EASY WAY TO FIND AND REMOVE BAD BACKLINKS

I am going to share with you an easy way to find and remove bad backlinks from your or blog. Indeed, you must know you are doing this.

Before we remove anything, we need to know: what are backlinks? To answer, we first have to know this before we can figure out what are bad backlinks.

 

WHAT ARE BACKLINKS

Backlinks are links from another website that links to your site.

So, if Site A has a clickable link on it that says something like: Go to Site B, then site B is said to have a backlink from Site A.

What Is A Backlink

 

WHICH ARE BAD BACKLINKS AND WHICH ARE GOOD?

Backlinks are one of the strongest Google ranking signals. Now we know everyone wants to rank on Google’s first page to get free search traffic.

In the old days, Google’s ranking algorithm favoured sites with the most links. As such, unscrupulous persons figured that they could add as many low-quality links as possible and rank highly.

By the way, what are low-quality links? These are links from sites with low authority. These include spammy sites and sites with low backlink counts.

HOW PENGUIN UPDATE STILL IMPACTS YOU

So Google figured enough was enough and tanked the spammy sites. History records it as the now infamous Google Penguin update. From Wikipedia:

Google Penguin is a codename for a Google algorithm update that was first announced on April 24, 2012. The update is aimed at decreasing search engine rankings of websites that violate Google’s Webmaster Guidelines by using now declared black-hat SEO techniques involved in increasing artificially the ranking of a webpage by manipulating the number of links pointing to the page. Such tactics are commonly described as link schemes

Guess what? This algorithm still remains and may just be affecting your website or blog.

Why? Websites with poor link quality will always be around.

REMOVE BAD BACKLINKS THE LONG WAY

In a recent article on Entrepeneur.com, this was the recommended method:

I recommend that you log in to your Google Search Console, go to “Search Traffic” and then click on “Links to Your Site.” From here, go to “Your Most Linked Content.” Once you reach this point, you will want to “Download Latest Links Report.”

This process requires some knowledge of SEO. Why?
How many of us will be able to look on a link report and tell which links are spammy and which are quality backlinks? Additionally, the article also recommends that the work is done by an SEO company.
Why not save by doing it yourself?
