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.

The term grey hat refers to a computer hаcker or computer security expert whose ethical standards fall somewhere between purely altruistic and purely malicious. The term began to be used in the late 1990s, derived from the concepts of "white hat" and "black hat" hаckers. When a white hat hаcker discovers vulnerability, they will exploit it only with permission and not divulge its existence until it has been fixed, whereas the black hat will illegally exploit it and/or tell others how to do so. The grey hat will neither illegally exploit it, nor tell others how to do so
A further difference among these types of hаcker lies in their methods of discovering vulnerabilities. The white hat breaks into systems and networks at the request of their employer or with explicit permission for the purpose of determining how secure it is against hаckers, whereas the black hat will break into any system or network in order to uncover sensitive information and for personal gain. The grey hat generally has the skills and intent of the white hat but will break into any system or network without permission.
According to one definition of a grey-hat hаcker, when they discover vulnerability, instead of telling the vendor how the exploit works, he or she may offer to repair it for a small fee. When one successfully gains illegal access to a system or network, he or she may suggest to the system administrator that one of his or her friends be hired to fix the problem; however, this practice has been declining due to the increasing willingness of businesses to prosecute. Another definition of Grey Hat maintains that Grey Hat hаckers only arguably violate the law in an effort to research and improve security: legality being set according to the particular ramifications of any hаcks they participate in.

Black hat SEO is known as SEO spamming, and is when someone creates websites that have little value or no value at all, that are intended to trick the search engines into offering irrelevant or low-quality search results.
And Grey hat SEO pushes more than  White hat SEO, but not to the point where your website will get banned like you often find with Black hat SEO. In spite of this, you still need to be cautions of the employed tactics because  they may still venture into Black hat SEO territory and result in search engine penalties.
