How your competitors can delete 39% of your backlinks

What would you say if your competitors deleted 39% of the
backlinks that point to your website? Sadly, this seems to be possible
and it is not too difficult. If you don’t want to lose your rankings,
you have to keep track of your backlinks.

How your competitors can
delete your backlinks

A blogger found out that it was very easy to get
backlinks removed. He sent link removal messages from a newly created
Gmail account stating that he was working on behalf of a client. The
results were surprising:

    • 4% of the recipients requested money to remove the link
      (between $2 and $2000).
    • 4% asked for proof that the sender of the message was
      really working for the linked company.
    • 39% of the recipients deleted the backlink to the website
      without further questions.

How to delete the backlinks of
any website in three easy steps

How to protect your backlinks

As it is very easy for your
competitors to remove your backlinks, you have to monitor your
backlinks to make sure that they are not deleted.

Fortunately, there are tools that
can help you to do this. For example, the backlink manager in
SEOprofiler automatically monitors the backlinks to your site.

If a link that points to your site
gets removed (or if it gets the nofollow attribute) the links will be
marked in red (or yellow).

It’s sad that Google’s Penguin update has resulted in a link
removal craziness that makes the above scenario possible. If you want
to get lasting results, you have to do the following:

  1. Use safe SEO methods that play by the rules. By using these
    methods, you make sure that your website gets high rankings that last.
  2. Monitor your rankings and your backlinks to make sure that
    your competitors don’t manipulate your rankings.

Fortunately, SEOprofiler can help you with both tasks. If you haven’t
done it yet, create your SEOprofiler account now:
