    A quick explanation:

    It is the unethical, under the table method of search engine marketing. In simpler terms, it is the wrong way of getting your website ranked higher on the search engine result pages. Examples of these methods are hidden text, link farms, keyword stuffing, etc.

    'illegal'????

    OK, someone show me the statute book where the law against keyword stuffing is defined, and punishments laid out.

    No?

    That's right, you can't.

    Why?

    Because blackhat stuf is not illegal

    It's not even unethical

    it's simply against the wishes of the search engines.

    After all, who are THEY to tell you what you can and can't put on your own website???

    As to whether it works or not, here's a way to figure it out:-

    If it is commonly regarded as 'stupid' (cloaking, doorway pages, markov etc) then iot doesn't work anymore - engines can trap it automatically.

    if engines bleat on about it, that means they can't trap it automatically, which means it still works.

    Black Hat is useless. If your link development strategy is good, you don't need Black Hat SEO, except if you want to be banned from SE.

    But still this is simply blackhat Search Engine Optimization.

    There is a whole world of blackhat.

    Some make money from it, but it is rather difficult.

    Not suggested for those who wish to have a long term income.

    Would you rather sell items on ebay dropshipping and make $5,000 a month, or cookie stuff ebay through EPN and make $17,000 for one month and $54,000 the next, but get your ebay and EPN accounts banned and never see a penny of it?

    Blackhat is all about risk-taking, and a lot of the time, it's not worth the risk to take.

    Black hat, means doing unethical things to get a higher SERP position (normally used in reference to SERP positioning).

    Anything that is unethical to do is blackhat. Since this DP is a SEO Forum, guess you are talking about black hat SEO.

    Unethical techniques used by webmasters to rank high in SERPs.

    Something like cheating. You make Google think you are something that in fact you are not.

    Black hat is what the search engines think is cheating and unfair

    It is basically any thing you do to fool their bots and score high in the search

    Basically, unless you know FOR SURE what you are doing and what you are getting yourself into, don't even bother with blackhat. It is short term income because you will be caught blackhatting, almost all the time.

    I don't understand how black hat SEO could ever be considered illegal - what law is one breaking if they trick their way to the top rankings of a search engine? I'd consider it unethical only if the person offered no value on their website to visitors.

    Some methods are illegal. For techniques, though, you may want to look somewhere else.
