    Since when did Google's ToS become law?

    People really need to learn how the internet works.

    The majority of BHW are ex-convicts. If you want to use black hat seo I would first move to a country with no extradition.

    The FBI's SEO task force is no joke. They work close with Google. Get caught inflating your metrics against policy and it's a minimum of 5 years in prison (Federal time).

    Considering every other post is sarcasm, I think you deserve a proper answer; no, blackhat SEO is not illegal - it is however in violation of Google webmaster guidelines which could get your site penalised (deindexed) if they find out. Of course, 'whitehat' SEO could also get your site penalised as all forms of manual link building aren't technically allowed, but it is less likely. The only catch is that is takes a very long time to rank with 'whitehat' techniques compared to 'blackhat' techniques.

    You'll be fine. Just read the forum and ask questions before doing whatever BH thing it is you decide to do so you don't get banned from search or slapped down.

    Funny but yes, most members on this forum have served a jail sentence for building backlinks that Google didn't like.
