Google Penguin 3.0 launched

WARNING: 16,523 Toxic Links on Sale at ThinkBizSolutions.com

I’m proud to present our fourth Penguin 2.1 case study, written by our Certified LRT Professional, Guntram Bechtold, who is the Lead Associate at StarsMedia.com!

This case study will look into a top SEO and Online Marketing Services company located in India – thinkbizsolutions.com. Guntram takes a different approach in this case study by analyzing the client list of Think Business Solutions. It is amazing to see an SEO Agency actually putting their own clients into Penguin penalties. Take a look for yourself and see what kind of SEO scams still exist today. And make sure you follow Guntram’s recommendations on avoiding and getting rid of Penguin 2.1

We look forward to your feedback and always appreciate you sharing the work of our Certified LRT Professionals ;)

Looking closer at a link selling scam from India.

I regularly get unsolicited E-mails, you can also call it SPAM, to my personal Business E-Mailadress. On the 21st of October, I received the following E-Mail from ThinkBizSolutions.com offering me “Ethical SEO” to increase the rankings of my website.

original-email

Looking a little bit deeper, the Vendor sent me an offer and instantly added a 25% rebate. Not necessarily very trustworthy to send an offer plus 25% rebate on the first e-mail. The tactic reminds me of us car dealers, that give you back $500 (http://usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/cars-trucks/best-car-deals/Toyota-Deals/) when you buy a new Toyota.

The Product Packages

Back to Think Business Solutions, I checked out their Packages. Their products give the impression that you get a lot of everything, because the vendor has no clue what the client needs. The Packages are a basket full of SEO Magic. From Onpage Optimization, to Social Media, Usability and Linkbuilding.

The Fact that you get half your money back if Toprankings are not reached within 6 Months is an interesting claim: "In Case we fail to show improvement we will refund 50% of the Money. This applies on Silver, Gold & Platinum Packages only.”

Find out yourself which of customers below are eligible of that claim.

Looking at the Links

From the 44 Clients presented as success stories at Think Business Solutions, several aspects were relevant to be checked:

What is their current success?

Are the rankings high, or were their projects hit by google penguin 2.0, penguin 2.1, and the humming bird algorithm update? This factor can be measured by applying the Sistrix visibility index or the search metrics visibility index. Both Services analyze search engine rankings from all over the world. Sistrix is analyzing 10 Billion Pages per month and tracks rankings for more several million top keywords worldwide. If a site has significant ranking, it should show up in Sistrix SI index or Search metrics Visibility index.

What is their Link profile?

Do these clients have common patterns? How do the “winners” look like, and is their success settled on a solid basis and long lasting? What about the losers: Do they have many links in common? Are there footprints visible? The thing that concerns me the most is Link graph health. So we checked the “Successful Case Studies of Clients” – During the study I thought we should rather call them Victims, but see for yourself.

Grouping the Clients into “Success Categories”

Grouping the Sites into five categories: PRE-Penguin 2.0 Drop, Penguin 2.0 Drop, Penguin 2.1 Drop, No Drop, Recovered from Penguin.

  1. PRE-Penguin 2.0 Drop are all sites that lost ranking before 24. April 2013. Many of these Sites were hit by Penguin 1.1 on May 25, 2012.
  2. Penguin 2.0 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Penguin) Drop are all sites that were hit by the update on 24. April 2013.
  3. Penguin 2.1 Drop occurred on October 4, 2013
  4. No Drop would be that the site that was not affected by these updates.
  5. Recovered from Penguin are sites that were obviously hit but later regained rankings

PRE-Penguin 2.0 Drop

Short time rankings

Several sites got very short time rankings resulting from heavy and toxic link building.

www.melbournefooddistributors.com.au built links, ranked, and got crushed

melbournefooddistributors

www.hongye.com.sg picked up links, ranked, and got terminated within weeks.

hongye

www.casasecurity.com.au had the shortest possible ranking period

casasecurity

After building some links, www.pfd-nz.com had a short time ranking in early 2013, and then getting terminated instantly

pfd-nz

www.bankruptcyattorneytucson.com – In terms of SEO-Success, it appears that this business is its own best client. The linkbuilding tactics worked only for a short period of time. After January 2012, the site was practically invisible for people searching for that company on google

bankruptcyattorneytucson

www.trainingboxgym.com had a short time of raking after the links were built, and was terminated days later by google

trainingboxgym

Step by step intoxication for larger sites

Several sites got intoxicated step by step from bad links. They started well and then lost track step by step.
The more links were added, the worse it got.

www.extremeoutdoorsupply.com is possibly the site that suffered the hardest losses due to their seo activities. They had acceptable rankings until early 2012, then got really crushed by google

martx

www.wildlifeafrica.co.za had nice rankings in 2011, beginning of 2012, and dropped from there

wildlifeafrica

Penguin 2.0 Drop

www.24trauma.com is possibly the perfect name for what this site experienced from early 2013 to penguin 2.0. Started out well and then…

