    I know for a fact that this isn't new..

    It even says so in that article..lol

    Negative SEO has actually worked for several years now, but in the past it was far more difficult and expensive.
    I offer vBulletin Services (5+ years experience & over 600+ documented clients)
    I help run a successful Admin Forum and play around on a vBulletin Connect setup.

    Exactly what I was thinking. It's been around forever, it just gained a new degree of effectiveness.

    I've thought for a long time that some of the idiocy you see from outsourced "linkbuilding" campaigns was so detrimental to the client's site that the money would be much better spent paying the same band of monkeys to "promote" your competitor's site. Pretty ruthless, but it'd work.

    I suspect in the long run the algo will be altered to ignore such linkbuilding rather than penalize it. That'd eliminate the effectiveness of that negative SEO tactic.

    This is stupid method that has been going on for so long. The People offering these negative services are like drug dealers who sell to children. We should form a community on IM forum to bring down these bastards who make a living from misery

    That's the way the world is. Watch this Video: Four-year-old children' smoking on train in China. They probably on their way to their day job making sneakers.
