Google Penalties Take FOREVER!

If you are like the thousands of webmasters who suffered from a Google Penalty (whether it was an algorithmic filter like from the Google Penguin updates or a manual action penalty), then you will know by now how frustrating it can be to play the waiting game with Google.

Even after you have done everything “by the book” according to Google’s recommendations and uploading your disavow files, waiting for Google to not count all the bad links that are hurting your rankings can be a very slow and painful process. You have a business to run and waiting for Google is just not an option any more.

Before I show you this new and advanced Link Detox Boost technology and how it can speed up the Googlebot, you need to understand that a Google Penalty can sometimes be referred to as an “automatic algorithmic filter”, or it can sometimes be a manual penalty. (Or it can be a combination of both automatic and manual.)

Google specifically advised webmasters to use the Disavow tool to clean up and disavow links that you already know are bad. This makes perfect sense because Google’s rules will change all the time. Unfortunately, it will only get worse for webmasters in the near future.

Link Risk Management: Pro-Active Disavow of Links Recommended

If you have some bad links in your profile today, and you can’t sleep because those links are hurting your search engine rankings and your business, then feel free to disavow those bad links ASAP. Matt Cutts confirmed that in a video. This describes the process of Link Risk Management that we have recommended with Link Detox® and “Round-Trip Disavow” for over a year now.

If you have uploaded your disavow file and your website traffic has not returned to its former glory, then there is a good chance that a couple things might have happened. Either the disavow process is not fully completed yet, OR not all the bad links you disavowed have been re-crawled.

This process can take a VERY long time. Uploading all of the bad links to the Google Disavow tool does work, but the time you have to wait for Google to re-crawl the bad links is painfully slow. You will probably notice that the links are never read even after waiting a full month.

Problem – Google is TOO SLOW!

This is exactly the problem. Google Disavow does not work fast unless it’s boosted.

Because even Google themselves say,

Google disavow message

https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2648487?hl=en

The important parts are highlighted above, “As we re-crawl the web”, and this “Can take a number of weeks”. Even though Google makes this statement, Google will only show 20% of the links in Google Webmaster Tools. Therefore, it’s so crucial to combine as many available data-sources in your link analysis.

Google is just Google. They have millions of crawling bots, but only millions of bots for trillions of websites; it’s obvious their resources are probably set to make high authority and trusted sites a priority.

You have to understand that Google is just a machine. Yes, it’s a very large and complex computer system programmed by humans using algorithms, but it’s still just a machine. There are priorities in every machine. And whilst Google is a large corporation, maybe the largest corporation in the world, it’s still not God.

Old News About Google Penalty Recovery?

This really isn’t news. I’m sure you have read this very same problem all over forums, comments, blog posts and videos on Search Engine Watch and Search Engine Land, and possibly in comments on the Matt Cutts video about the disavow process.

How Google Values or De-values Bad Links

One thing that is very obvious is that Google sees bad links as very low quality links, and therefore these links will be assigned low crawling resources. These are the bad links that Google might automatically filter once, and that can also cause manual actions. However, they don’t have much motivation to crawl those poor and risky links very often.

If you have a link on the homepage of Google, The BBC, Wikipedia, or Amazon, you can bet they will re-crawl that link every 5 seconds.

Dirty SEO Sins of the Past

Whether you built a lot of spammy links in the past or hired someone who has done a lot of dirty SEO work to your site (like forum profile links on some long abandoned forum or link directory), then there is a good chance that these links have a very low crawl rate. That means you will be waiting a very long time before you can see any changes in your search engine rankings.

In short, the problem is that Googlebot is lazy when it comes to re-crawling the bad links you disavowed. Googlebot is very active on high quality sites that they deem to be High Quality or High Authority, but those low quality links you added to your disavow file weren’t crawled well in the first place. If you have ever followed spammy link building practices or hired an SEO who did that to your website, then you will know what I mean.

These low quality links will not be detected until Googlebot comes around, and nobody knows “when” that will be.

Link Detox Boost

This is why we built the advanced Link Detox Boost tool to help you push the Googlebot into re-crawling the low quality links you have already asked Google to disavow.

The Googlebot needs to re-crawl these low quality links fast or else you will be waiting a very long time before you notice any changes.

And now this is something you don’t need to worry about anymore.

Introducing Link Detox Boost…

Link Detox Boost forces the Googlebot to crawl the bad links you have disavowed and value the Disavow command, telling it what links not to count towards your site anymore.

