    what are some ways to hurt your competitors rankings? one thing that comes to mind is spamming them with scrapebox/xrumer links with "porn" as the anchor text. that would probably cause them to dance a lot

    Outrank basically, if you know what methods they are using, use different ones.

    Dito, work on your rankings because ultimately you'll help their site. Some member here did a case study on this. They spammed a competitor and they dropped out of top 100, then they came back as #1 and stuck there.

    You can't drop competitors because Google's algorithm doesn't work like that.

    They base it all on onpage seo, so if your competitor is linking to porn, warez, illegal stuff, etc. or they are tag, keyword, etc. stuffing, then they'll get their rankings lowered automatically.

    You should focus more on building backlinks for your own site, and not trying to damage your competitors.

    You need the correct mindset if you want to succeed.

    Here's what a large Xrumer blast will do.

    First you need your competitors site to be fairly new, which its probably not.

    Then you need a huge blast that will cost a lot of money or time depending if your outsourcing or not.

    So you do a large blast, lets say you actually do get the site sandboxed. You wait 2-4 months or whatever, then your competitors site is out of sandbox and on the top of search engines. Was it really worth it?

    If the site is seasoned and aged, Google may dismiss the links and not count them at all. So you've spent time and money and nothing to show for it.

    Why not learn how to utilize better seo than wasting precious time and energy learning how to bring down competitors... i know it is just business and all, but you will be better off in the long run learning superior seo skills than trying to beat everyone else down... just saying, thats all ya know. :cool:

    You will probably get your IP blacklisted if you do that yourself. It is tempting to go ahead and force your competitors on their knees but how will you feel when someone else comes along and they do the same to you? Think about it... What would you rather do, put in the hard yards and get rewarded with a highly ranking moneymaking site, or spend all your time trying to blacklist someone elses site while you are making nothing from it?
