Dear all, I think I mentioned these things elsewhere, but SEO by definition means getting a site to the top of search (read Google) for the given search term.
It is that simple.
White hat, has various definitions, but in SEO land it means “allowed by Google”. Black hat means “not allowed”.
SEO people will as a rule, do what it takes to get their clients site at the top of search and that is what they are being paid to do.
Black hat emerges when they get caught, doing what is not allowed. Until then, they are all OK.
A bit like our friend Lance Armstrong. When no one knew he was doing drugs, he was the champion. Now he’s been caught, his ranking has been punished.

All the best
