    Hey guys,

    I was wondering about what happens if an already established website decides to ruin its new competitor in terms of seo by creating crazy spammy links pointing out to it. Lets just take an example of Medium and Steemit for a second. What if someday medium tries to completely de-index steemit from the search engines by doing negative SEO. Is that really possible? How is steemit supposed to handle this situation?

    Also, do giant websites such as medium, reddit or even BHW etc put any effort in off-page optimization?

    How do these websites ensure that they're doing fine. What happens if any BHW member (or lets just assume a team of crazy BHW members) lose his mind and create thousands of wildly spammy links pointing to BHW and so, for this reason google deindexes BHW. What options does BHW team have?

    Generally speaking most people dont act in this way. Their more bothered with the possibly hundreds of thousands of pounds they are spending on SEO managers and agencies to make sure they rank well and things like that dont happen.

    Negative SEO is not allowed here.

    Sounds like a negative SEO question.
    You can disavow links & report that's pretty much the only thing you can do

    If it were as simple as spamming shit links at your comp don't you think you would hear a lot more about it? Google is far from perfect but they are not incompetent.

    A lot of the time "negative SEO" is just neutral seo, has no impact.
