    White Hat -> by the rules
    Black Hat -> not by the rules

    Make sure you understand the differences between rules and laws.

    Nothing, according to Google rules every link you build is for manipulating search results which basically means blackhat SEO. Whitehat should be when you build a site and hope that someone links to you. Basically there is no white hat SEO.

    Cheers

    Yeah Exactly
    WhiteHatSeo = Just build a website and think Visitors will come.
    BlackHatSeo = Do almost everything you can to get the Users to reach upto you.

    Black hat: you give sleepless nights to Google guys, where you break all the google's set rules
    White hat: where google guys give you sleepless nights, where google sets all the rules for you

    If you want to go with long term business then go with whitehat things but If you want to go with short term money then go with blackhat things.

    Whitehat is promoting your website within the guidelines of the search engine's TOS and acceptable methods.

    Blackhat is promoting your website using methods that are contrary to the search engines TOS and acceptable methods, giving you an unfair advantage over the competition.

    Good luck figuring out what is acceptable.

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