    Earlier I asked myself who is smarter? Successful white hatters or successful black hatters? At first I thought white hatters because I imagine getting substantial amounts of money through white hatting is harder but then I went with blackhatters because of all the methods I have read on here. I think they are far more complex than any white hat method. So my vote goes to the black hatters. What do you guys think?

    The person who successfully utilizes and mix both white hat and blackhat techniques is the smartest.

    There are smart White hatters and dumb White hatters, smart black hatters and dumb black hatters.

    It depends on the individual. There are people making mega-bucks as white hatters and some who can't make a dime. Same holds true for BH.

    A lot of it has to do with how aggressive the marketer is, and if he/she is outsourcing as a way of "scaling-up". To get the BIG BUCKS, you have to scale-up . . . and that comes down to outsourcing.

    the smartest is the one who can utilize BH techniques to obtain quick cash, but who is then smart enough to then use that quick cash for long term sustainability using WH techniques, as well as understanding and utilizing the best resource(s) which allows them the most effective use of their time and completely realizes that 'time equals money'..

    Black hatters are far more creative, but white hatters are much harder workers :)

    a black hatter can monetize ANYTHING
    a white hatter monetizes known streams of income

    Einstein did math the whitehat way, through years of hard work. End of discussion.

    Naw. You can't compare. It's like comparing races.

    Long ago, the blackhatters are just smart whiter hatter, but now that the blackhat have become a niche, dumb white hatters join and called themselve blackhatters.

    So, the smartest are those who understand everyshit and make big bucks.

    wh are good with things like keyword research , rep builing etc , while bh guys might not be good with keywords and other skills a good blogger must have , but they still get their blogs indexed and in fact spamdexed , with tools like xrummer , pligg sites etc .

    these are two different paths , ending on the same destination , $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    If you ask me, I say blackhatters are usually smarter. Thats because they have to know lots about whitehat to be able to do blackhat... Like trying to stay semi-legit (or make it seem legit) even tho its not...

    The whole thing is about that, the blackhatters are usually making money and stuff for themselves by using every means possible; whitehats are usually SEO professionals who make websites and SE-optimize them for people who pay them. They are responsible for their customers' websites and using blackhat techniques might seem to risky for them...there are also dumb whitehats who are just too afraid to use BH techniques...and dumbness really depends on the person, it doesn't matter whether you call yourself a blackhat or whitehat...

    In my opinion the smartest person is a smart blackhatter that turns their business into a
    sustainable, successful and high earning white hat one.

    This is a very vague question, it's like asking "whos smarter, lawyers or doctors?"
