    Welcome to bhw,

    On the left there is a forum for blackhat and whitehat,read through them,alot.In basic terms BH uses techniques google doesn't like because it gets results done right,the use of automated tools etc.Whitehat also uses techniques that google doesn't like(all links should be real,so whitehat doesn't really exist anyway) very slow process that can get results but like BH can get hit anytime in serps.....

    No need to post as every newbie question will have been answered a 100x times here already it is a case of searching for what you want to know.I suggest spending a few days reading all the posts so you get the difference between the 2.

    Whitehat = SEO techniques within the the confines of the Google Webmaster guidelines
    Blackhat = Everything Else

    White Hat costs more money and is used by idiots believing big businesses don't touch Black Hat. Black Hat is every dirty psychological trick necessary in order to make a sale.

    This is the way I like to think of it.

    Whitehat: coming here and posting a thread like this
    Blackhat: Using the search bar to find your answer

    One makes a lot more sense then the other :)

    Whitehat: Legit hard way to achieve anything.
    Blackhat: Semi-legit way but not Illegal and much easier than whitehat.

    Greyhat is the mixture of the above.

    Well in my opinion there is no such thing.

    As soon as you build a single link of any nature you violate google webmaster guidelines.

    So its all black hat - and if your going to break the rules, do it properly.

    are you kidding? facepalm

    I have a strange feeling you will be back in 1 month with a thread something like.. "OMG google slapped my site.. wtf please help". Easy with the black hat.. Learn about the risks as well as the benefits, and especially learn how to avoid those risks.

    If u have an affiliate shitty site then Black-hat is your way but if u have a legit business, where your living is dependent then its bad to bad blackhat.
    Whitehat SEO - To make your site better than others. To not buy any link. To make links those send you traffic.
    Blackhat - Services u can see in BST.
    between ur question really need too much explanation!

    Every optimization technique violates Google's Webmaster guidelines, as those guidelines are (currently) about natural looking content, link development and naturally earned authority. SEO is a means of artificially improving a site's ranking through optimizing the keyword placement, back link profile et al in ways that would never happen naturally.

    "White hat," IAW, has always been black hat from the point of view of it not being natural. The main difference nowadays is black hat is more open about gaming the SERP, and about using bots or other automation tools to improve rankings.

    This is incorrect. Optimizing your web page to help the Googlebot determine that your site is relevant and should be ranked in their search engine through the use of proper headers, page title, nagivation, description etc... does not violate Google's guidelines. Neither does having a facebook or twitter page that links back to your site, or contributing to other blogs. Please see...

    http://anonym.to/http://static.goog.../search-engine-optimization-starter-guide.pdf

    Loading up GSA, Ultimate Demon, or SENuke and blasting out content to get as many links as possible is DEFINITELY a no-no in the Google playbook.
