Can anyone tell me what exactly is black hat seo and white hat seo?It would be great if there is a detailed explanation on what is it.
 
there is virtually any difference :) just folks who pretend wile doing WH they aren't using any automated tools to push their sites :D
 
Black hat SEO - unethical link building, too many links too soon with spam like methods. Content duplicacy.

White hat SEO - ethical link building. It is done using unique content.

If you are building any kind of artificial links to your site with the purpose of increasing your search engine ranking than you are not white hat.

It does not matter if you are building them manually, it does not matter if you are using unique content, it does not matter if you do it all yourself or outsource it. If you are building links for the purpose of gaming the system then you are not white hat.

Anybody that builds artificial links and tells themselves that they are white hat are lying to themselves.
 
Basically White hat is reffering to Make a good site ... and then wait for others to link to your site ...

the rest is BlackHat :D
 
Everyone is thinking white hat, when starting a new site, and soon or later he switch to black hat, when see all those crap sites ranked better.
 
This topic has been beat to death sooo many times

Volund pretty much nailed it though.

The website company I work for is so white hat, its clear!

So many times I want to bust out the scrapebox and other blackhat tools and start blasting but I'm not allowed haha

White hat drives me insane sometimes. I am a strong believer in using your best resources for the job! Think about it, Why use a hammer when you can buy a nail gun and get the job done quicker?

Probably why I went to the dark side for my own websites I manage :p
 
There's three types and I think most IMers fall into the grey hat category.

White hat - genuine guest blogging, social bookmarking, social media etc
Grey hat - submitting content to blog networks, mass social bookmarking etc
Black hat - comment spamming, article spin spamming etc
 
i believe i saw this here somewhere: once you put the exact keyword as your anchor text, you're on the dark side :D
as stated above, whitehat is basically "create unique content and wait". seriously?
