    For trying to extort money from GE & others for reverse negative SEO work...

    Did anyone else see this story? Your thoughts?

    I cannot post links yet - but you can see the original story today over at Search Engine Land.

    I wouldn't even call that blackhat, that's straight up fraud and criminal. He seriously got what he deserved.

    The title is misleading by saying a SEO went to jail. An online fraudster went to jail is what you should say.

    Lol, that's a paradox for you. Reverse negative SEO would mean he did positive seo....

    Yeah he was sent to prison for extortion, not for SEO. I love it how the click bait titles make it look like black hat SEO somehow got him in trouble.

    What do you mean by negative SEO?
    Can you explain me briefly?
