    Hey everyone,

    Lately I have seen allot of "How to do negative SEO" and all of that stuff. First of all if you clicked on this hoping it was a
    guide to negative SEO then turn away now and learn how to rank a website instead of crumbling someone else's hard work.

    You have what I call now 3 types of SEO strategies.

    BlackHat
    WhiteHat
    AssHat

    You guessed it...Negative SEO is someone wearing an ass hat going around and trolling in a technical means. You know
    the best way to get revenge or gain success is focusing your energy on living well and not focusing it on destroying someone else.
    Really Negative SEO is not the Black Hat World community spirit! Why? Because people come here to help each other in business
    and internet marketing. Just so happens SEO is a tool utilized within these contexts. I mean guys you negative seo a site it could very
    well be a great/needed source of income for a fellow BHW member. Get a life or a professional SEO service and leave negative SEO
    alone. It seems the shit does not even work well and if so its temporary.

    Honestly it seems negative seo does not get much respect around here and I hope that trend continues...

    Cheers,
    Unclemike

    Agreed 1,000,000% People need to focus more on their own sites, then worrying about how they can destroy a site whose owner probably spent countless days and nights working hard to get where they are. Hard work will always prevail over fraud in the end. Before I started doing Im (and even times between), I worked 16-20 hours a day. Now I work 16-20 hours a day on IM :)

    Attacking a competitors site is a NO NO!

    Procrastination is the thief of time and the grave of opportunity...

    Smart folks rid their own garden of weeds and by doing so flowers will bloom

    There is a crucial point missing. People have different standards, ethics and morals. There are some assholes that will do anything to get to the top. Some will do it for revenge. Others for fun.

    Neg seo exist because of these people and will continue to exist. There ain't no stopping human nature.

    I won't even bother neg seoing the facker that sent me porn and viagra links. When I catch him, I'll burn his facking house down.

    I also dont really get people asking how to do negative seo,

    First, you are doing negative SEO to your competitor but you can't do SEO for your site.

    Second, you are just wasting your money and effort, just use your money and effort to improve your site.

    Third, seriously. I saw some sites that gets more traffic rather than the site on the #1 position. You just need to put quality description and helpful article to your site.

    If one site pop out out of nowhere to #1 position. Then you need to revisit your SEO Plan. There are always room for improvement.

    Negative SEO should not be practised by any SEO'ers. There is a line for SEO, black hat and white hat seo sits under the line but negative seo is crossing this line by far. Any discussions on negative seo should be banned and threads should automatically be deleted.

    The reason I chose bhw over other IM forums was because of its professionalism, and let's face it negative seo is absolutely a disgrace. If you do choose to practice these techniques then it's up to you but honestly it shows that you are weak and lazy.

    FACT: Did you know that performing negative seo can actually benefit your competition as apposed to bringing then down the rankings no matter how disgusting the links you blast are? Think of that before you gamble on thinking about doing negative seo.

    Fuck them negative SEO retards. So what? You going to hit one site of mine? Go ahead..It's obvious I'm ranking higher than you for a reason and you don't have the balls to outrank me like a man.... and who knows maybe I top other keywords as well and I don't care that much of you manage to take me down on this one. If the niche is profitable I will come back with a post on some authority site where your negative SEO campaigns won't work. Cya!

    Bottom Line:
    Clients hear about Negative SEO and pay firms to do it.
    The firm makes money. Ethics isn't an issue here,
    money is. If someone pays me to do something using unethical means to boost someone, it isn't much different from them paying me money to use unethical means to drop someone.

    I don't think the average IM'er is going to turn down a 15K deal.

    If I offered you 15k to rape my dog would you do it?? Didn't think so... and why's that? Morals, why do you think it's right to rape someones hard work but not okay to rape my dog? Ask yourself this, you spend 2 - 3 months working 16 hours a day trying to rank for a keyword with a high traffic count. You finally hit spot 1, your adsense balance explodes from $1 - $2 a day to $100 a day! You're sitting there absoluty buzzing! You fill on top of the world, so proud that you beat the other 20,000,000 sites that are competing for it! That's how most people fill when they hit spot 1.... Now imagine I come along and blast your site out of the serps! I mean I send 10k backlinks from junk, porn, spam sites, I start sending fake traffic from traffic junky and clickbomb your adsense!

    Your site is no where to be seen, that 1k you have in your adsense is gonna disapear when the ban hammer comes down for the click bombing.. I sit hear laughing and smileing thinking I'm king because I just raped all that work you put into it.. Now tell me how you fill.. The morals are just completly wrong! I'm just starting out with seo and google. If.. No WHEN! I get to number 1 if someone neg seo'd my site I would make it my life mission to hunt down every site they have and I'd personally head over to hackforums and hire some free lancer to ruin your sites! Not hateing on you bro! Just trying to make you see how bad it is and how it could make you fill if the same happened to you :)

    Had this done to one of my smaller sites with Russian porn links. Don't have a clue why, just an ordinary site certainly not making money or threatening to. One of those time where inspiration trikes, you decide on a domain name on impulse, do some quick research, throw up a dozen pages, then think "What the hell was I thinking.... " deals.

    There at the end I was getting more traffic from the images than from the keywords.

    I just let it burn and expire.

    This is the reason why I would not entertain neg seo, but by all means i'd like competitors to do the same, they just be helping me with free links, only idiot who has no clue on implementing seo would go to as low to do neg seo.

    I like the fact that I register a domain, build content, do the seo, and rank page 1 within 2-3 month and giving the other competitors a middle fingers showing how seo is done, that's the greatest achievement in my book.

    Instead of doing that, why not clean up his backlink profile for him? I've done that for several competitors and their sites dropped.
    Was it negative SEO? No.
    Did I blast him with crappy links? No.
    I simply fixed their backlink profile because they were buying links.
    If you fix their backlink profile and continue to build your own, you begin to achieve actual ranking, not inflated ranking.

    Inflated ranking is when someone builds tons of links through programs, makes them all tiered, gets indexed, and those links die off, either by having accounts shut down or by links being removed AFTER the search engines have indexed them.

    So then you have a bunch of sites in the SERPs that built links, then those links got removed, but the search engines haven't gone back to re-index the sites that are linking to the main site. So you make the search engines find those links again, and spider them. If they don't exist anymore, the site drops.

    You're not negative SEO'ing, you're making the search results true again instead of the mess you have in competitive verticals.

    It's not negative SEO if you're cleaning house. :pirate:
