    I've have lots of web development experience but have not looked at Black Hat until just recently - very recent, thought about it a lot but now I'm more serious due to amount of regulation and control the search engines push around especially Google and Google Adwords etc. - Getting a little tired of being the white hat kind of guy and getting limited results on affiliate programs.

    What I would like to know is the following:

    Would any experienced BH experts think it a good idea to setup any domains that will be used for BH techniques to be done on a new Hosting company separate from my mainstream sites and the Host I have used for years - in other words, how badly do mainstream hosts react to BH techniques?

    When first dabbling, would it be a good idea to start with affiliate programs that one is willing to get banned from - just in case of detection? Noting this, is there a list of known affiliate programs that don't care how you provide traffic - both in the mainstream industry and adult industry?

    If using Wordpress, is there any risk of losing an Askimet key if detected? Does Wordpress monitor any BH activity (I can't see how, but hey, I'm new to this)?

    Is there any web hosts that one should avoid like the plague if using BH techniques?

    Finally anyone ever use Wordpress Cloaker? Any feedback on this product?

    Any recommendations or feedback on the above greatly appreciated :)
