    Negative SEO is the unprincipled action of attacking a competitor's website so that it either gets banned by Google or it drops in search engine rankings. Obviously, this is a serious issue and can spell the end for affected businesses.

    A common method is to buy paid links (which is against Google's Webmaster Guidelines) and point them to the site you wish to get penalised. Google has recently come up with a new tool called the disavow tool, which allows website owners to inform Google of any links they consider to be dubious, and therefore in need of ignoring.

    Negative SEO can take a couple of different forms but in general, it refers to someone purchasing links, unnatural links, that are then aimed at a website belonging to a competitor in an attempt to negatively affect their ranking in search engine results. Another negative SEO tactic is to bomb them with 5-star reviews so that it appears that the reviews are paid reviews. When it appears to the search engines that reviews are purchased rather than natural the site can be penalized. Basically, negative SEO is the opposite of using white hat, purposeful SEO strategies to help increase a site or page’s ranking in SERPs. It is done from outside a targeted site to decrease its PageRank. It is a malicious attempt used by competitors. The point is to decrease a competitor’s ranking so that your ranking can move up in the search engine result pages.

    Generally, negative SEO refers to when one website buys links and points them at a competitor’s website in an effort to turn their rankings upside down. One way is hacking the competitor's website to cause some sort of malicious damage, or simply by reporting another website’s “black hat” tactics to Google.

    I think negative SEO is building spam links on competitor's website in order to decrease their ranking deliberately. But I don't totally agree with this technique.



    -------------------------
    This technique exists especially after the recent Google updates as competitors know very effective techniques to decrease your ranking.
     
    We don't have a control over those though and I too do not agree with this technique. 
     
    To make sure that we are not victims of this technique, we need to create a large number of natural back links which we can get by doing white hat SEO. 
     
    Make your brand well known in many areas especially to the niche you are trying to rank. Once you have this, people will naturally share your link without you knowing it. Like what we do in YouTube and in Facebook or Twitter.

    Negative SEO is the process demoting the ranking of a website. Basically this is opposite to that of SEO in which we optimize a website to get higher ranking in major search engines. Negative SEO is process of doing reverse SEO to demote a website from top ranking to the last pages. These techniques are used for competitor's website but this is under Black hat SEO techniques.
