    Conclusion
    This list covers the popular forms of black hat SEO, but all shady techniques should be avoided. If ethics alone aren't a deterrent: Performing black hat SEO can lead to a damaged reputation, getting websites banned from search engines, and even lawsuits for copyright infringement.

    There are plenty of ways to legitimately improve website visibility in the SERPs. It may take time for a Web page or website to become popular, but it's a process that has a better chance of surviving in the long-term. Remember that the goal is to provide a service to visitors. Once you do that, with white hat SEO, the rest will follow.

    Is mirror site blackhat?
    And what exactly is a mirror site? Are those sites that give you multiple mirror links to download a file?

    A mirror site, is when you copy someone elses entire site (content, design etc. etc.) and upload it to your own hosting account/accounts thehereby creating duplicate content which will force google to make a choice about which one to show in the serps, meaning that if you have a stronger backlink profile most often google will rank your site instead of the original, the technique is often used were the mirrored site is uploaded to multiple hosts in order to derank the orriginal plus if one of the mirrorsites gets takken down due to DMCA requests you'll just redirect the links for that page to another of your mirror sites.

    Many people say that the old days of black hat are long gone and blah blah.

    I believe this "not worth the effort" is over hyped.

    I really need to test some of these...such as hidden text and such.

    Is "back button redirect" something that should be avoided as well?
