One thing is clear: the better niche, the greater are the chances for people to enter it ... less ethical. When competition is bitter, you must expect "joy" at all times.
Negative SEO is one of those things a rival webmaster can do to you ... under certain conditions.

You know that when you add some poor quality links to your site, Google may be penalizing you. I refer here to links to sites from dubious niches (porn), to niche sites entirely different from yours. Or maybe you've posted a link comment on a site where another 350 people have commented, each with its link.

If you're a beginner, you probably have made the above mistakes ... And you've seen how traffic has dropped (if any). Well, this bad linkbuilding strategy, when it's used by competition and targets your site, is called negative SEO. In other words, the competition enters those dubious sites and puts a link to you!

As stupid as it may seem, these things happen and you have to wait for them. Why?
Because the site should be seen as a business, with risks and rewards. No worries: The negative SEO cannot touch you. You will be immune exactly like Achilles in Greek mythology. Immersed by his mother in the Styx waters, the heel was his only vulnerable part.

What is Achilles' heel when it comes to negative SEO? Have a "dozen" site.
Negative SEO (and dubious links in general) affects only small and medium sites. Google assumes that a small site is more likely to attempt to rank faster than a reputable one. Google also knows that a large site will never risk the reputation it has in its niche. So he will ignore these dubious links

The study of negative SEO leads, as in the case of the "positive", to one conclusion:
A serious, quality content blog that gives value to visitors and solves their problems will be unimaginable to competition.
