    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.

    Can you explain me briefly?
