White = Following the Google (mainly) webmaster guidelines
Black = Not following the guidelines, cloaking, hidden text etc
Grey = Bending them somewhat

White hat SEO is to make a good quality site, and then to let the rankings come naturally as a result of your quality.

Black Hat SEO occurs when someone creates websites that are targeted at tricking and manipulating search engines and thereby get irrelevant or poor quality search engine result pages (SERP).

Gray hat SEO are questionable SEO techniques but not in the same category as black hat SEO techniques.

Black hat tactics are those which the search engines do not consider ethical.

White hat SEO means SEO techniques which are well accepted by search engines

Grey hat means anything between these two.

White hat seo is the way to optimize your site by following the Google or other search engine guidelines. Black hat seo is to optimize site with unethical techniques or just misguide the spider. Gray hat seo is doing the black hat somehow using the ethical techniques or search engine guidelines.

with black hat you can get results lot faster than you would with white seo. you will see your site on first page on Google, you will be happy, and then never see it again on any search engine.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with link building. It's been proven time and time again to be one of the best, and fastest, forms to increase your rankings. Your PR may suffer a point or two depending on sources, but even with a decreased PR, often times (personal experience) your rankings will still go up with a huge base of back links.

I've yet to see anyone get removed strictly for link building. Link building through methods of spamming, cloaking, and doorways is a different story.

It's Getting Harder and Harder to Keep A White Hat Clean

While we on White Hat, i just found a good article on the Youmoz blog for everyone to read.

Years ago when I started studying and doing SEO, I came across a lot of varying opinions on the best ways to rank a website in search results. The most common discussions at the time were between "black hat" and white hat" strategies. You know the difference in the two - black hat uses tactics that are shady or underhanded to achieve results, where white hat follows best practices and Google guidelines.

On August 17, 2010, Rand Fishkin wrote an article about a long-standing complaint outlining the effectiveness of webspam and how it appeared to be making a comeback. He points out a number of strategies that raise concerns, but I want to point out one that I have been particularly frustrated with... blog comment spam.

As an SEO enthusiast and practitioner, I try to maintain a balance of duplicating success (not re-inventing the wheel) and staying up to date with new strategies and finding new solutions to old problems. One of the most practical ways of doing this is to try and reverse engineer successful websites. We look at link...

White hat SEO techniques that search engines accept. White hat SEO techniques are beneficial for site visitors as well as for search engines. The best method to get good traffic to your site, but it is very time consuming method. ..Black hat SEO is the use of techniques that are unacceptable to search engines to boost a page's position in search results. They have no benefit to site visitors. That can lead their sites penalized by search engines. Gray hat SEO is questionable SEO techniques but not in the same category as black hat SEO techniques.

White hat SEO is a organic way to promote your website in search engines, search engines like this process and get good page rank, back links and more traffics.
Black hat SEO is inorganic way to work, its break the search engines rules and regulation, while doing black hat seo its need to be spamming,
Gray hat seo is work between both white and black hat manure.
