    It depends if you know what you're doing or not.

    If you don't know what you're doing, you can very easily damage your website.

    However if you are skilled in the black arts, you may never be hit by Google (or at least for a long time).

    Long term google catches everybody out, whitehat and blackhat.

    But whitehat has a much better chance of staying

    My rule is for real businesses use whitehat
    for aff etc use blackhat

    I DIDN'T FAIL. I JUST FOUND 2,000 WAYS NOT TO MAKE A LIGHTBULB; I ONLY NEEDED TO FIND ONE WAY TO MAKE IT WORK. - T Edison

    The same is true for SEO. What works today may not work tomorrow... Perseverance my friend!

    If Google knows what you are doing then yes of course its bad for your site.
    But the trick is to make it look like genuine traffic/sharing etc and not like blackhat SEO.

    If you are new to it the best way is to build throw away sites that you can try to rank and if they fail you can start with a new site.

    It is the same as anything you do ever in life, there is always the possibility it will fail, no matter what type of hat you put on you might still end up doing something G will not like and boom before you know what hit you, you will be out of the rankings for good. I read a post by a blackhatter here not long ago, He said there was no type of hat really as we are all working towards the same goal. The key on the other hand is to find out what works and if you know it will get your site in trouble make sure you do everything right and don't get caught.

    You need to state for yourself - if you will get caught(and most likely you will if you ask such a question) - you will not going to suffer much - you will just smile and go further armed with a better knowledge!

    This will make sure that you will enjoy this challenge and will not going to rip you apart.

    Good Luck!

    Every SEO method has advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantage of blackhat SEO is shortlived rankings and earnings, and the main advantage is that the rankings and earnings (if you chose a profitable keyword) come faster. So, decide whether you want short-term gains or long-term gains and choose accordingly between blackhat, whitehat, or both (greyhat).

    Well, given that this is a black hat seo forum, and people are banking off of black hat seo.
    I'd say the answer is pretty much out in the open.

    But its harmful if you dont know what you're doing. If done right, it'll be a tremendous boost for your rankings.

    Agreed, for long term use white hat. Suggest having a mix of both white and black. Because black is where you do your testing anyway

    Don't go for black hat seo it will only harm ur website rankings and then it will be really hard to get rankings back.

    If your site has alot of unique and good content quality Black Hat SEO can't hurt your site.

    For the first few months I would use only white hat SEO and keep on adding quality content.After getting a stable rank in SERP, i would add link to PBNs and WEB2.0. Use GSA only for tier 1 and not on money site.

    If you are talking about manual linkbuilding with GSA blast for tier 2 links I have seen success rate of 95% and above out of 100 websites. So, I don't find it that harmful.

    Don't ever do it! Matt knows it all. You will rather consider WHITE HAT and wait 3-4 years to rank for 1 medium competitive keyword.
