    White hat seo is based on legitimate seo techniques while Black hat techniques are performed to deceive the search engine and information. Doorway pages, duplicate content, titles, descriptions of webpages, too much keyword stuffing, and buying back links are some of the techniques that are used through the Black hat and these are quire harmful for information online.

    Black Hat SEO - Techniques used to get higher search rankings in an unethical manner.

    White Hat SEO - Conforms to search engine designs and involves no deception.

    The difference is very simple. Black Hat are such SEO techniques that are against Google Webmaster guidelines and banned by the search engine giant. If you do so then you will be penalized. While White Hat are positive and fair techniques to optimize your website.

    Black hat SEO techniques are the one which are not favored or preferred and are considered faulty and improper methods of SEO implications. Whereas White Hat SEO techniques are just opposite of Black Hat SEO techniques and are always welcome in the SEO world.

    Let's just say that white hat seo is the ethical way and black hat is the other way around (unethical way).

    Everything is already said. Make sure you inform yourself on which methods are white hat and which are black hat. Some guides like Moz has for beginners in SEO are very valuable to learn this and stay updated.

    Black hat seo techniques help to rank your keywords faster in search engines and generates more traffic in shorter time. But the methods followed are not supported by Google and hence your website can get penalized for following such techniques.

    White hat seo is one that follows Google guidelines for website optimization. They keep your website safe from any search engine updates.

    In white hat seo the method used to improve search engine ranking do not violate the constraints of search engine.
    Black hat seo is the contradiction of white hat seo , the methods followed violated the constraints of search engine.

    White hat seo technique means positive link building or they follow the google guideline it take long time to improve your ranking.

    Black hat technique is the fastest way to improve your ranking but its negative link building, it doesn't follow the google guidelines, In my point of view please focus on white hat technique.

    White hat and black hat there is a simple difference.when you follow the search engine guidelines to build backlink it named as whitehat SEO. If you're over optimizing website and backlinks building aggressively it may call as black hat SEO.
