    Hey hows it going so one of my competitors is throwing thousands and thousands of spammy links to my site up to about 199k now and thats what shows on ahrefs. Its been about 2 and a half weeks maybe more he's been doing it but I've been steadily in my positions not moving at all, Im just wondering should i just continue my link building the way I am and not worry to much because GWT and Majestic show a lot different than the spam thats coming in ahrefs shows a lot different? Any suggestions any help or ideas will be thankful!

    Ahrefs catches more links than other services, that's why they are not showing up in Majestic. Go to Webmaster Tools and disavow.

    Disavow the links quickly and then start adding fresh content to your site and hopefully you will have a chance.

    Disavow that shit. Might not affect your rankings at the minute but give it time and do nothing and you'll notice a decrease.

    Good luck with negative SEO and seeing any sort of success with the disavow.

    Best method to start protecting your site now is to begin removing those links.

    Quick question OP: how did you find out your competitor is doing negative SEO? It's pretty tricking pin-pointing who exactly did that to you to my knowledge.

    He is seeing thousands of spammy links. When he is not created that, then who else will be doing that.
