Don’t turn your back on links! What is a good link, what is a bad link?
At one time link building couldn’t harm your website organic rankings but as Google algorithmic updates being rolled out yearly Google Penguin 1.0. 2.0 and 3.0 have changed all that.
Now if you want to keep your website in the safe zone it is vital that you go and look back at your historic inbound links as well.
Maybe you’ve been really really good and not received a manual penalty notification in your Google Webmaster Tools account but that doesn’t mean your safe. You see in the last 12 months alone Google has started to penalise websites that have inbound links that don’t appear to be natural or have been posted just to manipulate search engine rankings.
Penalised by old links
Sitting back and just hoping you won’t get hit at any time with an automated algorithmic penalty or manual action isn’t what you should be doing. You need to audit all inbound links and also outbound links. We have seen data to support outbound links from your site can cause problems of their own. For example if like many you use WordPress and you have plugins on there that give links back to the programmer or website you downloaded it from this can also contravene Google’s strict guideline policies.
