What Is A Google Penalty?

A Google penalty is when a websites search rankings and traffic drop due to an update in Google’s algorithms or failing a manual review from the search team. This often has devastating effects on traffic, sales & revenue-

If your search traffic looks like this:

Then you probably have a penalty!

The 2x Types Of Google Penalty

There are 2x distinct types of penalty that you could be suffering from – manual or algorithmic.  Each of these require a different strategy or combinations of strategies to fix them but this is how they work-

Manual Penalties:

A manual penalty happens when a Google employee from the search quality or webspam team has decided to take manual action against your business.  These are the types of manual penalties you can suffer from-

When Google detects a pattern of unnatural or manipulative backlinks pointing to your website-

When Google finds spammy or manipulative links on your site pointing to other sites-

When Google finds lots of spam content that has been submitted by visitors in comments or forums for example-

When Google detects that your website has been hacked and you have outstanding security issues-

When Google detects pages of your site have spammy content. This is often scraped content or random gibberish-

When Google detects that you are using structured data and rich snippets in a spammy or manipulative way-

When Google has detected a series of low quality pages on your site that offer little to no value-

When Google detects that your website is showing a different version of the site to Google’s crawlers than humans-

When your showing Google’s crawlers different images than what humans would see-

When your website redirects mobile users to other content that is not available to Google’s crawlers-

Algorithmic Penalties:

Google’s search results are powered by an algorithm or mathematical equation to decide your place in the search results.  These types of penalties are triggered by that equation rather than a human and there are 2x major algorithmic penalties we worry about-

GOOGLE PANDA PENALTY

Google Panda was originally launched in 2011 but has become part of the core algorithm recently and targets things like-

  • Thin content - pages with little to no value
  • Duplicate content - content that was copied from elsewhere
  • Ad/content ratio - pages that have lots of ads but little content

GOOGLE PENGUIN PENALTY

Google Penguin was launched in 2012 and devastated thousands of websites. Since then it's become part of the core algorithm targeting-

  • Link farms - detecting & peanlising manipulative links
  • Spammy links - created on low quality websites/content
  • Anchor text - detects unnatural patterns of anchor text

Analysis & Technical SEO Audit

The first thing we do before anything else is to spend time understanding the problem through manual analysis and a complete technical SEO audit to reveal the full extent of the problems we need to solve.

Forming A Plan Of Attack

Once we have isolated all of the problems, we will put together a custom plan of attack to remove the penalty.  This will be your “blueprint” for recovery that we will use to guide us through the penalty removal process.

Execution & Implementation

Next we will work through the plan of attack together to execute and implement all of the solutions we have listed.  These will be prioritized with the most important problems getting solved first.

Any questions? Read our FAQ

If you have had either-

  • A sharp drop in search traffic
  • A steady drop in search traffic

Then it is possible you have a penalty.

If you are not sure it would be best one of our search specialists review your site.

This is an open ended question that has a number of variables depending on what penalty and problems your site has.

Recovery can happen as quick as a couple of weeks up to a year – it really depends on the extent of your problems.

Please get in touch with us and one of our search specialists will be able to give you a better estimation.

It is morally and ethically wrong of any SEO professional to promise specific results.
 
While we have a great track record of removing search penalties for our clients – it’s important to remember that we are always at the mercy of Google.
 
So rather than selling you on promises or expectations that have no real foundation – the only thing we can ethically do is to show you the results we have delivered for other people.
 
Please feel free to browse through our case studies and testimonials to see what results we have being able to deliver to other clients that had previous search penalties.

In order for us to present a fairly priced service for everyone, we don’t have much wiggle room when it comes to pricing.

However we can certainly discuss your requirements if you have more than 1 site that has a penalty.

To make sure we find everything that is holding you back, we check hundreds of different on-page SEO elements across a range of categories including-

  • Index management
  • Site structure
  • Internal linking
  • Content
  • Backlinks
  • Website speed

No stone is left unturned as we hunt down every SEO problem that is causing your penalty and traffic drops.

All we need is temporary access to your Google Analytics and Search Console accounts (if you have them).

You can do this by adding us as a user to your account which you can then remove once we have completed the report.

There is not a single SEO or service on the planet that can give you a guarantee technically, ethically or morally.

The reason for that is we are all at the mercy of Google.

And even though we have a solid track record of recovering people’s search traffic – that doesn’t change the simple fact that we, you and every SEO on the planet is at Googles mercy.

But what we do guarantee is that-

  • We are honest, upfront and realistic
  • We are present, available and contactable
  • We are focused on delivering tangible results
  • We employ some of the worlds most intelligent SEO’s
  • We are fueled by data, intelligent decision and hard work
  • We have decades of experience & success
  • We are here to help you

Unfortunately no (although you might like our one time audit service)

Why?

Because we know precisely how long it takes to recover a penalised site.

We are committed to delivering results but we know what it takes to deliver those results and at what cost.

The only way we could offer a discount is by sacrificing on the quality of the service which we are not willing to do.

If you have a penalty – no amount of link building is going to help you.

If you want to increase your search traffic you need to build a solid foundation that Google loves first.

When we did offer a link building only service it was very rare to see sites that had done that and people did not want to hear about boring things like on page SEO.

All they cared about was how many links we would build a month and that is a very naive approach to take because SEO is so much more than link building.

We also noted that the clients that had the best results, were the clients that gave us full control of their SEO.

So we decided to stop offering our link building only service to focus on delivering results rather than “number of links” built.

Don’t worry!
