Is this a blackhat strategy? (and what kind?)

A spammer (who already build a lot of spam links) has reached my site multiple times with the following kind of links:

example.com/page/2/?page=buy-percription-drugs-from-canada&key=57
example.com/?page=buy-percription-drugs-from-canada&key=5

Does he try to tag my website with spam, so that Google lowers my rankings?

I have never seen this kind of blackhat/spam SEO tactic. Does anyone know more about this strategy?

  • Mister ozzy,

    What do you mean he has “reached your site multiple times”. Do you mean these links referred him to your site or do you mean he is building links like these to your site?

    Typically the more common scenario is that someone either leaves links in UGC areas of a site or they build spammy links to a website in order to drops its rankings in search.

    Maybe you can find an answer here,

    Yes, unfortunately this is the reality of SEO in 2013, google allows negative SEO to happen. If you know who he is and your business is big enough, ask your Lawyer to send him a cease and desist letter, this will likely stop him in his tracks.

      The problem is proving something like that. My guess is it's impossible
