SEO Tactics: A Comparison Of Black, Grey & White Hat SEO [Infographic]

blackhat-whitehat-seo-tactics-header

Many website owners disagree about what is the best way to perfect their website’s SEO. It all comes down to a strategy decision that could affect your website’s longevity and reputation. Some people believe that in order to succeed, you need to apply grey or even black hat SEO tactics. However, white hat SEO optimizers have a different opinion. White hat SEO tactics are always going to give you the most long term effects, and plenty of studies have shown that.

What is the real difference between white hat, grey hat and black hat SEO? It’s quite easy really. White hat is everything that is considered “legal” by search engines. That could be everything from keyword tags to content optimizing. When it comes to black hat and grey hat, it’s a little bit different. Black hat are SEO tactics that involve keyword stuffing, hidden texts and of course link farms and scraping. The latter is a form of content stealing which happens to pretty much every major website or blog.

Endeavoring into black hat SEO is dangerous, and it will most likely end with your website being banned from search engines altogether. White hat SEO tactics have a better impact and tell search engines that you mean business in a professional way. What one should also remember is that paid links are also included into search engine’s no-go SEO tactics. If a search engine finds out you have purchased a link, your site could potentially be banned from indexing as well.

We get a clearer look at what is considered white hat, grey hat and even black hat SEO tactics when we consult an infographic called Black Hat vs. White Hat SEO, presented by Cognitive SEO. If you have ever wondered what the differences are, and how you can prevent your site from being blacklisted from search engines, this infographic will tell you exactly what to do and what to stay away from. Staying within white hat SEO tactics is always the best. There is plenty of creativity to utilize when you stay within white hat SEO. Not only that, but you will also find it has way more impact and can sometimes even yield faster results.

This is an awesome infographic – absolutely love it! White hat is definitely the way to go as evidenced by all of the sites that are still ranking well post panda and penguin.

The problem with grey hat strategies is that you never know when the practice will turn from shades of grey to pitch black. I’m sure at one time many of the practices that are now considered black hat were thought of as grey hat.

Thanks for sharing.

White pays off big time been slowly crawling up up on Google was on page 5 after almost there months doing every thing right then after the update on Google two weeks ago right to page two with no page rank yet so slow and steady will be on page one soon and plan on staying there a long time saw many on page one disappear. gray or black hat worked for them but that the pasted sure could sent up a page today and be on page one but for how long a week or month and then black listed no thank you not going to payoff doing it wrong
