Search Engine Guide Blogger


Generally speaking, Black Hat SEO is any SEO tactics that are not strictly in line with the guidelines published by the major search engines (such as Google).

A more accurate description would be "high risk optimization." The search engine guidelines do not carry the weight of law, so it isn't as though one will go to jail for employing black hat tactics. However, it is quite common for websites to be banned or penalized for attempting black hat SEO, making it a risky proposition, especially for someone who doesn't know what he/she is doing.

There are as many different potential tactics as there are people pursuing black hat SEO. Some are more effective than others; in my experience, the vast majority of so-called "black hat" tactics are instead simply "dumb" tactics. There are a few true black hat experts who really know what they're doing, but they generally don't share their tactics with the outside world -- because they know if they did, a whole bunch of "black hat wannabees" would jump on the tactic and ruin it for everyone.

The whole point of black hat tactics is to fly under the radar of the search engines. When a tactic comes into widespread usage, particularly by unskilled individuals who don't know proper techniques for hiding what they're up to, the search engines find it easy to counteract, and the tactic quickly becomes useless.

We do not promote or discuss specific black hat tactics on this forum. That's not what we're about here.

participate on discussions or any way on social media is white hat. Manipulating, that is, pretending to participate, to acquire just links is black hat.
But i don't understand why people want to speak on what is black hat? Just promote content spread a word, blog it. Discussing on black hat is not of much value.

Black hat SEO Technique is the technique in which we use illegal issues like copy content, copy image, cloaking etc for the good ranking of our website. This technique is not good for long term SEO.

Black Hat SEO is most commonly defined as a disapproved practice that increases a page's ranking in a search engine result page (SERP). These practices are against the search engine's terms of service and can result in the site being banned from the search engine and affiliate sites.

Link Manipulation - Buying links, advertorials, and link schemes

Article Spinning

Link Schemes

Link Farms

Link Wheels

Link Networks

Rich Snippet Markup Spam

Automated Queries to Google

Creating pages, subdomains, or domains with duplicate content

Pages with malicious behavior, such as phishing, viruses, trojans, and other malware.

According to experts, you must use 80% white hat SEO techniques and employ 20% or less black hat SEO in your campaigns to avoid getting banned by search engines. However, I recommend that you use white hat SEO only.

Arrow The #1 risk for SEO fools is…

The highest-risk game plan in SEO is Grey Hat SEO (Gray Hat in the USA). That's where you try to hoodwink the Search Engines into thinking Black Hat tactics are really White Hat tactics.

It’s a game played by people driven by laziness, greed, desperation, ignorance and gullibility (or, if you're really persistent, stoopidity).

Thank the SEO "industry" for that… their mindless, relentless quest to get themselves or their clients SERP rankings that they simply don't deserve, using Black Hat and Grey Hat tactics mostly, combined with their insane belief that Google is staffed by people as stupid as themselves, resulted in retaliation by the major Search Engines — especially Google, in the form of Panda, Penguin, etc updates and a complete reworking of its search algorithm.

Now the game has changed. Quality content and backlinks have finally replaced quantity.

PPC will help to attract visitors — but if your site's content isn't authoritative and well-presented, you can kiss those expensive visitors goodbye, fast.

Here's a link to a helpful article:


I know these three techniques people use to do seo, but I heard about a fourth one as well: Red Hat. Has anyone heard about this term in seo?
You can read more at the link below. The author, Linda Buquet, claims to have invented the term as it's used in the article. It applies specifically to optimizing Google Places listings in order to include third-party reviews now ignored by Google since it was sued by Yelp! and other review sites in 2011.


If you're thinking of trying Red Hat SEO as Linda describes it, bear in mind that Google Places became Google+ Local a couple of years ago, then recently was absorbed into Google My Business.
