White hat SEO means using methods and tactics approved by search engines, for instance, using legit traffic method, not masking ads in the site content, using appropriate keywords, building backlinks from related niches and from high authority sites etc. However, what is Black hat SEO methods? Can anyone elaborate on this topic?

I am not well versed with SEO terminology. However, I know white hat refers to legit SEO tactics and black hat refers to illegal SEO tactics. Black hat SEO includes using automated backlink generator, using traffic exchange site, using clickbait headlines and keywords etc.

Black Hat SEO is the opposite of White Hat SEO, ROFL.

  • White Hat SEO is playing by Google guidelines when building backlinks.
  • Grey Hat SEO is dancing between white and black seo.
  • Black Hat SEO is not playing by Google guidelines when building backlinks.

There is only one true way you can get White SEO backlinks, and that is to put out quality content that people want to see, then your links will get shared over the internet, and this can take a really long time, and buying backlinks is not White Hat SEO.

You can do any kind of SEO, however, when you start building backlinks yourself, then there is no guarantee your link building plan will work since google will ultimately decide if your backlink is worth having, if not, then it is a mark against you. Google uses many factors in order to rate your site, including backlinks, quality of content, link building, SEO, etc...

Do it right....
or lose it forever...

Black hat seo is not only related to generating backlinking. Black hat seo is also related to the use of keywords, meta tags, meta descriptions. For example, you target keywords just because it gets more hits when your content is not related to keyword, it is a black hat seo.

There is a think line that divides black hat and white had, sometimes these lines are blurred. For instance, link farm, link wheel, and private blog network are used in black hard SEO as well as white hat.

Some people like to categorize Grey Hat as a technique that is just between Black Hat and White Hat, however, some people like to use Grey Hat as another term for Black Hat. You should always try to do White Hat. Sometimes Black Hat Might bring resuts very quickly, however, ultimately you will be penalized by search engines and ad networks for using Black Hat.
