What is ethical SEO? This term should be taken lightly Definitions varies from company to company Ethical to do SEO for sweatshops company? Is Google Ethical? Youtube $100M Lawsuits, Ebook Scanning, Warez, etc. Best practices are constantly evolving So where does this leaves us?
What is ethical SEO? To me being ethical means having some respect for the website owners who are 'allowing' you to get backlinks from them. "Treat The Other Like You'd Like to Be Treated."
Example of 'Ethical' SEO on my Blog Good way to place your backlinks (always gets approved) Bad way to place your backlinks (stays in spam folder)
More examples from Academia.edu Good way to place your backlinks Valuable + well written content
More examples from Academia.edu Bad way to place your backlinks Poor + Keyword Stuffed + unreadable content
Conclusion: Respectful SEO DO Put yourself in the shoes of the website owner Strive to add valuable well-written content Vary your sources DON'T Put keywords in blog comments unless allowed by the owner Abuse a link source (e.g. spam it to death)
