Google, along with every other search engine, is very complex. With algorithms that leave us scratching our heads or bowing to the “Google gods”, no one other than the creators of it have the algorithm completely down to a “T”.
People used to salivate when web specialists would approach them speaking about SEO. Like moths to a flame, business owners and those craving an online presence would come flocking. Now, that’s not necessarily the case.
Those small businesses that used to love the idea of search engine optimisation are now slowly pulling away. Business owners and shops are leaning more toward growing their social media presence than optimising their websites – and honestly, I’m not surprised in the slightest.
WHAT IS WHITE HAT SEO?
When Google had just begun, search engine optimisation (SEO) was a much simpler task than it is today. Each website’s ranking position was based solely on the number of backlinks referring to it. This paved the way for Black Hat SEO tactics, also known as unethical SEO tactics, to make their way into commonly used search engine optimisation strategies. Not exactly ideal. As ranking algorithms have become more complex, the usage of black hat search engine optimisation tactics have caused penalisations and even black-listing of websites that use them in the attempt to render these techniques obsolete.
