    Black hat SEO means the illegal ways to rank up the website and grey hat SEO means that to rank the website with half legal ways and half illegal ways.

    Gray Hat SEO is an SEO practice that's riskier than White Hat SEO, but one that may or may not result in your site being banned from search engines and their affiliate sites.

    Grey hat is the combination of White hat and Black hat SEO. Grey hat SEO is important because it could improve your site's ranking without negative consequences, or it could cost you thousands in lost traffic.

    Grey hat consists of techniques such as:

    Cloaking
    Purchasing old domains
    Duplicate content
    Link buying
    Social media automation and purchasing followers

    Grey Hat SEO is the practice of using technically legal methods to improve your site rankings, but which are ethically dubious, and could one day become black hat. Think of it like legal highs.

    Grey hat SEO techniques are a combination of Black Hat SEO techniques and white hat SEO techniques. It is basically making use of white hat techniques up to a level where it is just about to become a black hat SEO technique.

    For example:- Let's say link building. Link building comes under white hat SEO - SEO that search engines love. But link spamming comes under black hat SEO - which search engines hate. So, grey hat SEO will be creating lots of links and stopping just before it comes under link spamming.

    Similarly with keywords. Having a good number of keywords is good for SEO, but stuffing too many keywords is bad for SEO and will be penalized. Gray hat SEO is just finding the right amount of balance between the two.

    Coming to the next question, is Grey hat SEO bad for your website. And the answer is it actually depends on which side you are tilted more. If you are more towards the Black hat side, you are not in a good position, but if you are avoiding those black hat techniques, you are good to go!

    Hope it helps !

    Grey Hat SEO is the practice of using technically legal methods to improve your site rankings, but which are ethically doubtable, and could one day become a black hat.

    Generally, there are three types of SEO
    1. White Hat - Using techniques that are under search engine rules.
    2. Grey Hat - Using methods that are not a black hat but can become black hat in the future.
    3. Black Hat - Using methods that are not appropriate and against the search engine rules.

    Gray Hat SEO is not something between Black Hat and White Hat, but rather "the practice of tactics/techniques which remain ill-defined by published material coming out of Google, and for which reasonable people could disagree on how the tactics support or contrast with the spirit of Google’s published guidelines."
