    What is the detailed difference between black hat SEO and white hat SEO?
    I'm visiting many threads and different forum but can't find the exact information regarding to that. So after searching, decided to start the thread for the better information about B & W Hat SEO here. I hope you BHW guys help me better in this matter. Wait for your replies.

    Both are good, just do them RIGHT.

    Whitehat is the proper way to do it, by the book so to speak.
    Blackhat is the 'out of the box' short term way of doing things (largely speaking).

    Both have their uses, both are effective.

    Generally speaking white hat is proper manual link building while black hat is using automated tools. White hat is about quality while black hat is about quantity. Writing 10 articles from scratch vs. spinning one article into 10. Google prefers quality but even complete shit can work short term if you have enough of it.

    I dont think there is a difference between whitehat and blackhat because it is against google's TOS either way to build your own website backlinks. Google is expecting sites to naturally gain links, and thats what we, as black hatters :p, try to simulate.

    I totally agree. If you think about it that way, everything is pretty much black hat. My advice to everyone would be to stop worrying about the distinction and just focus on building backlinks. You'll have a good knowledge on this sooner or later.

    I just had this conversation with someone and we came up with a conclusions.

    White Hat and Black Hat are barely distinguishable,

    We came up with that fact that, White Hat is simply a slower version of Black Hat.

    You could do White Hat with Black Hat, just hire 100 VA's to do "real webmaster" backlinking.

    Just a thought

    One works really well, and makes loads of money, gets you respect and teaches you lots about SEO - the other is white hat :)
