    In my niche i own a small business my niche has 2 types of businesses within itself. Decent people who run actual businesses (these folks have my respect), and scam companies who run off of pure adwords and PBNs. They are conmen, they have too much market share @ 60%+, and they take as much of your grandma's social security check as they can every time.

    That was only a completely unrelated fun fact.

    If the scam competition took my homepage url and dropped it into gsa ser as a active project would the increase in spam kill my site?
    If my competition has gsa ser is there another way they could weaponize it against me? Would they be wise to use a VPN? defensivly speaking, what attacks may they attempt, and how would they attempt to conceal thier ID?

    I operate ethically. In life there is good guys, and assholes. I will help a good guy out, even if he is my competition, but Fuck assholes

    Have a good weekend all, ty.

    Not quite sure what you're asking or where this is going.

    If you have a legit business that pays you wages, focus on that.

    can GSA SER be weaponized to decrease the trust flow of a money site? I assume this is a growing threat as the big ol G gets smart to BS

    If so can it be weaponized clandestinely with a vpn?

    Your desire to get people to tell you how to do negseo is VERY transparent.

    This looks very suspicious, you want us to explain everything to you so you can follow the advice, you've been rumbled by @patriotnews I'm afraid

    Ill drop this like its hot, but we all know this is a dirty game. I was only referring to hypothetical situations involving actual scammers, real people you dont want showing up to your mom's house to rip her off. Small fires are fought with water larger fires are fought with fire. Sujectivity can be valuable. You should report me for being fucking awesome.

    Conotate seo as "neg" as you wish. I show more respect and grace to my compeitors then I should. If i thought I was behaving immorally I wouldn't make it public. Thanks.

    To answer your question YES, GSA can be used for negative SEO as well, as do many other tools.

    Google dosent have an answer for this yet except for the disavow tool whcih is not working as it should.

    Does your site already pay your bills? How hard was it for you to rank for your niche to begin with? Are you willing to start a new one? If you get hit with a spam bomb, do you feel there is no hope? The only fair thing to do, is to destroy them all:

    Your "ethical" bullshit goes out the window when you come onto "blackhat"world. We are about gaming the system. Most for better, some for worse.

    GSA can be used, but why waste the time/money/effort if you don't already have the software, when you can outsource that shit? You want a step by step list on how to do this or are you looking for an eMercenary?

    That's the most logical reasoning. If I were to attack my competition I would never in a million years do it by Myself, with such low costs, one can safely have it done by some one else that knows his shit.

    (not that I'd do it anyway)

    Truth be told the scammers would win if i made a move. Counter moves would hurt good business owners and or myself. Scammers have powerful pbns ready and waiting, they could be back up same day. It would be a terribly irrisponsible waste of time.

    It would have been nice to realize this earlier. Seems like a touchy topic, i bet it often should be. Im filing this under one "learned the easy way" lots of room there. I dont want my competitors putting me in the line of fire on a suicide mission vs the bad guy, and i'm glad forums like this provide a bit of resistance.

    It is easy to dislike a company who has such a powerful negative impact. It's definately a david vs. Goliath match here. For years i've drawn a blank on a way to take them down, there is no good way. Many will be forced to co exist silently on page 2 or 3 until social signals over power well used adwords and pbns. These guys populate at least 33% percent of page 1 for any decent keywords in this niche. They even hold spaces on pages 2 and 3 making those slightly more competive. I need to set the bar higher for myself, and realize that im not cornered. I'm challenged.

    This boils down to me needing to STFU & work. If it was easy everyone would do it. The challenge is the only reason that the opportunity exists. I should be greatful for the challenge.

    I already look forward to giving back to this site and its users when I'm able. This place is great.

    Thanks
