    In the words of SEO Consultant, John Andrews, 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."

    Like Nexevo said it's a mix or combination of white hat & black hat techniques.

    Grey Hat SEO is somewhere in the middle of white and black and if used by a professional, can still be effective. However, it’s safe to say that taking a grey hat approach is playing with fire if you’re not 100% sure of what you’re doing, it’s not something I would recommend.


    Grey hat consists of techniques such as:


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

    A good example of Gray Hat SEO is link buying. Google specifically prohibits parties from participating in link schemes.

    Greyish Hat SEO is an SEO exercise that's more risky than White-colored Hat SEO, but one that may or may not outcome in your website being prohibited from google and their online websites.

    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.
