PLUS MANY MORE – anchor text, sites with malware, are site-wide, identical C-Class, bad neighbourhoods etc.
Don’t sit trawling through your clients/sites backlink profile in isolation – consider it alongside competitors, what they are doing and how they are performing.A handful of bad links amongst other high authority brand ones? Probably don’t worry so much about that.PLEASE before investing bags of time going through every single link with a fine toothcomb – make sure any penalties are not on sites ones.
Careful not to blindly panic and respond immediately to Google changes – a lot of what they say is likely FUD tactics (fear, uncertainty and doubt).
So all things considered, you’ve identified some shit links and decided to try and get them removed. How do you write a links removal request?
This pisses me off. I see SO many people doing it and it’s just not polite. When people email my blog and ask for links to be removed (because we’ve essentially been running a link farm for 4 years) you’re immediately on the back foot. And I don’t like you.People know what you’re up to…pretending you’ve changed your internal brand policy or something just won’t cut it.Pay. Contentious, I know and I imagine we can have some nice debate about this later but my thoughts kind of are…we fucked ourselves a bit paying bloggers/sites etc FOR links. I have done it. I advocate it. It’s easy/cost effective and can work…BUT if we can try and avoid getting ourselves in that situation for removing them as well, then let’s try. Maybe it’s too late.
1. If you ask a tumblr owner to remove or nofollow just one link on a post they might. If you ask the same tumblr owner to remove or nofollow a link from one post and a bunch of tag posts generated by that original then they’re less likely to as you’re making it look like moer work and making it look like you don’t understand tumblr.Why as an industry – are we terrified of the phone?
Not mine – I disavow at a domain level.
So I’m going to be really ground breaking and talk about the importance of social…I have a client which owns 2 brands, both operating in exactly the same space, offering exactly the same products – just with 2 different demographic positions to capture as much share of the market as possible.Same ATL activity, SEO budgets, same SEO activity, same platforms, levels of engagement, same domain age etcetcOne brand invests heavily in social and is over 35% of their entire marketing budget.The other barely does anything at all.… guess which brand is which?Links have little / no effect without social wrappers
Firstly…can I just say, no Matt Cutts – I am not going to no follow all press releases.
