    My client has had much success by running his business well,charging a fair price and generally being better than his competition. One competitor with a poor reputation has taken offence and recruited a black hat company. While most of what they did has been defended, there is one trick I cannot seem to defeat. They are causing foreign language phantom pages to be indexed for my client. See sample photo.

    I asked for them to be removed in Search Console and 410'd them, but they keep coming back. Is there a way to stop them being indexed anywhere in this process?

    FYI other mischief: DdoS, hacked client's phone & router, using password file on phone to install malware on client site, stole customer file and contacted customers, changed NAP in Places, Yellow Pages and other directories to screw NAP score. I do wonder how long client will insist on playing this legally. We referred a full file to the Government watchdog but so far no action from them.

    Tuning in on this, hope you catch the bullies.

    I was once a victim of these blackhat techniques. Partnered up with a reputable lawyer team and got the two offenders thrown to jail for 1½ years and I got a hefty sum in damages as well. I managed to find them in a sneaky way, if you can find them, then you can probably do something legally if they're in the same country.

    Hi Blasterweb, yes we tried, spent a lot of money having a forensic IT company do a full dossier on them, and handed that over to the Government Agency that acts like the police. They don't think it is big enough to trouble them. Small business - who cares you know.

    We have been unable to trace to see where the links are coming from. On the whole these guys have the morality of criminals but sadly they are very good.
    Cheers

    I think you priority is to delete these links on SERP. As it might on a long run be a causeto negate your client website growth .

    As Google would see these links as armed links .

    Ho Topiano, yes indeed, the question is how do I delete them? Removing pages tool in Search Console didn't actually remove them. Cheers.
