    Hi There,

    One of my site's ranked #3 this month on a high / comp. keyword 15.000 local a month results 45.500.000

    Now the #2 is wikepedia and the #1 is a particulair website.

    Now the last view weeks i see lots of bad backlinks pointing to my website, iam pretty sure the owner from the #1 website is sending this links to me.

    I do not prever to destroy his website but i think i have no other choise.

    Please advice me on what to do.

    Have a nice day and thanks for reading my post.

    If he is doing this with a lot of anchor texts, enjoy the ride to #1 :D

    Or if that's not the case, feel free to pm me your site. It's better to have a look first and decide what to do next.

    Cheers.

    Is your site aged? Does it have a ton of backlinks already? If you got some kind of authority on your site then you don't have to worry about it, his links are probably going to help you even more. If your site is new and he's throwing 1000s of profiles then.... I wish you good luck.

    When using the Google disavow tool you will only need to fill in the domains that link to you, not all their pages. Most spammers use sitewide links which are easy to remove with the disavow tool, but have in mind that you will need to wait for several weeks before the report you have sent does the job.

    Also, you could use link removal tools. I have recently written an article on this subject, which you can read here: http://seofen.com/4-mandatory-tools-for-link-removal-after-google-penalty/. The article gives tips on how to get rid of Penguin penalty, but it works in your case too.

    My advice is remove your bad backlinks and wait.
    If the competitor continues to make bad links to your site, remove them and contact to the competitor.
    Tell him that if he does not stop, you will not stay passive.
    If the competitor continues to make bad links, get Xrumer, SB, GSA, etc. and make him billions backlinks with anchor: casino, free..., p*rn, viagra, p*rn with animals, {name of site} sux, etc. :)

    If you don't want to be polite, just spam the competitor.
    Hope this helps. :)

    Does spamming new competitors with backlinks still work? I am moving up to page 1 soon with my new website, and I'm paranoid about people spamming my site. Is there other tools other than disavowel tool to prepare myself just in case? or is the disavowel tool the only thing I can use to protect my site? thanks
