    What does it mean to you?

    Is it good or bad?

    Are some making money from it?

    How do you defend against it?

    I think its a little messed up because you can really mess with people. the new googel tool can help to fight against it. Its not good or bad, its how it is used. I personally think google has gone a little over the top but it works because I am not that interested in SEO anymore.

    Negative SEO has always existed, indexing via proxy "proxy hacking" has been around for years. Switching off a server of a competitor (bit harder than it was but still pretty easy after a half hour google search) then indexing the 404 has been around as long as I can think.

    I think at some point, somone wrote about it, everyone read it and thought "easy money" so more people wrote about it.


    I have run a few tests on negative SEO, xrumer blasts of bad keywords direct to my own test site, even single anchor blasts on platforms found via pharma scrapes of spammed platforms.

    Either I am the shitest practitioner of what people think of as this new version of nagative seo or, its just not worth worying about.

    Am I making money out of it? Yes but only in the same way as I learn as much as I can which makes me a good conultant.

    I am more scared of the boogyman.
