    I had the same question about 9 months ago. Black hat uses techniques that are typically not allowed or you can get in trouble (banned) from certain programs for. White has uses legit techniques that don't skirt the line.

    Anybody care to expand on that? I don't claim to be a pro.

    White hat is when you use that color in your design.

    There is no such thing as white hat SEO, its just a fancy term that people use to sell backlinks.

    simple explanation

    both are used ti improve your PR..

    whitehat- some allowable techniques
    blackhat- some illegal tech.

    using blackhat will give instant results but get banned soon or hit by any update..
    using whitehat slow in showing results but long term run..

    Black hat seo is about breaking any terms of service necessary to get ahead in the rankings where as white hat seo
    tends to focus on only quality content and natural organic traffic.

    "illegal" techniques?
    No SEO is illegal (some forms of link jacking and keylogging are illegal) but they have nothing to do with "search engine optimization" - they are traffic stealing and fraud techniques.

    No SEO is illegal - and using such emotive and incorrect terms doesn't help anyone.

    Here's a pretty harsh view on this.

    The whole SEO is black hat. No matter what are you doing. If you post links on high quality, niche related and authority sites, the links are not natural, so this is black hat SEO too.

    White hat seo = posting content and praying to Google to rank you.

    Here you go simply put..

    White Hat is ethical SEO. Its SEO techniques that search engines like.
    Using these methods shouldn't cause your site to be penalized. Success
    with White Hat is slower than Black Hat and is more long term.

    Black Hat is the use of techniques that are looked at as unacceptable to
    boost page
    rankings in the search engines. These techniques trick search
    engines to get a
    more authoritative ranking. Black Hat usually get results
    much faster than doing White Hat.


    and you also have Grey Hat..

    Grey Hat is just like it sounds. SEO techniques fall in the grey area.
    In between White and Black. These techniques are questionable. They
    take more risks than White Hat but aren't technically in the same
    category as Black Hat, at least not yet.

    If you are building backlinks for your site, you are doing Black Hat SEO.
