Is building links from some Web 2.0 properties considered blackhat SEO?
Probably any backlinks you build yourself(not natural), or anything that doesn't put money into the G's pocket.
From your POV: anything made by yourself is blackhat.
From Google's POV:
Blackhat is anything obvious that it was built by yourself/ low quality/ spam. You've got the point.
If you build something which google can't tell that it's artificial, then it's at least gray hat.
If you create a high quality PBN without any obvious footprints, then that's white hat.
The color of the hat is just a guideline. Are you ranking in the first page and you stay below the radar? Then you shouldn't give a fuck.
If you've built the links that are pointing to your site yourself or paid for them then you're participating in BH SEO (according to Google). Any link that is not 100% naturally attained will deem your site to be participating in BH link-building practices.
Any kind of offsite SEO is blackhat. There isn't anything as "white hat SEO" at all. Maybe onsite optimisation at best. If you build links, you break Google ToS and as far as I know, that qualifies as black hat.
Anything that's against google tos is black hat. So basically anything that is done to manipulate your rank in the serps is black hat.
Any form or buying links is the obvious way to look at this.
Off page seo could be classed as blackhat.
Only adwords is white hat. Everything else is very very bad thing to do, Google is the only pure and honest entity on the WWW, we all are profane.
Any link you build, be it Guest posting, PBN, Web2.0s, edu, donation links, scholarships, social media, etc is consider blackhat.
if you write your address in "Your website url" field on board, what hat is it?
Black hat seo can be considered anything you do in attempt to manipulate google's algorithm for rankings.
Black Hat SEO represents the use of competitive SEO techniques, methods and strategies that concentrate only on google and not a human viewers, and usually does not follow google recommendations.
any linkbuilding which is not natural is blackhat
Link building is black and black is good for us. White consume a lot of money with a lot of risk (of not achieving what you want).
Techniques that you're doing against Google guidelines to rank your site is considered as blackhat. Hope you know the Google's guidelines.
Everyone will have their own definition on this but personally I class white hat SEO as anything that sticks to the Google webmaster guidelines. I class black hat SEO as anything that deviates from them and I personally don't beleive there is gray hat seo, to me you either stick to the guidelines or you dont.
Building links no matter where they come from are considered blackhat.
In Google's eyes, any intention of building links to manipulate rankings is considered blackhat. To counter the thought of it, just make sure you do link building naturally, don't spam, build quality content. That will minimize risks.
The answer is simple, @ionross
SEO with black hat
Usually, this type of persona is a gentleman with an inclination to do bad things, considered as sexy and charming by a lot of girls. Later given the name "bad boy"
Example of a true black hat:
When you build links, regardless of how you do it, it is called blackhat.
