BEST BLACK HAT FORUMS

blackhatseo

As a link exchange company we often use black hat forums to keep up with the latest developments. But which forum is the best? To find out, we put five of the most popular forums to the test. We compared the features and performance of each forum and asked a simple question on which we could judge the quality of the replies. The forums chosen were; Black Hat World, Best Blackhat Forum, Black Hat Underground, Black Hat Team and Black Hat Devil.

General performance

The table below gives a general idea of how popular each forum is and how busy.

Forum Posts Users Monthly traffic
Black Hat Underground ★★
Black Hat Devil ★★★ ★★★ ★★★
Black Hat Team ★★★★ ★★★ ★★
Best Blackhat Forum ★★★★★ ★★★★★ ★★★★
Black Hat World ★★★★★ ★★★★★ ★★★★

Forum test

To test out the forums we asked a simple question to find out how good the replies were, and how long it took to get a reply.
The question we asked was: Hi, I am completely new to SEO and black hat in general. My question is: Does Google approve of buying backlinks?

Results

The table below shows how well the forums did answering our question.

Black Hat Underground
Black Hat Devil ★★★★★ ★★★★★ ★★★
Black Hat Team ★★ ★★ ★★★★
Best Blackhat Forum
Black Hat World

Black Hat World

Black Hat World was the first forum we tried and easily the most annoying. After taking the trouble to sign up we discovered that this forum will still not let you ask questions even after joining. As far as we can tell there is no way to get answers from this forum without paying.

black-hat-world

Best Blackhat Forum

Best Blackhat Forum failed to live up to it’s name. We managed to ask a question in this forum though we found it quite confusing to use. We created a new thread in what we hoped was the right section but never received any answer to our question.

black-hat-forum

Black Hat Underground

Black Hat Underground was easy and straightforward to use though we never received any answer to our question.

black-hat-underground

Black Hat Team

Black Hat Team again was simple and easy to use. We did get an answer to our question though it was not really helpful in any way. It was the first reply we got and we got it the same day we posted our question.

black-hat-team-1

black-hat-team-2

Black Hat Devil

We liked Black Hat Devil a lot. It seems to have a great community and was simple and easy to use. Although it took just over a week to get a reply, the answer was good advice.

black-hat-devil-1

black-hat-devil-2

Conclusion

We understand that it is perhaps a little premature to make a decision based on just one question, however based on the general user experience we can still get a good idea of how these forums stack up. The first two forums we would rule out straight away because the first one is not free, and the second one is just to complicated and unnecessarily difficult to understand.

That leaves us with the top three black hat forums which are: Black Hat Underground, Black Hat Team and Black Hat Devil. We will continue to see how these forums preform in time. We would recommend any of the top three based on user experience alone. We think Black Hat Devil is currently the best black hat forum online.

10 Good Black Hat SEO Tools

You should edge on the side of caution if you are to use black hat SEO tools. Although they can produce some pretty good results, Google doesn’t like what they do as they feel it’s ‘gaming the system’. This can cause your web pages to suffer a rank drop thus causing your traffic to fall. However, if they are used in moderation, some can be pretty useful for your website. Read below to investigate the top 10 black hat SEO tools.

Xrumer

Xrumer is a tool which allows the owner to blast their own website with forum links targeting the selected keywords. This is a way to increase the webmasters search engine rankings as Google sees the new links coming to the website. This is possibly one of the most black hat tools out there.

Scrapebox

Scrapebox is a black hat SEO tool which allows you to ‘scrape’ domains across the web and use it for competitor analysis or link building acquisition. One of the things you can do with this tool is actually post thousands of blog comments on your own blog to make yours look popular or even post it on other websites to get more links.

Traffic Booster Pro V3

Auto blogging is a black hat area that a few have used successfully while others have failed. The Traffic Booster Pro V3 is a tool which allows you to get content from many different sources (including different languages) and use it as an auto blogger. This means you can generate content quickly and easily.

The Best Spinner

The Best Spinner allows you to spin your content so it won’t be deemed as duplicate and will thus appear in the SERPS. This is useful when you’re submitting to different article directories and are looking for different links back. There is no guarantee how long this tool will be functional due to the fact search engines are placing less and less importance on directories. On the other hand it may still be useful for other blogs that you wish to publish to.

SE Nuke

SE Nuke is a tool that has different black hat aspects inside. The first one includes a built in spinning engine which bypasses Google’s duplicate content filter, the second is one a tool which allows you to submit your video to the top 14 video websites. The third is instant social bookmarking and the final tool is RSS feed submission to the top 16 RSS aggregators.

Sick Submitter

Sick Submitter allows webmasters to submit their websites automatically via forums, bookmarks, directories and RSS feeds. Due to this the tool uses many proxies and allows users to actually swap the ones they are using.

Tweet Attacks

Tweet Attacks is a black hat tool that allows users to tweet people who have spoken about your specific product. For example if they mentioned they want the new iPhone you could send a tweet including a link to your sales page. This can be done for thousands of people and you don’t even need followers.

Unique Article Wizard

Unique Article Wizard is a piece of software that is used a lot within the internet marketing community. This is because it submits all of your articles to thousands of directories providing your website with thousands of backlinks. Having this amount of backlinks is good if your website is established, but if it’s new then it’s best to take it slowly and make it submit at a lower rate. This is one of the most successful black hat tools there is.

Bookmarking Demon

Bookmarking Demon allows the webmaster to create backlinks by utilizing the power of social bookmarking. Many webmasters have stated it can be pretty effective at gaining a few ranks but isn’t as effective when it comes to the top spots (of course this will depend on the competitiveness of the keyword).

Market Samurai

Market Samurai could be considered black hat due to the fact it allows you to do so much. There aren’t too many shady tricks with this tool but it has excellent keyword research tools and also a fantastic SERP checker that enables you to keep track of your websites on a daily basis.