We’ve had this technology for many years and used it on our own websites and projects. This advanced and proven technology is now available to you. We even have a success story about it from our beta version.

Google Penalty Gone in 3 Days – a Link Detox Boost Success Story

If you’re thinking, “Boost sounds too good to be true”, then think again…

We have tested it time and time again, and we even recovered a website in as little as 3 days, thanks to the new Link Detox Boost. (Results may vary.)

It was an infographic site that provided a tool to easily make infographics. It also had libraries of infographics and other helpful content. It was a good site, but it received a Manual Action in September. It went from a search engine visibility of 200 to 3, which must have hurt their rankings dramatically.

They submitted their first reconsideration request after they cleaned up many follow widget links, cleaned up other page links, no-followed other links, and disavowed links.

google manual action

The next Google update came around, and their position worsened. Their site wasn’t removed from the index, but it was past page 6 in the Google SERPS. Basically, the visibility for all relevant keywords was gone.

But here’s the good news…the newly developed Beta of Link Detox Boost was used to boost all disavowed links on October 22. And guess what? On October 24, a couple days later, we saw an email from Google saying, “Your Manual Spam action has been revoked.”

reconsideration request

As you can see here, a day later, the rankings really went up. If you look at this chart below in search metrics, over the past 3 weeks it returned to where it was already. They recovered quickly after their 3rd reconsideration request. And as of writing this, 2 months later it ranks better than ever before!

Yes! Now that’s a real boost in recovery performance. More traffic than ever!

Link Detox Boost recovery

Link Detox Boost will save you a LOT of waiting time by helping you recover from your Google Penalty faster. It essentially takes away the guess work of “when” the Googlebot will come around.

This new tool is available right now in the LRT Superhero Plans and up and the Link Detox Consultant plans and up. If you already have an account with us, then you can start using the tool right now.

If you do not have an account with us, you can sign up here to start using link detox boost.

If you need to boost a lot of disavowed links, you can purchase additional Link Detox Boost credits in the application.

Link Detox Boost also works for Penguin!

UPDATE Feb 10, 2014 – we have it confirmed that Link Detox Boost also works on algorithmic penalties (filters).

The client disavowed ~40% of his links on Friday, got the Domain-wide Link Detox Risk (Domain DTOXRISK™) down to 207, ran Link Detox Boost on Monday, and had an almost instant jump of 20 positions.

FAQs

Is the Link Detox Boost driven by the disavow file?

YES. Like the whole link risk management process we introduced with “Round-Trip disavows” Link Detox Boost is driven by the disavow file that you manage between multiple runs of Link Detox. But you can also upload disavow files created manually or in third party tools.

Will Link Detox Boost be available in all plans

The Link Detox Boost will be available for Superhero, Enterprise, Link Detox Consultant, Link Detox Agency and Link Detox Enterprise accounts.

Will Link Detox Boost work if there was no manual action algorithmic penalty

UPDATE Feb 10 2014 – we have a confirmed case where Link Detox Boost help a site dropped due to Penalties right after the Link Detox Boosting. They disavowed a lot of links, waited a couple days, then boosted and quickly moved up 20 positions.

Can I use all my link data sources on boost like GWT or Majestic?

Actually we even strongly encourage you to use as many link sources and link data files you have, just like we did with Link Detox in general. Every single link counts, so upload whatever you have. Thanks to our aggregation, deduplication and verification of those files it doesn’t matter if they are years old! Yes, your link building reports you bought for cheap in 2006 from cheap labor countries will work as well.

If I had a manual action penalty removed and my traffic has not fully recovered so my site is struggling on ranking - should I use boost?

Yes. We recommend to boost all disavowed links in general, proactively and on an ongoing basis to support your link risk management.

Will the tool be available as a standalone tool?

No the Link Detox Boost is only available in the Link Detox Consultant plan and up and the LinkResearchTools Superhero plan and up.

Can Link Detox Boost work with boosting disavow file links for domains from different countries?

Yes, all of our tools work for different countries.

How fast can Link Detox Boost work? How long does it take for your new technology to boost?

In the best case a recovery took 3 days, but depending on the amount of bad links I disavowed the result could be different for me. E.g. if not enough links were disavowed Google might still not be happy after this boost.

Should I add the GWT links to the Link Detox before I boost?

Yes, make sure you upload whatever your have as link data source into Link Detox.
However, you should only boost the links that you have actually disavowed!

Should I use boost if I have received a manual penalty?

