    Black Hat are mostly only some short term methods to earn money online and are illegal of course. White Hat on the other hand is legal and involves serious businesses. I always try to use the legit way to start a business, but what do you use for SEO?

    Always white hat for me. I would not like to risk all the hard work that I have done and the search engine positions that my sites have already achieved by implementing black hat SEO methods that could result in a site being banned from the search engines.

    So far I never heard a person which is implement black hat strategic and earn a lot from it. A legal business strategic will last for long time, whereas illegal strategic stop work when they get caught.

    As a SEO professional i would say only white hat SEO helps in ranking a site in search engines. Never follow the black hat seo tactics for your site for ranking in search engines.

    Black hat seo may helps you in ranking your site in a quicker period of time, but after a while your site will be thrown out of search engines. Mainly Google says that never to practice black hat SEO. After the recent Google penguin update most of the site were pushed down in terms of ranking as they indulge in black hat SEO.

    Black hat is not really illegal, it just violates the ground rules established by the search engines (particularly Google).

    Even though it is not illegal, it is a very bad idea for most websites. It is a way to try to boost your search engine traffic but almost always is a short term solution. In the long run, if you are caught using black hat tactics then those methods may actually harm your site. With the recent Penguin adjustment, Google proved what most people assumed: that they will figure out black hat methods being used and will take steps to negate them.

    Stay away from any method that tries to trick the search engines. Concentrate on getting links that are from trusted sites.

    White hat, of course, if you don't want to get penalized by Google or any of the other search engine giants.

    Yes it is a valid point about white and black hat seo. White hat usually follows the rule of search engine optimization while black hat seo is against the rules of search engine optimization and break the rules and irrelevant posting and putting links are part of this seo.

    Black Hat SEO is considered as an unfair means as per norms of Google and it is used to get quick results without following search engine's rules.Google can penalize your website for applying Black Hat SEO.
    Whereas White Hat SEO is time taking process than Black Hat SEO but it is a reliable process for long term.So we should follow the rules of White Hat SEO.

    Depends on what type of user you are and what your intentions are actually.
    If you are a spammy user that want to do something quick, get the cash and don't care about the future and the domain you can go full black hat!
    If you care for a right link building and reputation management as well as long term rankings white hat.
    Of course you can be a legitimate white hat seo guy with some black hat interests and try GREY hat seo..(refers to techniques that aren't white hat but still cannot be called 100% black hat seo)

    If you get the time and enough budge, white SEO is a best option. The white SEO takes more than four years. Be patient.
    If you would like to see the results and effects immediately, you can use some strategies of Black hat SEO.

    Whitehat works the best. I feel that I do not want to go to the work and do black hat and then have the search engines ban my site or delist me. Then it was wasted work.

    I guess you could call it white hat, but I work to give visitors what they are looking for. I try to focus on my visitor and make sure they are happy, so they will tell others about me. As far as page structure, I do follow common sense, like having an easily navigable site structure and an eye-pleasing design. I handle a few on-[page factors. Off page, I keep it real. If I can add value on the Net, I do. I don't go after links for the sake of getting links. I don't manipulate, I strive to over delivery and Wow human visitors, rather than chasing search engine spiders.

    I would say what I do is more of a value-based system rather than plugging away at ranking factors.

    I use both white hat and black hat previously but finally all my website with black hat is die, and therefore now i use only white hat. White hat take longer time and more work but it can last longer compare to black hat

    Believe it or not, you can get away with a LITTLE bit of black hat. But overall, you're better off just focusing on content and reaching the top in the normal fashion.

    Good summary, and black hat is indispensable for a new website in most cases.
