6 types of negative SEO to watch out for

I only recently came up on this site by doing a Google search and it was apparent that I too had a lot to learn about good or bad SEO.

Below is an quote from the first few lines on that site for you to consider before going there to read more - "

"The threat of negative SEO is remote but daunting. How easy is it to for a competitor to ruin your rankings, and how do you protect your site? But before we start, let’s make sure we’re clear on what negative SEO is, and what it definitely isn’t.

Negative SEO is a set of activities aimed at lowering a competitor’s rankings in search results. These activities are more often off-page (e.g., building unnatural links to the site or scraping and reposting its content); but in some cases, they may also involve hacking the site and modifying its content."

It takes a lot of work to create negative SEO for your competitors, better to create your own positive SEO. Hacking and cloning, now that's a whole different ball game!

I prefer positive SEO over negative and of course the threat that hackers present is a constant challenge facing everyone who uses the internet to write.

I just want to write! I figure if I get the title in the first sentence and the last and once in between it will all work out.

I used Grammarly at times and other things to check to make sure my title was the right length and if it contained the right power words. But then I reverted back to just doing it my own way and am happy with the results.
