What to do with bad links?

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by juewls, May 7, 2013.

    hello
    Just last week I noticed that my traffic has significantly decreased. After some examination i discovered about 50 new backlins from some Chinese sites. I am not sure how i got those and am convinced they might be the reason why my traffic is down.

    Has anyone experienced anything like that? If so what do i do to remove them?

    Thanks in advance!

    Disavow tool is just for requesting for removal of a link, it is not guaranteed that your links would be removed or it would take time.

    In My Opinion Effective way of detecting bad links on your website is to compare it with that of a more successful business rival. Use Disavow Tool that tool enable all the sites owner to promptly inform search engines upon the discovery bad back links may be created by spammer or the third party.

    Apart from using the Disavow tool, which can take time to take effect, I suggest you build positive, quality links to your site. If you have 50 negatives links, then create/build the same number or more of positive backlinks to counter the effect of the negative links.

    Hope that helps. Have a good day!

    Analyze again your site. There are plenty of web services to find and remove unnatural links. Some of them offer free trial packages. For example you could use linkdelete.com or removeem.com (as someone mentioned earlier). Or you can consider some new services as linkquidator.com (relatively recent services and much more improved).
    After that, copy and paste those undesired links in Google disavow tool. And you're good to go. Simple as that :)

    well yeah, It may take you a month or two (or so) till those links will be disavowed. So you'll just have to wait.
