are.:)

    Hello Zakk

    I have the exact some thing at school.
    We need to start our own business and I wanted to do a internet marketing project.
    I will be subscribing to this thread and I will follow it up.
    I've been doing some video marketing lately and if it brings results I'm gonna use it.

    I think I may do something along the lines of "What is the differences of black hat and white hat internet marketing?"

    But my problem is, I am going to have to keep my oral presentation at the intelligence level of a toddler because the teachers in my school are so computer illiterate....

    Based on what you just said I would suggest more along the lines of "What is Internet
    Marketing?" lol, it seems like if you start bringing up Whitehat and Blackhat you're just
    going to get a lot of blank stares and probably a B if you paper is longer than a page.

    Do a case study on building a niche affiliate site and getting it to rank with some basic
    SEO tactics like linkwheels and article submissions.

    Do the question you stated above and make two sites - one black hat with sneaky adsense placement etc, a couple BH ones with CPA Lead, deceptive adsense and banners, maybe an autoblog, ya know.

    If you guys need sources maybe we could work something out.

    I run a professional SEO company now. Back when I was in high school I wrote a book on internet marketing for my independent study.

    I'm sure I could help you guys ace your way through the assignments.

    ... I also have a lot of experience black hat and white hat.

    I may just take you up on that, I could always say I got the information from an interview of an internet marketer or something. Expect a PM when I need it :p
