How to Overcome The Unnatural Link Building Penalty

This is an extension of previous post on un natural linkbuilding penalty. Lately, I am getting phone calls from friends how to fix the issue of poor link building. Many friends of mine get warnings on un natural links in Google webmaster central.

I put forward the problem in my previous post. Now I share the solution of how to overcome this mess which we have all created over the years. For close to 4 years, Google never introduced a see saw change that has directly jeopardize the website because of spam link building techniques. If Vince Algorithm is for brands panda update is for Content this new Link building algorithm is for Backlins.

Now that Google evaluates the quality of back links with its latest technology. Put your feet in the Google shoes. Think. What would you have done to stop spam links? Same Google has done now. I won’t say every one of us has manipulated the back link algorithm. But some of the seo agencies has just continued age old link building technique. True, getting bulk links is time consuming but not as difficult as obtaining quality links.

First things first what a warning message in Google webmasters central mean.  Either you are going to penalize in next 21 days for your link building strategy. Or it’s already been penalized. If you have received warning and rankings has not dipped down remove all the junk links. If you have received warning and also rankings has dropped then remove cheap links and resubmit to Google.

Surprisingly we noticed phrase based keywords that got bulk anchor text links has got hit severely. It’s too early to judge that only anchor text keywords are receiving hit but so far only these phrase based keywords has been hit.

A typical process of this algorithm is find artificially built links, send warning and then penalize the website.

Link networks: Google is de indexing all the pages created by link Networks Company. The problem over here is same content and same anchor text has published in tons of websites. Already major companies received huge blow. Companies which are not in Google radar will get hit in coming months. Remove your links from all these websites.

Link networks set up by SEO agencies is also not an exception from this. While doing competitive analysis I have viewed lots of wordpress blog with a normal template that talks all kinds of industries just like article directories. Ask your SEO agencies to clean up the mess.

Blog roll links

Is it unusual linking website in blog roll instead of a blog? Is it unusual liking anchor text and not name of the organization or name of the blog in sidebar links? Remove all the links or change the anchor text or link to the sub pages. I recommend link your blog from sidebar links.

Anchor texts

Google has already devaluating the spam anchor text links. Edit the anchor texts and maintain vividness and diversity.

Mirror websites

Stay away from mirror directories and bookmarkings. Submit to popular bookmarking and nice directories. Request admins to remove the back links from their website.
