In this paper, we present and analyze a simple and robust spectral algorithm for the stochastic block model with $k$ blocks, for any $k$ fixed. Our algorithm works with graphs having constant edge density, under an optimal condition on the gap between the density inside a block and the density between the blocks. As a co-product, we settle an open question posed by Abbe et. al. concerning censor block models.
