Google’s recent Penguin 3.0 update has confirmed that
Google is serious about low quality backlinks. If your website has paid
backlinks, or automatically created backlinks, chances are that your
site will be penalized by Google. If you want to protect your rankings,
you have to remove bad backlinks that point to your site.
Remove bad backlinks that point to your site
The Link Disinfection tool in SEOprofiler helps you to get rid of links that can harm the rankings of your web pages on Google. SEOprofiler is a tool that uses only white-hat SEO methods. If you have used SEOprofiler to promote your website, you don’t need the Link Disinfection tool.
What exactly does the Link Disinfection tool do?
Google does not like artificial links (paid links, links from automated linking schemes, links that have been created by automated tools, all other artificial links, etc.).
If many of the links that point to your website are artificial, it is likely that Google will penalize your site. In this case, you will get a notification message in Google Webmaster Tools.
If you have received a notification from Google, the Link Disinfection tool can help you to clean up your backlink profile. The Link Disinfection tool analyzes the backlinks that point to your website and it filters the backlinks that might be suspicious.
How to work with the Link Disinfection tool
The Link Disinfection tool assigns a risk score to each link. The score ranges from 0 to 100%. The higher the risk score, the more likely it is that the link has a negative effect on the rankings of your website.
A score below 65% means that the link is probably okay. A score of 65% or above means that you should check the link. Even if the Link Disinfection tool assigns a high risk score to a link, it can be that the link is still okay (although that’s not likely).
Do the following to clean up your backlink profile:Step 1: Check the links that are listed in the Link Disinfection tool list.
Click a link in the Link Disinfection tool to visit the linking web page. If you don’t want to have a link from the page, click the “Add” link to add the link as a toxic link to the link manager:
Step 2: Contact the owners of the linking websites and ask them to remove the link.
Toxic links are marked in red in the link manager. They also have a red beaker icon instead of the regular website favicon.
The link manager can help you to get the contact information of other websites. Use the ‘Contact Finder Pro™’ feature to get the contact information of the linking site. Then contact the webmaster of the other site and ask them to remove the link to your page.
Step 3: Submit backlinks to Google’s disavow links tool
Some webmasters won’t remove the spammy links to your website. In addition, many spam websites don’t have any contact information at all. In that case, create a disavow links file and submit it to Google.
The Link Disinfection tool in SEOprofiler can create the disavow links file for you. Google’s disavow links tool enables you to inform Google about backlinks that you don’t want. You can use that tool if a website doesn’t want to remove the harmful backlink to your site.
