    Some idiot is scrapeboxing me and building "backlinks" to my website, you might say "mmm links thats good huh?" Well yeah but from the sites he's linking from it aint good :/ Damn fuc*** is building backlinks from hacking websites and bad neighborhoods. I found out about this because someone else emailed me about it and asked me if i knew who was doing this because someone did it to his website aswell. Lousy competitior or whatever it is..

    so why are you so angry ?
    this is a good SEO technique , build the same backlinks as the nr #1 spot has and build a few more and outrank them
    so just build more backlinks , or build a few edu or gov , there are really good , this should keep you nr 1

    Hah.. hope it wasn't someone from BHW. The "scrapebox your competitors to death" method has been circulating here, but there's no proof that it works, at least I haven't seen any.

    G probably won't count many of those links, but you may even get a bit of juice. I don't think it'll work against you, unless you're site is really new.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Why would your clients look at the quality of your backlinks? :confused:

    What i'm "afraid" of is that if he creates tons of backlinks from malware websites and such google will lower my rankings since sites containing viruses is linking to me

    G knows you have no power over where someone puts your links, they're on record saying you're fine. Although I am hesitant about whether I believe that applies to brand new sites.

    As long as your on-page is legit, and you have your own higher quality backlinks, I think you'll be good.

    But definitely come back and report if your rankings were affected. I bet they go up a bit.

    Google knows that you don't own the Internet and can't control what other people do on their own sites.

    Heck, I'd love it if someone started scrapeboxing any of my sites... would sure save me a lot of work

    I'm allready at 1 position on several good keywords, i would prefere to handle my SEO on my own instead of someone building backlinks for me, especially when he does it from shitty sites ^^

    So what? You could wake up tomorrow and see you are now #145. Happens all the time.

    Google is not static, it updates every day and if you're just enjoying your rankings while your competitors are out there working their asses off you could go down in an instant.

    He's not commenting on my site, he's commenting on other blogs with bogus comments and such.

    How many WP sites with akismet can he post my link on until my url gets banned by akismet ?

    If you are worried that those bad backlinks could affect your ranking, just build more quality links to your site.

    Quality links=links from a High PR domain (even on a internal page with PR n/a, as long as the domain have a good PR ie PR 4+).

    He means the person is using scrapebox, but submitting with his URL rather than their own, not posting on his site.

    If that's possible, wouldn't everyone utilize Scrapebox for that?

    Maybe not, in many countries, excluding USA the phone company nickel and dimes you for bandwidth. In australia they nickel and dime the shit out of every person. You can end up paying 100 bucks a month for a decent amount of bandwidth. Nothing is unlimited here, not like in the USA 49.95 p/m unlimited usage therefore many wont bother using scrapebox to try to take down their competitor, well at least i wont because it will cost me money.
