I have got a message from google webspam team like 6 months ago about Unatural links that has been discovered in our link profile.
Since then i have massivley tried to remove links and with each reconsideration request I send I have got declined.
They wrote that they still are able to see links that are not following google guidlines...
we really took masive actions like:
- Downloading the entire link profile from sevral sources <snip>
- Going manually over the links and contacting low quality websites and asking them to remove links. those that didn't replied back were included in the list of links to disavow via google tool.
* This job (for each reconsideration request) requried hiring a special team to go a link by link (approximately 3000 unique domains) to determine if they are good or not. (meterics were: overall website design (its looking like a real site?) , content quality, link position, link is looking natural?)
We did this over and over (4 times with a month difference between each request).
The last one was 2 weeks ago, I used a tool/service <snip> to determine if links are good or not and kept only those
that were showing as safe. and still got this message that they are able to see some links that are not following the rules.
The situation now is that i'm removing and removing links and i'm afraid I will stay without any links to support my rankings?
what strategy do I need to take? to stop sending the reconsideration requests and start getting links backs (safe way)? or to keep trying to remove this manual penalty?
I really need my rankings back and don't want to waste time and money by also removing good links and keep sending reconsideration requests until i'm staying without any links...
I will really appreciate your share of thoughts with my situation here, thanks!
