    I believe, abused white hat techniques are known as grey hat...

    For instance, keyword insertion is one white hat practice. But if your stuff keyword unnecessary that would be counted as grey hat.

    Link blasting is another example of grey hat.

    this forum is for white hat practice as said by Rebecca. Whereas those black and gray color hats are for pros only and may get your site banned by google also

    I think we could ask the same question about what google does sometimes. Is pushing the organic results down on the page black hat or grey hat?

    Blackhat can be risky, but it will usually give you faster results, whereas greyhat covers your tracks, but it can take much longer to see results.

    Blackhat and grey hat are both unethical and could eventually hurt you in the Google rankings or even get your site removed.

    Gray hat SEO iѕ SEO techniques that takе more risks thаn white hat SEO techniques but аrеn't lіkеly tо gеt your site banned from search engines (although a search engine penality соuld result). They're questionable SEO techniques but nоt іn the sаme category аѕ black hat SEO techniques. However, what'ѕ considered gray hat SEO today mіght bе black hat SEO nеxt year.

    following google rules is white hat seo.
    And following black and white hat seo rules is called grey hat seo.

    White Hat techniques are those techniques that are liked by the Search Engines and the sites that follow these techniques are rated White hat and are liked by the search engines.The Black hat techniques are not liked by the search engines and are in the end punished or penalized. The Gray hat techniques are those that fall in between those two strategies.

    Gray Hat SEO is a cross between White Hat SEO and Black Hat SEO, White Hat SEO is trying to build pages for human visitors, while Black Hat SEO is trying to build pages for the search engine robots, and could get your site de-indexed (i.e. removed from the search engines entirely)

    Greyhat seo is techniques which are frowned upon such as buying links. Blackhat seo is totally breaking the rules: things like cloaking and hidden text.

    Gray hat SEO is SEO techniques that take more risks than white hat SEO techniques but aren't likely to get your site banned from search engines (although a search engine penality could result). They're questionable SEO techniques but not in the same category as black hat SEO techniques. However, what's considered gray hat SEO today might be black hat SEO next year.

    Black hat SEO is the use of techniques that are unacceptable to search engines to boost a page's position in search results. These techniques are intended to trick search engines into giving pages higher positions in search results, and they have no benefit to site visitors. The goal is to improve search engine result positions no matter what it takes to do it.
