What are the differences in white hat and black hat back? I have read in this forum a lot about black hat back links and ratios to use them to my what hat back links. But I am unclear on which is black or white. Curently I use articales original content spun for (30 sites with high PR), social networks (30 plus sites), video (20 plus sites), & thinking to trying some thing I read about in this forum about status sites. Which of these would be considered black hat or white hat? What are the best White hat methods?
