Time after time, Google has said spam links can't hurt you. Google said it a bunch of times, competitors can't hurt you, but most SEOs do not believe that. So I decided to run a new poll asking Can Spam Links By Competitors Hurt You In Google?
I wanted to share those results with you.
We had a nice number of responses, 284 to be exact and most said - spam links from competitors can hurt you.
- 73% said Yes, Spam Links By Competitors Can Hurt You In Google
- 25% said No, Spam Links By Competitors Can't Hurt You In Google
There were seven "other" open end responses, nothing really all that interesting to share.
Forum discussion continued at Google Webmaster Help.
