Competitors using black-hat SEO

Hi friends,
Most of my competitors are using black-hat SEO tactics, what should i do? I rank 3 - 7 for my core keywords. I wanna go up but Google isn't penalizing those sites who are using black-hat SEO tactics(such as keyword stuffing) and are above of me.

Please help.
Thanks in advance

Google doesn't always penalize violators instantly, but usually catches the offenders sooner or later. Stay with whitehat techniques and follow the rules to insure the long term success of your business.

I would help speed up the process and report them to Google if they are violating Googles Guidelines.

Stop worrying, justice will prevail. ;)

awaiskazmi11,
Playing dirty is any field is normal, they recur in real world and in cyber world, get used to it.
Don't be so paranoid and worried you're website is getting behind, you said they doing black hat seo, then report them using the link given by Super Mod snakeair. Also for me website ranked because of doing SEO in unethical manner is not a permanent result, you will see their ranking depreciation and loosing in search engine results. Just continue your SEO work in a right way.
As what the person above me said "give them a taste of their own medicine". Soon you will reap what you saw, and justice will prevail.

However, black-hat SEO is not a long-term to seo, and it will be punished sooner or later.

Google easily dicovers black hatters on the web and penalize them... You can either file a spam report against them or wait for banning of their website.

Black hat SEO wont last too long. Sooner than later they would end up in trouble with google. You are on PR7 for your core keywords using allowed SEO methods. Just keep doing what you are and it will get better.

"I rank 3 - 7 for my core keywords"- you are doing great. I think you can wait, those sites will be slapped.

If you are ranking for 7 keywords you are doing great, and black hat methods although they are ahead of you now will eventually be caught and in reality if you know for a fact, and you have to know for a fact, use the link that snakeair shared and report them, Google says you are suppose to do this for the reason they can not only penalize the site, but also help deter blackhatters in the future.

Thank you all

Thank you all for your nice comments.

@snakeair Thank you for the link , I remember i had filed a spam report of one website 3 months ago but i didn't noticed any change in their ranking. Anyways i have filed a report again , let see what happens.

@samuraixx Have you read my complete post ? I have written "keyword stuffing" in the brackets. Keyword stuffing is the basic technique they are using while a number of other techniques which are not allowed(are called as black-hat), they are using.

It's really not worth using black hat methods. You might be 7th now but think about being on the last page?

You can beat sites that use the black hat methods with White hat techniques.

Doesn't really work. I've reported all my main competitors years ago for using paid backlinks, and provided plenty of proof. They are still ahead of me, even if I get in 2nd place in the SERPS, I can't overtake them. I can't compete with those guys who buy tons of backlinks on homepages of blogs.

Never use black hat SEO. Just work hard and continuously according to google rules you may get high page rank.
