Does Black Hat work anymore?

by Arun Sivaraj 14 replies
One crazy question for you guys (maybe one demanding a suggestion against the ethics of proper SEO).
One of my clients wants me to rank their website on the first page of google in US within a couple of weeks. They are basically a tech support company and they never mind what black hat SEO techniques I resort to as long as they get the results/traffic real quick.
They don't even bother if their site gets de-indexed in the long run. Is this possible? If so how? Any suggestions? I found this quite intriguing and challenging at the same time!

    If black hat didn't work, Google wouldn't put in so much effort to fight against it.

    Massive PBN'S and Web 2.0 can do, but again if your plan is to use Black Hat methods then how can you even think of ranking high

    don;t use your precious time with black hat OP. stop planning to ever use this strategy before you regret it in the future.

    rank on first page is not that hard ... gray hat will do with pbn and no crazy anchor text. rank on the top 3 maybe.

    black hat just won't work any more as how can you do black hat if your anchor text does not count? but to be honest I would not have any idea but here is the key - just DO IT - hahaha ... your chance to do crazy stuffs you can't do with legitimate companies -

    sounds like they are broke and desperate. If so they aren't paying you that much so the problem is not just black hat but only being able to afford a link blast spam fest which is unlikely to work anyway.

    Well if it does why risk it. Google will change algorithm and boom....your site lost rank or even worse, it's black listed.

    Follow this guide, straight from Google themselves for best long lasting SEO results.
