I Removed Inbound Links and My Search Engine Rank Improved

All you ever read is that to get ranked high in Google, Bing, and Yahoo, you need links. But lately Google and others have been commenting and making changes to their algorithm that take into account the quality of links point to a web site. This week I found out firsthand that link quality links really matter.

When I was first building out SpyPen.net, I did not have a search engine optimization strategy, I just put up some products, pictures, and content. One day while I was browsing Namepros I saw someone offering a few blogroll links across a few of their small blogs for six months for a few bucks. I thought it would be good for my site to get all of the in-bond links, but it turns out they hurt the site.

Because all of the pages that were linking in were unrelated to my content, Google punished my site for looking like I was trying to spam the site. SpyPen.net was on page 1 of Google before I added the links and then after a few weeks it went back to Page 2 and I could not figure out why. After some research I asked for the links to be removed from the blogs and a few days after doing that it was back to page 1.

Right now for me, it show up as the last listing on page 1 and hopefully with more quality links (like I got yesterday from GadgetKing.com but I will tell you about that later) and content I can improve it from there.

So yes, I had always heard that the quality of links matter, but not till I saw if first hand did it hit me how much google knew about quality of links. If you have an old site you you are trying to rank well for and maybe a long time ago you ordered some bad links take the time and go back and remove them.

    Though you make a compelling case,I can’t believe Google would actually allow this to be true. If that’s the case I can go make a bunch of bad links to SpyPen.net and bring your site down? I don’t think those links can be used for negative weight, it would add a huge method of sabotage. Perhaps there is another reason?

    Looks like you’re right because me too I’ve order a xrumer forum profile blast and did hurt my ranking from page 9 to 12 now. I was hopping 9 to better but didn’t work, so all those junk backlinks are dead! Best way is oldschool linking, using software like seoelite and else to find same category of your site and link exchange or post on blog comment dofollow with same topic as yours. Guys no cheating anymore, your money can’t buy!

    My Sites are always on 1st page on Google regardless of links or not.
    SEO is over-rated.

    Just focus!

    If it was that easy, to sabotage a site, no one would be making a living. Sounds more like a Google dance to me.

    To those of you who bought xrumer blasts and got knocked down pages sounds like you’ve been sandboxed. The key is link velocity and being consistent in your link building.

    All of my mini sites got no links, but still go #1 page.
    I think have the right keywords related to your domain names are the key drivers.

    Same happened with me. After placing links in un related sites now my sites isnt listing only.

    Sometimes site is listed and sometimes not listed.
