Can it take 2 months for Google to deindex a PR4 backlink?

    I have the following problem:
    SEMrush
    I hired a Penguin recovery company to help me to recover my website from the Penguin 2.0 penalty. They recommended me to remove a link that I had from my other website that is still PR4 even if it has some spammy backlinks. So I removed this backlink 2 month ago, but last week my website lost all its Google rankings for my main keywords.

    I'm afraid that one was my strongest link.

    Can it take Google to deindex a backlink from a PR4 website even 2 months? Or did something else happen to my website?

    Hello Andre,

    Something else happened to your website. It's not the PR4 taking 2 months to re-index.

    Google crawls sites regularly, and the higher the authority of the site, the more frequent Google crawls them. I don't have exact data for you, but a PR 4 shouldn't take any more than 1 week to get re-crawled. That time can be even less if you pinged it or updated your site map.

    Hope this helps,

    One week and two months... i doubt, it's because of the link removal...
    But was there really a need to remove the link if it had really been the strongest one?

    Thank you for your replies. I changed some things on my website, so that's probably the case.
