    I have a site which has contraversial content ( more for USA ) and although the site is getting very good traffic and rates very high in Google for its own search term, I am getting HUGE amounts of back links from sites I dont really want to be associated with.

    The site is running off wordpress and I can track site visitors with a plug in I use. The plug shows me exactly where the traffic is being referred from.
    SEMrush
    The back links to my site are from porn sites, male extension, tech, poker sites and many many SEO services. Also my server stats are showing links from all kinds of sites.

    How are these sites linking to me ?. There are no links on any of these sites to mine and the list is getting longer and longer. There is no spam on my site as I use an image verifying process to submit comments. I have had no spam comments the past 7 days and am wondering if their is anby malicious intent involved as the sites content is related to julian assange. (support-julian-asange.DOT com)

    Is there any way of getting rid of them ??

    Possibly that your competitor submit your site to that site :( You can directly contact the webmaster and ask him to remove your link from the site.

    Such situation is called linkbombing when competitors try to harm your website.

    Weve used this method in the past to outrank other sites, google, yahoo, bing, they will second adult content to a real site under any keyword.

    They could be natural and deleted before you check them.

    Either way wordpress allows you to block sites. add them to your blocked list.

    I need to see the sites in question. post some with out links
