The new Link Disinfection tool: get rid of unwanted links

The new Link Disinfection tool in SEOprofiler helps you to get
rid of links
that can harm the rankings of your web pages on Google. It can help you
a lot, if your website has been damaged by an SEO service that used
shady methods to promote your website.

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 page.

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.
