Does your website reside in a bad neighborhood? (Part 2)

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Mobile Home Sales of Florida LLC

Wow I had no idea I was so busy the last 4 weeks that I did not blog Part 2 of this series.  Wow! Sorry about that.  In case you forgot here is Part 1.

Ok, how do you get backlinks removed that you no longer want linked to your site?  It is not too hard to get them removed and I have had about a 90% success rate at doing this.  Sometime this process takes persistence and patience, but it can be done.

First you must determine if your site is linked back to by a directory site or a website.  I have had almost 100% success rate in getting backlinks removed from websites .  I have had closer to a 90% success rate in removing backlinks from directory sites.   

Website owners are usually reasonable people who may or may not realize that they are linked to your site.  It may be that their web designer or SEO company are using  the website owners site to build a huge link farm.  This is done a lot by SEO companies that only have only the SEO company's interest at heart,  The SEO companies will link every site they have worked on to each other using Blackhat SEO.  Good backlinks are important and when you have a real estate website you do not want porn sites linked to your site.  Usually an email to the website owner will resolve this issue for you. 

Site Directories can be a bit more difficult but do not fret, they can be resolved with an email as well.  Though it is not  usually in the Site Directory's best interest to remove a link, most will be happy to do it.   Keep in mind that it can take many emails and pleas of help to get some of these Directories to remove the link back to you.  Do not give it and keep after them.  What ever you do always be polite and professional.   

In the next blog I will you some tools you can use to check what neighborhood your site resides in.

Wayne, how do you determine who is linking back to your site? Google alerts?

You said in Part 1 "What tool can you use to check your back-links?  You will have to read my next blog for that information."  I just got through reading you "next blog", where is the information?

Hi Sharon.  Thanks for the comments.  No Google Alerts will not really reveal your backlinks very well.  There are several tools for that and I will address them in Part 3 of my blog.
