White Hat SEO VS Black Hat SEO

If you are looking to improve your website’s organic search rankings, make sure you go for a well-established company using White Hat SEO techniques. White Hat SEO techniques are those that are recommended by Google and industry experts. Black hat techniques use overly aggressive strategies to try and get quick improvements in your organic search traffic, but usually have long term negative impacts on your website’s rankings.

Here’s a handy guide for you on each.
