    Akin to a cowboy movie where heroes wear white hats and villains wear black hats!

    But there are no villains on BHW they are all super cool dudes and dudettes:cool:

    BH = Short term but fast. Risks are high

    WH = Slower, more effort, but longer term. Risks are low.

    White hat is done just with feathers. Black hat is when you use the whole chicken.

    White SEO is slow but legal: unique quality content, keywords, marketing researches, crosslinking and etc.
    For Black SEO you can be banned by a search engine: invisible keywords in the text, using of doorways, link spamming.


    And in fact, the line between black and white SEO has long been obliterated.

    It's a shifting definition at this point, as far as I can gather.
