But here comes the term Black Hat or in short SEO methods that are used for manipulating the search engines’ index. These techniques are cheaper and work faster than the ones known as White Hat. As you may suppose Black Hat tactics are forbidden and often penalized because they do not follow the rules of the search engines. Cookie stuffing, page hijacking, keyword stuffing, link farms are the names of only a few of many others Black Hat techniques that are used nowadays.
