    I was just looking at one of my competitors backlinks and hes ranking number 1 for every keyword practically but I have noticed he has a lot of backlinks with the anchors 'porn' 'sex' 'nude' etc.

    Is someone performing neg seo on them? If so do you think this is contributing them to being number 1 as google hasn't done anything negative to them rather it's positive?

    Two possibilities:
    1) He has very strong High Quality backlinks as well and the bad ones can`t affect the site
    2) He will be penalized soon

    I am watching one of my competitors for the same reasons right now. Recently someone has spammed them with thousands of "casino" related keywords. They have not tanked yet, and it looks like someone has been spamming them for weeks. I hate seeing this, because I know what is in store for me when I rank...

    Exactly! The weird thing about this site is that it only starting ranking after the update. Which kind of defeats the object of the update lol

    Most of those links might be created now and thus it is not affecting the site. Also, if the ranking site is authority one with strong backlinks structure with great on page seo then affective that site needs thousands of backlinks.

    Also, they might immediately added those to disavow tool as well.

    Note to all negative seo doers: Negative seo is really a bad thing, concentrate on getting your site to rank, rather than waiting for some one to fall. Karma is there.

    I've seen sites with swear words for anchors blasted at them and they didn't fall backwards. I think in some cases where it's plainly obvious that it's neg SEO, Google can discount those kinds of links but if it was a newish site using badly spun text that has the keywords in it and too many anchors with exact match keywords, they could fall back.
