rants from the dark side of marketing

Here comes a new wave of spam

PG Insider is pretty much the best bundle of blackhat software you can buy right now, unless of course you make your own. It doesn’t include a site generator, but it works with RSSGM (which is free) and Niche Creator (which costs $500). It will allow you to build lots of sites from a central installation.

Adwords Black Book

I read the Adwords Black Book yesterday and it was a pretty good read, especially since I don’t have much experience with Adwords. Not that it’s a complete adwords guide but I found some new strategies that I’ll try and probably make some money.

$197 for around 90 pages with quite a bit of “filler” but also quite a bit of useful info. Get it here.
