As you all know, negative SEO is not new, in fact, Google has said it is rare but possible since 2007. Sites as large as Expedia may have suffered from it and Google had to reword their documentation on the topic.
But now that we have SEOs threatening clients with negative SEO, it is more of a concern out there.
WebmasterWorld administrator, Engine, said on WebmasterWorld that recently, "negative SEO is now much easier to do now than it was prior to google's latest updates."
The scary part, most SEOs agree with him. Another SEO said "Yes, absolutely." And others agreed as well, "It is absolutely easier now for negative seo campaigns."
Of course, this is a huge concern for anyone with an online business. Google may shrug it under the carpet, but this is a concern that Google needs to address.
Do you think negative SEO is easier or harder? Take our poll:
