    Negative SEO is real, but don't ever expect Google to admit it. Doing so would be corporate suicide. One of the key components an investor looks for is the company's public reputation. If Google admitted their algorithm can be utilized negatively to purposely harm an organization, the public and media would turn against them, and so will their investors. Having that said, perhaps the most effective form of negative SEO would be against large corporations, for they have the capital, clout and capability to get Google's attention much more effectively than the little noise made from us small business owners. Although I'm not an advocate of negative SEO, it could be the downfall for Google if the mainstream media informs the public and business community how its search engine is being used to destroy businesses.

    To me, this is them admitting it.

    "Google works hard to prevent other webmasters from being able to harm your ranking or have your site removed from our index."

    They say they work hard to prevent it, which means it can be done. If something can't be done you don't need to work hard to prevent it.

    Google can stop it immediately if the make a change in the algorithm to STOP passing negative value from bad links, and by NOT penalizing pages with over optimized inbound anchor text. They would prefer to allow negative SEO (and it's consequences) in order to do what they can to take down those who they feel are gaming the system.


    You just summed up the panda/penguin update in 2 sentences. Well done.

    I just got into seo about 10 months ago and now that all this nseo ***** can happen, I'm working on alternative ways to earn an income online. Building up a brand through other traffic sources, like forums, guest posting and maby occasional NON Google ppc when I can afford it.

    Hah, I HAVE to use non Google PPC because the Big G considers my pages to be "gateway pages" since I link only to amazon products. Forget I bought the product, researched the product, wrote a thoughtful review on the product...it's a gateway page. Oh well, Bing likes my money. Unfortunately, Bing PPC does not drive much traffic to my site (but then I chose the keyword phrases in G's keyword tool, so no big surprise there).

    Of course, Google doesn't want Amazon to get a piece of the pie.
