I have never spent much time caring about backlinks, seo or this kind of stuff. All I cared about was to produce great content that would bring real customers to my brick and mortar business.

It worked well, really well, for years. The website kept growing, ranking first place of page one in all the search engines. And it did not have any kind of optimizations!

It was just age, generous backlinks from visitors, and killer content.

Then some competitors discovered the internet. Smart guys! We were selling online since 2002 (and I was selling software online since 1997) and had great placements, so what could they do to outrank us?

SPAM.

Yeah, and unfortunatly spam does work. At least to get rankings. I don't think it works at getting and keeping customers, because one of the companies that spammed the web outranking us closed down last year and their high PR site with thousands of blogroll backlinks is now gone.

But SPAM works, and can ruin years of clean, serious work. In less than an year, the above mentioned spammers took over google's first page rankings, with paper thin web sites and content scraped all over the internet.

So what should you do in this case? Go and fight back spamming more than they already do?

No. Remember the motto: don't be evil.

Just visit some forums, read, learn, and even experiment a bit.

There are 100% clean, ethical and working methods that can outrank any spammer if your content is worth the hassle of implementing them.
