Suppose I have a huge network of high quality backlinks. My business model is to sell sites, then, in about six months to one year, I take off most of the best backlinks and leave the rest. In that way, I can continually reuse backlinks.
In some cases, I use those links to build up my own competing sites in the same niche that I just sold the site in.
I know that the persons site will tank, but when I typically sell a site, the buyer knows little about the linking process. I tell them that there is no guarantee that the site will stay in the top ranked position. I do however try and give them some false hopes.
Suppose I sell a couple of 300k sites per week and do it for several years. Is there anything that can legally come back to bite me. I mean it says everywhere that there are no guaranteed Google rankings. In addition, the people buying don't normally even ask about the backlinks.
Here's the bottom line, I know the site is going to tank, but they don't. Is it their own problem that they don't get it? Do I have to tell them about the linking process and how SEO works.
Further, if this is illegal, how do you get a lawyer to take your case when you don't have any money? For example, if I just put out 300k for a site and that was my savings, How do I now go after the multi millionaire who screwed me.
Finally, if this has happened to lots of people, how do you do a class action law suit? For example, if you post on the internet the company or peoples names, then they will sue you for slander and threaten you.
Can I build a site to encourage people to come forth and name the people and the companies that are involved or will this get me knocked off and/or sued?
