    Black hat can make you more faster but is rarely sustainable long term.

    White hat will make you less to begin but can last for a long, long time.

    The general idea with Blackhat is that you get a bigger result for the same amount of effort...because you ignore certain rules. Whether or not it is lucrative depends on your ability to generate conversions...there are people on both sides making six figures or more daily, just as there are people making nothing.

    I prefer blackhat, because I know if I tried some white hat I wouldn't have seen anything for my hard work everyday until maybe a few months down the road..but with blackhat the money rolls in right away :)

    I only consider the real shitty stuff blackhat - malware ads, etc. The true definition would make most website owners blackhat and it doesn't concern me unless I get penalized.

    Putting a $$$ value is pointless but to answer your question, I think an orange is tastier than a cheeseburger.

    Do most blackhatters get caught by the networks in the end? What are the consequences if they find that you have been incentivising offers, putting through fake leads or whatever? Do they sue you or just ban your account?

    Think about it. The most successful and profitible businesses online are "whitehat". Think google, myspace, skype etc.

    Blackhat is way overrated and not a long term strategy. Build a real business and produce real value to people and become rich. Its not rocket science. But too many people want to "get rich quick".

    it mainly depends on how your like.

    if you are searching for long term riches you should do whitehat.
    if you just want to cash in money fast you should do blackhat.

    With BlackHat the risk of getting banned, kicked, bitch slapped increases but the speed of generating revenue increases as well.
