What Do We Actually Do?
Penguin Link Detox
It’s actually a quite simple process. We grab your websites link profile form your Google Webmaster Tools account and other major link detection tools we have at our disposal.
Once we have a complete list of your link profile we’ll analyse them to see which ones are toxic and hurting your rankings right now.
After this we’ll manually get in touch with the web masters and site owners of the sites that have these toxic links published on them. We’ll actually repeat this process up to 3 times to ensure we remove as many links manually as possible.
However if we just can’t get in touch with any of the sites that host these toxic links, we’ll prepare a disavow report outlining all actions taken thus far, which we then submit to Google on your behalf. If we identify that your site is currently under a penalty, we’ll also prepare a reconsideration report to submit to Google as well.
Once this service is underway, and we see further Panda issues with your site we’ll help you address these.
Matt Cuts Talks About Panda
Panda Site Improvement
We will scan your entire website and look for sticking points which may cause a Panda penalty against it.
We look for the following factors:
- User Engagement Metrics
- Website Bounce Rate
- Site Load Speed
- Duplicate Content
- Thin Content Pages
- Correct Website Architecture
- Semantic Optimisation
- And many more secret factors.
As we’ve mentioned numerous times, out of all the website penalty analysis’s we’ve completed, we’ve never seen a website compliant to all factors and not benefit from our services.
How Are We Different To Other Google Penalty Recovery Services?
Well first of all we are a complete solution. Not only do we help you clean up your toxic link profile, but we are also experts at improving any Panda issues you may be experiencing. On top our process is much safer and reliable than automated link analysis & removal software programs.
Here’s the thing. If you’re currently under a penalty you’ve probably ended up there because you trusted a automated link building solution (like SEnuke, Ultimate Demon or GSA) or a SEO expert who used these tools. So why would you make the same mistake twice and trust automated machines which are notorious for false reports and analysing links incorrectly?
We’ve received reports of instances where these tools actually reported high quality and costly earned links as negative links. Remember links are still the No.1 offsite ranking factor – and high quality links is still the only way to get right to the top… but once you submit a link to Google to be disavowed it becomes lost forever – along with any ranking juice it gave your site. No matter how costly, hard earned or genuine the link.
Let’s get real here… more than likely you’ve ended in the place you’re in because you’ve trusted automated tools, while human powered link building has always been more expensive – all our clients sites which have used our manual link building services have not experienced a single penalty – it’s because human powered campaigns will always outperform a software driven campaign.
Just think about it… while the software developer probably gets the process right of identifying your links all over the – they have no idea about SEO or what makes a link toxic and they definitely don’t have years of experience and knowledge of how Google works and values links…
All our link clean up campaigns and site reports are completed manually by experienced SEO professionals. We know what makes a site high quality and a link profile to contain exactly what Google is looking for.
So if you’d like help recovering your site, we encourage you to contact us for more information and our pricing.
FAQ’s About Our Recovery Services
There are two levels of Panda recovery services. We can simply outline and give directions of what factors are currently non compliant or hurting your website based on Google’s guidelines. You then have the option to get your own developers make these changes or hire us to complete the changes for you.
This is a service based offering where we do all the hard work for you. We identify spammy links, manually engage site owners hosting these links in efforts to remove them manually and prepare/submit link disavow reports to discount any other toxic links we can’t remove manually.
We have a variety of strategies and ways to find valid contact information from these web masters. Many times this process alone is a long outdrawn process and if you don’t know our secret strategies it could take days to find this information or you’ll be unsuccessful altogether. We know… we’ve been there.
However now we have a process proven and systemised that tracks down web masters details – EVEN IF THEY DON’T WANT TO BE FOUND!
Our link clean up campaigns are charged at a monthly fee of $495/month (exc GST). While it’s a monthly clean up campaign, many times we are able to complete the entire clean up before the second month is due. It’s only a monthly campaign for those sites that are under SERIOUS link penalties…
The way we’ve seen Panda penalties being removed is by making the necessary changes to a website, have the Google spiders revisit the site and sometimes instantly, sometimes after a few days rankings across a site improve.
In regards to Penguin it’s been a different story, Google tends to refresh Penguin only several times a year and our data indicates changes only take effect after the refresh. So you will be able to expect ranking boosts after the next Penguin refresh.
The good news is that we’ve seen refreshes become more and more regular.
One thing you will also need to take into consideration is that you will be losing link juice and authority by cleaning up your profile, whether the links are toxic or not. Since this is a ranking factor, if you don’t replace these links with healthy powerful links, you will also see the power of your link profile decrease.
This is why we encourage all our clients to also actively work on high quality link and online promotion campaigns during and beyond the recovery phase. For more information about our SEO services click here
