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)

Put keywords in blog comments unless allowed by the owner

Abuse a link source (e.g. spam it to death)
