    So I have some backlinks from a crappy anti-spam site stating that some of my pages have viruses. Those pages don't even exist on my site, so it's pure bullsh*t. I contacted him and asked him nicely to remove all links to my website, however his is not willing. Any idea/suggestion how can get those links removed besides threatening him (which I don't think will work)?

    This happened to me recently. After the 3rd polite email, I emailed him again for the 4th time and told him I will DDoS his site until he removes my link. About 5 days later, he emailed me saying he will remove my link. I just checked his site and yup my link is still gone.

    So, in short: DDoS his site until he begs you to stop.

    Don't worry about it, just disavow the link and move on. If you are working on a reconsideration request make sure you note that "he refused to remove the link" in the documentation you send over to G.

    THe problem for OP is not really the link it itself that can be disavowed but rather the kind of website that link to him. If in the link it says that OP's website has some viruses he can lose some traffic even if it is fake.

    This is probably one of the most logical responses...of course you could also send a bunch of spam links to his site in return. Sharing is caring!

    Put him into a lawsuit if you've got some free time for messing up. "Easy" as that + he 'll learn a lesson.

    This is my dream!!!

    1st take the links on his page and build a webpage on it about how his site sucks. Throw up some ads.
    2nd message him to check the links and that you appreciate him directly linking to a review page of his own site.


    or the angelic way out

    3. Claim your site is trademarked and can not use it without your permission then send him a take down notice.

    The trademark trick only works if he has ads up or has it monetized on that specific page.

    And how did this not result in a lawsuit? If OP is in the US this is extra risky.

    Initiating the use of electronic terrorism (ie, D-DOS) is never a good idea.

    However, responding to electronic terrorism (bullshit links) with electronic terrorism might be the only way to go, if the offending party doesn't play nicely.

    another option would be to explore a DMCA takedown notice if he is posting copyrighted material, ie: your website's "brand name."
