Hello Krafa.  One thing to remember is that what is best for one site doesnt necessarily work for another site.  What niche is your website in?  Never heard of brown hat but I know what white hat, black hat and grey hat are.  White hat are methods that are completely legal.  Black hat are methods that are not legal.  Grey hat are methods that can not be defined as completely white or black hat but somewhere in between.  Yes these are simplistic definitions but they will help you understand things.  SEO Dynamite Added on: 12/06/2012 in the membership area will give you some great training on SEO.    The problem with the internet is that there is too much information out there.  Try to limit how much information you use at one time.  This membership has some great training on Internet Marketing as a whole and SEO in general so use the free and paid resources here to build your IM foundation then venture to other sources of information.

I hope this helps

Hi there :)

I am not sure that Brown Hat exists as a real SEO technique. Maybe you were referring to the Gray Hat technique?

The easiest way to explain White/Gray/Black SEO Techniques is to say that White Hat is a technique where you make pages for human users, Black Hat is where you create pages for search engines, and Gray one is somewhere in the middle. So, if you're using a White Hat technique, you will create content relevant to your domain name and keywords used on the page, your backlinks will also be real, the content will be useful for the visitors  and your site will be generally user friendly. If you are using the Black Hat technique, you will have plenty of hidden keywords, white texts on white background, misleading menus and content, and your backlinks will be all over the internet no matter of the content on your page. White Hat technique requires quite a lot of work while Black ones don't. Still, Black Hat techniques are illegal (not in front of the law but in front of the search engines) and your page will most likely be blacklisted and banned from search engines listings. This is why Gray Hat exist - it is actually a fine balancing between hard work and illegal techniques so you can eventually end up high on search engines listings and not banned from them.
This would be a short practical explanation of White/Gray/Black Hat (there are way more parameters and methods included in each, but that is the topic for the book and not one post).

Here comes the fun part  :laugh:

However, those SEO techniques were 'invented' a long time ago and many things have changed. You can just forget everything you know about the White/Gray/Black Hat and start learning SEO from the scratch. Search engines are smarter than ever and Black Hat is practically dead - you'll get blacklisted and banned from search engines as soon as your page is indexed. Also, SEO trends are changing fast and at this moment everything is about the user friendly websites with high quality (preferably long) content and quality (and if possible social media) backlinks.
