      Send black hats to Australia eh? I resent that! We’re not THAT dodgy :P

    2. Agent SEO says:

      I suggest a cage match!!!

    3. ‘There’s no such thing… it’s what you can get away with’ FTW

    4. Sonny, does that mean SMX Sydney is a black-hat event? :)

    5. Sonny Truyen says:

      You will just have to come next year and see I reckin.. I do remember lots of interesting stuff being talked about at the back of our drunken boatload of SEOs

    6. Would love to go back to Sydney, it’s a long way to go for a conference but could be a good excuse!

    7. Really glad to see this go hot on Sphinn!

      What i find funny is the way that naturally everyone started to just started referring to black hats as pirates.

      Make em all wear eye patches!

    8. tahir says:

      they get penalized by search engine sooner than later, so i think we should not bother

    9. Lucas Ng says:

      I love this video, especially the comments of blackhats or ‘former’ blackhats in there…

      Also, Mike Grehan, we’re not offended, please do send all the blackhats over to Australia :)

      Every conferences should be filled with videos like this – entertaining and showing the lighter side of our industry. Made my Friday!

      As a true BH pirate, I promise (on my pirate’s honor) to wear my black eye-patch at all times so that mighty G may easily identify and consign all my websites to Hades, never to be ranked again in the sight of decent folk…………

      Tried to write a cool comment, but I keep buckling over laughing at the sheer irony of it all. LOL
