    You're playing with fire, period. You shouldn't do it, refrain from speaking about it or asking how to do it. If you have ever been the victim to negative SEO you know exactly how it feels and will agree when I say don't even bother with it. Your main priority should be making your campaign stronger to beat out the competition, regardless of what they are trying to utilize for their gains. Keep your ethics clean, and in the end you'll always come out ahead. Those who intend to cause harm or purposely try to destruct others hard work need to reconsider exactly what they are doing. Having a niche war is not fun guys.

    Why not do positive SEO on our sites and get them ranked instead of destroying others? I'll tell you why but there are always debates on both sides. Personally I don't like sticking my nose into other people's business.

    That's what I am implying here, or trying to at least. I think we should all focus on our own campaigns, rather than resorting to destroying the hard work of others.

    New phase for me amongst many things in SEO ATM But i googled and found a naughty site offering Negative SEO and their slogan was "Blast your competitors out of the SERPs with Negative SEO" I have recently got into SEO due to the fact i am a Online trader and just finished developing a eCommerce site and couldn't afford to pay a company for SEO services so have decided to teach myself.... My point is being a small business to think someone could sabotage my sites ranking through foul play makes me a little sick... I couldn't with any sound conscience do this to a company, this for me is beyond the pale. cheers

    I don't believe in Karma. I do however think that if anyone is stupid and spineless enough to attempt neg SEO, they are stupid enough to get caught and given just what they deserve.

    Most people that engage in negative SEO do so because they lack the knowledge to actually rank sites properly.

    However, when they engage in negative SEO and blast away some competitors their site is still crap and they still don't reach the money spots.

    So basically they have just ruined a perfectly good niche just because of their inferior minds.

    Whilst this is going on Google is just laughing to the bank as it is turning more people to PPC.

    Remember people, it is Google Vs SEOers. Don't let Google win...

    Ignorance and arrogance is what it boils down to, thing is though they self destruct themselves while taking out others.
