Recently Google announced their disavow feature for Google Webmasters. It’s a tricky situation you might find yourself in if you have to deal with that. Cleaning up old bad links can be tedious and time consuming. Sometimes even expensive, but don’t despair. There are ways to do it and as this case study shows, it can be done.
It takes hard work and sometimes you just have to pony up some money and resources to get the job done. After all, if your site got deranked significantly you are probably loosing money from that action. Take some time and clean it up and eventually if you do it right GWT will remove the penalty.
Hard work pays off…
Like clockwork, 4 weeks later my site’s penalty had been revoked. It’s been nothing but a new traffic and qualified leads party since then, and if it wasn’t for Majestic I’d still be stuck at the penalty pity party.
