    Did anyone have suffered this situation? How to solve it? I receive an unnatural link e-mail from google. Now my keyword is declining (4 to 19)

    Dearalex,

    One of your only legitimate courses of action is to first contact that competitor (if you can find out who it is from your server logs) and ask them to stop. Document any interactions or other efforts that you have undergone to get this to stop. If that does not work, put together the data you have collected along with the links and submit a disavow links request to Google.

    Alternatively you could get the competitor's IP address from server logs and research ways to ban them from your site.

    Ideas on how to do that here,

    Best,

    Clone your site and canonize to the new site. You will waste too much time trying to resurrect the rankings. When you build the new site, build plenty of varied high PR links to it to help prevent another penalty from occurring.

    use Disavow option and they will ignore it.
