Obviously I'm worried about negative SEO - from an industry wide perspective, not my own. I couldn't care less. I haven't been penalised. But when I posted in Google's forum, it was like a "Please troll me"
I was amazed that in 2014, people still let their ego's answer forum questions. Everybody assume I had bad links and was penalised.
I reposted with every reply: The question is thus:
How can we be responsible for links others build?
One link we were warned about was just a blogger on blogspot.com who didn't have a lot of authority. Why in fcuk's name would I possibly want to build a militarised zone around my website?
Guys - this is getting crazy - are there /ANY/ sane SEO's lef????
No, what I got was worse - people were telling me I couldn't link from my one domain to the other that it had to be nofollow.
If Google wants us to build websites without worrying about Google it's done the reverse.
