Penguin and Panda Recovery SEO RecoveryFix Your Spammy Link Profile Today!
Have you been receiving notifications from Google about the use of unnatural links and other issues on your site? Our Penguin and Panda SEO Recovery service is a real solution for those situations. By offering our removal and correction services, you will get the best resolution to an ever too common problem plaguing websites.
So what drives these warnings by Google you wonder? Google designed a very high tech way to seek and destroy internet spam and bad website practices, and then penalize website owners. Penguin is a search engine algorithm update aimed at lowering search engine rankings of sites found to be violating the webmaster guidelines enforced by Google. Panda is also an update to Google’s search engine ranking algorithm made to lower the ranking of low quality sites and raise the ranking of those which meet the guidelines.
Google Penguin and Panda are looking for specific things – duplicate content, thin or bad content, keyword stuffing, cloaking, link schemes, and other things deemed as “black hat” SEO techniques. Unfortunately, many inexperienced people try these techniques because they are easily learned – they then have the power to ruin a website with just a couple of key strokes. In a matter of a few bad techniques, your web page ranking can tank and internet users will never be able to find your site – regardless of how high ranking it was before.
What we do as professional experts in this area is provide damage control. Not only do we fix your penalties, spam and site errors, but educate you on how to prevent this in the future and share on the best practices of natural SEO within Google’s guidelines.
What’s the message from Google if you’re hit with a Penalty?
Here’s some insight into our process:
- We evaluate bad links which are unnaturally posted online
- Then, we run a link analysis using Google’s own link reporting tool
- An external link analysis is also conducted to evaluate anchor texts
- Unnatural links are then removed or edited to fit within the guidelines set forth by Google
- Additionally, we do a spam audit to evaluate and correct hidden links and text
- …and then rectify over optimization from prior users
Basically, our knowledge and experience of healthy SEO practices is leveraged to determine what is and isn’t accepted by Google. Using this information, we fix the damage created by misguided techniques or glitches in programming. We analyze the situation with our high tech tools and knowledge of the internet, determine what exactly the problem is, and eliminate it or bring it up to Google code.

What is Google Panda?
According to Google’s official blog post when Panda launched,
This update is designed to reduce rankings for low-quality sites—sites which are low-value add for users, copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful. At the same time, it will provide better rankings for high-quality sites—sites with original content and information such as research, in-depth reports, thoughtful analysis and so on.
Basically, Panda updates are designed to target pages that aren’t necessarily spam but aren’t great quality. This was the first ever penalty that went after “thin content,” and the sites that were hit hardest by the first Panda update were content farms (hence why it was originally called the Farmer update), where users could publish dozens of low-quality, keyword stuffed articles that offered little to no real value for the reader. Many publishers would submit the same article to a bunch of these content farms just to get extra links.
What is Google Penguin?
The Google Penguin Update launched on April 24. According to the Google blog, Penguin is an “important algorithm change targeted at webspam. The change will decrease rankings for sites that we believe are violating Google’s existing quality guidelines.” Google mentions that typical black hat SEO tactics like keyword stuffing (long considered webspam) would get a site in trouble, but less obvious tactics (link incorporating irrelevant outgoing links into a page of content) would also cause Penguin to flag your site. Says Google,
Sites affected by this change might not be easily recognizable as spamming without deep analysis or expertise, but the common thread is that these sites are doing much more than white hat SEO; we believe they are engaging in webspam tactics to manipulate search engine rankings.
Site owners should be sure to check their Google Webmaster accounts for any messages from Google warning about your past spam activity and a potential penalty. Google says that Penguin has impacted about 3.1% of queries (compared to Panda 1.0’s 12%). If you saw major traffic losses between April 24th and April 25th, chances are Penguin is the culprit, even though Panda 3.5 came out around the same time.
Google Disavow Tool
What is the link disavow tool?
The tool allows you to disavow unnatural inbound links for a domain verified in your Google Webmaster Tools. Specifically you can ask Google to ignore links you do not control if you believe they could be harming your website’s rankings.
“If you believe your site’s ranking is being harmed by low quality links you do not control, you can ask Google not to take them into account when assessing your site.”
What are inorganic links?
Google uses links as one of their ranking signals and they want them to occur naturally. Paid links, link exchanges or other types of link manipulation are considered ‘inorganic’ or ‘unnatural’.
How did I end up with inorganic links?
You may have created some yourself or perhaps your SEO company did. In some cases even third parties can create unnatural links for you. This can happen as part of random spam / content scraping, reputation management spam or deliberate attempt at much debated concept of ‘negative SEO’.
