      Key questions missed in these conversations. many well ranking companies get links from financial partnerships, sister companies and businesses they give work to. They sleep fine at night and do great in the search results every algo update but Google if asked will tell you its not kosher.

    Th question you need to ask is do you want to sleep at night.....

    If the answer is yes then white hat is the way forward...

    if the answer is no then blackhat will keep you awake whenever google does an update :-)

      If you care about traffic through search engines (which you should), then it might be useful to ask yourself whether you would feel comfortable telling Google about what you are doing to promote your website in the search results.

    Black hat won`t work on long term, and your site will be penalized, it will do more harm, the key is to use a grey hat technique, so white hat and some blackhat, but just a bit

    Do not use black-hat tactics in any area of life. They are not sustainable over the long term. It is as simple as that.

      They have it in their head that a link blast is only $5, what damage could $5 do to their site?

      Later they're posting questions on forums asking how to disavow links. Most SEO/IM newbies are their own worst enemy when it comes to a SERP spanking.

      It's natures way of thinning the herd.

        Truly honest and great answer... Do you offer SEO services.. If yes then tell me your thread link and your skype Via PM its always good to learn new things and share ideas with like minded people. Well, I am not an expert of SEO but also not newbie I was just curious to know that how people can be so much idiot to get these type of services.. which are blackhat.. and you answered it clearly.

        a BIG thank you.

      These crappy links don't have any value or authority at all, which is why they blast so many of them. They are a recipe for disaster and not recommended for a site that you care about long term. Some people don't care about destroying their site's long term prospects and use these bad tactics so they can make a quick buck, some call it "churn and burn sites". Others sadly just don't know any better and see improvements in their rankings in the short term but get penalized soon after.

      A safe way to think about it is, if a SEO tactic seems really unnatural don't do it. A handful of quality backlinks on pages with PR are worth way more than 1,000's of crappy automated links. Quality over Quantity.

    Realistically most SEO companies are offering something in the middle as the main reason is that most SEO software is technically "spamming software". I don't have anything against black hat SEO, it is just question of experience.

    Depends what your goals are.

    There is money in both black hat and white hat.

    Learn both and then pick the one that better suits your goals/needs.