24trauma

www.northrydedentists.com.au got some links, gained rankings, was penalized, added more links, and was penalized more

northrydedentists

www.dial91.com got unranked by penguin 2.0

www.idating4you.com was hit hard during penguin 2.0

www.apollogatemotor.com had only very limited rankings during penguin 2.0, yet they are fully gone with penguin 2.1

apollogatemotor

www.sydneyeventphotography.com.au had a short time of visibility at first through link building, and then lost practically all rankings permanently

www.barbermall.com had relevant rankings until Penguin 2.0, and then really lost with google penguin 2.1 update

www.merlebari.com

merlebari

vokuz

Current TOX Levels

The first thing after looking at the Visibility is to take a look at the LRT DTOX Level. I’ve categorized 100% of both Keyword sets, since this is the best way to get a valid result. By manually reviewing every single anchor text, you begin to understand how the link graph is really set up.

Barbermall.com got a whopping DTOX Link Risk of 5325 and 312 top headed links. That’s quite a lot, when looking at the small number of Link and the high detox.

Barbermall

Yet equally poisoned is matsd.com with a Link Risk of 4027, yet just 167 top headed domains. This site has significantly more bad neighborhoods than the other site, since only around the half of links were pointed to the domain, yet almost 80% of the risk was built up. Lets look a bit closer.

matsd

Yet even during Anchor text characterization, some things appeared strange:

matsd

matsd-2

And it even gets better:

cialis

So there are quite some shady anchor texts around.

Analyse the Google Link-network Footprint

How are Link networks identified? To uncover a Link network it is critical to find sites that got similar, suspicious links. This so called Neighbourhood indicates how reputable a site is.

LRT_Study_ThinkBusinessSol

In our Case, a total of 43 of all 44 Projects have 135 Links in Common. That’s huge, considering most sites in this case study don’t have many more links than that.

To analyze this, I’ve used the Common Backlink Tool (CBLT) and added all Domains to the tool. In my test, I’ve analyzed 22 Sites.

Neuer-CBLT-Report-2

In this result Screen, you see that I have selected all Domains that got a link to all 22 Sites in Total.

Neuer-CBLT-Report-2

Lets check Some Link sources

Looking at some Pages, it’s obvious that these are seo directories of lowest quality, or as Matt Cutts would call it, “Pure Spam”.

Even worse is the fact that the sites are obviously selling links – at least there is a strong indication towards that, since average site owners rarely do side-wide links for casino pages. The variety of topics and the keyword-phrased titles add weight to the penguin penalty of these sites.

Bookmark-Gratis

This Link network makes two facts crystal clear:

  1. Every single Customer of TBS is in bad neighborhood and therefor gets penalized.
  2. Every future Customer of Think Business Solution is doomed to penguin penalty.

Vendor Links his Clients into Penalty

Even worse is the fact that TBS is dipping each new client manually into this link network penalty by linking all case studies as showcases from their website. 44 Clients with one shot.

Competitive Link DTOX

Let’s take a look behind the scenes: 11 Sites and their Lind Detox Risk Levels

CDTox_Top10

We see in CDTOX that there is a significant leap towards brand and money keywords. Practically none of the candidates have compound or other keyword anchor texts. What we see as well is that the sites are very close, due to the fact that they all have almost the same link graph.

CDTox_Top10

From the Metrics Comparison by Detox, we see that more than 50% of all links are toxic for the 10 analyzed sites.

CDTox_Top10_3

When looking into the Detox Risk, we see that around 50% of all Links are deadly and 30% least moderate Risk.

CDTox_Top10_4

Toxic Link Examples

During the Case study, a hand full of evil link sources surfaced.

  1. Blog posts
  2. Directory
  3. Profile Spam
  4. Mega Link Pages
  5. Blog Comment Spam
  6. Voting Directory Spam

BLOG POSTS

Random Blog posts on random sites, scattered around the web, on various topics.
At least in this case the male author got an interesting profile image.
http://www.indyarocks.com/profile/6722195/Robo-Hits-

Blog_posts

DIRECTORY SPAM

Typical, old fashioned directory spam like addurladdsite.com
http://www.addurladdsite.com/Search/keyword/restorative%20dental%20treatments

SEO_Directory

PROFILE SPAM

At least this admin talks about things he should have been doing ever before starting to blog.
http://www.alphasigmaphi.us/author/admin

Admin_Page

MEGA LINK PAGES

This Mega Link Page with 2160 Links on a single html file is definitely no place you want to have your site linked from
http://www.cbel.com/telecommunications_equipment/

