In recent years, the terms white hat and black hat have been applied to the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) industry. Black hat SEO tactics such as spamdexing, attempt to redirect search results to particular target pages in a fashion that is against the search engines' terms of service, whereas white hat methods are generally approved by the search engines. White hats tend to produce results that last a long time, whereas black hats anticipate that their sites may eventually be banned either temporarily or permanently once the search engines discover what they are doing.

Some of the blackhat SEO tactics include: keyword stuffing, hidden text and links, doorway and cloaked pages, link farming, using automated website generators, auto writing tools (keyword spun), cookie stuffing, Google bowling, and blog comment spam.

Owh, what's the purpose of doing blackhat methods?
Are they really making profits by doing these methods?
Aren't profits that last long's better than temporary ones?
So, why do blackhat?

Blackhat methods quick increase your traffic - so if you are selling a produce - generate you an income from these - the term is also applied to SEO where you jump up Google really quickly.

But in the short term it seems like a good idea, in the long run it is a terrible idea - it is very likely to get you banned and sandboxed in Google - so therefore in the long run your traffic will fall.

In  search engine optimization (SEO) terminology, Black Hat SEO refers to the use of aggressive SEO strategies, techniques and tactics that focus only on search engines and not a human audience, and usually does not obey search engine rules. Some examples of Black Hat SEO techniques include keyword stuffing, invisible text and doorway pages

Thanks and Regards

Blackhat is anything that contrast to the normal technique of SEO. This acts of blackhat can damage your site though, if you know how to use it, simply helps your site but don't abuse to use it.
