SEO Techniques Which Are Considered As “Black Hat”

In this post I’m going to talk to you about techniques in SEO which are considered as “black hat”. Black hat meaning they are against search engine guidelines and could get your site completely removed from the search engines. Warning…..with that disclaimer out of the way, I’m going to be completely honest with you and tell you that most SEO agencies that would charge you thousands of dollars a month to build backlinks are simply going to engage in some of the ‘black hat’ techniques I’m going to talk about in this post. Three years ago Google took a stand against people who were purchasing links from blogs. They consider this a ‘black hat’ tactic because you are artificially get your blog to rank higher than it naturally would. When they came out and said that this is officially against their rules, their goal was to stop it, but what it did was point out how effective it really was. Overnight companies that were selling text links increased sales volume by ten fold. Now lets use common sense for a second: if Google honestly could completely remove your site from search engines because you purchased links then obviously it would be incredibly easy to eliminate your competition by buying them paid links and reporting them to Google. From this one could interpret that Google not only showed how effective paid links are but at the same time there is nothing they can do to detect and enforce their guidelines. In the last five years we know people that have purchased millions of dollars of paid links to their website and I can’t think of one of them who has ever had their site banned. So obviously your next question is: where should I buy links from? Not so fast skippy. You need to be smart about it. While it’s very hard for Google to detect you’re buying links, let me go over some basic guidelines on where and how to go about it. Never buy a link on a site that you can easily detect they are selling links. For instance if you are on a political website and at the bottom you see links for Online Poker, obviously this is not a good place to purchase a link. The most ideal place you can purchase a link is on a site that is relevant to yours. For instance if your site is about weight lifting, you would want to find an article about weight lifting and approach the site owner about purchasing a link in their blog roll or recommended sites list if they have one. The best case would be if you were able to purchase a link in the context of an article and use your keyword that is relevant to your website as the link. All this sounds great right. You are probably looking for blogs to contact right now. But WAIT. There is a huge risk in doing this. Google encourages blogs to report people who are soliciting them to buy links. This is a huge liability to you, to randomly approach blogs. But, what if I told you that there are is a marketplace filled with blogs that sell links and this site also offers a service to find in text keywords like we talked about above. It’s called Text Link Ads (ref), and they practically invented the marketplace for buying and selling links. They really take care of you as a customer and have your best interests at heart and have more experience than anyone on not only where to buy links but also on how to mitigate your risk.
