The Most Cutting Edge SEO Exploits No One is Publishing

You know that the best SEO Black Hats are doing something more than scraping, using a site generator, comment spamming, and pinging to be raking in more than $100k per month.

But what is it?

Right now, there is way too much good stuff that I simply can’t publish on the SEO Black Hat blog. If I posted these tactics and exploits they would immediately get all the wrong kind of attention. The detailed conversations about how exactly to abuse search engine algorithms, generate massive traffic, and what other Black Hats are doing must remain underground to retain their effectiveness.

But what if I told you that you could discuss these exploits with me without paying my $500 an hour consulting fee? What if I told you there was a way to join in on the private, cutting edge discussions with some of the best Black Hats and web entrepreneurs in the world?

Would you be interested?

Because now you can . . .

Today is the official launch of the resource you’ve looked everywhere for but never found:

The Private SEO Black Hat Forum

Normally what you get on forums are people who don’t know anything talking with people who don’t want to say anything. You can occasionally find amazing tips on some forums: but you have to dig through 400 crappy posts just to find one post that is useful. That becomes a huge time sink.

How are the SEO Black Hat forums different?

Quality: We’re not going to have any contests to see who can make the most posts. That just creates tons of crap that no one wants to read. Our focus is on quality over quantity. Our primary concern is with succinctly answering one question: “What works?”

Sophisticated: Many of the topics we discuss are very advanced and require a high level of technical or business acumen to appreciate.

Expert Discussions: The SEO Black Hat forums are not for everyone and they may not be right for you. If you are relatively new to SEO or building websites, then do not join the SEO Black Hat Forums: you will be in way over your head. There are plenty of newbie forums out there for you – this is not one of them. Our forums are for successful web entrepreneurs to develop strategies that drive more traffic and generate more revenues.

$10k a week on Myspace

Boogybonbon has anther nice post on making money with myspace bulletin system.

The kid(exaro) claims that he made “$X,XXX.XX” within the first 24 hours of doing this.

After digging through all the post I have managed to get a good idea what he is doing.

In a nutshell he is posting html to the bulletin system, and when a user clicks the link it will send the user to his website while at the same time send a email from that user to all his friends, and when they click the link it will do the same until everyone has run out of friends to click links.

Although this no longer works, it is interesting to see how it was accomplished.

Spammer Buying Myspace Profiles

It looks like someone is looking to buy myspace profiles with more than 20k Friends. That sounds like a pretty good idea to me!

Subject: TOP CASH FOR YOUR MYSPACE ACCOUNT
Body: If you have over 20,000 myspace friends in your account and would like to sell it, please contact me
I’m offering top dollar for these accounts. So, if you or someone you know wants to sell, then I’m looking to buy. 😉
email me at: siteinvestor@yahoo.com

Someone email him and find out how much he is paying.

Hat tip to Cheap Perfume.

X-Men and Myspace

Here is an excellent article from Search Engine Lowdown on Myspace marketing of Xmen:

The things that blew me away as examples of NewsCorp taking full advantage of the medium are the X-Men MySpace skins, the ability to include the movie trailer on your own page, added functionality on your own page to have up to 16 “Top friends” instead of the standard 8 by adding X-men as a friend and finally the inclusion of an in-profile forum where people are discussing who could play Gambit and what the coolest superpowers would be.
The bottom line is that that the people at Fox in charge of this effort knew their market, knew where to find it and have created incentives for market participation in branded discussions on the market’s terms.

Those myspace themes are an incredible idea. Yesterday, I did an overture search to see how many people searched for ¨cute.¨ The Top Results:

69994 cute myspace layout
59369 cute
54647 cute girl
38300 cute quote

I haven´t really cracked Myspace Marketing yet and, in fact, maybe NewsCorp has a stranglehold on it. But anyone who figures it out is going to have a money printing press.

Also, please forward every random friends request to me from anyone who is a marketer- I´m making a collection.

Myspace Spam

It’s embarrassing posting again about myspace; but this is pretty interesting. I recieved this myspace spam message and it looks like darn good execution.

At first glance it looks like a normal enough message. However, it was sent by a new account with no friends. This way, if the message sender gets banned, the recipient of the friend request is still in tact. The sender is requesting that you be someone elses myspace friend.

They get around the myspace spam filter by not sending the same message to everyone; they use white on white text. You can see it if you highlight the text in the message. It seems they randomly vary the white on white text.

