what does mean BlackHat?
Well in SEO two major terms are used Black Hat and White Hat.
ok which one is better for my site?
White hat is safe. Black hat will rank you higher and faster
In SEO and other related stuff, I would say: "out of the box methods or techniques"
I wouldn't say it's cheating (definitely not hacking) but testing and playing with algorithms. Is it bad? It depends on your perspective. Is it illegal similar to hacking? No, but some definitely violating TOS.
Historically, black hats = the bad guys. So we are the bad guys.
Changed my mind. Now I'm a bad guy.
Black hat SEO is using tactics that are aggressive and have no regard for Google's webmaster guidelines. This includes cloaking, buying links, creating spammy links with GSA, etc. This is the type of SEO that most people are doing on this forum because when you intentionally create any link for yourself you are violating Google's webmaster guidelines. There's nothing wrong with black hat SEO, just know that if you get caught Google has every right to hit you because you aren't following the rules.
White hat SEO is creating a site and letting it grow organically. This is done by creating social media accounts and sharing posts about your site. If one of your posts become viral than you will receive a flood of traffic and backlinks will naturally form as people link and share your site. This is the type of SEO that Google likes because it does not manipulate your rankings in the search engines. Unfortunately, not a lot of people pursue white hat SEO because most of us are in this to make money. And you can't make money efficiently if you're waiting for your site to go viral. Which is why we do black hat SEO to speed up the process and hopefully not get caught.
Black hat SEO - creating websites for search engines
White hat SEO - creating websites for humans
