    Hey guys

    What do you think about really blackhat methods to make people complete surveys or CPA networks?

    I just spend few h making awesome Landing page, with scripts etc. and in the end when i started to drive traffic, i though, why am i even doing this ?
    SO i just give up on that method and wont try it again.

    What you can say about black hat methods ?

    I have made thousands using super blackhat methods. if it works it works.If your method is good enough and you can get paid out. then its usually worth it.

    Black hat method is never a sustainable business model, instead of wasting your time doing that you can actually invest in some real ways and have a long term income.

    Maybe it works for some1 but i think in the end you wont get much and that still sucks.



    Thats true, do white hat methods, so people trust you and you would make more and more.
    SO i should focus on Whitehat methods, I need to help people not to scam them with blackhat methods

    Not true at all. BH is just an aggressive tactic but it converts as well as WH, if not better.

    Wha. I mean is they probably arent that good for advertisers, because most of BH methods try to make people to complete offer using some tricks, and sometimes they arent really interested in that offer

    So If I rank for the kw "credit card consolidation" using BH methods, are you saying that people are not interested in that offer or that it's not good for advertisers? If people weren't interested, that kw wouldn't have almost 7k GMS and almost 5k LMS. It's obviously good for advertisers or the CPC wouldn't be that high ($20-$30 CPC)

    I am no expert on Blackhat or Whitehat. I am not eve a novice but from what i have read on this board and esewhere, is that with blackhat you might get a quick fix, but after that it will be aloud thud to the bottom.

    Blackhat is just a way of doing something efficiently and breaking rules to accomplish what you want whereas whitehat will suck googles dick even when google says "don't build links, blah blah blah"

    Blackhat doesn't mean every method is out to scam someone, good lord.

    Nothing wrong with reading but before you jump into conclusions/state a fact, you may want to do your own testing/s.

    Im not talking about using blackhat methods to rank sites :D

    Im talking about blackhat methods to make people complete cpa offers like for example
    You post on CL that you give job for peopel, they write to you and you ask thm to fill offer to "test" them, so they just do that offer if they arent even interested

    That's not blackhat at all, that's scamming people. Sure it's discussed here because it is a good income earner but it still is scamming and shouldn't be labeled a blackhat thing. More like a scumbag thing.

    Look at the banner what does it say? SEO FORUM. CPA isn't viable at all really, you're always depending on someone else. Make a product, make a authority site. And use blackhat to beat your competitors. The internet is a huge place and theres millions of niches to conquer, you don't need to resort to scamming people.

    Peace.

    He's just looking for opinions/thoughts. Doesn't mean he's actually doing that.

    Money is money.
    If you enjoy throwing money away just because you feel bad for "stealing" time
    from people who already only use their time for useless stuff... Well, it´s your decision.

    Black hat method is only unsustainable if the network is not aware of what you are doing. If you are open with your AM's and have a good consistent blackhat method that you can bank well from i don't see why not.
