I thought yesterday that I would like to mention a few black hat SEO examples, which can be written in the length of a normal post. But after writing an example, look at the length of the book. Although I personally never, can’t, don’t dare, use black hat or grey hat SEO skills, and also very opposed to black hat grey hat SEO. But talking about black hat SEO is quite strong. It seems that everyone has a subconscious mind that is evil, but it is suppressed by social roles. Can’t do it, talk about it in your mouth.
Of course, introducing black hat SEO is by no means encouraging anyone to do it. As always, I am against the black hat SEO technology, especially those that are not artistic. The reason why we introduce them is to let everyone know more about a variety of practices and to prevent traps.
How to make the link to someone else’s website through less reasonable means?
Many SEOs have seen people hacking into other websites and putting hidden links on their websites to improve PR and ranking. But this is not a black hat, but a hacker. There are not only ethical issues, but also legal issues.
There are other ways to make the link on someone else’s website. I have seen someone set up a virtual hosting service company, the price is very attractive, as long as the cost can be recovered, and even lose money. Once you have a customer, put your own link on the customer’s website, usually a hidden link. Because the host customer website is on its own server, what to put if you want to put it.
In order to avoid legal issues, such a host company may also add a sentence in the place where the terms of service are not noticeable: the company reserves the right to modify the customer’s webpage. Who is looking for a virtual host, who will read the terms of service carefully? I don’t know if there will be one in 10,000 people? Although this is not illegal, it is also quite wicked.
Others have improved the method, instead of secretly placing the link on the host customer’s website, but providing a free web host, provided that the customer must provide a link to the website specified by the hosting company. Such target websites are usually non-profit organization websites with high PR values.
There are some non-profit organizations in the US and Europe. Due to their own characteristics, websites can attract many links. But people who run websites don’t understand SEO or online marketing, and they don’t have that interest. Some people come to sponsor, it is a good thing for them, not the amount of sponsorship, but in many places, donations to sponsor non-profit organizations is a social atmosphere.
Some non-profit organizations’ websites can reach PRs like 7,8. People who have bought links know that PR7, 8 or even 9, what is the cost of a month? Sponsoring such a host is much cheaper.
By the way, no non-profit organizations with high PR values were found in Singapore. If you have a non-profit organization website with a PR value of 8, please contact me.
Some software providers also do black hats. I have seen a shopping cart software that is still used by many websites to add hidden links to their websites in the programs downloaded by customers. This is completely different from the nature of the acknowledgment link in the open source software and templates such as WordPress. If the open source software author explicitly asks the user to keep the (visible) link, this is a good link bait. If the toll cart sneaked a hidden link and the client didn’t know it, it was quite dark.
