    Blackhat works for ranking but for how long is determined by your knowledge/skill. I'd only use it for short term sites/projects with high revenue commissions. What specifically are you wanting to know?

    What I never understood is why people want to know black hat techniques that can get them banned, instead of using safe, long-term white hat strategies? Just a question. Because personally, I feel that because I use white hat techniques I am not afraid of any kind of Google changes/algorithms.

    Precisely because it can get a competitor banned.

    Years ago it was greed but hopefully we're all older and wiser now.

    Ooooh, that's for OTHER people's websites. Then it makes sense. I thought they need techniques for their own websites.

    Make do-follow backlinks from un-moderated forum is a part of blackhat SEO.

    I guess new people to IM see it as a shortcut and/or interesting. If you are planning for long-term then white hat would be best.
    Black hat is used (successfully) in mainly two situations:
    1. Very competitive niches (weight loss, credit cards, etc)- usually the majority (non-authority sites) ranking well are using some BH methods.
    2. Very high commission payouts-commissions in the $$$ to $$$$ per sale.
    They make more than enough revenue really quick this way and their ROI is great. So it doesn't matter if their site gets caught with a penalty because they'll trash that one and start a new one. A lot of these people own their own PBN as well, have content writers, etc.

    I wouldn't do BH for an AdSense site making $0.25-0.50 clicks or $2-5 affiliate commissions, ROI just not worth the effort.

    Thank you so much for explaining it to me! You made it perfectly clear for me :) I only followed the white hat SEO strategies because I was in it for long-term. And now my websites are like my babies, so now definitely wouldn't risk it using BH techniques.

    You can buy amany links for small money. This can lead to a bad result, you can bury your site. Google determines the quality of links, the quality of sites where links are placed. This is your choice. I recommend practicing white Seo.

    Don't use black hat techniques. At some point you will get banned by google. Focus on quality content for your sites. This is what google is looking for.

    Check out kjh-08's response, it'll make things clear why some people are OK using BH techniques. I personally always went for quality and the legit ways to build my websites.
