    Although I will never reach a Jr. VIP Status or higher due to my inability to contribute at a higher level to what is already here, I will be making a donation soon to thank Diamond Dave and others for creating this site.

    I think there is definately some duplicate contact on these boards (in an effort to artifically boost status). I would rather contribute new and innovative technique (as I find it) so will likely never make it to a high status as what is already here is petty cutting edge -> you will find If you look hard enough and do your homework.

    Here is one tip though for those who submit press releases that is not here. I stumbled onto a site for PR professionals g**gle infocom group and
    the bull d o g newsletter site: the site with a filetype:pdf on the end. You will find PR contact info for all the top PR people for every major magazine, TV, radio, BLOG etc in their newsletters. Have a site or product for O P R A H... you will find every contact here. They also have a ton of education for PR tactics, social netwoking, emailing the press etc. It is really wort a visit! If a senior member PM's me I will email you what I have collected (as I don't know how to share stuff here - I know there are instructions - just have not taken the time - too much other stuff to do)

    Now Thanks to BHW!!!

    I joined this site in May of 2009. Since then I have overwhelmed myself with downloads of ebooks that have taught me a world of information. I have put in 3 solid months of education for at least 6 -9 hours a day. My brain is practically fried! But I am ready to move to the next level.

    Thanks to whomever uploaded XSitePro2 (I have bought it since) - I have created 3 sites using it in 3 months! Thanks to all who post on Wordpress tips / tricks / etc. (I am learning it and it is an amazing platform)

    Thanks to all who have uploaded ebooks and programs. You REALLY have encouraged me to take action! :)

    I am SOLD! Maybe not on Black Hat, but definately on Internet Marketing. As a Financial Advisor for the past 10 years (and in the biz for 19), I thought there were only two professions in the world that could create a steady stream of residualized income: Financial Services (Money Management) & Real Estate (renting, leasing etc). I was wrong. Internet Marketing is definately one to add to the list. It really is easy once you put your mind to it and take action!

    Thanks for supplying (or writing in the cases I paid for them) ebooks (paid or not paid for) from James Schramko, Yanik Silver, Bob Bly, Clayton Makepeace, Alex Mendellsohn (spelled wrong) and many many others.

    Tip: Subscribe to blogs of these and other authors and you will learn a ton more on the WH side of things. Kim Roach is a good one to follow also.

    Special Special Special Thanks to DD and the other administrators here who take time from their likely very busy schedules to monitor and contribute. Without you this site would be a HUGE waste of time for visitors! I always enjoy reading HARRO. Please keep the faith and stick with it. Your efforts are truly appreciated even if you don't hear it often enough!!!!

    Anyway enough of my rave... Although I likely can't contribute anything more worthwhile than what I can find here for some time in the future, I will NEVER forget the source of what kicked my ass into gear for IMing.

    Please don't shut down the site or let the MAN force you to. This site is a HUGE resource for those willing to take action from what they learn here.

    And with that I say HAVE A PROFITABLE day! Now off to enter a bunch of stop losses to protect those gains in the market! As I said, I love residualized income and even if I make a Million a month some day, I will never give up being a Financial Advisor. Maybe then I will only serve successful IMers.

    Best,

    GeoBandito

    PS If anyone here lives in or around Baltimore (USA) or visits the area, send me a message and I will buy you a beer (or several).


    PSS: You MUST take action on what you learn here to make it happen! Good luck!

    (my apologies for incorrect spelling)

    You yourself is a great contribution to this community:rofl:. Keep hanging around and one day you will post your own methods once you finish learning.

    In the learning stage it looks like you will never be able to post something new like you read. But once you gather good information about your subject, then you will start getting new ideas and you start testing them. This is the birth of a new blackhatter.:cool:

    Congratulations for taking action. Most of the people lack it.:drinking2

    Dude I skimmed your tribute post looking for the "I'm now making $X,XXX p/day (week, month, whatever) beause of what I've learned here!"

    If someone invests time/knowledge into another person, they not only are hoping for a thank-you, but they want to see results.

    How's your bottom line now after all your invested time and effort?

    I am at ZERO. The sites I have created focus on my HIGHLY REGULATED financial services practice. They sell myself not a product or niche. Everything must go through a compliance dept so I can't take advantage of great copy - only SEO tactics. I am driving traffic though and building a list which can't be said about ANY self employed Financial Advisor. Most sites for FA's just give free info and don't collect names or make a list. I have also put over 50 videos on the site (thanks to Camtasia) which no one has done before me in the biz. I am currently generating cool 2.0 graphics, optimizing pages, submitting press relaeses, article submission, social networking, getting back links, blogging, youtube etc.

    Most of this stuff was learned here.

    Just trying to spread the LUV.

    But now that I am winding down with my regulated stuff, I have purchased 10 domains to specific niches, done some Public Domain homework, become familiar with various SEO tactics, begun building WP themes for the sites, perfecting video genertation, hooked up with various affiliates and CPA's, etc...

    These first efforts are really just test sites for what's to come. I will post again in a month with results.

    I just bought a domain that will do well for next years Tour De France. Can you say over 50,000,000 hits on good keywords over the past month?

    Niches I am pursuing: Cycling, Golf, Fishing, Teeth Whitening, Going Green, Diet - Exercise to name a few.

    Persistence and overcoming mistakes will win the day!

    wow a contributor that mentions the niches hes targetting, thats either very stupid or very generous lol :)

    thanks for the post, i too really love BHW and the people here in general, i wish i could kick my own a$$ into doing more, i work 9-5 and get home at 6 dead tired lol, 2 out of 7 days i probably get down to actually programming or posting a few CL posts for a little cash... god i wish i could just find something that works and stick with it :( 9 to 5 monotony is killin me.

    all niches known to any one with 1/2 a brain or spends time on the internet. Really no secret....

    niche ideas are everwhere http://gurucrusher.com/free-niche-ideas-pdf-from-my-buddy-howie/
