There are a lot of “SEO consultants” out there, but you have to be careful, because there are a lot of “fraudsters” pretending to be “SEO experts”.  In the industry there are specific tactics that go against search engine terms of use policies, which is why these techniques are called “Black Hat” seo techniques and those that use them are “Black Hat” seo’s.  In some cases, these black hat seo’s can get very good results, that is why they use the techniques, but Google is getting more and more sophisticated in the why their algorithms sorts the vast amounts of data they index.  So, be careful, using black hat seo’s can get you good results one day, but you site could be banned forever the next… On the other hand there are techniques known to help website rank higher in search results, that do follow the terms of use policies of major search engines, and these are called “White Hat” techniques.  SEO consultants that use these techniques are known as “White Hat” seo’s.  In some cases, using white hat techniques may take a little more time to get optimal results, but you don’t have to worry about Google penalizing or banning your site. An expert seo company can also help your website maintain high rankings even when Google changes their algorithms.  You may have heard about all the different names that are given to Google’s search engine algorithm changes, such as Panda or Penguin.  But, understanding how these updates impact website rankings is critical to maintaining high search engine rankings, and a good seo firm can provide this expertise.
