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 [...]

Are you a Smart Internet Marketer(SIMer)?

Are you a Smart Internet Marketer(SIMer)?

I genuinely want to ask you an important question and I hope you think about it for a moment and answer honestly. 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, [...]

Motivation: A duality in my personality which I struggle with

Motivation: A duality in my personality which I struggle with

For as long as I can remember I've always been the type of person that struggles to find motivation every single day. I've often found myself swinging like a pendulum from day to day, one day I'm hugely motivated and then the next I'm on a low and I find it hard to do the types of things that I wanted to do to progress in life. There has always been a pattern with my behaviour when it comes to these [...]

Its Time You Ditched Gmail, Chrome, WMT, GA

Pushing my protection agenda and policy for Blackhatters I thought I'd urge you to make an effort to protect your self and your property from the attacker which is Google. Our best asset is being one step ahead of Google and not taking chances by believing they cant do that. We've done this many times before, we said they cant manually review the SERPS, we said they cant take down private blogs networks and we said they cant penalize websites for building [...]

When you begin to search for your goal in life, when you first think about what [...]

A Blackhatter’s Manifesto – By CCarter

A Blackhatter’s Manifesto – By CCarter

My existence pre-dates your comprehension of the digital world. I was in the murky darkness that was created before there was a Google, when Yahoo was still a young pup, and AOL WAS the internet. The younger generation refer to those of us that existed in the 'before times' as Ancients. We know the true ways of the internet, we know it's vastness, it's capabilities and it's potential. We've seen brands, web properties, and even search engines come and go. Every [...]
