    Hey All,
    Came across an interesting write up about unusual traffic from a client of Securi.

    What the client thought was a DDOS attack, was infact an increase of fake traffic by Black Hat SEO methods.

    Anyone here bought some Blackhat traffic and immediately regretted it?

    Thanks Christopher, I had a client who had a competitor buy thousands of spammy links to point to his website, it eventually resulted in a Google slap down. It then ended up costing him to have a good credible SEO company fix it

    There is an Blackhat SEO in India, if you contact him to remove the links he sends his PBN at you and extorts you for money to stop the attack. You can submit a disavow list to Google to remove the attack.
