    So recently a jealous loser decided that negative SEO is only way to outrank me. He is spamming my money site with ton of bad links, including p0rn links.

    I built very few but high quality links, therefore i can easily identify which links is not mine. Arcording to Ahrefs, his campaign started on 15th of this month and number of links are increasing continously. Currently, my site still hold strong positions, but i guess it gonna drop very soon if i do nothing.

    I dont add my sites to GWT because i think that's natural, but i guess i have to add it now. The backlinks take a lot of time to show up on GWT, so i cant wait to see full list of bad links. There must be some alternative ways to do it.

    I have few question: What is the best way to disavow those links ? How long does it take to process my disavow request ?

    Thank you a lot for your help, i need to act ASAP before those links affect my ranking.

    Disavow is one method to go.
    Second method is in case you know who is doing it, get in touch with them and tell that you too can reciprocate the negative SEO, most of them will desist after that.

    That won't undo the damage done though.

    OP, if it's any comfort to you, soon EVERYONE will be on the receiving end of negative SEO campaigns.

    That sucks donkeys, OP. I would disavow and possibly reciprocate vindictively. If possible, though, I would act like everything's fine. Don't let the jerk know you're aware. Information is power.

    Follow some easy steps:

    1. Collect the links from ahrefs and list the bad ones apart, or whatever your way is to do that.

    2. Get the domain of the person you think is doing this and blast the fuck out of it with XRumer links from here for 2$ a blast...

    After a month your competitor well get tired of doing negative SEO to your website and most importantly his site will never be on top for a long long time.

    Porn links are actually the easiest to find & disavow, the problem starts when he gets smart and spams you with the same keywords you actually use!

    when disavowing, do it for whole bad domain where your link is placed. That makes it easier for you.

    Isn't it Google's policy to ignore links from bad neighborhoods now?

    Mates site has been hit with negative seo and he's been disavowing till his face turned red.

    Doesn't work. You gotta work on getting those links removed. He had the best results when he spent quite some time getting the links removed.

    You can try disavow of course but be careful bc there aren't any success stories of disavow other than one guy that recommends disavowing your whole backlin kprofile. LOL.

    The link barrage technique is nasty -- you need to build senuke X linkwheels to your site and build out more LPs and pages to the primary site and secondary sites driving traffic to your sales pages

    The link barrage is low SEO esp when you use the person's keywords on porn sites lol

    The negative SEO campaign against me started just few days ago. I still not see any message in GWT, SERP ranking is stable.
