    True, or build an offline business to support the entire family while still rocking the spam world.

    A good read - but still just one mans opinion.

    This "SEO is dead" is kinda like "computers are gonna take all our jobs".
    It seems kinda like it makes sense, until you think about it properly.

    And all this written so we can click that Ptengine link and visit their site. So, that's called Inbound marketing?

    Or build a variety of on line businesses and spread the risk.

    He had a good run, that is how things go in IM sometimes and you need to expand your horizons and search out new ways to generate revenue on a regular basis in order to keep one step ahead of the dynamics of online marketing.

    There are two concepts that people seems to be confused with.

    First, google isn't the internet. Spamming google would be spamming google properties with your comments. Spamming the internet to increase your rankings in search engines does not equal to spamming google. Google made up this concept to sound like a victim of evil "black hat" link builders. Google doesn't deserve any pity and neither should any sane person seek to blame others and corporations for their misfortune.

    Second, since who came up with the concept that building links is spamming? I know it's widely used now, and even I referred to the practice as spamming in the above paragraph, but this word again makes your activity sound like you do something illegal. People associate spamming with sending unsolicited emails, which is considered illegal, I believe, in many countries. Saying that you spam (do something that resonates with an "illegal" activity) Google (make them sound like a victim) is the biggest fucking propaganda people can fall for.

    Good luck bras.

    I love reading all your comments/posts and I do have to agree with you.

    I love seeing that awkward look on people's eyes when I tell them that I'm a spammer. It gives me a sense of satisfaction that being called a IMer can't.

    I didn't want to look at the site, but I did. Then I remembered it's Rant Whalekin's personal blog with a bunch of clowns as guest bloggers on it.

    Many gullible look at Rant (Moz C-SEOSam) and Searchenginelandfill as something as SEO experts. They are simply journalists. They tell you what they heard from the google propaganda talking head, Fatt Cutts, they put Matt's propaganda through Wordai and there you have what is considered to be SEO mainstream news and expert talk. Wordai isn't cheap, but if you enough dumbfucks to read your lies, then by all means, go for it.

    It was definitely an interesting read. Obviously was written for the link. Also get the feeling he'd like "something more" from Rand.

    Finished reading, I love this article, but I am feeling some strange and weird thoughts in my head!

    WHY?

    The article refer China, hot girl, house, many times, and you know what? Im a Chinese, desperately want to earn $5 a day and this guy is already a millionaire spammer, WHAT A LIFE! LOL

    I read BHW more than 2 years but still with ZERO dollar in my bank account, Im just start to do things nowadays. So I must say, envy this guy, totally offtopic though. I will never give up, I will keep going!

    All in all, nice reading, thanks for share this :)

    So this guy made hundreds of thousands from spamming google and then says "Content is king" at the end lmfao

    Should have saved his money or created new income streams.

    What i want to say exactly. Content is king. We should keep on building great contents and try so much, so as other greedy bloggers would link to us, and you'll build yours and link it, blast it and earn thousands.

    Please, keep quiet sire.
