Howdy Spammers

Almost a year after my last post, it’s scary how fast time goes by.

SEO de Janeiro was the shit, though I’m late to report it :) Got to know some great dudes and was part of some very cool discussions.

This was a very busy year, which partly explains why I haven’t been blogging.

Lots of things have changed… for example:

  • Everyone is tweeting
  • Everyone is using thesis
  • Everyone got their adwords account banned
  • Everyone knows what a flog is (which explains previous bullet point)
  • There is Bing now… watch out

Some things, however, don’t change.

For example, the good news is that Google can still be spammed. Don’t believe what you read or hear, black hat still works, as long as you master the art of making black look white. The old days of throwing mud against the wall and watching your adsense account go wild are long gone. Google’s efforts to get rid of spam separated the boys from the men and made us think like marketers, regardless of the color of the hat we wear.

Sorry for not posting for so long. I saw some old comments asking me stuff. Apologies but I had to delete them all because it was too chaotic to manage. Feel free to leave a comment again if you want to ask me anything, as I will be checking often now.

Next week I’m heading to Pubcon Vegas. If you are going there hit me up with an email or drop a comment and we’ll get together for a beer or many.
