    So I happened to fall across a page which looks to be designed to solely make money. I really like the idea of the keywords of the page, its loaded. Would it be immoral to copy their ideas? Being the this is blackhat, the real question would just be, as long as I dont copy their whole site, I change it into my I own wording, my own layout, and just copy their topics, can I get in trouble for it?

    Na thats what society is all really based on... people stealing other peoples ideas and turning them into their own. Ever heard of Einstein? What he said seemed to have stemmed from the Lorenz transformations

    Definitely do it up. Not immoral at all. If noone else did that, there wouldn't be any competition.

    Second thought: double check with me that it's not my niche.

    This is Black Hat World, we don't have morals. Probably not the right place to ask about something being moral or immoral. With that said, you know my answer.

    Moral is individual so do what you feel is right. I'd personally do it in a heartbeat.

    Business doesn't have morals. Business operates with legal and illegal which is decided by law. No law against researching what works for someone else and trying to make it work for yourself. You did the research, you did the discovery now go reap the benefit. That's how business works.

    There's not immoral issue. In fact that is where 'competition' come from.

    I think you're in the right place.

    I suggest going to the White Hat SEO section and reading the stickies; tons of great stuff there. There are some free guides that put most of the ones that you would purchase to shame.

    Of course it's not immoral - in fact I don't see why anyone would consider it immoral.

    I was thinking that also... Me being totally new at all of this, I worry about that... The thing is they have a ton of links on their site that could be very informative, but instead lead to random sites instead of actual info... Of course id at least want to put the actual info on my site.
