    Hi guys, tbh i don't know to much about seo yet but im learning..

    on one of my sites, i keep getting backlinks from this site: http://review-worldmarketings.com/ and other sites that look identical.. the sites look a bit spammy and all they seem to do is post thumbnails of other websites articles..

    is this what the kids call neg SEO? or does the author actually like my content? i'm a bit worried as 8 out of my 14 backlinks are from these sites.

    If you want to lose those links Disavow them using Google Webmaster Tools but that's a very low number.
    If they climb rapidly with pure spammy links then you might be getting hit.

    If you haven't been building links then the best thing you can do for yourself is to disavow them and remain safe.

    That looks like a scraper site/autoblog. They are scraping your site and posting it for content.
    It will be an issue if they are getting indexed before you.
    You can disavow the links and try to block them.
    Alternatively you could report them or just request that they stop.
