    I saw this funny thread earlier offering advice to black hat SEOers:

    So now, I have some advice for everyone reading this:


    1. Don't mention that you've made a second account on Black Hat World after being banned for spamming Clickbank product hoplinks. In fact, don't create a second account or spam the forums at all.
    2. Always remember that mentoring on Black Hat World is against Black Hat World's TOS. Mentoring will get you banned.
    3. Plan out projects and campaigns, just don't use Google Docs (you know, because a black hat SEOer shouldn't be putting sensitive information related to link building using a document program owned by the company you are trying to manipulate).
    4. Ask for a trial period before you buy a bot. This will save you a copious amount of money.
    5. Stay safe online! Feel free to make connections with any and every member of the Internet marketing community, just don't be surprised if one of them turns out to be an equinophile. :deadhorse
    6. Allocate your time properly! Hopping around from project to project without ever completing the previous one is detrimental to the health of your business.

    Now, what about you? What piece of advice would you give to a new member of the Black Hat World community?

    1. Please tell me about Happy Miner
    2. A Pyramid scheme you say? brilliant! - what's your Paypal email?
    3. Yes, I'd love to spend all my time ranking your website for 5% of the money I make you
    4. Yes, I have a system that earns me great money and coincidentally, I've been waiting for a lazy bastard to join so I can tell him what it is

    Pretty sure your 6 is me... I've got way too many things going on, without ever completing 1!

    if you CAN be scammed you probably will be.

    Live by that motto.

    Don't be the jack of all trades - that would be my advice to new members. I see many members telling newbies to read, read, read, and read. There's nothing wrong with that. But some naive members may decide to read and implement everything they read, from PPD to CPA to affiliate marketing.

    Focus on one strategy until you make it. Choose one that you have some interest in and that you have enough money to invest in. Once you've achieved some success, replicate and scale.
