What kind of techniques are you talking about?

The truth is every now and then more or less everybody does something which can be classified as a so called "blackhat". But that doesn't necessarily mean that they get penalized all the time.

90% of them goes unnoticed.
Black hat techniques were very effective in the past. People used to buy and sell links for money. But now, Google is very smart and can detect the pattern of you are doing the SEO of your website.

Once Google detects a Pattern, It will penalize your site. Your ranking will be destroyed completely and you will have to restart from the beginning.
@bonnieshona Me and my co-workers operate tons of those sites. Which can be called as black hat. But hasn't gotten any penalty so far.

Just take an example say if your friend gives you a link. Then how Google is going to penalize it. Google will just probably won't know it.
Black Hat SEO tactics can get your website banned from Google and other search engines. Though there may be some short-term success through increased traffic to your site, Google penalties are getting more and more sophisticated and can have devastating effects on your rankings and traffic.

Nowadays Black Hat SEO techniques and practices can hurt not only your site's traffic but also your business's credibility. Don't do it.
