    Hi All.

    I have been working closely with a client for around 3 years doing White Hat SEO and some Black. However recently the site has plummeted on Google and i'm suspicious that one of their competitors might have engaged a back hat campaign against the site.

    Any ideas on how to find out if there is a secondary 'damaging' campaign going on against a site?

    Peace

    Use a lot of tools to check your backlinks and anchor texts.If you discover something that you haven't did,then yes,it's your competitor :D

    Anchors on backlinks. One of my website has been in the same position recently, and I discovered weird backlinks on porn sites with GWT...

    Ahaa, the obvious is always the first place to start and I have noticed about 250,000 links appear out of nowhere - Ggrrrrr.

    okay - any ideas how I can stop or counter this?
