Hi, I just started Learning SEO, I need to get clarified that the difference between black hat and white hat SEO.

Please tell me the difference between the both. it helps me to choose which one i can go with first!

Thanks in Advance!
Hi NagaGopal, I am also a new learner in the field of SEO. As far as I know there a numerous things that fall under white hat and black hat SEO practices. You must be already aware that white hat involves all the legal practices that search engine permits for doing SEO and black hat involves all those practices prohibited by the Search engines.
I am not going to stuff in the information here because you can find everything about these practices on google already. But watching this thread just in case someone experienced responds and writes something useful here.

White hat SEO is following all the rules and regulations of Search engines. This takes time but white hat SEO is stable.

Black hat SEO is ranking your website by not following the rules. This gives you quick results but this is not stable.

White Hat SEO:
1. It follows search engine guidelines
2. It centers on a human audience.
3. It takes a long-term strategy.

Black Hat SEO:
1. It violates search engine guidelines.
2. It depends on manipulative tactics.
3. It focuses on speedy successes.

Blackhat is something google does not like and whitehat tactics are those recommended by google to rank your website.

Unless you post a large amount of relevant content in a daily basis (think of a newspaper) that people will use as a reference and therefore build backlinks for you for free, you'll have to build those backlinks on your own.
That's it in a nutshell.

Blackhat SEO involves all the illegal activities, which google doesn't allow, comes in the category of spam, like keyword stuffing, poor link building, doorway pages, thin content pbn links, etc, you can say using unnatural techniques to manipulate google's search result called blackhat SEO

WhitehatSEO- Involves all the natural ways allowed and suggested by Google itself, to rank your site, like natural link building blogging and not manipulating google search results, the organic and natural traffic which comes from your right and smart work.

Blackhat SEO focuses on practices that go against Google's Webmaster Guidelines.

The focus is less on providing value to the end-user as well as a general disregard for search intent.

The idea is to just drum up traffic using whatever means, fair or foul, to get eyeballs in front of your target content.

There's also a heavy emphasis on churn and burn, meaning you build pages, websites, and link networks with the understanding that this is going to be found out and you're going to have to start from scratch again later on.

The idea is that you're going to be making so much money that it's all worth the hassle.

Don't get me wrong.

Blackhat SEO works, but it's a continuous arms race with Google because Google is using artificial intelligence as well as actual machine learning based on user behavior.

So, unless you have a huge network of domain names and a heavy amount of resources including software, it's going to be a very expensive game to play.

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of modifying published content and metadata to improve the website's ranking in search engines.

The main difference between Black Hat SEO and White Hat SEO is that Black Hat SEO changes a site's metadata without changing its underlying content, which can lead to a site being scored as spammy by search engines.

In contrast, White Hat SEO practices rely on creating engaging websites that better serve their users' needs - Google has said they "don't penalise any one strategy for being 'white hat' or 'black hat', so long as it obeys our Webmaster Guidelines".

The term "White Hat" itself isn't rooted in a purely ethically motivated philosophy, but rather comes from programming languages

Basically, Black hat is the illegal way to trick Google to rank up a site while White Hat is the legal way to do so.

For the former, sooner or later, Google will hunt you down and you wouldn't want your dear site to get slashed down to 100th page just because you wanted shortcut.

FYI, there's another stuff hanging in between them that's Grey hat which is a balance between legal and illegal.
