I dont think you'd class this as blackhat but if it is i do apologise and if i mod could move it that would be great! I'm currently in the process of making a website, well just started yesterday lol. And i thought what if i just copied the source code from my competitions website and just change it to what i want? So I have a decent layout. The question is will would it effect me trying rank in google? Or wouldnt google just not care? or notice? If anyone could help me that'd be great.
