    Hey,

    I need this question answered, as I don't know what to think lol.

    Does Google 'seriously' expect our 'money sites' to naturally get linked to in a whitehat fashion? Is this what Google actually defines whitehat as?

    I need your input on this, thanks everyone!

    No, they don't expect your money sites to get popular naturally. Actually they call most of those sites "thin sites" that are doomed to be neglected.

    They want each of us to create sites like digg facebook ehow etc. Something that matters.

    Hey,

    Thanks for your reply, and I agree.

    But in todays competitive age, it's quite hard to start up an authority site, unless you have some nice capital. Still, there is a little more room for these types of sites.

    Thanks again!

    I don't think you can define exactly what G wants, as their algo. is constantly changing.

    Just stick to producing quality content and links and you can't go far wrong.

    Ah yeah good old white hat SEO rules - here are some rules for G's page

    "Quality guidelines - basic principles

    Make pages primarily for users, not for search engines. Don't deceive your users or present different content to search engines than you display to users, which is commonly referred to as "cloaking."

    Avoid tricks intended to improve search engine rankings. A good rule of thumb is whether you'd feel comfortable explaining what you've done to a website that competes with you. Another useful test is to ask, "Does this help my users? Would I do this if search engines didn't exist?"

    Don't participate in link schemes designed to increase your site's ranking or PageRank. In particular, avoid links to web spammers or "bad neighborhoods" on the web, as your own ranking may be affected adversely by those links.

    Don't use unauthorized computer programs to submit pages, check rankings, etc. Such programs consume computing resources and violate our Terms of Service. Google does not recommend the use of products such as WebPosition Goldâ„¢ that send automatic or programmatic queries to Google."

    What they are saying is basically just build a quality site for the VISITORS, take care of on-page SEO (they actually have a PDF on this) and don't do any link building - wait for the links to come naturally to your site. And good luck ;)

    The only valid SEO in Google's eyes is on-page SEO.

    Hello dear,

    Actually white hat SEO means to have daily work on your website manually. And it is very impressive then black hat SEO.

    Thanks

    The way google defines white hat seo and their new algo's, everything they do is an effort to attract investors.. Just post good quality content on your website and get good quality backlinks but more importantly do not lose hope.. Google will be your bitch if you follow these guidelines

    Well, every thing which is done by keeping the guidelines strictly in mind is whitehat SEO.

    I believe, not all money sites are following black hat or grey hat tactics to pull traffic or getting rank high.

    There are many money website, which get linked to other sites naturally.

    If you are using manual techniques and no software and you are following the google rules while doing on-page and off-page SEO, you are considered as a white hat man by google.
