What Is Negative SEO?

Negative SEO refers to the means of using black hat and unhealthy techniques to ruin a competitor’s rankings in search engines. Negative SEO attacks can come in different forms:

• Hacking your website

• Building hundreds of spammy links to your website

• Stealing your content and posting it all over the internet

• Pointing links to your website using the wrong keywords like Viagra, and many others

• Making fake social profiles and ruining your personality online

• Removing the best backlinks your website has


Is Negative SEO A Threat?

Yes, there’s no doubt about that. Negative SEO is real, and so many websites have had to deal with this problem. Preventing it is much easier than fixing it
