i have always thought, well believed, that rather than Penalize a site for bad BACKLINKS they just discounted them. Just felt this had to stay this way due to negative seo wars. i just got an email from BHW for a sales/service thread. talking about how sites are being banned for backlinking and such. i know a lot of people believe in the "dont play dirty, out smart them/out work them" however, if you are the only one not cheating you WILL lose. its like trying to become a pro athlete. you maybe talented but when average joe is pumping juice and taking your spot... what are you to do?? So here we are. Apparently G has opened the door for a sniper war and narcing war. Has anyone taken out a competitor yet?? i mean, THIS IS BLACK HAT FORUM, i dont judge. you have to do what you have to do. i just think that there are A LOT of desperate people right now.. (im not one of them, i dont have sites ranking, however i am pissy at how they are handling this and how people are pushing this) i remember a couple years ago on here people would TRY LIKE HELL to get their sites banned or dumped with XR and SB but they actually would end up ranking!! lol. anyways, im curious to the feedback ya'll have on neg seo and experiences...... do share. and for some reason i cant use my effin enter key!
