Didn't Google hate blackhat? How I blog about a blackhat niche?
You can blog about it without any problems, you just can't use it to promote your blog =)
Are you sure you want to delete this post?
Yeah there is a different between having a site or forum or blog that talks about blackhat stuff and sites that actually do blackhat methods to try and get better SERP rankings with. Google wont penalize a site for talking about blackhat stuff such as a blog or forum as a penalty would only take place if one of the algorithms detected it. However, a blog or forum in that niche can be frowned upon by some people such as possibly those on the Google web-spam team. Although they are taught to remain totally bias at the end of the day, if something was detected and a penalty was applied to it by one of the algorithms and you needed to do a manual reconsideration request then there's a chance they wont remove it purely because of the type of site that it is. Let's face it, the reason they have to invest in all these algorithms and updates is because of all the blackhat stuff that's done in the first place so they might not want to help a site like that. That's all I'm saying.
