My domain is being spammed and linked by an IP Address. What to do?

    I just checked my Webmaster tools today and saw that I had 7000 incoming links on Webmasters tools. It was a shock to me because before that I had like 500-600 links only.

    When I checked the domain it was an IP address - like 180.34.23.1 (example) as I don't want to reveal my niche in public. This domain had linked to me over 6500 times. Every page on my site was spammed with over 500 links and links were like "sex tape of xx" "real life hot fuck" and all that spammy shit.

    Now, I am really confused about what should I do and how can I prevent this from again.

    My first action will be to disavow the links but I have never used this tool before. Should I just use the domain (IP Address) and disavow it as a whole? Or should I download each and every link manually and create a list of 7000 URL's and then disavow?

    My ranking dropped from #6 to #20 and this has pissed me off but this is the nature of SEO, I guess.

    Please help me out in dealing with this as I have no prior experience in dealing with spam like this.

    Thank you.

    It look like a competitor is trying to take you down with neg SEO .You can't really do anything about it anybody can throw crappy links at your site without a trace.Disavow the links once found.

    I had similar issue happened to one of my websites. I just disavow spam domains (not individual links) and build few good quality pbn links and ranking restored after couple weeks

    Sorry to hear that. Neil Patel has 764 backlinks with the anchor as Milf Phone Sex lol I wouldn't do it too my competitors but how are people doing that to spam their competitors. Neil doesn't look like his website is affected by it.

    My site got bad links and dropped in rankings so hard. I disavowed the links, 3 weeks later my rankings returned back exactly as before.

    No mate,

    When I click on the link it takes me to my OWN site and its like they are using the "search" function although it's disabled on my website and searching for queries like - "sex video of xx" and shit like that. So in the end the incoming links on my webmasters shows - IP Address of my own website/search/ "query"
    When I click on it, it takes me to my own fucking site and it says "no matching content could be found" this is some next level shit happening to my website.

    Anyone has ever dealt with spam like this?

    I am really confused which links should I disavow? After all the IP address which shows as a link is IP address of my OWN site.. I am hoping this doesn't lead to me fucking my own site up somehow
