It always ensures people are on the edge of seats when the beginning of a session comes with disclaimer
- THIS IS ILLEGAL
So read on but remeber you have been warned….
For negative SEO to succeed you need the following:
3. The Community
Negative SEO against your site can be very hard to stop, most of the time you can’t. Legally you can’t stop it so if you do act to stop it will have to be illegally.
If you experience negative press in SERPs – create new content and add positive reviews and optimise to make sure it ranks above
Best Way to Counter:
We have so much power. We have the ability influence Google suggest andGoogle instant. Once you can control this you can use scare words to put prospective customers off your competition.

Some methodsyou can use for negative SEO:
Doesn’t work as often
Only do this if you have a nice suit for court
If you are into negative SEO but didnt fancy going to court then you can always mess with in house team of your competitor (stops their time working on site – “don’t always want to kill enemy, just wound them” as Fantomaster joyfully states)
Your own company can do negative SEO for you. Not just competitors.
If you pay peanuts you are going to get monkeys.
Audit your own SEO company
People in suits will tell you anything, don’t always listen
Don’t just build shitty links – mix n match
