In search engine optimization (SEO) terminology, black hat SEO refers to the use of aggressive SEO strategies, techniques and tactics that focus only on search engines and not a human audience, and usually does not obey search engines guidelines.

My top 12 black hat seo tactics of 2018:

1. Keyword stuffing
2. Unrelated keywords
3. Creating PBN websites
4. Paid backlinks
5. Tiny text & same color text
6. Cloaking
7. Stealing & scrambling content
8. Link farms
9. Purchasing fake reviews
10. Spamming blogs & message boards
11. Buying fake media
12. Malware

Google is our God! Let’s keep him happy, please… no black hat SEO in 2018.

    Another great video, Chris! If you think it’s cold in Toronto, it was -25 felt like -39 here in Montreal.
    Got a suggestion for a video. Can you give an overview of serp ranking websites such as SEMrush, Moz, etc? How to use them to see positioning, etc. Something I’m trying to figure out.

      I limit my outdoor time, I can’t stand the cold.  

      Most definitely, SemRush is on my list of things to shoot this month. 

      Stay warm out there.
