    Black hat SEO is pretty much any technique that 'cheats' in order to get a better position in the SERPs.

    I think the only way to get ranked on Google these days is professional black-hatting.

    Just my opinion ...

    I agree 100%
    See the spam results of google on Popular keywords like Viagra, Cialis, Phentermine, Hoodia etc and you'll be amazed to see top 40 listings only with Cloaking websites

    black hat = short term, unethical gains (Possibility of being banned by search engines)

    White hat = Ethical SEO techniques and long term gains

    Black hat is a technique wherein SEOs use spamming and unethical techniques like keyword stuffing, cloaking, hidden texts, doorway pages, link farming, etc. That technique may cause you a lot of trouble bringing back the site you optimized.

    YOu guys are all black hat seo people to an extent. You go around submitting your sites to directories for extra links, you alter your pages so the search engines will rank you higher.

    I do the exact same things for my sites, but I write scripts that do it for me. I don't get mass unrelated links either. I get links targeted at least as well as you guys do by doing it by hand.

    As far as sites getting banned, well yes it happens, but i've had completely white hat sites banned for no reason as well. Here is the key to blackhat.... Don't do it on your white hat sites. Build sites on other domains that are throwaway domains, then redirect the traffic to your white hat sites. Really easy and the worst that happens is you lose an 88 cent throwaway domain.

    lol, a few variations of explanations there but this is how I see it

    White hat means following the search engines webmaster rules to the letter (or even pixel!). Nothing naughty, 100% chance of staying in the SERPs

    Black hat means purposely breaking these rules to obtain higher rankings from a number of ways, the majority people have listed here.

    Just remember one of the best saying I have heard that is directly related to SEO: 'There are people who do things by the book and some that don't. In the middle there are people making lots of money' aka in the gray area :)

    Actually it is a neutral method because you do it without spamming. Inbound links are either black hat, white hat and gray hat.

    True. No one is supposed to know how to manipulate search engines algorithms. I bet search engines wish people didn't know backlinks affected SERPs, etc.

    It is all grey hat. The only real white hats are those who don't even know what SEO is.

    That's right, being an SEO is to optimize a website using any methods and techniques to avoid bans by SEs and at the same time increase the website's SERPs.
