    Hi all, I am completely new to SEO and trying to get to grips with ideas and strategies. Obviously 'black hat' seems to be very different from 'white hat'. Some articles I have read suggest that blackhat methods cannot be used as a long term strategy to promote a specific business' web site. What is the discussion behind this argument here? Can the methods be used on a regular basis (or in a certain way) without negative impact?

    Black hat is not going to give you long and stable results, for that reason, it would be a sustainable strategy if you were able to get tons of clients by offering "cheap" bh services with powerful short term results.

    On the other hand, you would be targeting a very small segment of the market, and in my opinion, it would probably not be the best way forward. That being said, it might work for you as it is working for many people.

    This is absolutely true. But I would go so far as to say that ANY manipulation of the SERPS *could* land you in hot water with google, no matter what color hat you have on. You cannot manipulate google without risk.

    Donot worry too much about hats they are just definitions created by old experts of SEO :) may be... Even under the eyes of Big G if you create any kind of backlink to promote your website that is too somewhere gray/black hat itself.

    So instead of worrying too much about white/grey/black hats I will recommend you as you joined already this forum read and research there is tons of information available how you can make a good SEO Strategy for yourself and also yes... keep yourself updated with every good update and SEO market changes so you keep your SEO always good and upto date what Big G needs...

    My 2 cents for you...

    Blackhat SEO is all about making quick money and investing in long term projects and nowadays there is no "whitehat seo" as any kind of SEO is termed as blackhat by Google nowadays.

    But if you want to proceed with your business website then make sure you have the control over the links like for eg, you can own those sites which are linking to your business site(Blog network).

    Still if you wanna be too safe then produce killer content and network with people in your niche. That's the only way I guess

    Everything is sustainable in business if you keep going while at the same time being acutely aware that what worked yesterday may not work today...

    In other words work hard continuously using the latest best techniques and methods that will work for the immediate future and hopefully beyond into the future...:cool:

    with whitehat method which basically means you promote your site through adwords, and other types to gain traffic, some guy who likes your site will create an article about it and give you a link pointing to your site. blackhat and grayhat falls within creating backlinks yourself.

    Whitehat method will allow your site to climb up and keep gaining authority as time passes by. Your serp will fall down or rank up but you will never be permanently banned from the serps.
    Blackhat and greyhat can get you permanently banned from the serps.
    If you are a big business like Sears, burlington coat factory, or any business that is making lots of money in the Internet then I highly suggest not to go blackhat.
