    Dealing with Negative SEO and the Google Penalties ( Penguin ) Incurred

    As mentioned in a previous thread I started in this forum in May 2017, my main site Online Casino Reviewer has been targeted by a crude, yet very effective Negative
    SEO
    campaign, with the home page of my site being the main recipient.

    Since Penguin went live last year, meaning it now updates in realtime, google have also changed the algorithm whereby unnatural links to a page or pages of your site, does not affect the serps of your other pages.

    This indeed has been borne out with what I am seeing. For example many of OCR's inner pages still rank and rank very well. Yet what has happened to the results of my homepage is, well, quite funky.

    The purpose of this thread then, is to document and reference what I am doing to clean up those toxic links which have been pointed to my site and the final outcome as a result.

    Instead of being downbeat and defeatist about the situation, I am now using my own personal experience as a way to 1) Generate useful content for my site and video channel. 2) Hopefully show my peers that there is a way to protect yourselves and recover your site from a Negative
    SEO
    attack.

    Thankfully, I have had a LOT of help with this project. Andy Edwards from Mad About Media has spent many hours looking at OCR's link profile.

    I have already provided an introduction in the latest OCR video blog, with the first video and page covering my 'Negative
    SEO
    Project' being added to OCR's Video Tips for Webmasters Section of the site later this week. - https://www.onlinecasinoreviewer.com...ps-webmasters/

    If any other affiliate webmasters have experienced a Negative
    SEO
    attack, please feel free to share your experiences here in this thread.

    This is interesting information. I wasn't aware someone could negSEO a single page at a time. I think I'm going to have to keep a better eye out on a couple of my main money pages rather than just the domain level links. Thanks!

    I ran across something last night that I thought was cool and could be helpful to your situation. Most importantly it's free. Website called http://www.disavowfiles.com - You can go to this site and upload your personal disavow file into a big database of other users uploaded files. Then you can look at all of your disavowed links and see how many other people have uploaded disavow files with those same sites in it. It can help you identify sites that might be OK and those that are really bad and need closer attention to. There's some other cool data in there too.

    Hope that helps.

    Link Research Tools ( linkresearchtools.com ) is arguably the best software you can use to keep an eye on your 'toxic' backlink profile - However, it is not cheap, but again you get what you paid for.

    Will be recording soon an update on this. Unfortunately I got sidetracked with the shenanigans with the Club World / Affiliate Edge Group.

    Penguin has evolved so as instead of the entire site being hammered due to toxic links, only the page receiving the toxic links gets smashed. This
    IMO
    is actually a good move on google's part. Unfortunately they still haven't managed to stop people using negative
    seo
    and I doubt they will ever be able to. Despite what comes out of the googleplex to the contrary.
