    A competitor of mine 3 days ago started 301'in 6 sites to mine full of spam, (payday loans, tramadol etc).

    Is there any way to block there sites via .htaccess or something ?

    I have contacted Google webmaster tools and also sent these links to disavow "domain:"

    Anything else i can do ?


    Thanks

    yeah 301 can be tricky, i recently slapped a site because i was redirecting other sites via 301 and when i redirected them elsewhere it slapped it sadly enough i had to switch to using 302 to not pass the link juice. but just block with htaccess it should be fine, don't bother with disavow as it's been proven that it doesn't help im pretty sure for anyone and just feeds google info on spammers seo methods.

    but hey, this is my opinion and i could be wrong.

    What a pain. I have yet to have anything like this happen but it sucks that google has it setup for any site to be vulnerable.
