    I'm kind of on an information overload right now, because I'm new to the whole idea of black hat and I'm not exactly sure where I should start. What sub-forum's good for beginner's reading and what are some good reports I should read?

    Hey Corey,

    Well just browse around, choose a topic that appeal mostly to you , and then start applying what you have read. This is not only about blackhat, there are also some whitehat ebooks and advices here, in case you feel more secure with that kind of methods.

    Welcome here.

    Well, i'm interested in blogging and HA don't get me wrong.. playing by the rules isn't really a thing I like to do ;) so blackhat will most likely suite me fine.

    This brings up an interesting question/point: why don't we start a "Beginners" section of the forum, perhaps even with a step-by-step tutorial -- from absolute (white hat) beginner, to the advanced (black hat) techniques?

    Sure we can.
    I'm thinking about letting 20 people from here get a free membership at http://www.site-gold.com

    That way they can learn the white hat stuff and after that they can go to the black hat part.

    Let me know what you think.

    Sure, I'd be up for it.

    I think we need to build something similar right here on BHW as well. Maybe not something as complete as I first mentioned, but at least a dedicated section to give the nOObs something to read. An introductory course, if you will.

    Sure we can do that.
    We can make some easy WH topics, if Dave and the moderators agree.

    i guess that everyone can read a little bit of general internet marketing on other forums around, there is no need to waste our time with general things, like general white hat seo, what is bum marketing, what is video marketing, article marketing, ppc, pay per lead, cpa, affiliate marketing, blogs, email marketing, links, etc... because the answers to this one are easily found.
    Everyone who is really serious about making money online should put a little bit of effort into this right? Moreover, most basic things are completely explained in the ebooks from download section or a simple search on google will reveal the secret.
    Myself, i do not feel like writing comprehensive articles for beginners when i know that information is easily available somewhere else. But if there are volunteers who want to do this job, they are appreciated of course.
    But you know, if we start to repeat all general marketing in this forum, i am afraid not to lose focus on what really matters, at least for a good part of us: advanced internet marketing techniques, some blackhat methods, new ideas, new innovations, keeping an eye on new loopholes that appear, profiting from new websites that can deliver traffic, etc.
    Anyway will see how it goes.
    I am also for instance a complete noob at ppc and email marketing. But when i started to learn about them, i read everything on the web and had a general idea. Now i am reading some nice hot tips and new tricks and tweaks in this forum that can be applied to them. Should i ever have any questions , i would ask them here. But the fact that there was not a specific section in this forum explaining to the noobs like me what is email marketing or ppc, did not kept me back from trying to learn and apply them.
    I do not want to sound harsh: i appreciate people who try to make money online, and especially beginners, but i can not suffer the people who expect to be spoon-fed by others with a detailed business plan, nor i can suffer the people who completely expect and ask from a lot of help in the forum and they never think of giving something back.

    Again,quiting my rant, congratulations to those who plan to write some tutorials for beginners, i think they are very unselfish persons and i wish them good luck.

    Respectfully,

    Nick Flame
