    those who know how to do this are not going to tell you. And it is quite non ethical. You better work on your own site and dethrone your competitors, than harm them. Harming them can be somehow moral if they do something really bad, and you want to respond them in kind, but it should not be done in normal circumstances.

    Just think about every technique you have tried to help you rankingthat got you sites deindexed or had their PR lowered and do that. Otherwise get a link spamming app like PRStorm or something like that and go and spam your competitors links to the spa*mhun*tress or Matt Cu*tts websites { I might be being paranoid but we dont want them here - that if if they arent already :0 }

    Im sure you will get them banned in short order.

    EDIT: I type too slow and didnt see Nick's post but I guess he is right. It all depends what you can do to people and still sleep soundly at night. Everybody's level is different. By the mere fact that you asking shows me that you could do this and still sleep soundly. I personally dont have to worry as there is still too many competitors in front of me in the SERPs to try and get them all banned :)

    There is blackhat, there is whitehat and there is low-down, dirty shit. If the only way that you can make money is to sell and inferior product by diminishing in underhanded ways your competition, you are scum. I've had shit like what you suggest done to me and believe me, if I could have crawled through the internet and and strangled the guy who did it, I would have.

    If you build a better mousetrap, people will buy it.

    If you have a shitty mousetrap, people will not buy it.

    People will not buy your shitty mousetrap because you have burned down the factory which makes the better mousetrap.

    My $.02 before I tell you what I REALLY THINK!

    Uptownbulker...I for one do not use such methods but he asked a question and as this is a free thinking and free speaking forum I supplied a response on a theory that may work.

    Remember just because you think something is "low down" doesnt mean people will not do it to you as you have experienced. If you rank no.1 for "buy viagra" I guarantee those dudes will try every dirty trick in the book to get you out of the SERP's.

    I don't like animal poaches either but some of those people are desperate for money to feed their family. Just because I dont like it doesnt mean they will stop and not feed their babies.

    Unfortunately this is the real world. And this is black hat SEO.

    Holy shit. End rant.

    This is good information to know, only for if someone tries something against you. You can have a plan in place to counter-attack. When I was in the window cleaning business, if I lost a customer to competitor fairly, no big deal. That was my lost. I kept a list of accounts that I knew each of my competitors had. If they were using underhanded methods I always beleived in the 2 for 1 theory. Dollar for dollar, I take two of their's for every one they took from me. Most of my competitors learned to leave me alone. And I left them alone as well.

    I have a few ideas on how to do this, like some ones already said, what ever gets you banned from Google you just do to your competitors, but remember, karma will get ya! ;)
