Search engine optimization methods are divided in two categories: black hat SEO and white hat SEO. Both methods can help you to get high rankings on search engines.
However, one method is likely to get your website banned on search engines and recent developments indicate that websites that use that method will be in trouble soon.
What is white hat SEO?
White hat SEO means that the webmaster doesn't try to trick search engines. White hat SEO means playing by the rules. Web pages that are created with white-hat SEO methods are beneficial to web surfers, search engines and webmasters.
What is black hat SEO?
Black-hat SEO methods seem to work. So why not use them?
You have probably also seen some web pages in the search results that looked strange or hardly related to what you've actually searched. So do black-hat SEO methods seem to work? Should you use them?
You might get in trouble even if you used black-hat methods years ago
Don't use black-hat SEO methods. As technical possibilities evolve, it's very likely that these methods will be detected even if you don't use them anymore. It's better to use tools that focus on white-hat SEO methods.
Websites that continue to play by the rules will have an advantage in Google's search results. In addition, there's no need to use shady techniques if you can have a white-hat SEO tool that comes with a guarantee.
