    I'm aware of blackhat strictly for money making purposes, but are there techniques that are really successful for social media / reaching real people?

    Most blackhat techniques are all about reaching real people...that's how the money is made. You can't reach anyone sitting on page 5 of Google...

    Similarly, you won't reach anyone if you only have 10 followers on you social media account and only gain a few each day the organic/whitehat way.

    I use techniques on a 'real' business.

    It works and being #1 rather than even #3 or #4 makes an enormous difference to my wallet.

    Please pick one of the answers below:

    1. No - this site (which is the 451st most popular website in the world according to Alexa) is a scam. No-one here has ever made a penny - yet we come back day after day just making shit up.
    The service section is full of deals, many of which have had thousands of buyers that have never made anyone but the vendor a penny or cent - yet people keep coming back and buying them again.
    It really is a mystery isn't it?
    I look at my SEO blogs promoted using methods that people talk about here and see 30,000 unqiue visitors a day and know that Google analytics is lying to me as well.
    When someone leaves a comment or buys a product from my site I know it's not real. The feds are buying my product to mess with my head - I'm part of a "Trueman Show" style social experiment.
    In fact no-one else on this forum is real and I can't say much more than that as I have to go and wrap another 20 meters of tin foil around my head to stop my brain waves from escaping and being read by the "fish people" that actually run this world of ours - but maybe your in denial about that as well.

    Or....

    2) Yes of course they fucking are.

    Delete as applicable. :)

    Black hat technique is not effective and if you will follow the black hat technique Google will penalize your website and also flagged your links. After the update of 2.0 the concept of SEO is changed now only work on the white hat techniques that will increase the ranking of your keywords.

    Please tell me you are joking, or have you not yet realized that all the top niches are dominated by pure blackhat spammed to fuck websites?

    Damn Scritty, I didn't mean to offend you or anyone on the forum, or how you got about your business. As someone new to all this I just asked an honest question.

    Blackhat techniques are very effective. How do you think 95% of the people on this forum are making money? If you guessed whitehat, you are wrong.

    Two different concepts: blackhat and... work.

    You need both.

    For a lot of people, blackhat is "win money without effort". This is THE wrong statement.

    Lol not offended at all buddy.

    Lots of ways to make cash on the internet - but long term they all require a little work or a lot of brainpower (the latter is better)

    Different people have different opinions about this. This is very subjective question. I suggest you find what works for you. Go to making money section on this forum

    Yeah there is. But you will end up causing a lot of trouble to a lot of people who will curse you to death.

    Do it the legit way. Provide value and you will be good.

    Basically all the SEO is blackhat :) it's about how smart are you doing it. It's effective if you make it look like natural and you generate traffic.

    Dont worry on hats just do hard work and SEO. I dont think white hat /black hat is there as there is one word SEO and yes last poster said right thing all seo is blank hat in eyes of Big G.

    Just make sure you keep your strategies timely updated with latest trend and Big G updates.
