    Very few people on BHW are actually black hat. Simply just posting links or building a PBN doesn't make someone blackhat. The ones that are black hat are doing something such as warez or other shady activities online.

    Why is it people think black hat = shady/illegal. Srsly, WHY?
    I thought black hat (as opposed to white hat) simply referred to the idea of deliberately manipulating search engines to show websites higher in rankings by abusing knowledge of how the algorithms operate. I don't know where all this shady shit comes from... Sure, black hat methods might get you penalized in Google, but they won't get you sued...

    Because that is what the term original started about close to 100 years ago.

    Blackhat is fun. Alot of fun. Big numbers quickly, on everything. But it's risky for the newbies.

    Totally, they get sold on all these scammers who suck money for services that could ultimately get your site punished by Google...

    Private Blog Network. A network of blogs owned by a single entity which when done correctly outwardly appears to be a normal blog with real visitors etc. These blogs are then used to increase the ranking of other websites.

    There are many methods to improve search engine placement without penalising your website. It all starts with good on page optimisation and then continues into high quality back link building, when done correctly poor links will never point directly at your website.

    Thank you, glad you found the info useful.

    At the end of the day Google is making the algo better and better every year, meaning its not as easy to game so people are less likely to share whats working for them.

    Those days are over.

    It's funny, when I first saw this site I was afraid to visit it. I thought I'd get a virus or something. Then I actually read it and realized that it had something to offer even the whitest of white hats.

    I don't care about the colour of my hat.

    I recognize the value in pretty much every strategy, and do a risk-v-reward analysis on a case by case basis to decide what is the best course of action.

    If it's a clients site, then the risk of doing something black hat is very high and the reward is normally not worth it. So I go white hat.

    If it's a T2 site for one of my personal projects, then I go black hat.

    If it's social media, and I think it would be beneficial to bot, or buy accounts, or buy likes, then I may go grey hat.

    I don't think I'd like to work with anyone who is strictly on one side of the fence.

    The reason why you won't find many BH SEO case studies here is simply because black hat links don't work for SEO anymore. Don't listen to people who claim they do.
    PBN still works, but powerful domains are getting way too expensive and difficult to get, and you need to build your network in a way that's hard to call "blackhat" anymore, if you wish it to last. In a two-three years, PBN method will be dead as well.

    Of course there are other blackhat things you can do in internet marketing, but their not connected to ranking websites. Have a nice day!
