    I am leaning towards Blackhat, but I thought I would ask your opinions first ...

    I have a site that is in the UK sports betting niche. Gambling isn't illegal in the UK, and it's openly advertised, but I am not sure if it is still something taboo.

    Anyway, I have been advertising on Facebook for the past few days, and it's been slow and expensive. I am hardly getting any traffic, and when I am, it's costing me a fortune!!

    Now, I have been looking at a Facebook software which automatically joins, and posts in Facebook groups based on your keywords.

    Would you recommend I keep it legit and keep using Facebook ads, or shall I go blackhat, fire up hundreds of accounts across loads of different niches, and smash the hell out of the groups.

    What would you do?

    Smash the hell out of groups. You could always work with mass Twitter accounts as well. Facebook ads are expensive, just stick with BH methods.
    On a side note, I remember I went to the UK and there were people on the street hosting a game with 3 cups and a ball. I made myself $40 :cool:

    Black hat methods usually work better and the cost if lower. Definitely proceed with the black hat!

    Depends. Is the whole project long term or short term?
    if its long term go with greyhat but if its short term blast the hell out of those groups.
    Create a viral video of someone winning or some other thing that will make people wanna try their luck with your site.

    For gambling, I'd go blackhat. Its going to be impossible to get any traction on the whitehat side of things in that niche.

    I'd prefer you to go with BH methods.

    Blackhat methods all the way, always works, just somewhat risky, but controlled Blackhat is always perfect :)

    Whitehat for gambling niches would cost you a fortune. Its all blackhat these days.
