Black hat SEO experts are those people who use unethical methods to bring their site on the first page or top rank with the help of unprofessional techniques like linking numerous artificial back links to a website. With Penguin 2.0 update, no black hat techniques will work in improving the web presence. All such sites just vanished overnight from the first page. The sites, which were hit so badly with this new Google update suffered huge losses. The penalty in terms of lost business will be huge if we calculate the figures of all such companies globally.
Google’ Stand on Dirty Blackhat Tactics

Only those companies will have good presence in Google, which are building credible links through genuine approaches like contributing guest post on the high quality blogs. Companies will have to build their brand and credibility in order to gain high SERPs now.
Growing Significance of News Sites

Those sites, which are given the Black Hat title by Google, are fighting to revive their image.

Importance of Public Relations
Those who want to win the trust of Google should hire reputed PR agencies, which can rebuild their market and web image. A good public relation activity can help the companies to repair their image and brand in the eyes of people.
