    I have a client who was nailed by a competitor with a few paid articles against them on some powerful sites. We all know as Matt Cunts always says that "Content is King", but now I need to drop this article from the top spot in the SERP. Sure, I could write 100 blogs and build organic links and crawl up the ladder for the next few years and pray that Google's advertizing algorithms don't change in the process of their profiteering. However, I am thinking Black Hat, because after all this is Black Hat World. Does anyone have any opinions on link blasting a single page? We are talking 100-200k of the worst links known to man. The sites are strong and I could not imagine that a million links would even harm them in any way and that is in not my goal, but does link spamming a single article actually work with dropping them out of the SERP? Has anyone ever experimented with this or have any other ideas that actually work?

    Thanks for ideas and opinions! :cool:

    Negative SEO is not the way to go. Instead, build your own properties or use parasite pages and outrank the defamatory articles using blackhat techniques.

    Parasite pages are also what I was thinking, but wanted to get some feedback and ideas. Thanks

    Pick some high authority parasites and web2.0s that enjoy google affinity and rank them for your keywords.

    Youtube, Storify, Tumblr or some of my faves, and working really well right now. Linkedin, a good Yelp page, also work well.

    I'd love to see a list though.

    I would go the parasite route too, without a doubt. Then have ShakeitOut hammer it with some spam.

    This doesn't work anyway, it's too unnatural and Google recognizes the sites and the patterns. Think hundreds, not hundreds of thousands.
