    Automation, faking,hiding and inflating are pretty much all considered black hat.

    Take note, big difference between fraud/steeling and blackhat

    Blackhat techniques are ones that go against the terms and conditions (usually Googles)

    These days it's anything that is not considered "ethical promotion" by the search engines.

    Most of it revolves around self promotion, inflating exposure, spamming for profit etc.
