rants from the dark side of marketing

Real vs fake

Take a loyal wife and an asshole husband. No, not a wife. Take a woman that gets paid from the asshole for her services. Assholes finish first, hence she will have to fake it, to please the asshole. A pleased asshole will pay more and since her intention is to get paid, that would be in her best interest.

Having real content is nice and all but at the end of the day you do it to get paid. Pleasing Google is not easy and faking it is easier than not, if that’s even possible.

As she begins to fake it, she will become better at it and after a point the asshole won’t be able to tell the difference.

Fake content is evolving to become as similar as it can to real content. We get better at faking it as time goes by.

The question is, what happens when the asshole can’t tell the difference?

PS: also don’t pay attention to the crap I write

That’s a good way of looking at it. Never thaught of it that way before. :)

brad Says:

Makes sense to me. What i find interesting though is the level of faking people go to and how they label themselves by it. If they only fake some of the time, then they consider themselves whitehat or “internet marketers” . At least blackhats are honest enough to admit they fake it. But I don’t much.
