    Google Once Again Confirms That Negative SEO Exists



    For those of you that missed it, over at Webmaster Tools FAQ Page in the land of Google there is a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that goes:

    Can competitors harm ranking?

    The answer from Google, a couple of years ago was:

    There?s nothing a competitor can do to harm your ranking or have your site removed from our index


    Then, after Panda and the launch of the Disavow Tool from Google, when everybody started talking about negative SEO and it became something of a mainstream news, Google changed the answer to the above question to:

    There's almost nothing a competitor can do to harm your ranking or have your site removed from our index


    And yet, once again, and this time in a more direct way, Google has updated the answer on 27th of May 2013. Here is the new answer:

    Google works hard to prevent other webmasters from being able to harm your ranking or have your site removed from our index. If you're concerned about another site linking to yours, we suggest contacting the webmaster of the site in question. Google aggregates and organizes information published on the web; we don't control the content of these pages.




    That is a double admission. First, that negative SEO is now a widespread problem Google knows it. What is more worrying though, is the second part of the anwer where Google simply states that "We cant do anything about it, you are on your own, try and contact the competitors and make them stop"

    Nice one Google, really nice one!
