    What is the average lifespan of a blackhat site ? What I mean is, what are the risks like?

    I have a site that I have ran almost totally white-hat (I have bought a couple of high quality links (literally a couple), that's it.

    Other than that it's been in-site optimisation, keyword research and optimisation, manual link building and lots of content- and a lot of waiting!!

    The sites doing ok (about 9k uniques per month), but it's sort of slowing down as I run out of ideas - goal now is to try and increase earnings and start spending some money on the site (it's mostly been a hobby rather than business venture).

    Like the idea of some of the techniques used at bhw, but scared to use them on my site in case my rankings drop...

    I don't think there is an average as of such, and exactly how blackhat you are talking but for an example an autoblog with completely duplicate content, and huge direct link blasts can last for about a month before getting hurt in the rankings.

    Then again, I assume it varies from person to person.
