    Between black and white hat seo techniques comes link building which may sometimes be defined as black hat and sometimes white hat depending on the way it is applied and in my book I consider any link building done by the site owner is black hat. So in your opinion guys what link building strategies/methods are totally white hat and what methods are black hat?

    In essence, that's true. But if nobody visits your site, nobody will know that you have good content. So nobody will link to you :) That's why responsible link building is necessary, in my opinion.

    As for the blackhat link building methods, I would avoid buying links. I'm a fan of building contextual links, i.e, links placed in relevant content posted on Web 2.0 sites, wiki sites, article direcories, press release sites etc.

    Well, the problem comes in forum postings .

    even we post natural way, with out any links. many started viewing our website.

    we should choose good forums. if we choose useless forums, the results will be go very negative.
