Negative SEO attacks on the CBD Industry

Home » Blog » Negative SEO attacks on the CBD Industry

The CBD industry is experiencing a rising tide of negative SEO attacks, which are causing major damages. These attacks can range from spammy backlinks to fake reviews.

Negative SEO attacks can have a devastating impact, affecting everything from search engine rankings to online reputation and ultimately, revenue. Businesses may struggle to regain lost ground, as the consequences can be felt for months or even years.

They can take a variety of forms, with one of the most common being the placement of links on low-quality or spammy websites. The goal of these links is to harm the targeted business’s reputation and lower their search engine rankings.

Adult content, violent or dangerous content, and spammy or irrelevant information are examples of low-quality websites. Links from low-quality websites, such as those containing adult industry content or harmful links from news articles related to violence and dangerous content, can have serious consequences for a website.

When search engines detect such links, they may raise red flags that harm the website’s reputation and lower its ranking. This is particularly concerning because it can lead to websites being flagged as inappropriate for certain audiences.

Ongoing Monitoring

We’ve been monitoring these attacks for quite some time now. We have spoken to numerous brands who have fallen victim to these attacks. Having seen the damage caused, we understand how frustrating it can be for businesses that have worked hard to establish themselves.

We have launched investigations and are filing reports with domain registrars, hosting companies, and search engines. We have a strong determination to protect our clients and the broader industry from these malicious tactics.

It is important for businesses to take proactive measures to protect themselves. This includes monitoring toxic backlinks and analytics, keeping an eye out for any suspicious activity.

If you are experiencing negative SEO attacks or are concerned about a sudden drop in rankings, please contact us for assistance and advice. We commit to collaborate with the CBD community to safeguard and promote the success and growth of the industry.

We can overcome negative SEO attacks and create a more prosperous online environment for CBD businesses if we work together.
