White Hat techniques are those that search engines will not penalize you for using. Writing a quality article that is accepted by a good quality site such as Buzzle and results in a link back to you is White Hat - you deserve the link
Black Hat techniques are any kind of optimization that tries to take your site higher in the search engine rankings when it does not really deserve it. Sometimes this works in the short term but ultimately your site may be penalized or banned
