Hello BHW. I've made this thread to prove a couple points. 1. Scraped content is NOT dead. 2. TBS spinning is NOT dead. 3. black hat seo DOES work. 4. you can rank micro keywords FAST. Little about my keywords. All 4 are micro niche keywords, 200k search results, and each keyword is anywhere from 75-300 searches a month (exact match on). I targeted a very niche group of visitors that hopefully will convert well for me, but thats not the point. the point is I got my site ranked on the first page for 4 keywords (one of them the EMD keyword) within a week using ONLY blackhat software. Day1 Bought the domain Day2 Built my sales page wordpress site. I'm not a master of optimization either but I must have done something right. Day3 *scraped content 20 social network urls 34 bookmark urls 40 web 20 profile urls 104 forum profile pr 5 or higher urls 70 article urls All blasted by scrapebox - 50k Followed by 1x Micro niche crusher 1.0 (Yes, the service I offer on bhw) day4-7 ... wait day 8 wake up and all 4 keywords I targeted were on the first page between pos. 8-6. I used all scraped content. all the top links anchor texts were spun between my 4 keywords, and my micro niche crusher was used on the emd keyword (and yes the EMD keyword is the highest ranked at the moment) All this was done with AMR/senuke/SB so no, these tools are NOT dead. To those of you spending countless months with your white hat strategies... Good luck !
