The most blackhat thing I did was clicking on my own ads on Adsense lmao. Got banned. This was almost more than a decade ago.
The next thing I did was botting on instagram before Insta went batshit crazy on botters so I decided to go manual.
I was exposed to a lot of blackhat - more illegal than blackhat back in the days but never decided to do that. Stealing is not an option. (Clicking on my own ads was driven by the excitement as a kid).

I'm curious to know how black hat equates to crime.

And you're pretending not to understand what I was thinking after all the explanations?

Of course, I don't think that crime is what most of us do today, SEO stuff, of course, there are always people who cross borders...

I meant those who use black hat techniques and end up in prison, black hat is a very broad term.

As @BassTrackerBoats said bhw has had a bit of a rebrand and should really be ghw now.

Blackhat = against the law.
Greyhat = against the t&c of a company
Whitehat = neither illegal or against company terms.

Never really did blackhat, like most on here just greyhat.

Before i was married, my office had several letters, with bank statements framed together.

The letters were cease and desist notices, the bank statements how much i made ignoring them!

My top 3 were:
Apple - for screwing with their uk launch of the iphone
Amazon - for screwing their kdp pay per page limit
Warner Studios - for ripping off harry potter

Ehhhh, that guy has posted some nice threads, actually... It's terrible what this thread has turned into, though. Like, you couldn't even learn the method because there were pages upon pages of people complaining about it being immoral. If you wanted to learn the method you had to read through multiple pages of this 'it's immoral!!!!!!1111' bullshit before you'd FINALLY find a post or two by the author with tips and replies to questions asked by people who were actually trying the method. Wtf, nobody needs other people standing and yelling at them ('it's immoral!!!!! Blahblahblah') while they're trying to learn a skill, any skill. You guys (I mean people who were trolling that thread) might not like some methods, but you don't have the authorithy over someone's life to tell them how to live, come on... It's not your business, eh. I understand that someone is running this forum (lol, there are people behind it, it's not automagically running itself) and maybe the owners don't want their creation to be associated with illegal activities (because, like - legal problems) but the casino thread wasn't removed or anything, so it seemed allowed. There was really no need for self-proclaimed wannabe (not)mods littering the thread with complaining about how immoral it is... Come on, life is immoral. Normal 'whitehat' offline businesses are immoral as fuck. I understand that there are limits on what is discussed here due to legal reasons (and it's really cool actually... That you can still be blackhat by fucking the tos but stay relatively safe by law) but why the trolls judging what's moral and what isn't... Is that a Sunday school or what?
i agree. i hate those fluffy unicorns with moral compasses too. so useless and annoying comments they make. just whining "BUT ITS PROFITING ON OTHER PEOPLE". like almost anything in this world isnt like that.

What was the best method that you had ever seen in Blackhat?

Edit: For example. The best method I had ever seen or I thought was pretty cool was have the text on the webpage all white on a white background for ranking. I am pretty sure this cannot be done now because it is out dated. But I thought that was well thought out.
I do have several blackhat methods,, but unfortunately I can't post them as it breaks BLACKHATworld's TOS. Yeah, we can't post blackhat stuff in BLACKHATworld :D

I've been creating sites that mimic other big companies for years, have received enough C&D letters to cover the great wall of China but that is not a criminal act but rather something that could cause me civil lawsuits... never had one though as there is almost always a way around that.

Love this!

Would love to hear more, but I guess that's your know-how :)
