    'blackhat' in an SEO sense is someone who uses methods and software to try to cheat a search engine. One example from the past was to provide a page for a search engine spider that was different to the page seen by the visitor. I don't know if this works anymore and don't want to know!

    There is a search engine guru calling himself Mr Black but I think that's partly to do with confidentiality and partly to do with branding

    SEO can be done in two ways. White hat method or a black hat method. White had is an ethical way of boosting your ranks while black hat is considered taboo because you cheat on search engines to achieve the ranking you want.

    Shanes got it right on the nose.

    But seriously, Black Hat is the magical way some marketers generate their income in a less than ethical way.

    So to speak.

    Hi Gunner,

    Welcome to the forums. As others have pointed out blackhat methods are ways to "cheat" the system in some way, shape, or form. Most blackhat methods are frowned upon by the IM community (a good example would be cookie stuffing, or soliciting people to do CPA offers in the hopes of getting something, ie a job, and then dumping them after they filled out your offer).

    If you use the search button at the top of the screen you can find tons of threads about affiliate companys. One that I can think of off the top of my head is consumption junction.

    Hope this helps.

    Black hat also includes ...

    Getting your site permanently banned from the search engines

    Getting your accounts closed down

    Forfeiture of any funds in existing accounts that get closed down

    A difficult time getting work anywhere outside of a few minuscule niches run by less than ethical marketers and rarely profitable

    A bad risk altogether

    Just my opinion though
