    Black Hat SEO is used to classify techniques which aim to control the SERPs, by causing bad effects to the reliability of a search engine’s ability to bring significant results to what internet users are looking for through different search engines. One of the biggest problems with black hat SEO is that it lacks longevity. When comparing black hat SEO with white hat SEO, this seems to be the biggest disadvantage of black hat SEO techniques.

    nice post. Black hat SEO is more frequently used by those who are looking for a quick financial return on their website rather than a long-term investment on their webiste. It can possibly result in your Web site being banned from a search engine.
