First, we have to assess if you have been either algorithmically filtered or if you have an actual manual penalty.
Algorithmically filtered means you’re not getting good results in Google anymore because Google doesn’t like the low-quality links pointing at you and are “punishing you” for it in a behind-the-scenes/programmatic kind of way.
When you are manually penalized, they’re telling you directly in a notification to stop doing what you’re doing.
Both are bad, and sometimes can take months or longer to recover. In fact, we’ve seen clients who had been blogging three times a day who were not seeing any additional gains in their traffic because of the lead weight of the Panda or Penguin penalty holding them down.
Therefore, it’s absolutely critical that you take immediate action, or no amount of content marketing will solve your SEO problems.
It’s very common for customers to come to us who had no idea that their SEO company or a competitor was sending bad back links to them. If that’s your situation, you’re not alone, but you still need to correct the problem.
We can do all of the steps listed in the FAQ section below on how to recover from a Google Penguin penalty and more.
If you’ve been manually panelized, we’ll try a minimum of three times to plead your case to Google with a high-quality letter to them and work with you to take the steps necessary to correct what’s causing the problem.
Our most recent manual penalty case was removed after just one honest letter to Google that included all of the work we did to correct the problem.
