With the advent of search engines, there have been users who have used ways and means to achieve high search engine rankings. In the beginning, these search engine techniques were fairly simple, such as stuffing hidden tags with keywords or using invisible text on pages. As the search engines caught on to these tactics, the techniques used to achieve high search engine ranking evolved into more sophisticated methodologies.
