Use white hat SEO for long run

You can get on top with black hat SEO technique. But that will only be for short period of time. That is done just to gain initial business and promotion. It is actually finding loop holes in Google algorithm and using that to the benefit.

It is better to use white hat SEO. Though it may take some time, but it will keep you on top for longer time.

It's better to wear a White hat

I have been building websites since 1992 and doing SEO work for just about as long. Some times techniques can be black hat or white hat. Take for example link building. If you use some program to blast off thousands directory submissions at a time, that's considered black hat and not good! But if you use a program that auto fills information to submit to a few directories at a time, that's generally not considered black hat SEO. All SEO companies want to get better ranking for their clients. For the best information try looking at Matt Cutts videos for good white hat methods. Basically have great content and authoritative backlinks.

Difference between white hat and black hat seo

An SEO tactic, technique or method is considered "White hat" if it conforms to the search engines' guidelines and does not attempt to deceive it. White Hat SEO is not just about following guidelines, but is about ensuring that the content a search engine indexes and subsequently ranks is the same content a user will see. White Hat advice is generally summed up as creating content for users, not for search engines, and then make that content easily accessible to their spiders. It is more about user friendliness and accessibility rather than about tilting the odds seriously in one's favor.

Black hat" SEO employs more deceptive methods to try to improve rankings. The search engines usually disapprove these methods. This can range from text that is "hidden", either as text colored similar to the background or by redirecting users from a page that is built for search engines to one that is more human friendly. As a general rule, a method that sends a user to a page that was different to the page described in the search is called Black hat. Search engines can and do penalize sites they discover using black hat methods, either by reducing their rankings or eliminating their listings from their databases altogether. Such penalties can be applied either automatically by the search engines' algorithms, or by a manual review of a site.

But in black hat seo we use some automated systems and link building techniques that are suppose to be illegal and our website can be penalized or perhaps taken down by search engines so always look to work only on white hat seo techniques to get long lasting results.
