    There is various method of SEO! Like White hat, Grey hat, Black hat etc. White hat is the only way to improve your site ranking as step by step! White hat methods are very friendly Seo that are more easy others methods like black or grey hat! So I always like White hat Seo rather than Black hat Seo. And Black hat Seo are using various kinds of tools to improve your site ranking very quickly but it’s not effective or proper way to SEO! So, White hat are really best methods rather than others.

    @george, Black hat SEO is not frowned upon by SEO gurus. I strongly recommend that you stick to white hat or the Google approved SEO. But you have to understand that many "black hat SEO" techniques of the past are now white hat SEO techniques, in some cases they were the pioneers of SEO. But, this is for professionals to deal with, not for novices, so stick to white hat and everything approved by google and other search engines and let people who live off SEO think about the dark arts and gray areas :)

    White hat SEO is the ethical practice of SEO, ethical here mean complying to Googles T&C of service. With bascial mean not manipulating the SERPs by such mean as paid links,link farms etc. the problem with white hat SEO is that it is harder, plus some things that have been white hat have now become grey or black hat.

    Simply put,
    WhiteHat SEO = Good!
    BlackHat SEO = OK, but white is better (Black does not follow guidelines etc.)

    Whitehat SEO is basically a website that adheres to the search engines website guidelines; i.e. Google Webmaster Guidlines

    Blackhat SEO is basically websites that do not adhere to the search engines website guidelines; i.e. things like Google on Cloaking, etc

    A white hat is the hero or good guy, especially in computing slang, where it refers to an ethical hacker who focuses on securing and protecting IT systems. In recent years, the terms white hat and black hat have been applied to the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) industry.

    There are two types of seo:- one is white hat seo/ organic seo and another is black hat seo/in-organic seo. organic seo is good for us. so, don't do black hat seo.

    Legal activities which are carried out to promote and build backlinks for your website are known as white hat SEO techniques. Black hat activities are banned by Google, so using such techniques may harm your website ranking.

    Achieving top ranking can make a significant difference to the number of targeted visitors finding your web site. With most businesses now moving onto the web, the ability to make your web site visible will determine whether you get the kind of new business returns from the Internet that are possible. Of course, competition for "first page listings" is increasing every day and finding the time, knowledge and cost required to earn them have become more challenging.
