    do a simply google search will get all the info you need pretty fast

    In search engine optimization (SEO) terminology, black hat SEO refers to the use of aggressive SEO strategies, techniques and tactics that focus only on search engines and not a human audience, and usually does not obey search engines guidelines.

    Some people would even argue that white hat SEO is black hat SEO. According to some people on here, "In Google's eyes, all SEO is black hat".