We recommend following the important genesis steps found in our help.linkdetox.com before running the Link Detox Boost. Afterwards you can create a Disavow File and upload it to Google.

When you have received the confirmation from Google and waited another 48 hours, then you can start with Link Detox Boost.

How long should I wait to run the Link Detox Boost after I have uploaded my disavow file to google?

Please wait until you have received your confirmation mail from Google that they have received your disavow file and then another 48 hours.

Is boosting too many links dangerous? Should I boost slowly or should I just boost all the links after Google has parsed the disavow file that I uploaded to Google.

You should boost all the links which you have also uploaded in your disavow file. You can boost all the links at once.

Does the boost tool also support the domain syntax?

Yes.

Can I use the Boost tool multiple times?

If you only want to check if links were crawled, you have unlimited Reprocessing for that in your reports.

For new Link Detox Boost runs (i.e. new links disavowed) you need additional credits and if you run out of credits you can buy them in the upgrade section.

How many credits does it cost to run a Link Detox Boost?

Currently you need one credit per 300 disavowed links/domains.

Therefore it’s “cheaper” to disavow on domain level (recommended for spammy domains) than on page level.

What does the Link Detox Boost guarantee?

We guarantee that we do our best to make your disavows taken into account by Google. But since we are not affiliated with Google in any way there’s no other guarantee at all.

Is there a limit on how many links can be boosted?

Technically the limit is maximum 150.000 links in one go at the moment.
Commercially it’s limited by the number of Link Detox Boost credits you have in your plan or buy as add-on credits.

Can you tell me more about what advanced technology that Boost is using.

We cannot disclose all the details but we are using the advanced methods to push the Googlebot in many ways that are not hurting any guidelines.

How long does it take to get out of Penguin 2.1?

It depends. You have to do a lot of link removal work and also upload the LINK DETOX disavow file to Google and then it is up to Google how long it takes. Please also monitor your backlinks to be sure that you will not receive new bad backlinks
However, with the new Link Detox Boost we will be able to speed up the process noticeably!

How do I know that the disavowed links I just uploaded have reached Google? Will I get an email notification? How long will I have to wait to see the result?

Google will take the disavowed links into account when they crawl them again. Unfortunately they will not provide you with a confirmation mail or email notification. So it depends when your site will get crawled again.

However we strongly recommend you to use the advanced tool Link Detox Boost to speed up the process of Google factoring in your disavow file.

Does the Google Disavow Tool only work if you submit a reconsideration request?

We assume this is a myth. The Disavow Tool confirms your upload within 24-48 hours and from then on the Google Crawlers have that information. The Link Detox Boost tool then furthermore helps get those disavow commands to the Googlebot work in faster than they used to.

When does Google take the disavowed links into account?

Unfortunately nobody knows exactly when Google takes the disavowed links into account. It can take several weeks or even months. But we have also built the Boost tool that you can use to speed up the process of Google crawling your disavowed links.

Will the Link Detox Boost get linked to the Google Webmaster Account?

It is planned; However, not necessary.

I had a site that had a manual action. I did a few rounds of link removal and disavow. The manual action was removed. Would you recommend Link Detox Boost for a disavow list from over 6 months ago? Site is still struggling on rankings.

Google has no logical reason to crawl the spam links therefore it is recommended to use the Link Detox Boost. Probably some pages are still affected by Penguin.

Do I have to wait for the next data refresh of Google to see if a link removal was successful?

No. Usually you should see effects in link building or link removing after a couple days or weeks. Of course very low quality links are only re-crawled every couple months, which could pose a problem. Use the new Link Detox Boost to be better safe than sorry and waiting.

Quick question for LinkBoost: Do you have to enter all the individual URLs, or does it also work on domain level, for example: domain: xyz.com?

domain is sufficient

What if the link I disavowed is still on the linking page? Does it make a difference how quick google revisits the page/poor link if the link is still there?

Ideally we want the bad link gone, but practically that can be difficult. Please make sure you have uploaded the disavow file to Google Webmaster Tools, got confirmation and waited at least 48 hours before starting Boost.

    You might want to check onsite issues aswell..

    The main thing is to keep promoting and building links but only high quality and authoritative sites, use branding and plain urls, tread lightly with keywords, especially if you have previously disavowed. There are quite a few articles on this.

    Do a complete audit of your site then start a fresh, it will come back but can take time depending on your knowledge and commitment.

