Key Reasons for Google Penalties

As the sophistication of the Google algorithm continues to develop, the ability of the search engine to be able to find sites that are constructed purely to rank highly in search engines is getting better and better, which means serious issues for anyone that is too blatant in their approach.

The Google dream is for all web masters to be solely focused on providing high quality sites, that create natural backlinks across the board. Though for the business owner, search engine results can mean the difference between success and failure.

By using poor quality link building techniques, this will most definitely result in receiving a google penalty. Obvious paid links, guest blog posting, link exchanging, over optimisation, spun content, links from banned domains, banned pages, site wide links all are reason your site could fall victim of Google's penalties.

Finding Toxic Links

For many, identifying the genuine toxic inks is the hardest part. You can look at your check your list of links in Web Master Tools, but there is no indication to their "Health" not to mention WMT includes historical links, or you can just guess what links you think is causing a problem.

The link could be banned or considered a 'bad' link under Google assessment, or one IP address could be generating multiple links to your site, indicating a link network, or the sites themselves are simply of low trust.

It doesn't matter whether toxic links have been introduced by you, your web master or a malicious third party; the key to getting your penalty removed is to show Google that you are putting in the effort and getting rid of those links.
