I've known about this site for a few years and stumbled across it every once in a while when it shows up as a search result. The sites that I've created or want to create mostly wouldn't be able to use black hat techniques effectively but I'm seeing now that the ideas talked about on this site are good to know even if they're not implemented. I'd be curious to hear some opinions on the ethics behind black hat techniques and what people think of implementing them on a moral level. I mean, we've all come across horrible google search results and thought, "I wish there wasn't so much spam on the Internet", right? I'm all for making money in a legal but borderline way but I don't know how I would feel about contributing to the problem. So, inb4 a bunch of "use the search" feature posts and sorry for the noob question. But can anybody point me in a good direction to start learning this stuff? Like, super noob basic terminology stuff. Also, anyone have experience working for others as like a VA and then branching off to your own projects? I would definitely be open to working for people here if possible.