Megalinkpage

BLOG COMMENT SPAM AND PAYED LINKS

Blog Comment Spam with paid links inside the blog post
http://blog.loveintros.com/2010/03/conservative-nature-of-the-colombian-women-1.html

Comment_Spam

AUTO GENERATED PAGES

Even hands full of automatically generated pages are part of the think business solution’s link horror show. http://mainstreamnewz.com/hd/index.php?t=implants%20tooth%20bridge

Autogenerated_Pages

VOTING SPAM

Digg has been closed decades ago, yet voting directory spam appears still fashionable
http://berbagaipilihan.com/

Autogenerated_Pages

Bonus Material Number One:

During the research I’ve found the “ultimate SEO Blog Spam Scam”.
I’ve found Blog Spam for “Link removal Services” pointing to a Site that is claiming to defeat Penguin Penalties within a Network of sites that will actually make you take a nose-dive deep into a Penguin Penalty.
See for yourself: The Blog post is talking about Link removal. Please take a minute or two and read the text. It’s nothing less than hilarious.

Link_Removal

Pointing to this site:

RankDefence

Managed by Canada Company “Webryze”

webryze

I would not suggest contacting Webrzye, unless you want to run into a penguin filter.

webryze

If you are Scion Automobiles, Walker Exhaust Systems, Carpages.ca, zencart, RBC Insurance or Novotel Hotels you should consider to not talk to Usaf Sami Ghumman about Seo.

Bonus Material Number Two

US Republicans managed to get a grip on SEO during their fight against the Obama Healthcare plan. Too bad that they used a bad SEO company that not only intoxicated a whole bunch of SMBs on nose dive course. At least their 1200 word long seo text with no information is massive. The Link block in the middle of the article is equally massive.
http://www.alphasigmaphi.us/obama-health-care

ChamberOfCommerce

Too bad that some of these Businesses have been paying their fees to the chamber of commerce in Virginia

Take Aways:

From this Case study I’ve compiled the following take aways for my personal usage:

  1. A broken SEO Strategy can get worse with more bad SEO.
  2. Getting tons of online marketing services is not necessarily a good thing.
  3. Fast gain most likely leads to fast fail in seo
  4. Sites with bad links, like northrydedentists got instant success and instant failure
  5. Cheap links are typically bad links
  6. Easy links are typically bad links
  7. Once inside… a network is really killer dangerous
  8. When looking at SEO and Link building firms, ask for examples

Problems sorted by Priority

  1. Bad Link building
  2. See Point 1

Recommendations to avoid Penguin 2.1 from External Services

  1. Check your SEO Agency
  2. Double Check your SEO Agency
  3. Make sure they respect white hat SEO Rules and know about clean link building
  4. Make sure they avoid Link Networks
  5. Make sure they watch Ratios: Avoid a high number of Money KW Anchors
  6. Use Brand and Noise terms in Anchor Texts
  7. Never Buy Links
  8. Detox your site at least once a Month to stay up to date
  9. Activate E-mail notification for new links to see what is going on

    Hi

    Great informative article very valuable reading for anyone thinking about hiring an outside SEO firm. I am taking up the superhero account at the end of the month when i have time work through it all.

    Was a bit thoughtful about you giving away 16,000 toxic links. Can these be used for negative seo? Is this a good thing.

    • Guntram Bechtold January 15, 2014

      Hello Ron,

      Yes, technically this would be possible. On the other hand, you can see if any of These Links get back to your Website using the LRT and DTOX Tools. So if you would be affected, you can managed this using professional Tools.

      Best regards,
      Guntram

    Aloha, My name is Anthony Calleja I was looking to see if any one would like to use my sites as a case study. I have a total of 6 sites.

    I use to have 174 first place ranking in google and about 550 visitors to my sites daily. Those numbers have dropped significantly and I am trying to see what recommendations you might have. I built all of my websites myself. Made some major changes to them in the last moth or so. They seem to be making a coming back. Thanks for your time.
    Look forward to your reply. Have a Great Day. Peace and Aloha, Anthony

      Hello Anthony,

      There are two ways that come to my mind instantly:
      1.) All LRT Certified Professionals do offer this detoxation as product. Ask any one of us, or contact the Team at cemper.com to help you find an Expert.

      2.) If you got a really outstanding Project, we can consider doing this a public casestudy. In this case, please get back to me: Please use the Contact form at StarsMedia.com and send us a message. I can take a look at it and talk to the Management at LRT what is possible.

      Best regards,
      Guntram

No other tool gives me that broad view on link data and it's getting better with every release they make. If you're serious about link building then you HAVE to use LinkResearchTools!

LinkResearchTool's unorthodox approach to link analysis will absolutely blow your mind! I've been using LRT since the Private Beta, and it has literally saved my link building team thousands of man hours pouring over link data. LinkResearchTools help us focus on links that really make a difference.
