(For most – the best place to check for a negative seo attack is in Google Webmaster Tools. Download recent back links from Google Webmaster Tools and review them and look for low quality links pointing to your site. NOT ALL low quality links are spam. You can also check at Majestic SEO for recent link patterns.)
Quick Negative SEO alert tip for bloggers……
This won’t work for everybody but it worked for me (or rather, I happened across this simple method). But if you have a blog yourself, this might help you.

I wouldn’t have known this quickly, but for looking at Technorati.
Google Alerts isn’t really that good for links alerts these days and the basic wordpress incoming links feature is pretty much useless.
Keep an eye on Technorati (remember that?) – they seem to highlight spammy blogs linking to your site before just about anything else. Not all blogs will be in Technorati, of course, but it’s something to check for recent blog links to your site and it’s free….Let me know if you’re using any other methods.
