Google’s stance on negative SEO has changed as the years progressed, formerly expressing there is “practically nothing a contender can do to damage your positioning or have your webpage expelled from our record,” to now colloquialism “Google endeavors to keep different webmasters from having the capacity to mischief your positioning or have your website expelled from our list.”
We sent these negative SEO blackmail messages to Google and Google reacted that they have “examined” the cases. They included that it is “misty how trustworthy this danger truly is.” Google let us know their “calculations are intended to keep these sorts of exercises from bringing on issues for webmasters.”
Be that as it may on the off chance that you are worried about particular connections, “you can additionally decide to utilize the deny instrument,” Google let us know. Moreover, Google is prescribing you “report coercion to law authorization,” despite the fact that that doesn’t benefit much if the email originates from nations law implementation has no influence over. Be that as it may in the event that it is gotten on Gmail, Google requests that you report it at https://support.google.com/mail/contact/misuse.
Truth is, negative SEO coercion is not new. I reported about instances of this back in January yet this particular email is going out to a lot of people, numerous webmasters and webpage managers.
On the off chance that you are concerned, yes, utilize the repudiate apparatus. In any case make a point to keep an eye on your latest connections in Google Webmaster Tools and after that deny any new connections that surface that worry you. In the event that you do that, these gentlemen will have some major snags harming your site.
The general concern is that with the Penguin calculation and all the manual activities around connection punishments, Seos and webmasters feel it is less demanding than at any other time in recent memory to perform negative SEO on a webpage. This observation is an issue in an officially ‘dark looked at’ industry.
