Competitors can harm your rankings with links. I am 100% certain.
...given the fact that you aren't 100% certain you'll recover from this it would seem your new calling is where you have 100% certainty.
The number of links and amount of money it will take, will depend on many different factors i.e number of links already pointing to the domain.
In your certainty... how many links and how much did it cost to take you out?
In your certainty how many links already pointed to your domain.
You have vast experience here... can you share these datasets?
Surely real values support 100% certainty and are better to work with than vague references that are meaningless.
Though I guess if you're that certain your rankings can't be hurt. Hand your URL over to the guy offering to prove the point. I wouldn't, but if you're so certain and keen to prove you're right, go for it
Who was this? The only reference I saw was someone wanting you to harm them not someone that could do it.
I'll even pay to play... kill my weak domain and I pay for all the efforts. At least then I can appreciate what did or did not occur with specifics.
