    Hey all..

    OK I have a ton of videos on Youtube and for the last few years have been dominating. One of my videos (PR5) was recently negative seo'd. Viagra, Porn, Child, etc... Is there any way to disavow links to youtube videos?? Or I just move on? Please let me know. I'm pissed.

    I had a competitor or try and neg seo a video about a year ago (with exact anchor) so not sure if its still relevant. I took a bit of a hit in the Google ranking, but it came back after about a month even better than it did previous.

    I think this will help long term if anything since videos are pretty strong against that sort of thing, but if not there's not much you can do unfortunately. Has any movement happened yet or you're just worried?

    Major movement. Went from page 1 to page 6 for the last 3 months. I didn't even think to check for negative seo 3 months ago. What do you think? Send some GSA links to dilute? Also build more links?

    Diluting or more links won't help, especially if it's crap links like the ones built by GSA. The only thing that really helps against negative SEO is disavowing and that's not possible with third party domains.

    Man that makes no sense. The links they shot at my site are crap built by GSA and blog comments. You are thinking the wrong way here. He certainly didn't send 10000 pbn links at my vids.. LOL.. Diluting and Tons of quality PBN links are my only options here as well as potentially embeds with all my cloaking sites.

    Have you actually seen a downward movement? Usually Youtube videos are pretty resilient.

    Youtubes are one of the most popular parasites, I highly doubt the Neg SEO has had a significant affect.

    Serious negative movement for a solid 2 months after they did it. Social signals and diluting the links with new has gotten my rankings back.

    So it's been 3 days since you posted this and you think Social Signals + Dilution of links have fixed it?

    Honestly, it could have just been bouncing after the spam.
