    The topic of negative SEO is hard to understand. On the one hand, Google says, “Don’t worry about it.” On the other hand, this is not a problem, because you can disavow any spam links you find that point to your site, even if you didn’t purchase them.

    Let’s highlight the main points:

    • Not everything that looks like negative SEO is. All sites have strange external links. But this does not mean that every unnatural link is the machinations of competitors.
    • A sudden influx of strange links could be mistaken for an attack.
    • In most cases, if competitors are attacking your site with spam links, Google’s algorithms will ignore them and you won’t see a drop in rankings.
    • If you are in a hyper-competitive niche, then your site could be subject to a sophisticated SEO attack.
    • If you’ve built up unnatural links yourself, you could be penalized – it’s good that Google is unable to distinguish between unnatural links and link attacks.
    • Sites that aren’t in a competitive niche and don’t engage in unnatural link building don’t need to worry about negative SEO.
    • In any case, if you think you are under negative SEO, it is necessary to conduct regular audits and add links to the disavow file.
