    There are lots of methods however blackhat is an approach to be used with the expectation of losing your serp eventually.

    It's not a means to getting high stable rankings for many years to come.

    It's true any offsite seo is considered blackhat in Google's eyes.

    Of course there will be a risk, you are trying to game google, if they "find out" then they can penalize your website. But its always the same, you need to balance the risk over the potential reward.

    On-page seo that is within Google Webmaster Guidelines is not considered black hat seo.

    Building backlinks to promote your website is not either.

    Of course, there is a risk involved in building blackhat links (That's why it's name given "Blackhat")

    White hat SEO is following Google's Guidelines by keeping a low OBL count, creating a clear text hierarchy, including keywords in your posts, etcetera. You're just optimising your website based on Google's Webmaster Guidelines.
