What's your opinion on BH marketing in a decade? Will it still be lucrative? Do you think it'll still bring in the dough in 10 years? 100 years? This is long, so hit back if you're impatient. Do you think it's gonna get harder and harder to make this "business" lucrative in the future? I've heard all sorts of things going on that are anti-BH...like G changing their algorithm and blocking out low quality micro niche sites, .cc's being deindexed, CPA networks getting more advanced at preventing fraud, YT making it harder to spam, etc. Something so simple can wipe out a whole field of IM. Let's say Firefox comes with noscript (script blocker) pre-installed in the future. And let's say Joe is into iframes. His whole income is based off of iframing offers. If this plugin were to be released with Firefox, Joe would be screwed (as it blocks XSS). 40% of the US population uses Firefox, so how much would that hurt poor Joe? A lot. If the US economy rolls into another downhill fall, people may resort to IM out of desperation. That means more competition for us, which can't be a good thing. Then there's also other competition from people jumping into IM. As you know, when a method is shared here it gets saturated like hell. And that's just from the current state. As BHW or any other IM related site gets more popular, that only means more competition. The 'net wasn't popular when I was growing up. During the first half of my life I didn't even know how to use a computer. Today we have 7-year-olds using Facebook. The new generation is more 'net-savvy. They know to avoid ads. They know to avoid surveys. They have a sixth sense for a scam or a BS website. We already have so many noobs (and growing) screwing up new methods and making them useless and saturated ("JR. VIP THIS NOW!!11!1!"), so they will make new methods even harder to work into the new generation. Notice all the threads with noobs wanting to be spoonfed recently? We really need to restrict who can join or who can view the site content. There was a thread about making new members take a test before joining back then. I thought this was a horrible idea back then, but now I fully support it. I'm know I'm being pessimistic (and maybe paranoid), but this is something I've wondered about since the beginning. I'm not even close to being an IM guru, as I've just started myself not too long ago. I wonder what will be the future of BH IM. BH tactics are usually short-term, so what about BH itself? Thoughts? Thanks for reading.
