    If you are trying to beat a competitor for google rankings, could you just get thousands of spammy backlinks to his URL and then he will get deindexed by G, and then by result you will move up in the rankings?

    does this work?

    thats a shitty way to get to the top, do you want that to happen to you?

    some of the clients of mine that have penalties in google were because of negative SEO performed by competitors so it does work but let me tell you one client is trying to sue the competitor because they figured out who it is

    you play with fire and you get burned

    Short answer: Yes it will work, don't complain when someone does the same thing to you.

    Honestly, if they never did anything to you, it is a shitty and dirty way of doing business. Let's be real here though, most of the people that say Neg SEO is so bad, are probably guilty of it themselves.

    Lol it works. Its just looked down upon. Bottom line is, if it increases your businesses bottom line, do it. Just know that its possible that eventually someone may do it back to you.

    I think it is a really shitty way of doing business and there should be some standard ethics when talking
    about fellow IM'rs

    We are all working to get up on the Big G but lets not start shooting each other because all that does
    is ruin the complete industry and makes it a vicious cycle where everyone loses.

    If everyone did negative SEO on everyone else then everyone would be deindexed or not ranking and
    SEO as we know it would be not worth much. Maybe that is on purpose by Google.

    Been a target of NEG. SEO more times than you can count on 2 hands and i never did it to any of the sites in TOP 10 - Why should you? Rank again, if you site has enough authority, hell those links wont do shit to your site, i speak from knowledge, so get back on the horse and stop being an asshole like the others.
