    There is a negative influence with negative SEO. A quick Google search would have tell you what it is but basically it spamming your competitors to make him tank.

    Reverse SEO is the analysis of your competitors SEO in order to gain informations on how he ranked, what kind of things he did, etc... and trying to replicate and beat him at his own game

    Negative seo is on the negative side of things, and reverse is in the positive. Do your own research for further details, but no, they arent both the same.

    Negative SEO attacks can come in a few forms. Generally, negative SEO refers to when one website buys links and points them at a competitor's website in an effort to torpedo their rankings. Other instances of negative SEO have included such tactics as hacking a website to inflict some sort of malicious damage on a website, review bombing (pointing a large number of 5-star reviews at a business so it appears they paid for them), or simply by reporting another website's "black hat" tactics to Google.
