Zero Value Black Hat SEO Overkill

A few SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) consultants utilise quick and dirty methods to achieve results for sites which offer no real visitor content value. Can this be beneficial, will the results last over time and what is the value of appearing like a cheat?

If you know what you are doing with SEO then you can abuse the system. Who are you trying to impress when you do this and are such people a legitimate and real target market for SEO?

There is an increasing problem with SEO because so many poor quality consultants are in this marketplace. There exist no real SEO qualifications and they cannot exist due to search engine changes over time. This is a serious problem since these, so called, consultants could purchase a white label pack of SEO consultant software solutions. They then brand pricey reports to their image and, in just thirty minutes, they look as if they are an established SEO advisor.

Your on-site or on-page website words ought to relate to your industry or services you sell. Indeed, this seems so basic but have a look at how many internet sites don't do this simple thing. You must make sure that you give due regard to keyword search volumes whilst managing this with your client understanding and your understanding of your customer purchase intent keywords. The phrases may be easy, or they might be widespread, but they should match your understanding of your industry sector. Any good SEO consultant in Milton Keynes might add to these purchase, or contact intent, key phrases and the website business owner is the one who makes the concluding decision. Would any business proprietor want it any other way when the web is a market gamble of possibilities and potential prospects?

When white label SEO is so widely used and oversold you discover that individuals in business start having a mistrust of software automated, pricey and half hour generated SEO. If the real SEO advisor is not cautious then they get sucked into responding against this trend and move towards black hat SEO snake oil. The legitimate consultant may drop their standards by presenting hard hitting and unsubtle sites simply as marketing. That's SEO websites with no real intention of visitor conversion or imparting any content value.

I am guilty of this myself. The overall impression it leaves is one of web visitor 'hate of spam' where no value can be found on the high ranking site. I'm now reformed and don't go near black hat SEO. I now go with the premise that the visitor has already given something to you, their energy. The implicit contract is to provide something of value in return for their time.

I also believe that it is right and appropriate for any real SEO advisor to 'play with the SEO envelope' to discover what is best in terms of overall performance. It just doesn't have to be around an empty value site to do this - it's much better, and possibly more sales converting, to possess a more genuine website.

If the overall impression is bad then you end up getting the same doubting, empty pocket, small business customers and you start to believe that this is the only approach to do SEO.

This is so completely wrong and any SEO consultant falling into this trap has failed to understand the true value of SEO.

Black hat SEO isn't really a good market for any SEO consultant to aim for.
