Negative SEO attacks can come in a few forms. Generally, negative SEO refers to when one website buys links and points them at a competitor’s website in an effort to torpedo their rankings. Other instances of negative SEO have included such tactics as hacking a website to inflict some sort of malicious damage on a website, review bombing (pointing a large number of 5-star reviews at a business so it appears they paid for them), or simply by reporting another website’s “black hat” tactics to Google.

Since external links are more or less beyond the control of the site owner, it would seem competitors could very easily improve their search rankings by using tactics to negatively impact their competitors.

The reality of the situation is... this is only partially true. You can do things to protect your website. Before you get too worried about a competitor targeting your site to harm your rankings using negative SEO tactics, understand that:

It’s generally agreed that a site with strong domain authority is less susceptible to negative SEO tactics.
It’s very risky for a business to engage in a negative SEO campaign. Most legitimate businesses won’t take the gamble.
Google has systems in place to review sites that might be affected, understanding the process can mean a swift recovery if something were to happen.
It’s extremely important to monitor SEO factors that can easily be manipulated by competitors such as backlinks and reviews.

Negative SEO Tactics

Below are some notes on tactics that were part of what was considered to be a successful negative SEO campaign.

Paid linking: If thousands of links get pointed to your site there is a reasonable chance it will most likely get on the radar of Google. Work with Google, change your site to comply within their guidelines the best you can, and submit a reconsideration request containing details on links you have no control over.
Stealing content before it can get indexed: This is an attempt to copy a site’s content to make it look like the original site is actually duplicating it. You can prevent this from being an effective tactic by maintaining an updated sitemap and consistently re-submitting when new content is published. The use of an absolute rel=canonical tag on pages can help establish your site as the authority when content is getting scraped by a third party. A great way to identify if your site is getting scraped and duplicated is by performing a Google search containing a a sentence from your webpage within quotes.

Most people know about SEO, search engine optimization, as a means to get more visitors to your site. However, it has an evil twin, negative SEO. Where normal SEO practices are about finding a target audience and showing them relevant content, negative SEO is about abusing SEO to create bad associations, or deceive visitors. This can be as simple as a bad joke like, associating politicians with the insults when people search for them, to actual serious harm to websites and businesses. For example, if a shady group were to get the highest search results for a bank they could mislead visitors into entering their account information on a fake website. There are a lot of negative SEO techniques as well as potential solutions to take when being targeted.

Thanks henrycw, for sharing the useful information, i totally agree with you, In negative seo, people use black hat tactics to rank high in the serp, and they usually achieve their target in short time, but after few weeks google updates it's algo and sends panda or penguin type updates to erase such low quality websites which were coming on 1st page, so in my opinion black hat seo works, but it has major drawbacks, your site can be invisible from first pages any time, if google bot notice that you are building low quality links quite rapidly... So don't over do seo, let the things happen in the natural way, it is all what google wants....

We say it is Reverse SEO that introduces the task of making Reputation over web by removing Negative Links .If your business have negative links over Google Search results this may harms your image over web and down market value .One best method to remove those negative links are to-generate powerful positive links and give them command or support to get replaced over negative or say they come in ranking negatives automatically push down.

nagative means black hat seo... as people said...

we can use, untile & unless we are not been caught.
when we caught, we can see our position out of box.

so we should try to avoid & do white hat seo that will only help for long time.
