Google Penguin 3.0: how to get rid of bad backlinks

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.

Link Disinfection tool can help you a lot if your website has been
damaged by an SEO service that used shady methods to promote your

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

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.