    Hi Christoph,

    How does this work with extreme examples of the worst types of link spam. For example, if one has LOTS of bad links from hundreds of subdomains on hundreds of free webhosts. As we disavow at the domain level for these sites, how can we be sure that the right pages will be re-crawled.

    reply
    • Christoph C. Cemper December 17, 2013

      Hi Jan

      we have clients that handle thousands and thousands of SPAM links, and in fact the case study mentioned above had to disavow thousands too, many of them from what we think was a Negative SEO attack.

      Link Detox Boost works perfect with Domain Disavows (domain: command) and
      actually we recommend using the domain: over single url disavows, based on recommendations from Google’s Matt Cutts himself and experiences from our Certified LRT Professional and Xpert network as well as some really high profile SEOs.

      So, we’ve got you covered :-)
      Link Detox Boost works!

      Best, Christoph

    Cristoph,

    This is an exciting new tool and I appreciate your sharing this with the public.

    I would like to voice my viewpoint that long-time clients who are members at a lower subscription level are not being treated ideally. Many of us have been working for a long time with LRT to alleviate the impact of a manual penalty or algorithmic penalty. Knowing that there is a tool available to help that is prohibitively costly for a small business is frustrating.

    I wish that you would ‘reconsider’ the availability of this tool for longer-term subscribers.

    reply
    • Christoph C. Cemper December 18, 2013

      Hi Brian,

      thanks for your feedback. I am glad we got it out finally.

      I understand your view, but please let me emphasize that we have been adding premium features to the premium plans for the last four years only, so it’s no different here.

      If you want to utilize the full power of LRT you NEED a Superhero,
      and all Certified LRT Professionals we recommend are using Superheros only,
      because it’s the complete functionality, power, detail and speed.

      Another question – How much is months of still losing traffic worth to you?

      I believe if your business depends on Google rankings our pricing is still a manageable investment you have decide on for good, just like you do for good employees or good accountant for example.

      Our long-term Superhero subscribers actually already benefit hugely from our subscription-grandfathering, getting their Superhero at the much lower rate when they signed up years ago when LRT was really only 4 or 5 tools, not 20 like we have now.

      Best regards,
      Christoph

      reply
      • Tony December 19, 2013

        Hi Christoph. Love your tools but sorry, but I don’t buy the argument here. The pricing plan looks like the cable system is here in the US – you have to pay a lot to get one or 2 channels you really need – the rest doesn’t get used. And guess what? people are moving away from cable because its seen as unfair business practice.

        You may not be interested in the smaller market but my bet is there are plenty of folks out there who would pay a premium for your boost tool after they already used Genesis, but will never upgrade to a higher level as it is simply overkill (and way too expensive). It just doesn’t seem fair to offer (and charge for) a tool like Genesis, then not allow regular folks paying their mortgage from their internet business to be able to reach the Boost product to really make their investment in Genesis pay off.

        Why not charge a one-time fee to access the Boost product?

        Respectfully,
        Tony

          Hey Tony,

          couldn’t find your account via that Yahoo mail, but thank you so much for the praise.

          Love the comparison with cable plans, b/c that’s exactly how it is.

          If you are happy watching soaps with ad blocks every 15 minutes the cheap plans are fine. If you don’t worry about waiting months for broadcast of a small recap of some sports event – cool too.

          But, if you e.g. want that _one_ channel, e.g. HBO to watch premium shows and blockbusters or sports events live in HD and 3D and whatnot,
          it’s all about that one channel, any yes, I pay a premium only for that one channel. And a lot of other people do too.

          Because guess what, just like with links it’s once again not about quantity but quality. Getting the premium plan is not overkill but actually highly recommended for anyone serious about his online business.

          I’ve been giving away Link Detox for free for the first 8 months, so I think that was more than fair and I understand that some people thought that we could go on and give away stuff for free forever, but guess what, we cannot.

          Best, Christoph

I am currently waiting for a reply with my fingers firmly crossed. If I get the best Christmas present ever (penalty revoked) how soon after should I try Boost?

  12. Ingo Schaer January 19, 2014

    We have submitted a reconsideration request 2 days after boost came out and boosted 1500 domains – All domains where selected disavowed + boosted by an LRT certified agency. Today – we received a message from Google that our site still violates Googles guidelines and that our site still has unnatural links.

    I am disappointed and i don’t think the Boost tools works. I even had to pay $400 more to be able to boost all the 1500 domains due to more credits needed. Link Detox Boost was just a waste of money and did not work for me.

    reply
  13. Dean Bailey January 22, 2014

    So has this worked for anyone on here that has actually paid for the boost?

