Recovering from a Google Penalty – BackLink Risk Management
So, you’ve probably been told by several “experts” that your site has been infected by low quality backlinking from 2010 or 2012 and now you realize that you need help to fix this.  What you need to do (or have us do) is to disavow certain removing bad backlinks- recovering from a google penaltybacklinks.  Similar to a surgery where the surgeon tries not to “nick” a nerve, what we do is to go in and look at all of your backlinks, identify which ones have a low page rank (usually 0 to 1) & are part of “spammy” link networks; then we remove only those ones using Google’s Disavow tool.

Got Results introduces BackLink Risk Ongoing Management.   It includes:

  1. Recovering your website from Google penalties.
  2. Ongoing protection from negative links and “bad SEO”
  3. The ongoing practice of building “safe” backlinks
  4. Repeating steps 2 and 3 continuously every month.

So, is it even possible to recover from a Google Penalty?

Yes, but it takes alot of time & effort.  You have to appeal with Google’s Disavow tool.

The procedure that we follow is to:

  • Collect, Organize all of your Backlinks.

How do we do this?  We use multiple tools as no one tool does it all, each tool covers different aspects of Linking, so, we collect link data and organize them into one big file using tools such as:  LinkResearchTools (specifically, the Quick Backlinks Tool), Majestic, Ahrefs, Moz’s Open Site Explorer, Bing Webmaster Tools, and Google Webmaster Tools.

  • We analyze all of your backlinks (for more information, review Google’s Webmaster Guidelines on linking).  We rate the “Risk Level” of each link.  We remove obvious “deadly Risk” rated links.  We take a more closer look at the links that are rated “moderate risk”.  We want to manually review each one so as to not remove a quality backlink, but only a spammy one.
  • We remove Spammy Low Quality Links & duplicates and Disavow the bad links.  This involves removing links that we have control over, reaching out to webmasters and owners of sites to remove links that we don’t control.  After that, we can appeal to Google to put all remaining links into the Disavow tool, located  in Google’s webmaster tools.  This appeal process is given by Google to basically Tell Google that we would like Google to take these bad links into consideration when Google assesses your site.
  • Finally, we wait patiently for Google’s Response.  This can take from several days to several months.  Google also provides a reconsideration request where we can keep appealing for them to review your site.

Recovery is absolutely possible.  We recommend you to have ongoing link management and review so as to protect against spammy links.
