I was researching Social Media Bookmarking Bots, looking for reviews of SocialBot 4.0, DirectoryBot, BMD, etc and I came across this post in a, shall we say, "shady" site.
|You delete the word "manually" from your dictionary and run like hell from it when you go BlueFart. Well automation is what I´m trying to accomplish. That´s the main purposes of bots(automated softwares.)|
Which brings me to the question in the title of this thread:
- Is Automation Black Hat?
- Is it viewed that way on WF, despite the "automation" WSO's I see every week?
- Is it viewed that way by BigG? Can you get sand-boxed?
- Moral and/or ethical probelms with "automating" for a client as opposed to just for your personal sites?
I don't know, honestly, which is why I ask. I was thinking automation was a good tool, now I'm not so sure...
