White Hat SEO: The never changing strategy for ever changing Algorithms.

The biggest achievement possibly that could be done by a search engine optimizer is to find out what actually search engines does to index sites and very few may have succeeded and by the time they can actually feel the success things normally changes pretty soon and most of them will be back to square one.
The irony is that the few persons who think that they have achieved the mastery of this search engineering may have not used the same strategy but only the crawlers knows that none of them are the masters but just optimizers and hence none of the strategies used by them are perfect. In generic terms, the definition of a search engine optimizer is a person who optimizes and promotes websites but search engines have a different definition for them and that is the persons who are following the semantics of the search engines are the search optimizers and that’s it.

Likewise, Search Engine Optimization is definitely a business and following ethical search engine optimization techniques will yield respect from search engines and in turn will reflect in the results.

    Whitehat and blackhat SEO are two different views of how to do search engine optimization. Whitehats are those website designers that “play nice” and try to follow all of the search engine guidelines to optimize their site. Blackhats are where website designers use backdoors, cloaking, and other tricks to optimize sites.
