[Blackhat Method Analysis] Rank With Web 2.0 & GSA SER using 12 subdomains via BHW

It is always important to follow the goings-on of each dark corner of the net. The great thing about these Blackhat forums and communities is that they actually roll their sleeves up and test new ways to earn money online (usually through increasing rankings in Google and affiliate marketing). I think all SEOs and marketers, Whitehat or Blackhat should pay attention to these types of places as they can give invaluable information on how Google works and what is possible. [...]

Google says it would like to communicate more information on penalties but has no plans to do it

Google says it would like to communicate more information on penalties but has no plans to do it

Google has always been shy to give out information to webmasters concerning the reasons behind penalties or changes in their website's search ranking. They often tread a thin line by trying not to give Blackhats information about how the algorithm works but also trying to give webmasters who play by their rules some information too. Unfortunately, I and many others often feel that Google falls short on communicating enough information for webmasters when they get into deep water with the [...]

Motivation 2: When you begin to slip, draw on the environment to make a change in momentum

Motivation 2: When you begin to slip, draw on the environment to make a change in momentum

Each and every day is like a lottery. Sometimes I wake up and begin my routine but feel that extra tug from below pulling me back down like gravity doubling holding onto my very being so that it feels like everything takes twice as much effort and my usual habitual motivational techniques do not work. Today I felt this way, my usual motivational techniques failed to stop me from feeling tired and fatigued,  my motivation was dropping and even though I [...]

Aren't you tired of being forced into this imaginary box of ethics and morals that Google is forcing on your business? This irrational yet widely accepted idea that if you do not follow what Google says then you are "spanked", cast out and treated like a criminal, this even with the constantly changing guidelines(Rules) that Google itself violates. And then, [...]

There has always been a pattern with my behaviour when it comes to these [...]
