    So there is a lot of talk going around that with the recent updates by Google the emphasis will switch from positive SEO to promote your site to Negative SEO to destroy your competitors - No one really knows if Negative SEO is now a reality, my personal opinion is that it could work on a site that has very little authority and has gained its position from using poor quality backlinks with poor anchor text diversity. But hey what do I know, we all have opinions!

    What we need to see is an experiment conducted by someone who knows what they are doing, guess what - I found one, take a look here http://trafficplanet.com/topic/2369-case-study-negative-seo-results/.

    This one is going to be fun to watch :)
