Google Answers Questions About The New Idea Of Negative SEO

Is Negative SEO 
A Concern?

If you were, probably rightly, worried about all the talk of the new “Negative SEO” from the standpoint that it could be used as an attack weapon against your site… 

Google’s SEO Pro, Matt Cutts, has answered a lot of the questions, intentions, and concerns about Negative SEO. 

This is really good to know!

Whew, thanks Matt for the sigh of relief!

There’s always going to be hackers, scammers, and other nefarious sort that will attempt to exploit things… but it’s good to know that Google has it’s finger on the pulse of preventing abuse. 

Can you just imagine the look on some scammers face if they tried to attack a site and ended up benefiting it! LOL

Does this make you feel safer about your site’s SEO?

Hey Kim,
I like the disavow sites, and ignore all links from a domain.
Like Matt pointed out, it probably wouldn’t effect a small site like mine..but ya just never know!

I’m glad that Google is addressing negative SEO. It is a serious problem. There are companies out there who have a department dedicated to negative “SEO-ing” the competition.

Hi Kim, I’m not sure if I feel safer, in regards to SEO it changes so much I’ve lost all interest in even trying to keep up. If we all had this attitude it would require Google to work around us but sadly that’s not how it is,
