    So recently noticed visits decrease to zero.
    My site is duplicated content with amazon aff.
    After checking G webmasters i have noticed backlinks from spam pages to few pages of my site.

    http://prntscr.com/eizp0e
    and http://prntscr.com/eizp86

    Is there any possible way to report that to G ?

    Thanks

    The only thing I've heard of is to disavow them in webmaster tools.

    So now you think maybe it got deindexed?
    Did you try site:domain.com?
    Google doesn't deindex sites for neg seo usually.

    So if google spots "duplicated" content on your site, G can deindex your site?

    Google has repeatedly said that it doesn't penalise duplicate content in any way.

    It just chooses which version of it to show in the search results.

    So maybe the other site that has the same content as yours is being ranked for those terms instead?

    I don't think that G would block whole domain. There are pages like login /register / recover and so on... which has some "unique" content..

    From how I umderstand OP the domain is not deondexed but just not getting the traffic and the rankings, and yes G would have a negative view of a site that only has duplicate content combined with afffiliate links, since in the eyes of G it is a thin site that offers absolutley no value to the readers.
    And do remember that G does and can issue manual actions against webmasters/sites even without informing them of theese.

    Now all that being said you can still rank a site with only duplicate content and even outrank the sites that originally published it, but you need to do it the right way.

    From what you have wrote you can understand that you didn't read whole thread. I wrote that searching by using "site:domain" shows 0 results. Its means that domain was deindexed.

    The threat is real - you competitor can simply grab our URL and blast 1 keyword that you are targeting, and continuously let the tool automatically create a gigantic list of links with just 1 keyword to your URL, and it may not be a week's time, but probably 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, and your site will get hit at the end of the day. Negative SEO is the real deal, and this is contributed by your's truly, the Big G.

    Google pretty much nerfed most spam neg SEO in September last year, but since feb/march updates the shit is back.

    I've done some testing on my own projects (old sites). All of them sit on page 14 lol.

    Don't underestimate Google's algorithm. The problem of Neg. SEO is (of course) well known also in Google's offices.

    To op:
    Get some authority links to your site. Some high DA contextual links from trusted sites with branded or url anchors. If your backlink profile is strong enough neg SEO won't harm you. There is a big confusion these days about Googles latest updates few days ago. Hard to say if your website dropped because of the Neg SEO or because of Googles update.

    And yes, you can report it. Collect the links and disavow them on Google Webmaster Tools.

    Disavowing links doesn't do shit, Google have said that themselves.

    Links are devalued now.

    Penguin becomes more page-specific, not sitewide only
    Google also said this new Penguin algorithm is “more granular.” From its post:

    Penguin is now more granular. Penguin now devalues spam by adjusting ranking based on spam signals, rather than affecting ranking of the whole site.
