Avoiding Black Hat SEO

What is black hat SEO?

Any SEO strategy that goes against googles webmaster guidelines is BLACK HAT.


1: Keyword Stuffing: “We are in the business of selling cheap mobile phones. Cheap mobile phones are what we sell if you are thinking of getting a cheap mobile phone then check out our store for the best cheap mobile phones”

2: Getting links from SPAMMY websites: Avoiding websites that have free access of writing and don’t have a review mechanism in place.

3: Cloaking and redirects: Using a different page to show to the user and showing a different page to the search engine/ crawler.

4: Paid Links: In many cases you might come across people who will provide links in return of money. There is a fine line to make sure it doesn’t fall in BLACK HAT.
