It looks as Google with their note in webmaster tools gave idea and open wide door to new/old tactic and technique from competitors who gonna to crush you.
It is very easy to buy crappy link and there are already people who talk did it on other forum and they explain exactly how they do it.
Here is what one of them said 3 weeks a go:
"I Penalized My Competitor with ALN"
Only took 3 weeks and $200. This was a site that had been in the top 3 in the 'home decor' sector - ran 2 different ALN blasts with tons of relevant varied keywords to their site, (as 'viagra' and '#*$!' links never work for hurting your competitors - been there, tried that).
This is amazing.
They dropped down to page 7 of Google about 12 hours ago! I know it's too soon to come to conclusions, but if this penalty holds, negative seo is just as good as positive seo! lol!
FYI They did greatly increase in ranking for the first 10 days or so - then they didn't move up or down...until yesterday afternoon =) "
So what now. What did Google? Google simple penalized victims. Great...
There will be now big market for people who gonna to buy simple crappy links for 300 - 400 $ and and destroy life of their competitors.
