    Yes YOU!
    no one else but YOU!

    you have just proved it.... i wanted you to click on this thread/topic and you did. Just like a sheep does, it does as i or someone else wants or tells it to.

    (dont worry this isn't going to be useless information but instead food for thought).

    So now lets think of this from a marketers point of view....
    If i can make you click on a topic and choose it over the thousands of other topics that are here and you read it then i as the marketer have acheived step 1 out of maybe 2 or 3 steps or even 4 depending on how you look at it.
    Now as a marketer and a blackhat one at that i have two options one is....
    - eat my cookies so i earn money even if you don't post
    or
    - i want you to post as ive posted a cloaked affiliate link or want you to bump this up so more sheep eat cookies.

    Okay obviously option 2 is more important and will be more sucesfull so for that in a place like this (no cookies here you will be pleased to know) i would provide you with good information for you to say thanks to because it seems no one uses the thanks button anymore but instead posts thanks.

    You the sheep can also make the thread more interesting and reply revoking (think thats the right word) meaning that you make people reply.
    there are 3 ways to do this
    - if your on a jewish forum post about nazi's or hitler or a great jewish leader and ask for their thoughts on the matter (this will touch the hearts of many of them and make them want to reply)
    - Make a poll on a person, people (Not a subject) and then make sure you have a 3rd option that says 'i will post below what i think/feel' then you are giving a traditional poll that people want to see the results of and give their results but also you are almost asking them and telling these other sheep for their views like you really do care.
    - the worst method is to simply ask them for their views on this or for them to post thanks or whatever. it sucks and even though you are a sheep other sheep wont be as forthcoming with doing as you actually request in text for them to do (come on who reads the instructions or the readme of anything before? not many).

    Okay so now this doesn't just have to be used for forums alone. Use it for blogs and landing pages too that go to a cpa offer. They will work a treat.

    Almost forgot.... to you smaller sheep (i.e. the ones with yellow names and low post count) you will! and don't try to deny it! but you will and do take more notice of things posted by people with the following colours -> blue, red, green, light blue (think thats all of them) oh and sometimes pink but not allways as that kinda just means they like this place and have some money they don't mind giving to it.

    BUT! you shouldn't allways listen to what any of them (including me maybe) have to say. I have seen alot of threads asking if autoblogging is dead for example (because thanks to me and valwardon revealing the method step by step on flipping it seems that now the price has radically dropped). NOW! this as said by small_town_boy or my partner in crime Mr Rose is actually now a perfect opportunity for us. This board gets what 1,000 people + online at all times and a thread like that with a catchy title will be getting 1000+ views in a 12 hour period i just know it. So now i could go along and post 'yes autoblogs are dead' which in some ways it is and others nope and then a week or so down the line i will have less competition when it comes to selling autoblogs that i make and if i think outside the box then i could also get it oursourced for cheaper too and still make a profit.

    What im trying to say is don't listen to everything you read... some people are trust worthy but as you can see others will use you to get what they want and without you even knowing it.

    So now sheep! go baaaaaaa! and choose wisely what you do next time you post on these boards or any other.........

    Hey lewi!

    What you are basically talking about is a form of what is often called "Linkbaiting".

    One way to collect good linkbaiting subject titles is to notice the titles of emails that are being sent to you from all of the mailing lists you have opted in for. I have started a swipe file of the ones that compelled me to click.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Great info there wizz.... unfortunatly and surprisingly im not in any mailings lists because i know and understand how they are used myself but yes copying things that make you go oooooo or baaaaa in this case is allways a good idea.

    Wizz you are now a step 2 sheep well done :p (for posting here like i wanted him too).

    edit: and the other 32 people who have viewed this thread are also sheep.

    You proved what?? ............. that we click the link, it is on the top of the new post and this is a forum where the whole purpose is to click the links, it has nothing to do with being a sheep, more with curiosity. so there goes your theory

    Stop thinking inside the box.... i thought you were a fellow clever blackhat'er but maybe not :(

    I chose a compelling title to make you click... okay its on the top of the boards at the moment but if you saw a title like 'help me make money plz im uber n00b ya' you would either click it to say 'fuck off and not read it' or you wouldn't click it at all.

    It seems you like me read nearly every topic ever posted on this forum but 99% of the other people here don't and are the sheep that are easily influenced....

    If you can't see how this is working then you should be classed as a noob or a dumb blackhat or just dumb. Its right infront of your eyes now. Come on you sheep look and think it over.

    (2 more techniques were used in this post alone)

    Well i couldn't care less of what you think of my BH status, the only thing that i am saying that is has nothing to do with people being sheep's and then you can try to take it on a personal level but i am not falling for that. (don't see the point in arguing with people who are full of themselves)

    My argument still holds grounds, but i am leaving this thread for what it is and let you play BlackHatter while i am out making some real money.

    Good luck with it.

    Dave.

    Fair enough man but i answered why to your statement anyhow.
    I don't care if no one takes action on this is does honestly make it easier for us few people who think outside the box with things.

    Nice One! :) I see the three techniques working! Great way to drive people
    to a thread. I can see how this would work well in other forums.

    Yeah, I was a sheep just like the rest, I just HAD to click that catchy title. :p

    Yea, I am sheep and you got me to click :D but I am not a targetted 'visitor', what would you sell me? "How to get a revolutionary mindset" or sheep food :D? P.S: I didn't read your thread expect the first 2-3 lines so don't bother to bug me with anything that I don't know about (?).

    Good idea, Wiz, and they are great for new headlines ideas. Another out of the box idea I use is look at the supermarket tabloid and magazine headlines. These are some of the best headlines on the planet. I use the lose weight magazine headlines for one of my white hat weight loss sites. They work really well for your Adwords campaigns. I also use them for Craigslist ads and have had really good success with them.

    But if i replicate this thread somewere else and use a method that im not allowed to talk about here yet (to do with cookies) then you are a targetted visitor. Honestly if you can replicate this very method ive used here on other forums and use the cookie method (sorry i cant give anymore info but you need to have x number of posts etc to view that thread) Then you can make good cash :)

    This thread has nothing to do with my ebook sales as it is a different method and has alot more variables when you try and sell an ebook. Treat this thread as food for thought.
