Agreed Most of us have a families et al to support. Google (errr Cutts) claims they want quality content etc etc BUT when the chips are down and the alog keeps getting updated, it's the blackhat seo which reins supreme every damn time. My main site which averaged 6.5K a month in unique and converted those players into 70+ new depositing players per month, since 2007, has all but dried up. It's a clean site and always has been. If I didn't have other sites and a decent established player base, I'd be up-sh#t-creek thanks to Google. So it doesn't suprise me other affiliates are now favouring blackhat seo over sticking to Google's recommendations. Cause frankly, doing the right thing gets you penalised!
