As most of us know or have heard with the 3 most recent changes to Google’s algorithm some of the techniques previously used by SEOs are no longer producing the same results. In fact, in most of these cases continuing to participate in such activities as link farms, spam guest posting and forth yield more damage to web property than benefit.
In some cases I’ve come across these web properties have had links built for them for quite some time resulting in extensive – but horrid – backlink profiles. With the most recent update the Penguin filter these extensive backlink profiles have caused the decline in keywords and therefore have to be remedied as soon as possible.
For those whom are unaware of procedure of removing links here’s a quick brief. Using your favourite tool like Majestic SEO you’re going to take a look at ALL the backlinks pointing towards your site. From there, without going into detail you’re going to have to differentiate the links pointing to your site that yield relevance and authority from those that don’t. Most tools provide some sort of ranking system like the trust flow and citation flow of Majestic SEO. Now that you’ve determined the set of links that need to go you can use a service like whois.net to look at the registration info for the domain and collect the email of the administrator or technical contact if they differ. You’re then to send the admin or technical contact an email request to remove the link from the URL that you will include in your email. If they don’t then we prey that Google’s disavow tool will have some impact.
As you can see it’s a pretty grueling tedious task. Imagine for a second a website with over 20,000 links of which an estimated 50% need to be removed.
Faced with a few cases like the above I decided to search for a service to help make my life a little easier. That’s when I stumbled upon Rmoov and it’s wonderful staff.
Rmoov is a backlink removal service aimed at helping those like myself get through the task of removing backlinks with more automation and less headache.
How you ask?
Rmoov has users set up backlink removal campaigns which allows for bulk uploading of URLs from a file you’ve created or exports from Google Web Master Tools. From there the service automatically pulls the domain WHOIS registration information in order to contact the owner of the domain that you want to remove. The final setup has users input the WHOIS information for the few domains that are either proxy protected or have opted out of providing an email address and input outgoing mail setting for the domain in order to send out the email requests.
Once the campaign is launched emails are immediately sent out. Depending on the length of the campaign you’ve decided on you’ll pretty much sit back and wait with the hope of seeing a flood of messages come into your Rmoov dashboard from webmasters informing they removed the link(s).
That’s one other reason why Rmoov is so damn amazing. Within the email it provides a link so that the honest Ed webmasters who do clean up links are able to report back to you with a click that they’ve removed the links you’ve requested.
Once your campaign has ended in many cases you’ll find that there are still a few links that haven’t been cleaned up. Another benefit to using the Rmoov service (yes, I know it doesn’t end) is the disavow report it generates for users once the campaign is over. This disavow report is exactly what Google is looking for. The report details the efforts you’ve made to manually remove spammy and(or) unnatural links pointing to your site and that in a few stubborn cases they haven’t been removed and you’d like them disavowed.
The above was my primary reason for using Rmoov. I almost shit myself when I contemplated the thought of having to send even 100 manual emails to spam webmasters knowing that I’d have to keep at transcript of each correspondence just in case I had to utilize the disavow tool.
THE CHERRY ON THE CAKE with Rmoov certainly lies with the amazing customer service. On quite a few occasions I’ve picked up the phone and riddled Sha with questions ranging from locating who.is information to general questions about the Rmoov service.
With the demand for link removal tools growing naturally so to will the supply; however, take it from me there’s no better service out there than Rmoov.
