    Hi all,

    My niche competitor and I have a common "friend" and my ads start to have a 4x more click with the conversion stays the same as before. Our common friend show me a sms that my competitor send to all his friends that force them to click in my ads as a google "expirement" Is there a way to report this to google ? I have the screen shot of the sms.

    Thank you all

    Report to google, if they can correlate the text with data at their end I'm sure they will do something about it.

    Tell him you can take a worse kind of revenge and blow his sites (present and future) out of the serps forever if he persists in this. Then do it if he doesn't stop immediately. No sympathies necessary for such a lowlife competitor.

    Such a dick move. I would suggest calling Google & explaining the situation. I'm sure something like this has happened in the past. Hit him with some negative SEO, payback is sweet when deserved.
