I know my title is a little misleading but it was done purposely to grab some attention. LOL. Basically the point of this thread is to help others like myself who want a baseline from the experts. Im trying to read, trust me I am but I honestly get sooo confused when I'm reading a thread about a specific program (for example: Xrumer) and then here comes everyone with well you have to linkwhell this, web 2.0 that, ping this, senuke this, etc. etc. so by the time im done reading about Xrumer im looking into building web 2.0 sites, looking into pinging previously created backlinks, etc and by the time I know it i completely lost focus on my original goal which was learning about Xrumer. LOL. So with that being said, where do I start and focus on ONLY? Can someone just suggest an order of what to learn from start to finish so that way I can be as successful as possible with blackhat. What I fear most is that I start doing something and later read I shouldve done something else prior and now everything Ive done is the past is obsolete. Im not asking to get detailed, Im just saying a simple: 1. 2. 3. etc scale on what to learn in sequence. As of right now I own Xrumer, Scrapebox, The Best Spinner and a couple other things but Id be lying if I said I was a master at any of them. I think by the time Im done reading a thread, Im buying something. LOL. I need to slow down and start from scratch again and Im hoping someone/anyone is willing to point me in the right direction.