    If I’m honest ‘Snake Oil’ springs to mind since we know very little about ‘Boost’ technically. Non the less we’ve given it a go for a client (we’re 2 days in and no disavowed links have currently been crawled) and we’ll be the first to shout about it if we see any improvement within a reasonable timescale.

    We do think the Detox tool is excellent though but are sorry to see that we can’t buy additional credits and have to sign up for a monthly account. On top of Moz this makes SEO very expensive for a small agency. We’ll just be dipping in and out as we require for our clients.

    reply
  14. Christoph C. Cemper January 22, 2014

    We are aware that removing a penalty is a hard and time-consuming process.

    While boosting will speed up the whole disavow process for Google, it can still have many reasons why the Link Detox Boost does not work as expected for a penalty in a specific case.

    You need to look into your link profile in more detail to find the answers.

    -Do you have disavowed enough bad links? How does your Link Detox Risk score look like?

    - Have you disavowed all risky and suspicious links? Quite often people disavow too few links because they want to hold on to stronger links that cost them a lot in the past… wrong way

    -Did you upload your WMT file and other backlink source files in the Link Detox report to be sure that no links get lost?

    -Have you received more bad backlinks in the last days or weeks? Please re-run your Link Detox to be sure or start a Link Alert. Could be a negative SEO issue or simply forgotten to upload GWT link data

    -Have you disavowed domains or pages? It is recommended to disavow the domains.

    -Have you boosted all URLs which you have disavowed?

    -Have all links been re-crawled already?

    -Do you have enough good backlinks to rank again?

    -Do you have any unnatural tops in your link profile, even when you clean up your report? Start a CLA report for checking it.

    Please Note: Currently the display of the Link Detox Crawl Date in Link Detox Boost is broken, but we are working to fix this problem with high priority. But please don’t worry, the boost still works. It needs approximately 72 hours until a URL gets crawled again.

    If you wish to get informed when the Google Crawl Date display works again, please write a message to our helpdesk, they will be happy to inform you.

    If you are unsure about the Link Detox Boost, and if you have any questions about it, you can also get in contact with our Helpdesk. We would be glad to answer all your questions and support you with completing your Link Detox Boost.

    TL:DR – Link Detox Boost speeds up the discovery process and working in Disavows faster, but if it’s not enough disavowed, it’s not enough.

    Hello Christopher

    I have a site that looks to be hit with both PANDA & PENGUIN with the
    Decline in SERPS

    There us NO warning in WMT

    We are working on cleaning all the links up, adding new content as is some very thin pages, and some social media.

    Would this be good for an Algo Filter/Penalty ?

    And do you think I should submit a re-inclusion request even though I have no notice in WMT its a pretty big site.

    Thanks
    James

    • Christoph C. Cemper February 19, 2014

      James

      if you don’t have a warning it’s an algorithmic thing.

      You mention a couple onsite-actions, so I assume you dropped around
      typical panda updates (also)?

      Have you processed a full link detox with all your GWT data since the Genesis in November? If not, do it today.

    Hi Christoph,

    Can you please clarify something, and I’m asking this from the point of view of a Penguin penalty only, no manual penalty?

    You say “The Googlebot needs to re-crawl these low quality links fast or else you will be waiting a very long time before you notice any changes.” but what does re-crawling a page that still contains a link to your site have to do with getting the disavow file valued more quickly?

    How do you know that the algorithm requires the page you list in your disavow file to be crawled before it includes it as ‘disavowed’ for the purpose of ranking?

    Could it be possible that the disavow file is simply taken at face value i.e. I say ‘ignore this link’ it says ‘ok’. Why should it have to re-crawl a page where it isn’t going to find any change just for it to say ‘ok’?

    It just doesn’t make sense to me…but then I’m no SEO.

    I’d like to understand why you’re so sure this is the process the disavow file and algorithm take.

    Also, the example you cite as proof Boost works for Penguin simply says they saw an improvement of 20 spots but it doesn’t say which spot they’re in now. I could be an improvement from 40 to 20, which is not as good as from 25 to 5, and could quite possibly be caused by other factors. I think this example is a bit light on details. Are you able to follow up with them for more information and to find out if their improvement has continued/improved/worsened and where are they ranked now compared to pre-Boost?

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    Jane.

    Do I file my disavow then the reconsideration then boost? or disavow boost reconsideration?

    I bought a domain, and It got google Penalties. I checked backlink itself by backlink checker tool. It haven’t in google webmaster. And I used Disavow to remove all backlink. But nothing change.
