    Mods: May have posted this in the wrong section so please move accordingly. Thanks.

    Note: This is a message to those struggling to make $1.00 per day with black hat methods. This is also for those of you who are at least making $500 per month and are looking to make a full time living with IM but struggling to expand.

    I used to be the type of guy that loved black hat methods. I loved the idea of exploiting the big G and making as much as I can from #1 rankings and then disappear. It was only until I realised that the world is moving forward whilst I am remaining stagnant.

    You see, while I was making $xx per day with my CPA websites and Pinterest methods, Google and other major companies around the world have been increasing their market share and going into futuristic tech such as AI.

    Machine learning is the newest kid on the block and Google is taking full course of action with this to help with their search engine results. Think about it. There's going to be a time in the not so distant future where search results will be highly accurate. Whatever you are looking for, the answer will be right there.

    This means your black hat SEO tactics won't suffice.

    You think Google isn't making a self trained AI system that auto deletes your shitty one page CPA niche site within microseconds? As well as that, other major companies are hopping on to the bandwagon and finding ways to weed the little guys out so they can control the marketplace.

    What I'm saying in this thread is that you shouldn't waste your potential. Sure you can go ahead and do black hat SEO. I'm still doing it and rinsing my parasite SEO method dry until it bleeds out its last penny. However, I'm also using my head and realising this isn't long term and in the future, when the Google AI is clever enough to weed out crappy sites, my one page sites won't be earning a single dollar.

    That's why I'm branching out into different businesses. I'm starting a very niche e-commerce website for long term success, increasing my skills in coding, learning about AI, machine learning and other useful tidbits that can increase my wealth in the future.

    TL:DR - Don't rely on BHW methods, use your head and stop wasting your potential. Branch out into real life applications that build long term wealth.

    Absolutely agree, better build slowly to last long and bring passive income than the opposite

    Is it really feasible that googles AI becomes that powerful that soon? Like isn't a one page niche site hard to spot with an algorithm if footprints are covered?
    Not doubting, just curious, the AI fear seems kinda like paranoia to me

    Sure I am wasting potential, money could solve all that. :)

    Most users on this forum wants a get rich quick scheme or think small.

    I am in for the long haul. (winter is coming) although little to no result, a whisper will grow into a roar given time.

    I Agree. Black Hat methods are great for fast profits, but once your method gets patched or you lose the accounts, or the affiliate/CPA network refuses to pay out commissions to you, because you used black hat methods, then you're f***ed.
    Yes, the white hat methods are long-term. But once you start earning, you will gradually increase your profits month after month. The only thing you have to invest is time. While it sucks, it's SUPER worth-it!
    If you're young, you have all the time in the world. If you're 20, in 5 years you can build any social profile to 1+ million followers or a blog that earns $20K+ a month. By the time you're 25, you'll live better than anyone you know and you'll be set for life.

    Wise thoughts, man and Im 100% agree.
    Think its all about personal development. Some come to realising this sooner, some - later. But anyway it comes to your mind, that its better to play long-term but a worthy game.

    Definitely agree.
    That's why it's good to have at least two solid emergency plans in case everything goes to shit, whether that means working as a software engineer or offering your marketing services to businesses.

    There is every reason to be scared of AI. I work on it myself and keep up with current developments, so I think Im rather informed. Even the developers usually have a hard time understanding how an AI gets so good at something, which basically means the 'footprints' it notices are hardly visible to humans.
    Aside from that General Intelligence is scary, basically everyone is scared of it. Elon Musk keeps saying it needs to be regulated before it gets out of control and hes also very involved in the subject (see DeepMind).

    Black hat is a illusion of passive income.

    But...

    What makes you money is your strategy. And black hat is still o good strategy for fast money... I've done gsa ranker and resulted in nothing but a waste of time, but there are people who is profitting from it... That's because they know what they are doing...

    I'm happy to see people here waking up and see that blackhat is short term , or sometimes just a waste of precious time. Go do somethig, create value and build whatever you want, slowly but safe. Focus on one thing. After the 1 thing grows and generate money and is stable , you can start another project doing somethingelse. You dont have to fight with big companies creating x,xxx accouns then next morning find 50% of them banned ( just example) . Learn skills, read, listen audiobooks, but dont stop here, take action. If you dont start something and just read read . . Its useless.

    You'd be surprised dude. AI is increasing in capacity quite exponentially. A lot of big corps like Google are investing a sh*t ton of money into this for other reasons so something as simple as an AI that can instantly find trash sites isn't quite hard to fathom.

    We live in an age where we can upload our consciousness into computers in less than 50 years. Anything is possible nowadays, as long as pertains to human knowledge.

    Good luck with your journey man. End 2018 with a bang!

    It really is a mindset. Most noobs here begin with a defeatist mindset saying IM isn't for them, they can't cold call, or can't create a website. All it requires is a little studying just like in school and implementation.

    I, personally, stick to the 30% learning, 70% application.

    Yep, best to keep all options open.

    I agree 100%. It's best to build up your personal skills so that it easily translates to money making.
