How to Identify Black Hat SEO

Article by Greg Jordan

For example, posting linked comments on related blogs isn’t considered very problematic, but using software to submit huge quantities of identical or irrelevant comments is definitely viewed as a Black Hat technique.White Hat SEO methods, if done properly, can actually product the best long-term outcome and create a greater impact on the web in general. Several once-common Black Hat techniques have fallen into disuse after search engines successfully developed ways to detect them.Move to the top of the search results pages, increase your visibility, drive traffic to your site–with these promises, it is easy to understand why many companies are tempted to avail of the services of a search engine marketing company that use optimization techniques search engines like Google and Yahoo! consider illegal.Known as Black Hat SEO, these methods include adding hidden texts, creating doorway pages (or, as Google defined them “pages created just for search engines”), key word stuffing (i.e., bombarding your content with too much keywords and phrases), using popular but irrelevant keywords and participating in link farms.Despite the potential benefits they can provide you, however, Black Hat SEO should be avoided like a plague.First of all, the search engines could drop your rankings so low that even the most diligent of searchers would have a hard time finding your site. And a lowered ranking, as any business whose web site has been penalized can tell you, is never a good thing. Kinderstart, a parenting web site for example, experienced a 70% decline in traffic and 80% revenue decrease after Google penalized the site in March 2005 for allegedly using Black Hat SEO techniques.And if you think getting your ranks lowered is bad enough, then read this: in some cases, the search engines even ban sites and remove them from their index list–this means that, unless you’re able to successfully appeal your case, your site will never appear on search engine results page ever again. One example is the case of RICOH Germany. The German web site of the Japanese office-products manufacturer was “de-listed” by Google after the search engine discovered the site using spam techniques to bolster its rankings (the site has been re-listed after the company apologized and its webmaster made the modifications Google demanded).If you’re really unlucky, aside from getting your site removed from the list, you might also suffer from the same embarrassing fate of BMW.de. While the banning of web sites are never really announced (even to the company that owns it), Google’s engineer Mike Cutts announced on his blog the removal of BMW.de’s site from the search engine’s index and even detailed the violations the web site committed. As their very name signifies, their dark ways and objectives lie in promoting web pages and their ranks and they do only care for quick improvement, however transitory their existence may be.Off-Page Analyses: Off-page SEO jobs such as link building, directory submission, article submission, blog commenting and link exchanges, video submission and the likes do also take a considerable period of time for improving page ranks of a website when all ethics are duly followed by a SEO Company. But the scene tells another story. Most of the SEO companies do not stick to the norms. They prefer dark ways. Indiscriminate exchanges of links and the likes to websites of alien kind and software-driven cunning submission of links can dredge the litany of lapses within a short time span.

Answer by Jake
Blogspot blogs have to use the simple platform provided by Google. Really besides optimizing each post for 1 or more search keywords, the main SEO task is getting links from other sites.

An authority on conservative “Whitehat” SEO put together a collection of links that might be helpful.

Climb the Alexa Ranking Ladder

Alexa is a kind of search engine that measures the popularity of websites that are visited by surfers who have an Alexa toolbar installed in their browser. Since the toolbar has been downloaded over ten million times, it is safe to suppose that a lot of surfers use it – a lot, but not the majority.

How does Alexa calculate a website’s traffic rank?

Er, difficult to say exactly. What the boffins at Alexa say they do is take all the previous three months of surfing data from the toolbar users and kind of mash it together in a saucepan. Then they throw in a few “secret ingredients” and other undisclosed “diverse traffic data sauces” and leave it to simmer until it has reduced down to a single number – your website’s Alexa traffic rank!

Some people have expressed a degree of scepticism about Alexa’s cookery.

Despite the scepticism, Alexa is still important in providing some sort of guide to overall website ranking, especially for the higher ranked sites and is used as a rough guide by a lot of website owners, who see an improvement in their Alexa rank as evidence that they are making progress.

It is important to stress that Alexa rank and traffic volume are not inextricably linked. You could have a great site that attracts a lot of targeted traffic, but still have an Alexa rank of over a million. (The lower the number, the higher the rank.)

Still, a site that ranks highly on Alexa will gain a lot of credibility and you will find plenty of highly ranked websites (i.e. anything below 100,000) that display their Alexa ranking on their homepages.

So, here are a few tips to help you get your site up the Alexa ranking ladder:

For best results use Firefox and install the Alexa toolbar using Firefox’s Search Status extension and set your website homepage as the default page.

Next, place the Alexa widget on your website. The widget will display your Alexa rank, and send feedback about your site to Alexa.

Customize the Alexa tool bar and add a link to the toolbar download page. Every time it is downloaded you will get some credit from Alexa.

A lot of Website owners tend to have the Alexa toolbar on their browsers. They also tend to visit web directories, so if you post your site on a number of popular directories you stand a good chance of having it viewed on browsers that have the Alexa toolbar installed.

Website owners also tend to hang out on Internet marketing and SEO forums. Join those forums, post a link to your website in your forum signature and you might pick up some extra Alexa juice.

Write articles about Alexa and other SEO tips and post them on your website or blog. Your aim is to attract visitors who may be interested to learn about Alexa and download the toolbar from your site.

Add a page of marketing resources to your website and place a link to the Alexa toolbar on it.

Get some friends to bookmark your Alexa articles on Stumbleupon and similar social marketing sites, use Twitter to get the word out about Alexa and so on.

These are just some of the ways that you can improve your Alexa ranking. Remember, the higher your website ranks on Alexa the more seriously it is likely to be taken by people who visit your site and by people who might want to advertise on it.