Profit? Probably from a fake Adult Friend Finder Profile or some other dating profile that encourages a join.

Myspace Tools

Forbes is reporting on the Cottage insustry that is popping up around Myspace. Sorry for YAMSA (yet another myspace article), but I’m convinced that “there’s gold in them there hills.”

Meanwhile, Louis Ramos, a freshman at Southern Illinois University, says he has made more than $200,000 since last June by running Pimpmyspace.com and Myspaceeditor.org, two Web sites that offer MySpace users free tools to upgrade and spruce up their profiles with colors and images. MySpace doesn’t build many customization options into users’ profiles.

You may find these Free Myspace tools from sourceforge helpful. (link was sent to me by SEO IrishWonder).

Myspace Brazil – AKA Orkut

The New York Times has an Interesting story on the explosive growth of Google’s Orkut in Brazil.

About 11 million of Orkut’s more than 15 million users are registered as living in Brazil — a remarkable figure given that studies have estimated that only about 12 million Brazilians use the Internet from home.

ut the sheer popularity of Orkut, which people can join by invitation only, has had several unexpected consequences. Almost as soon as Brazilians started taking over Orkut in 2004 — and long before April 2005, when Google made Orkut available in Portuguese — English-speaking users formed virulently anti-Brazilian communities like “Too Many Brazilians on Orkut.”

Personally, I don’t know how you can have too many Brazilians – they’re some of the most fun and best people in the world. And have you seen the women there?!? It’s unreal.

Tyra Banks on My Face . . . err . . . I mean Myspace

She must read my blog or something, because now Tyra Banks has her own myspace account that she is promoting through the Tyra Banks show. I swear, every 20th profile on myspace is another fake Paris Hilton profile: Banks is kinda late to the game.

But seriously, leveraging myspace is a great idea for Celebs. What better way to connect with such a large base of fans?

The Value of Myspace

Forbes has an intersting article on how NewsCorp may be undervalued considering it’s recent acquisition of myspace.

With a market cap of 53 billion and 23.86 Billion in revenues last year, NewsCorp might be an interesting play for capatalizing on the explosive growth of myspace. I always thought that $600 million or whatever they paid for myspace was a real bargain. I remember back in 1999 when bluemountain.com was bought for more than that (what a joke!). Sure it’s not 1999 again, but check out the graph for myspace’s traffic growth for the last 2 years:

Myspace Growth Graph

It’s pretty sick.

Has anyone here had any serious success tapping into and monotizing the myspace market? With something like a single girl site, using adult friend finder, or getting tons of myspace friends and driving them to your sites? I actually get search traffic for “myspace friends”, are any of the commercially available bots to add friends worth using?

Have You Been Focusing on the Wrong Traffic Engine?

I don’t mean you should be focusing on Yahoo or MSN.

I talkin’ about Myspace.

Via nivi’s del.icio.us (which is insanely good!) we find paul.kedrosky post on myspace stats:

  • 150,000 new users a day during the first half of November, up from about 100,000 a day last summer
  • 24.2 million unique users in October, up 12% from 21.6 million in September
  • 11.6 billion page views in October (up from 9-billion in September), displacing eBay as the fourth-busiest site on the net
  • More page views than any Internet destination except Yahoo, AOL, and MSN.
  • Twice the page views as Google which logged 6.6 billion in October.
  • It dawned on me a few weeks ago that I should start focusing on Myspace when I saw myspace.com/blogthings, a profile with 17340 friends that leads to blogthings.com.

    Clearly Myspace is not the right demographic for SEO black hat or for many of the blogs in this neghborhood, but for consumer focus it’s pretty sweet.

    Of note on blogthings:

    1. The focus of the syndication buttons:

    AOL, Myspace, Livejournal, Xanga.

    2. The Alexa rank (2,266) and

    3. How it’s reach shot up from nil to ~575/million in about 7 months.

    I understand that Alexa is not that accurate, but it doesn’t suck as much as you might think. Once you get into the top 50,000 it’s OK and actually gets pretty accurate under 10,000.

    4. Consumer focused “Link bait” geared towards Myspace type sites.

    5. The prominent Adsense ads in the hot spot of the site.

    Spamming Marketing to Myspace is nothing new . . . but it’s new to me.

    Right now, Sammy IS my hero. But I don’t even want 20,000,000 Myspace friends in 28 hours.

    I just want to pick up about 200 Friends per day on ~500 different accounts – (automated of course).

    Is that so much to ask?
