On Threadwatch today I saw that blackhat seo has announced on his blog that he is sarting a new exclusive forum for 100$ a month.
If been pinged by a few people about this. Here is my take on the deal:
(Lets take money out of the mix for a second).
I think its interesting someone is making a exclusive forum and charging a decent price for it. I mean for free you can see what forums there are there and most of them are not even black hat related but more webmaster related.
sidenote: BTW if altering your pages so search engines will rank them better is blackhat then isnt all seo blackhat seo ? Hrmm who knows.
I think I will sign up for a few months and see how it goes. I love to see what is and isnt working in the blackhat world.
1) If the 1 on 1 mentoring is half as good as its claimed on the sale page for security reasons alone I think its worth the price. Rsnake and the other admins can probably tell you in no time if your site is vulnerable to exploits.
2) Its nice to talk about the way things really work in a private forum and not have to coat everything with white hat sauce.
Anyway is it worth it for you ? If your askinging then its probably not.
