Negative SEO on My Site

           

I can’t believe this! I just checked my site backlinks in my WMT account and found that someone has created 40,296 backlinks to my site from the domain miningwise.com.

Unbelievable! I mean this site was already down due the Penguin update anyway. What really shakes me up is that there are some guys out there actually doing this stuff now.

I checked the site and it is definitely a splog. Crappy spun articles, which is probably the purpose of it really as to NAIL my site in the serps.

Looking at the whois the domain is registered to prime domains located in NY. I just did a quick search for them and couldn’t find any contact or business details. More worrying than that is that I found they have already been identified in a phishing scam. Here’s the link: http://www.phishtank.com/phish_detail.php?phish_id=1247412&frame=details

Bottom line, it’s hard to say what effect this had had on my site since it was already a bit down. I haven’t received any WMT link notifications for any of my sites, but I may be expecting something soon from this site. We’ll see….
