 Negative SEO is basically the exact opposite of search engine optimization. Meaning the intent is to drive search rankings into the toilet instead of increasing search visibility in Google.

Negative SEO means "short term happyness".. By doing negative things, what you think how long you will survive?

The only thing that will let you through is your hardwork and smart work.. Just build slow and steady, else search engines are ready for putting penalties.

thanks

Negative SEO can refer website hаcking. From removing content or even deleting your site entirely, to changing the robots.txt file to tell search engines to stop crawling it. It can also be about damaging your reputation, perhaps through fake social media accounts set up to specifically badmouth your company.

Very interesting! How much effort do you think it would take to execute a negative SEO campaign like this? One would have to have a spider/crawler, or slumberous spiders/crawlers, and then there's the bot.

It would be really scary if this was true. I'm surprised that with all of the other ranking factors in the algo that this would have that much weight since it apparently is so easy to influence by one person.
