    Neither, Gray-hats do.

    Simple reason. They are white-hat affluent enough with the over-world corporate logistics and politics to operate in the mainstream economy and black-hat savvy to realize that the ultimate ends justify the profitable means.

    Anytime a system of making money is involved laws will be put in place to continually widdle down that system until it becomes too saturated with red-tape to give it any serious thought for a productive means of earning any profits.

    All SEO is Black Hat. Think about it. Either way, you're just trying to influence the search engines so they'll favor you.

    There is a lot of money to be made in the gray area.

    For me personal I make much more doing white than black, but that means there's lots of growth and opportunity in black hat for me. :)

    Depends on how you want to compare

    A WH site will make u money over long periods of time, and if your any good, it will grow each year

    A BH will make u money quickly but not for very long, as google will ban you at some stage

    I hate it when people say that. Black Hat is defined as unethical whereas White Hat is not.

    white/grey hat is the long term good choice. a lot less pointless running around after algorithm tweaks.

    the right black hat scheme can bring in a lot of short term cash though.

    This is a very complicated question despite the answers people are giving. More money long term or on an per/hour work base?

    I believe in all SEO, there will be some black hat techniques used, like using stumbled upon, social bookmarkers... are these black hats techniques?

    Personally I think all big money white hatter's sprinkle a little black hat into their strategy. So yes, gray hat all the way

    I believe finding the right mix, will be a better long term solution, a bit of this and a bit of that will go a long way.
