    What is Black Hat SEO?

    If you ask 10 SEOs one question, you’re going to get 10 different answers right?

    Black Hat SEO is one of the most overused terms in the industry. I’d love to know your definition of what black hat SEO is. Include your company name and website address and I’d be happy to include a no-follow link back to you!

    Put some serious thought into – what do you think?

    Sometimes it works, mostly it backfires hard.
