Website Negative SEO - Solution required

There are many cases of negative SEO one can see with their blogs some days ago I had got the similar experience which results in outrank keywords and ends up in low traffic volume.
Negative SEO was done by back-linking some of my good keywords with some of the porn websites and spammy websites. I searched for many solutions for the same over the web but all ended up in using google disavow tool. but that also was not the full proof solution.
DO suggest me the best solutions for the same which can be applied to the situation

AFAIK there is no such thing as “negative SEO” as far as sites being able to do it to other sites, let alone “many cases”.

Are you saying there are links like

<a href="http://somepornsite">your keyword</a>
<a href="http://somespamsite">your keyword</a>

or like

<a href="http://yoursite">wrong keyword</a>
<a href="http://yoursite">wrong keyword</a>

If the first, I don’t think there’s much you can do about other sites using “your” keywords. (except maybe report them to Google as being poor search results)

If the second, then disavow is what you should do.

disavow just add tag nofollow tag with the link and its also comes with lots of precautions
links to me with bad sites are like they link anchor tag with follow link at early stage it looks beneficial but after some time it affect your keyword google rank

Disavow does not add nofollow to links in other sites. It tells Google you want Google to disregard them.

True, if “bad” sites are linking to yours it may negatively affect your site.

But disavow is what you want to do in this situation.

What are the precautions?

one thing regarding to that is it can also affect your good links
disavow cannot be undone at any point of time
and it doesn’t really remove the link but just disregard it
the process of disavow is fully automatic and links do process in long period of time it can take upto 6 months for the same

Hmm, I took a look

We recommend that you disavow backlinks only if you believe you have a considerable number of spammy, artificial, or low-quality links pointing to your site, and if you are confident that the links are causing issues for you. In most cases, Google can assess which links to trust without additional guidance, so most normal or typical sites will not need to use this tool.


So most likely you need not worry about them at all?

If you think your competitor did negative SEO for your website, just go through webmaster links and delete spammy links from your website by using Disallow tool.
