I wouldn't necessarily call creating backlinks in bulk "black hat" seo, it can be more spam than black hat SEO.

Typically, creating a lot of backlinks in bulk would be considered spam because it's difficult or nearly impossible to create a lot of backlinks that are all high quality backlinks.

If you have lots of high quality websites, then a sitewide link on all of those high quality sites can generate a lot of backlinks--but that's not the norm. An example would be when Yahoo links to one of their partner sites or they link an entire section of their site (sports.yahoo.com) to a partner.

When it comes to black hat, those techniques are much more sophisticated than merely creating bulk backlinks or spamming links all over the place.

So, to answer your question: creating bulk backlinks is typically search engine spam, and not "black hat" SEO.

SEO since 1996, I've been doing internet marketing. I have the experience as an SEO expert, as well.

Too many backlinks can be a problem. Google is no longer concerned about how many backlinks you have. Itís difficult to say this to some SEOs because they cannot fathom that Google would make such a drastic change. However, Google wants to see quality not quantity and if there are too many links built in an unnatural way Google will catch you and penalize your site.

Default Too many backlinks from same source website is

Too many backlinks from same source website and repeating same anchor tag might be problem and can be black-hat seo approach .
But if source website (giving backlink) is reputed and powerful ,then It should not be that high risk.

Creating bulk backlinks is not recommended at all as you can easily trip the spam filter with this strategy. It is recommended to stick with a natural backlink profile with your website, try to earn them rather than building them.

The more you generate back links the best your website visible in search results.

Creating backlink in bulk is not black hat seo, it may be spam. black hat seo is done when you do seo in wrong method.

I guess that the short answer will be that Google will punish you BUT, if you can disguise it as a "viral" campaign, you might get away with it.

For me this was a bit of hit and miss to be honest and I wouldn't do it for a money site. But for a small project you can try it.

What do others do in your industry do? I hate blogging but started because others did it.

If others are ranked higher than you...I would look into how and what they are doing.

Don't just do bulk random backlinks.
