    Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this. A competitor of mine has set up some (default) wp blogs on some high pagerank domains that he bought (some even previously not relevant with our niche) and he added some backlinks to his site with the most general keyword that describes our niche as the anchor text. the content on these sites is garbage. I should note that since the creation of these backlinks he has dominated for most of tthe others keywords in our niche too ranking in the first 3 positions. Technically his on site seo is no different (even worse) than other sites. Can I report this to google as link spam? Somehow different? Has anyone done this before? Do they care? If you have relevant experience, what is the best way to inform them? Thanks for your time!

    I am ranking good already but I do not want to use any objectionable seo technique like the above. I have tested thoroughly the top 10 sites in my niche and I can say that there are better sites than his and mine is one of the top ones as far as technical seo factors, backlinks, social networks and content is concerned. However it seems that backlinks with golden keyword anchor text from high pr and trust sites is something unbeatable even if they are obviously fake... I feel this is not only unfair but bad competition too. Does anyone have relevant experience?

    There is no good and bad off site SEO. You're a criminal in the eyes of Google in any case. So, your website is as bad as the one of your competitor, and it should be reported as well.

    So what is a good competition? Waiting for the site to rank on their own? Cannot outrank them, snitch them right?

    Here is an idea.

    Write a web 2.0 about his business. Make it very flattering and superb in every way.
    Go to linkcollider.com and buy $9 worth of tokens. List the web 2.0 there and use linkcollider to give this ONLY tweets, FB shares, tumblrs and stumbles. Let it run until it has been shared out a few hundred to a thousand times.

    Send him a link to it. Do not let him know you are a competitor.


    Odds are 90% he will link to the web2.0 that you created in order to tell his readers about it. Tell him if he will link to it from his home page with a do follow link you will leave it up, because you have done this before and the people went out of business. Tell him as long as the link is live, the property will stay up, and he will benefit from any social media sharing that occurs.

    After all of this is in place:

    Place a link on this WEB2.0 home page to your website, make it do follow and make all the rest no follow.

    If it works, he will link to your web2.0, transferring his link juice to the WEB 2.0, which links to your site via do follow, passing most of his domain authority and SEO efforts into your site.

    You should try to create another website and copy the same link profile that he has. That way you keep your authority site but will be able to rank above his.
