    Question Help! Competitor Spamming Blog Comments with my URL


    I've just gone through OpenSiteExplorer and discovered a heap of spammy blog comments with my domain and keywords! I think this must be a competitor...

    I have also been complaining lately of Google not liking my site - SEO Audit Recommendations Wanted - Google Seems to Dislike my Domain/Site

    Is the best way to try and counter-act this to simply disavow all the spammy links via Webmaster Tools? Is there anything else I can do!?

    This definitely needs further investigation but I would start with Disavow for sure...

    I did this a few days ago and am eagerly awaiting any results... could be a up to four months from what I can tell though!
