    Black SEO is slightly darker than White SEO.

    Pretty simple, White hat does not use automated tools what so ever, no spam no multiple facebook accounts or anything close to that. Just manual backlinks, manual regular updates on socials and blog.

    Whitehat is typically considered more 'ethical'. Less automation, less spam, less sneaky tactics.

    "White SEO" is a joke, no whitehat SEO at all, any SEO isn't allowed by search engines.

    If you mix black hat seo and white hat seo, you get grey hat seo.

    I am getting tired of seeing these threads. It's almost as if they are being posted by a 'bot. Almost.

    Jesus christ with black hat and white seo bullshit. What google want as a white hat site is site like facebook, a site that goes viral where everyone links back to it without the site owner pulling their fingers.

    And what are the chances of that happening for joe blow creating a site and have people linking to them.

    And the so called manual shit that people call as white hat is rubbish, I use to chunck out 500 links a day manually? do you still call that white hat? bull

    I can use software and only create 20 links a day, do you call that black hat?

    Using a software just helps the process, helps you with the manual task.

    It's like saying a gun is bad, no it's not, its the person who kills with it.

    I once had DELL seo company contacted me to buy links from me, do we still call that white hat?

    Am so tired about all the bull shit you hear from whitehat and blackhat arguement.

    I will even say 95 percent of sites on google uses blackhat if you count blackhat as intentionally building links to your site.

    Rant over

    I am seeing all these comment and I had to put my 2 cents in. WHITEHAT SEO is making a website and not doing anything to it except running your blog. Pushing unique content out from your site. Any type of link build will be considered grey hat or BLACK HAT. Google wants links to go to your site natural by others reading your blog and linking to your unique content.

    The problem with this is if you don't have any links you wont be ranked and nobody will be able to read your blog. LOL The stupidity behind it! I was nieve when I first started thinking if I had a quality website it would take off. Yeah, I wasted a year trying to get it to go. I came on BHW and it was ranking in 3 months.

    Pointless thread. This discussion has been beaten to death for years. Do some research before making a new thread and you'll find plenty of discussions on this.

    Now for the sake of contributing...

    As you play the IM game and run a few failed/successful campaigns using automation/manual techniques, you'll eventually see that the line between "blackhat" and "whitehat" is quite thin.

    Honestly, I think its used more as of a label by the more smug blog owners and entities (ahem, Mr. G man) to negatively judge those of us who are smart enough and innovated enough to beat Google's system.

    White hat SEO is when you use techniques that search engines like in order to rank your site.
    Black hat is when you use techniques and tools that search engines do not like for the same purpose, it is as simple as that.

    There is no grey hat. Either you are white hat or black, grey comes into ply when someone is donig something blackhat that is actually working. It is still blackhat, but no one is punishing you for it. In time they will, as the penguin update proved.

    Search engines do not like you to build any backlinks for the purpose of manipulating the SERPs. To some people this means you never build links.

    Absolutely nothing could be further than the truth. The web functions by linking, to stop is foolhardy. Any time you build a link for traffic or promotion, it will not hurt you, with the caveat that your link should be related to your website in some way.

    You can have links from directories and forums because this is normal behavior on the web. Links from larger players in your field will help you, as will links going out to these sites. All of this is perfectly normal behavior for someone promoting their website, along with many other techniques.

    What you need to do is simply pay attention to your on-page SEO, and generally build links that are related to your website.

    In other words, if you own a website about autos, going about the web looking at auto sites and dropping a comment link or some other link will never hurt you. As long as your activity on the net is consistent with your website content you will have no problems.

    You are allowed, even expected, to promote your business online, because every site on the web does. If you leave a blog comment on a site about autos, in the example above, it would be a plus to you, because the site you built a link from would be related to autos. If you were to link from a cooking site, the link may well be considered spam.

    When you start to use automated tools, and getting links from everywhere it becomes obvious that you are trying to manipulate the SERPS, and it becomes black hat. creating spun pages as SERP bait is black hat, writing quality content is not.

    It is blackhat to create a persona on Digg and promote your own website.
    It is white hat to do the same thing with your real name.

    in this example, the result is the same, and Google may never figure out what you did, especially if you use a proxy or VPN, but one is black hat and one is white hat. One is promoting your business in an accepted way, the other is trying to manipulate the SERPs.

    The definition of black hat and white hat are also constantly evolving. Blog commenting used to be white hat, until it got spammed out and suddenly became black hat (or at the very least grey hat).

    Don't worry about what is considered which and just worry about what Google will want to see 2-3 years down the line and start doing that NOW.

    Black Hat SEOs: admit they intentionally try to manipulate Google to get better rakings

    White Hat SEOs: lie about not trying to manipulate Google to get better rankings.

    White Hat: On Page SEO, SERPS Notification/Submission, Content maintenance & Prayer.

    Black Hat SEO: All the above + Anything Off Site (Manual/Automated). Manual just happens to be slower and in some cases Higher Quality.

    My SEO is not going to rely on the efficacy of Prayer.

    White Hat SEO is basically doing things that are allowed by the search engines. These include regularly updating your contents and using relevant keywords. Over stuffing of links, keywords and spamming are Black Hat SEO. They do not conform with the rules stated by google and other similar search engines.
