Zero Value Black Hat SEO Overkill

A few SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) consultants utilise quick and dirty techniques to achieve results for sites which hold no real visitor content value. Can this be beneficial, will the results last with time and what is the value of looking 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 since several low quality professionals are in this sector. There exist no real SEO qualifications and they cannot exist due to search engine changes with time. This is a serious problem because these, so called, consultants can get a white label pack of SEO consultant software solutions. They then brand costly reports to their image and, in just thirty minutes, they look as if they are a well established SEO advisor.

Your on-site or on-page website words should relate to your industry or services you offer. Indeed, this appears so simple but take a look at how many sites don't do this straightforward thing. You must ensure that you give due regard to key phrase search volumes whilst managing this with your client understanding and your knowledge of your customer purchase intent keywords. The key phrases may be simple, or they might be complex, but they ought to match your knowledge of your industry sector. Any good SEO consultant in Milton Keynes may expand upon these purchase, or contact intent, key phrases and also the website business proprietor is the individual who makes the final decision. Would any business owner want it any other way when the online world is a market gamble of odds and prospective customers?

When white label SEO is so commonly used and oversold you discover that people in business begin to have a hunch of software automated, pricey and half hour generated SEO. If the real SEO consultant is not cautious then they get sucked into responding against this trend and move towards black hat SEO snake oil. The legitimate advisor can drop their standards by presenting hard hitting and unsubtle websites merely as promotion. That's SEO websites with no real intention of visitor conversion or imparting any content value.

I am guilty of this myself. The overall impact it leaves is one of web visitor 'hate of spam' where no value can be located 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 offer 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.
