I Got Lost From Matt Cutt’s blog

I asked, and you answered.

I thank you deeply.

Below is a (mildly edited) list of the things that people are expecting from this blog, or the reasons they ended up here.

  • I want to learn some black hat skills to make money online
  • Some tips and tricks from black seo field.
  • How you get links? How you keep links? How do you avoid the inevitable lawsuits?
  • If you could write about something IM/AM/SEO/SEM/…-related, that is _not_ totally retarded or targeted to absolute beginners I would be glad.
  • Entertainment.
  • I’d like to see you avoid the same rehashing of the news that 95% of the SEO sites out there do.
  • Give us some more random advanced seo toys!!!
  • I want to see a site called “blackhat seo diary” actually discuss blackhat seo. Possibly even in a diary fashion…Maybe in vague terms discuss things you are working on. Use the blog as a refresher for things you might have forgotten, ask for advice about things you don’t know.
  • More ideas for abusing g**gle for an intermediate black hat
  • I would like to see program ideas, coding, etc. how to identify a need for a tool, then the coding and development of it, updating it, etc. How to stay ahead.
  • I just want to get an idea of what fellow blackhatters are doing.
  • Post because you’ve got content, not to keep your rhythm up.
  • We’re here for a fuller understanding. Posts with new, creative, or at least thoughtful, approaches & techniques that are well-researched are key. Shorter rather than longer, too.
  • One word – inspiration.
  • To understand the mindset of a blackhatter. Maybe also learn how to live without a conscience.
  • I got lost from Matt Cutt’s blog.

I will do my best to give you what you asked for.

Contrary to popular belief, the main reason Black Hat SEOs don’t post too often is not because they want to keep the secrets for themselves, but because they are too busy making money. White Hat Blogs that talk about Black Hat SEO don’t make money. Neverheless, I guess it’s some kind of ego thing that keeps us blogging.

Oh, cheers for the laugh Mark.

YACG Mass Installer Is Fucking Great

I will tell you why I think YACG Mass Installer Is Fucking Great

A little over a year ago it was really easy to crank up a few million pages generated by some publicly available page generator such as RSSGM, get indexed by the search engines and watch your Adsense income roll in.

I already explained why Adsense sucks.

RSSGM also sucks. Not because it was a bad tool to start with, but simply because it has been around for a long while, and its footprints are very well known already.

So here’s the deal. Many SEO analphabets (or as I call them, Black Hat Monkeys) spent enourmous amount of hours generating these pages and getting them indexed with simple techniques such as blog and ping. Many of them did very well for themselves while the trend lasted.

Some of them, the smart ones, adapted to the new times.

I already talked about YACG. I think YACG is a great little tool. Even if you are not a programmer you can find your way around it pretty fast, and within minutes of playing with it you can modify the hell out of it so you hide its footprints.

I have built YACG sites and got them indexed within days. But the best thing is that they last in the index.

The fact that I am using my own content source (very easy to hook to YACG) may have something to do with the fact that my sites are not getting banned.

If you think going this way is worth it, sign up on YACG forums. It’s full of code to use and ideas. Im sure if you have some PHP skills you’ll be conding your own content source in hours.

But don’t let that stop you if you are not a code or you can’t afford one. I know a guy who’s using nothing but regular YACG content sources and he’s at $100 + a day.

Here’s the problem though. Some YACG sites pull a lot of traffic, and some don’t. It depends on the keyword list you are using. On time, you want to use only traffic pulling lists. But nevertheless, each site pulls in a low amount of traffic, so you need to build many sites if you want to generate a significant income this way.

This is where YACG Mass Installer comes in. This is a tool created by the original YACG Developer, Busin3ss.

If it took you 3 to 5 minutes to install each site with YACG, using YACG Mass Installer you’ll be able to install 10 to 15 sites in that amount of time.

But, seriously, this is not even the best part of YACG Mass Installer. What I really like is the ability to generate templates and cover footprints. It allows you to do this really fast, and really well. This will make your sites live much longer in the index.

I hope you are seeing how powerful this tool is. I also hope that you notice that I am not placing any affiliate links in this post. So do you think I am recommending YACG Mass Installer for your benefit or mine?

So Gotan, does this mean that if I buy this tool and start generating YACG sites like crazy, I’ll make a lot of money?

As long as you sign up in their forums first so you get to know the tool inside and out, and you avoid leaving clumsy footprints, yes.

Of course you will also need some intelligent link building method, not like you can keep blogging and pinging like you used to ;)

So tell me. How do you feel about YACG? Are you making money using it?
