Is it true that if a certain type of links can rank you quickly, it can also make your rankings fall quickly as well?

Is it true that if a certain type of links can rank you quickly, it can also make your rankings fall quickly as well? What's your experience?
Yep, but if you don't know what you're doing, you will tank your rank
Hey jordan Pearce it like using sape link and dont know what you doing right
Alvon Portis exactly lol. Don't tell people our secret man lol
Jordan Pearce check your inbox bro
Yes. I removed all my PBN links for 100+ sites. Most of them dropped. The solution: build a few solid guest post links. Rankings recovered.
Yes. The algorithms calculate stuff. The moment the input changes, like the very instant, then obviously the output will change. Algorithmic penalties can be applied the instant the algorithm detects them. Even Google can't instantly spider every page and every link that exists. Sometimes it can take months to detect something changing where it happens on a low-crawl priority destination URL. But if it happens on lots of URLs, or happens on high-priority URLs, then Google picks it up faster. This is what lead people who simply didn't know any better to believe that if you build links too fast it will get a penalty - their volume of links meant there was more chance that one or more deserved a penalty, and the number of links increased the chances that one or more of the URLs was soon to be crawled and detected. But obviously, the problem was that one or more of the links caused a penalty, and the speed of detection was not changing the inevitable result, only making it happen sooner.
So there is negative SEO after all... Most of our backlinks are pharma and porn. This is probably why we don't rank high.
Radu Plugaru Yes. Negative SEO is a real thing. As long as there are penalties, or negative signals, there exists the possibility for applying them to a rival. It just isn't as easy as it sounds without applying serious budget, such that Google couldn't believe a rival would spend that much to do bad things. ;) Pharma and Porn in themselves are not a problem. The highly successful and highly ranked porn sites have, unsurprisingly, thousands of porn backlinks. Top medical researchers tend to have backlinks from the pharma industry. But the key thing is that they'll tend to have high authority and worthy links from those industries.
But doesn't Google claim links don't have negative value? Because we are talking about links, no? I know that if someone hacks your website - thing could get ugly. Same thing with shady plugins, flood attacks, etc. But how exactly can a competitor tank you? Perhaps this kind of info should stay private )))
the velocity of the links could be a factor too Ammon Johns especially if they are of a "poor quality"
Max Donelly merely 'poor quality' links don't do much of anything, and velocity of links is a bit of a nonsense as I explained recently. However, you are right that outright 'bad' links, ones that actually count against you, can be an issue, and that issue is made more serious by adding lots of them (regardless of speed).
Ammon Johns this is nonsense then?
Links aren't static. The signals they pass can vary based on changes to the pages they sit on.
Pbns have caused me nitemare in the past - as they grow it's rare that quality content grows too. What starts as great lik
Its also not so much the velocity. Velocity (done right) can mimic a naturally viral effect. But that viral effect also has to have a natural tapering off and proper maintenance mode to support its validity. "Unnatural" link patterns do get flagged, and in some cases penalized. But everything has to be taken in context (site, age, niche, existing link velocity, drop off, etc. etc).
