    Hey,

    I'm in a very competitive space, and have some competitors who are obviously using a PBN and doing some really shady link building. They're growing quickly and outranking very legit sites.

    What's the best way to report this to Google?

    Such topics (neg seo) are frowned upon here! having been a victim myself that is a really low move! The OP is why you should hide your PBN from web crawlers.

    Im building for long term, not looking to churn and burn a site. I'm building lots of legit links but won't be going black hat.

    I'll report obvious PBNs all I want. We're all playing the same game. Try to make me feel bad for that? LOL I don't give a fuck

    Im not building any links to them. They built the shitty links. It'll get found sooner or later. Not sure why I should feel bad about speeding that up.

    LOL, any links YOU build is considered Black Hat! You are doing exactly thesame thing with different types of links but want to report someone else for exactly what you are doing yourself...? And be careful your competitor does not Neg seo you in retaliation to your action. So in the end you both lose!!

    LOL, and how do you build links? Oh wait, by proactively building links you are already in the grey/black area. Or are you only doing infographics, legit PR etc.?

    LOL if black hat is game then this is game. The way you guys determine what is acceptable and what isn't makes zero sense to me. By definition gaming Google's alrgorithm with a PBN is not playing by the rules. But you expect me to play by your rules?

    There are no rules. Get over it.

    You can leave if you don't like it... We won't miss you. Stop being in denial. What we do is not malicious, its black hat. What you're doing is malicious. I hope your competitors continue to outrank your, or if you successfully get their PBN hit, I hope they NEG SEO you into no where. You doing this starts a war, then your competition will hit you right back.

    Beat them the right way.

    EDIT:
    While this isn't exactly against the rules and just very frowned upon, your comment about there being no rules is wrong. Read here:
