Black Hat search engine optimization is customarily defined as techniques that are used to get higher search rankings in an unethical manner. These black hat SEO techniques usually include one or more of the following characteristics:

1) breaks search engine rules and regulations
2) creates a poor user experience directly because of the black hat SEO techniques utilized on the Web site
3) unethically presents content in a different visual or non-visual way to search engine spiders and search engine users.

Any optimization tactic that causes a site to rank more highly than its content would otherwise justify, or any changes made specifically for search engines that don't improve the user's experience of the site. In other words, optimizations that are against search engine guidelines. If you step too far over the mark, your site may be penalized or even removed from the index.

Black hat SEO is procedure that tries to achieve high rankings in short time by using various SEO techniques that don't follow search engine guidelines, or treated as means of deception. One black hat technique uses text that is hidden, either as text colored similar to the background, in an invisible div, or positioned off screen.

Black hat seo is the process by which we achieve serp’s placement using tactics that are completely unethical. The results are immediate but will not last. When we are caught implementing black hat seo we can face severe consequences like site banning.
These are some of the techniques..
• cloaking and false redirects
• automatically generated doorway pages
• misspelling of well-known web sites
• excessive keyword stuffing
• pages loaded with irrelevant words that do not match the subject
• duplicated content on multiple pages
• hidden text or hidden links
• unrelated and centralized link farms
