Below you will find the steps that we follow get rid of the unknown and give your site the highest possible chance of getting restored search traffic.
Step 1 – Diagnose The Penalty
Diagnosing the problem should always be the first step when recovering a penalty. It is critical to figure out the kind of penalty that is impacting the web site, such as a Penguin penalty, a Panda penalty, or a manual penalty.
A manual penalty is the easiest to pinpoint, because the owner of the website finds out about them through a notification in their Google Webmaster Tools, which is found by going to Search Traffic, and then Manual Actions. However, Penguin and Panda penalties are more difficult to pinpoint.
A drop in search traffic that is organic over a short time period typically points to penguin penalties. A drop in traffic is also seen in Panda penalties, but they may become obvious as traffic declines over a longer duration of time. Obviously, Penguin and Panda penalties can be easier detected if the drop in traffic correlates with a major Penguin or Panda update.
Step 2 – Penalty Remediation Plan
After the type of penalty affecting a webs site has been diagnosed, Logic Inbound develops a complex plan for remediation. This plan lays out the steps that we feel are necessary to take in order to get rid of the penalty.
This process may also include disavowal and/or removal of backlinks. It also may involve reversing major changes to the website’s content, such as removing content or adding content.
