First of all, MOZ is a completely inadequate tool for SEO analysis. Same goes for SEMRush and many-many others that are considered to be very reputable. If you look closer at their data, you will be shocked to find out that it's sometimes five years old despite of what it looks like. Ahrefs, however, is one of the most accurate tools. Therefore, when you see ...

A PTR record is used to map an IP address to a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). So basically the opposite of what an IP address does. If you are worried about email spoofing, you may also want to set up an SPF1 and SPF2 record, which if set to a hard fail will also prevent spam being spoofed from your IP address/domain name. However with regards to ...

The company whose infrastructure is being used to host the website can be identified with a DNS Lookup which in this case reveals three A records: 54.246.86.121 (ec2-54-246-86-121.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com) 46.137.164.212 (ec2-46-137-164-212.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com) 54.247.110.132 (ec2-54-247-110-132.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com) ...

First, you need to make sure that you have registered each version of your website (www vs. non-www) with Google Webmaster Central. From there, this is where you can disavow all of the links from the domains that are doing this as soon as you can. Once you disavow them, Google will not penalize you for being linked to by sites with shady content. https://...

If your intention is to expose how spam is being employed and help the visitor recognize and learn to identify spam, that may be a different story. Even if your good intentions are clearly spelled out to your visitor(s) Google may still overlook that fact and penalize you based on the links and content you provide.

The answer is no, according to Google. Don't Worry About Spammy Links. And you do not do anything. John Mueller of Google was asked on Twitter if one should disavow the spammy links that you see from an article going viral. John said "no need" to do that.

Due to the way that most crawlers work they will detect your site as being spammy and penalize it. It will most likely still appear in the search engine indexes as long as it isn't reported as a malicious site but you will not rank very highly at all unless you have very specific niche keywords which other sites do not use or someone does a search ...

I wouldn't use WordPress for a honeypot, which is what I think you want to do. I'd just build a quick informational site with a commenting system that doesn't do email verification or captcha. Also put an open mailto link on it for people to use if they have problems posting. Post a link to the domain wherever you can, as well as a link to the email address. ...

Google is smart enough to know the difference. They crunch tons of data, can see patterns -- and have been doing so for years. Links are a big part of ranking a site; they don't want the results manipulated. If you want to believe in negative SEO that's totally up to you. I'm not going to try to convince you otherwise. My rankings also get affected by it....

A simple solution I always find myself recommending. Use Cloudflare's services and you can block the spammers before they even hit your server so it won't cause any speed issues. You can block entire countries if you wanted to as well. I know it isn't answer specifically for Cpanel but it will work alot better.

It will not, or at least it makes sense to block them. Just compare: 1) blocking at the firewall level is close to the the kernel, therefore very fast 2) allowing the attacker to pass to the site involves apache, perhaps php and 404 error generation. Too much CPU and network resources. If you have have millions IPs to block there, then it will slow down the ...

Okay. http://whois.domaintools.com/rustamt0wel.com is going to tell you as much as you can get on your own. However, it sounds like it is time for an attorney. Preferably one who specializes in Internet issues. If your customer engages an attorney, the attorney can contact the legal department of VistaPrint and Tucows and get a real name. From there a ...

I'd not bother doing it, because in some cases, you might end up bothering the wrong person and they will take revenge on you. I'd say, exploit the loopholes and go along with it, because reporting the links is a waste of time in my opinion. Only do better than your competitors and that's all, of course, the white hat venue will take more time, but if you ...

Most probably your hosting company does not enable DKIM for your domain by default. I assume that you are using CPANEL software. To enable DKIM on Cpanel see this video. Read More about DKIM and why it is important. Or if you use VPS then you should setup it your own, but it depends what server software do you use. For more targeted help please provide info ...
