    Just a heads up to our White Hats. I have been building legitimate sites for 15 years without any black hat techniques and some of them deliver outstanding results. About an hour ago I posted a new entry to a niche directory/blog (well, it's a directory but uses WP). About 30 minutes later I am receiving the first Google hits from number 5 position. It's not a very competitive term, but building a brand new site around it, would take much more effort to rank than having an authority site with just a new article. Sometimes, white hats have an edge :)

    Hey, Im totally into authority sites. I dont use plain whitehat linkbuilding, its automated but in my opinion invisible to google. I keep a close watch on the link velocity when I build backlinks. Whitehat sites produce value and bring a lot of returning visitors. Thats whats important in the long run.

    Totally agree. Authority sites are web real estate...keep adding to them and they just age like a fine wine. I still have niche sites but when they are slowly getting left behind as I concentrate on my sites that have age,quality and weight

    You think that until your authority site just randomly gets hit by googles next "animal" update...

    I mean, white hat definitely has advantages, but as Google gets crazier and crazier, I'm personally starting to prefer blackhat more and more.

    It happens. Had one site go from 5k a day to just 1k for no reason. But I have many of such sites. So for each that goes down, another one moves up.

    Both black and white hat have their advantages and disadvantages. Find a spot in-between that you're comfortable with and you'll be set.
