What is Ethical SEO? (Aka: “White Hat SEO”)
Ethical search engine optimization, in short: is to follow guidelines and accepted standards to search engine optimize a website. This means we don’t use any tricks or cheats that are sometimes employed by “Black hat” practitioners.
Using “White Hat SEO” or Ethical SEO leads to much longer-lasting, stronger positioning that can withstand frequent changes made to algorithms.
Optimization strategies can sometimes result in faster results, and are used by Black Hat Optimization but most often are not long-lasting. Some Black Hat strategies can result in being penalized, or even permanently banned by some major search engines and directories.
White Hat Optimization is the only way to go, don’t take the risk of having your site banned.
This is the most common FAQ we are asked
A website doesn’t show up in search engine results due to many reasons or display well.
Any of the following can affect your web sites search engine positioning, and web traffic.
- You may not be using a search engine optimized web design.
- Your site may not be readable by the engines.
