I started a new website a month ago. Doesn't really matter what it was about - I just started it to test a few things. I wrote some code and ran some experiments to see if a could get a new SEO-technique to work. And it did. 100% traffic from Google. Here's my traffic stats: 12,678 unique visitors in 30 days. Cool, huh? Not exceptional in any way - but still over 10k visitors and the way traffic increased it would easily hit about 1k visitors/day within another week or so. Why am I telling you this? Well, As you can see the traffic just died yesterday. And today = no traffic at all. And this is something you should keep in mind at all times when you do Grey/black hat stuff. Especially with Google. And believe it or not: This is not 100% black hat. There's nothing written in their guidelines about the stuff I did. Might be questionable, but they haven't de-indexed the page or given me any warning - Just decided to stop giving me organic traffic. It might come back one day, but very likely it won't. So... The reason I'm telling you this is simply to remind you that this is the way the black hat game is, and will always, be played. And when you play that game, you can never assume anything. Especially not what's going to happen tomorrow, a week from now or even the next hour. Build your income and revenue overnight, and it's very likely to go away overnight as well. I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with blackhat, just keep in mind that you could loose everything you've built when you least expect. (I have another 15, or so, websites (all white hat), so don't feel sorry for me. Just keep this in mind.) So, here's what I'd like to discuss and ask YOU: What do you think about this? How does it make you feel? Have this happened to you?
