    Since Googles been hit with blackhat redirect practices by spammers...they plan to make changes ... will it affect our own sites? hmm

    Do you have a link?

    Blackhat SEO is nothing new. I've seen it recommended on certain forums. Before I knew what it was I even tried it (unsuccessfully). But I have to admit that if I'm doing research for a hub about North African frogs and I get porn sites (and this kind of thing has happened to me) then there's something wrong with the way the system is working.

    My understanding is that White Hat SEO is strongly rewarded by Google.

    I doubt there is anything seriously blackhat you could do with hubpages. Don't redirect your links after a person clicks on it just to be sure, but I wouldn't worry too much if the first thing you think of when you hear "Black Hat" is "Abraham Lincoln". smile

    Black Hat SEO is funny. It's funny because of how stupid it is. In the long run it won't succeed and Google will just keep finding better ways to weed out the websites who practice these techniques. I started a blog called the SEO Fail Blog which reveals a lot of the stupid things websites are doing, especially sites who practice "Black Hat".

    My blog is <snipped link>

    Let me know what you think.

    Many hubbers use blackhat techniques w/o realizing it - self promotion at social bookmarking, spamming your links to your poor social networking friends - slyly slipping your links into forum answers

    blackhat isnt well defined..if your not a slave to TOS and willing to pull some tricks to reach higher ranking then your leaning towards the darkside already

    the main difference IMO, is that most blackhat techniques only give you short term gains - but those gains can be quite lucrative

      I would call that grey hat techiques. Specially because a lot of places already has the no-follow activated.

    Some very serious SEO guys told me that Blackhat is a very hard work. It can be profitable, but requires tons of knowledge and quite sophisticated tools. With no guarantee.
    I think I can go Whitehat - much easier and safer, I don't like my hubs/blogs dropped off.
