Effects of Black Hat SEO
 
Bad Bad SEO

If you are playing the wascally wabbit of SEO you are in for some serious trouble from the search engines. The debate about the ethical or unethical nature of black hat SEO techniques shall continue till someone looks they are about to cry. But, search engines are catching up on sneaky black hats and remodeling algorithm to keep them away. Most black hat SEOs were quite popular back in the day, when search engines were expanding their indices. But now they are just plain annoying.

Walk the plank, stowaway!

Hiding text in your tags and coding can prove quite beneficial but only for a while. Most search engines can now judge whether the number of keywords are in proportion to the content on the page. Hiding text by using light text on a light background, nowadays, also fails to do the trick. Google can now parse text as it crawls to detect whether the text is the same color as the background. If so, it gives the page a much lower ranking than otherwise. Hidden text if detected as spam makes a search engine very, very angry.

Please try the rear entrance

Doorway Pages Doorway pages are created for the sole purpose of manipulating search engine rankings. When they started out some sites had about 5 or more doorway pages taking up the top ten results of search engine listings. These pages started cluttering up search engine listings and hence, are now associated with risks of penalization from search engines. Machine generated cookies i.e. doorway pages which are identical except for with regard to their target keywords run the biggest risk. Search engines find it difficult to decipher them automatically and avoid them altogether.

Web page taxidermy

On an average, leading search engines such as Google, MSN and Yahoo, 60-65% is the allowed keyword prominence. Which means you can stuff about 60-65% RELEVANT keywords into your META tags and content. But using Cameron Diaz's pictures as a keyword over a 100 times when your website is selling auto spare parts is a definite no-no. Keyword stuffing is recognized quite easily as spam by search engines, as they measure the proportion of keywords to the content of the page. Excessive use of keyword stuffing in the tags or other search engine welcome mats would most likely trip a spam filter. Keywords stuffed into the visible content on your page cause users to switch from the webpage faster than you can say Oh!. If users cannot make head or tail of your web page content they will not convert, if they don't convert you don't make any money, if you don't make any money then your poor and your stuck with a no good website.

Black Hat SEO Both black hat and white hat SEO techniques can provide short term and long term results, but white hat SEO may not get your site permanently banned from search engine indices. Black hat SEOs on the other hand run the colossal risk of getting website permanently banned. Search engines are out to please their target customers i.e. the searchers. They wish to provide them with relevant, meaningful and useful results and not results with highest number of keywords that make no sense, shady text and invisible pages. If you make them look stupid in front of their target audience they are not going to like it. And like the mob, the search engines never forget.

Black hat SEO may work for you but if you are running serious business you will probably want to succeed in the long run. Though you can see immediate results with black hat sometimes, this does not guarantee that those results will last long.

It only means that never ever try to cheat Google if you really want to succeed in your online business. Or else, all your time, effort and money will just be useless. Always do the right way.

For people that swear by only knowing white hat seo and never meddling in black hat, they are either lying, because everyone gets curious sometime (and letís not forget, some tactics labeled BH now at some point was considered legal and WH years ago) or they are selling themselves short by not learning as much as they can about SEO.

Hi,

If you are playing with black hat SEO then your website or keywords are in serious trouble. Black hat optimisation techniques have this effect because they deliberately break the rules. Many of webmasters are using that technique they increase their result very fast but after their site will penalized by many of search engine.

Black Hat SEO is tricky way to trap web spider to get high page rank. I would like to suggest, perform white hat seo instead of black hat seo.

Re: Effects of Black Hat SEO
 
I would not recommend Black hat seo , because its illegal way to optimize the website....like
- Automatic comment posting
- Automatic blog posting & many more.
These steps can be spam your website.. as well block your traffic source of your website.

On the other hand, White hat seo- always gives good and stable result for a particular project.

Thanks for such replies.
