Google announced last year Google that they will release version 4.0 which they’re calling the ‘real-time’ Penguin Algorithm. This update will undoubtedly affect the performance of websites rankings and organic search traffic on Google.
Essentially any websites with bad/poor/spammy links could see demotion a lot quicker than before (real-time updating). Equally, anyone who takes steps to address and remove these links as well as those who build good quality links into their website will see promotions quicker than before.
More information on the algorithm update can be read here on this post and others on Search Engine Land – http://searchengineland.com/preparing-penguin-make-sure-youre-penalty-free-2016-235834
As mentioned above, the new release of Google’s Real-time Penguin 4.0 will start to see demotions and promotions of websites and their rankings according to whether they have bad/poor links linking into their website.
The effect of this could severely impact businesses that rely on organic search as a main channel for brand awareness, traffic and sales or leads.
As a result it’s vital that you have your backlink profile analysed and any bad links removed or disavowed with Google (getting Google to disregard back links). It’s also important that you get good quality, relevant links coming into your website.
The following process should be deployed by anyone who has a website:

Rob has been working in digital marketing since 2005 and has helped many UK and international clients improve their sales, return and overall ROI through digital marketing channels.
The Odyssey New Media team have just completed one of their most largest and most in-depth ?backlink analysis? and ?disavow? file compilations to date.
We were were approached to perform a link analysis and disavow for one of our client’s websites. Our client’s website had accumulated over 1700+ domains and 14,700+ ?backlinks? but had ever had their link profile analysed throughout the lifetime of the website.
From analysing their top-level link profile using our software, we suspected that back in 2010-11 they suffered what seems to be a link penalty. Although never confirmed by Google via Google Webmaster Tools, we strongly suspected this was the case from doing manual spot-checks on their backlinks. We discussed this with the client and it was agreed that the entire backlink profile needed analysis and any poor/harmful links needed to be disavowed with Google.
Over the past month or so our dedicated team of SEO specialists have been manually analysing every site as well as individual backlinks to see if their backlinks were worth keeping. As a result we found that over 90% of their links we’re poor, irrelevant or harmful to their performance. These links are now in review with the client and then the link disavow file will be submitted. If we see successful uplift from this on their SEO rankings we will report this on a follow-up post.
In any case any website that accumulates links and has never had a link profile analysis is running the risk of picking up poor, irrelevant and potentially harmful links.
The SEO link analysis, backlink removal and disavow link detox service we undertake includes:
If you’ve never had your backlink profile analysed, make sure you do, there could be bad links holding your website ?SEO? ?rankings? back.
