A SEO tactic, technique or method is considered white hat if it conforms to the search engines' guidelines and involves no deception. As the search engine guidelines[26][27][28][41] are not written as a series of rules or commandments, this is an important distinction to note. 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 SEO refers to the usage of SEO strategies, techniques and tactics that focus on a human audience opposed to search engines and completely follows search engine rules and policies Or any SEO tactic that maintains the integrity of your website and the SERPs (search engine results pages) is considered a "white-hat" search engine optimization tactic.
White-Hat SEO Tactics:
1. Quality Content

3. Titles and Meta Data
4. Keyword Research and Effective Keyword Use
5. Quality Inbound Links
And last but not the least keep them updating.

white hat seo are practices that are accepted to use in order to get better rankings, more traffic etc. these are techniques that are encouraged by the search engines. practices for both white and black hat seo including link building for example, but it is the way in which it's done that makes it good or bad.

Both techniques can get you results, but if you use black hat seo, you run the risk of your website being banned by the search engines. this can happen by using software submission tools for bookmarking sites and directory submissions. if better to do thing manually as you will not be seen as a spammer.
