The Difference Between White Hat and Black Hat SEO- Guest blog by Rand Marketing
Monday, November 20, 2017Lauren Macdonald
Back in the day--before the advancements of color TV--one of the best ways to determine the ‘bad guys’ from the ‘good guys’ at the start of a show would be to look at the hat they were wearing. If the hat was black, you could assume that they would be the ‘bad guy’ of the show, and if the hat was white, they were most likely the heroic, good character.

Wishing you could integrate ShipStation with CommerceHub? We can help!
