Has your website been affected by a Google Penalty?
Have you received a warning email from Google, or your rankings have dropped to nowhere?
We have helped many webmasters to get their online business back on track by removing the penalty.
What Type of Penalties are there?
Google issues penalties to sites that fall into 2 categories in general. Either the site is using unnatural linking practices to gain an advantage in the rankings. Or, the website design and/or content offers no real value to users. There are a number of penalties that can be applied to your site, however, the most common have been named Penguin and Panda, which are algorithmic penalties. A Manual Penalty can also be applied when a human (who works for Google) sees an issue with your site.
These penalties are generally noticed when the traffic going to your site declines significantly. In the case of a Manual Penalty, you may also receive an email about it.
What to do about a Penalty?
Receiving a penalty from Google can be devastating. The amount of lost revenue can be huge. Therefore it’s important to get started on the removal and recovery ASAP. The first step towards recover involves identifying the type or types of penalty that Google has placed on you. We use various tools and methods to do this.
The second step involves correcting the issue that is causing the problem. This is generally the complicated and time-consuming part. Depending upon the type & severity of the penalty, this can take anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months.
Next we re-submit your site to Google for their reconsideration. If all goes well, Google will lift their penalty and your rankings begin to return. At this point we recommend ongoing SEO works to ensure a full recovery, and to ensure there are no further issues.
