You know what I see almost everyday on my google analytics?
People are googling "How to make money illegally"?
They are getting my article Fast Cash: 29 ways to make money in one day or less and every single day I see "How to make money illegally" in the keywords section.
Woah! Looking for ways to get rich quick etc that's okay. But actually specifying illegally - Wow!
The "real" world?
Hop the cops are following them.
Google searches work on the premise of keywords. In your case, they found almost all the words in your hub between the title and body of it.
This is what it says:
Quick Cash - 29 "ways to make money "in one day or less ...

Here are 29 practical ways to get money in one day or less with little or no money. ... They cannot make something "illegal "that you do in your mind. They can
But on that note, since when is card counting and begging legal, not to mention ethical?
Card counting is not illegal and neither is begging in most cities. It maybe unethical for some but personally I don't see anything unethical about it. If you have to beg ..well it's sad, but it's not unethical.
Brie, I was referring to your particular hub where you talked about being because the man in front of Starbucks made at least $200 and he got lunch. I don't think what he us doing I'd unethical. U think hiking about and considering doing it, too, when you don't need to beg is unethical.
I stand corrected on the card counting. I thought it was illegal. Well, it is certainly unethical and as far as I know, it is definitely cheating.
Well, I'm not judging them. Personally, I hope I never get to a point where I have to beg and if someone does..well that's there business. They aren't stealing money, you don't have to give it to them. And as far as counting cards goes..I think casino's are the one's who are unethical not the people who try with their own mind to figure out how to win. It takes a lot of mental acuity to count cards..it's very difficult, I know, I've tried and couldn't do it. But, my hat is off to those who can do it. Gambling is a game and if they can tip the odds in their favor instead of against them..then more power to them!
Brie, not for me. I like sleeping at night with a clear conscience. Besides stealing is still a sin.
Good grief. Whatever became of the sense of self-esteem in making one's own prosperity?
Oh I don't know..why don't you ask all the politicians who have sent all the jobs overseas or who are allowing all the illegal aliens in this country to further bankrupt us.
That's an interesting and important topic, though I don't see how it defends whatever position you are taking on this subject. But since you raised this particular point: as Bernie Madoff proved to one and all, not everyone that takes advantage of others is a politician, a CEO of a huge corporation or just someone that has been exploited by the former two. Laziness, greed and the sincere dedication to screwing others really appears to be all that is required to become a successful jerk.
I won't worry about it. They look for illegal ways to make money and you are not giving it to them! In South Africa begging is not against the law, if it was many families will starve. The most ethical way in South Africa we have is "car guards" the "look" after your car while you are shopping, help you with your trolley and give you directions where you are leaving. Hard work for only a tip that some people does not even give them.
The other sign of the coin is that the poor shoppers cannot keep this up. So, leave the ones looking for illegal ways, you are giving them a better option, so good for you!
I doubt the cops are looking at it but it is rather unnerving to see this day after day after day.
Disclaimer: I have never searched for illegal ways to make money.
We live in an economy where the game is set up for people to lose. It is designed to give you enough hope to keep striving and allows an X number of people to make it to the top as evidence (aka every MLM in existence).
The laws change all the time. So when people start making legal money and suddenly a law is created to make it illegal, it has broken the backs of many entrepreneurs.
I think at some point people will start getting creative in the ways they try to survive in this harsh economy that was put on them by a corrupt and broken banking and government system.
Obviously they are Googling new ways to make money because they don't like the idea of being a hit man lol (Maybe these people still have a conscience)
That tells you how desperate they are to make money. They could go to the extent of killing just to have the money rolling in.
Guess you should probably write a hub about how to make money illegally And then the buzz kill at the end is a list of all the consequences and why it's not worth it in the long run
That's not a "bad" idea, other than the fact that it would get you permanently banned from HubPages and probably most other sites.
I'm guessing there's a pretty good chance that's one hub that is likely to be stolen. lol.
What's the problem? They search for ways to make money illegally, land on your article, discover how to make money legally instead, and with their new knowledge avoid a life of crime. You're a hero, Brie. Are you in cahoots with Batman?
calculus-geometry, love the logic. rates up there with my creative bookkeeping. i think in absence of the word illegally, the search criteria are connecting with legal, or, how to make money is the trigger. either way, i thank calculus-geometry is right. many a crime detective will not be singing your praises, Brie Hoffman. they'll be hitting the bread lines due to a cessation of criminal activity and all thanks to you.
Don;t worry, be positive. i agree with the opinion of calculus-geometry.
I've googled it before, usually when trying to figure out how to make $1 million without going through the normal channels. But I didn't kill anyone OK?
That is disturbing. I look up things like that fairly regularly researching for my novel writing. No intention of doing anything illegal myself.
Maybe they were all aspiring banksters looking to find a way into becoming a hedge fund manager or derivatives trader?
Apparently most of the top 500 companies have a start from illegal activities, or can be traced back to the proceeds of crime.
Kennedy's dad was a bootlegger.
Bush's grandfather financed the Nazis
The general public's definition of legality varies from the elites concepts of legal activities, and if you understand that then life is simpler.
They keep their money, we keep our morals.
This made me think of the TV show Breaking Bad. A chemistry teacher starts cooking meth and selling it to make money illegally lol...
I can't believe people are typing that in a lot. Are there not security programs that know your activity? That's almost as bad as sending someone an email and saying you are going to **** them.
I happen to LOVE that show! I think that too many people are googling it, how in the world would you be able to do anything about it..you can't arrest someone for googling and there isn't enough manpower to watch everyone.
It wouldn't really take manpower, only bots. If they weren't already tracking what folks searched for, they certainly could not be tailoring results which we know they do to the individual. The questions become not only why, which I don't see how it could be for anything good for humanity, but further, why show such query strings at all? Sure, the program says x number of folks are searching for illegal ways to make money online but how do we know it's true? Even if it is, why show it? They surely filter and censor other things, why not this? It has to be a conscious choice by someone or everything would show and it doesn't. Just a thought.
There are worst "How To" on the internet. How To........is how the Boston Bombers got there instructions on what to do.
