Is This the Birth of a Link Removal Industry? mrbill 6/25/12 9:01 AM
It seems that the latest algorithm changes at Google have prompted some to jump at the opportunity to capitalize on removing spammy links/negative seo links pointing to websites.  Is this the birth of a new industry driven by Google's algorithm?

Two sites I found that are removing links for website owners is deletebacklinks.com and linkdelete.com.  I wonder how many more businesses will pop up in the months ahead?

We've already seen reports where webmasters are charging others to remove links from their own sites.  Now businesses are offering to do this as well.  Unfortunately those webmasters that have been impacted by Google's unnatural link warnings have few options other than to pay money just to see who links to their sites in the first place.  Google does not provide this in Webmaster Tools and the only somewhat comprehensive services all cost money.  This consumes not only a webmaster's money, but also is a drain on time that would be better focused on content creation.  I also fear it's only a matter of time before websites are created for the sole purpose of posting harmful links on their domains.

What's your opinion of link removal services and the inability to see who links to your site?

I agree with the fact that people might post harmful links just to be able to charge once you want it removed .... They already do that with review sites .... they have fake reviews generated then charge you to remove. I pretty sure Google knows this  though . .... And you can see your links that Google approved  just type in Links: before your domain in Google for example.... my site

It's awesome. Spammers are really getting it where it hurts and it's great.

You only found two..... don't worry, there are a lot more already out there.


Just wait for round 2.  That is when the shakedown artists purposely create a few crap links to your site and contact you with an offer to remove the links for a small but significant sum.

Round 3 will be when the more creative artists will, again for a small but significant fee, protect your site from being harmed by backlinks through their secret SEO sauce.


If you haven't figured it out by now, both Round 2 and Round 3 will be conducted by guys who's last name end in vowels and think the movie Goodfellas was a comedy.

LOL @ StevieD. Why don't I get these awesome emails? I'd totally post it on the forum.

I'm laughing at the BHW emails I get though offering services to "fix" links with...more links?
Re: Is This the Birth of a Link Removal Industry? StevieD_Web 6/25/12 8:45 PM
I already had my first telephone call.

Engrish as their 2nd language.... really bad......wanted to fix my site for rinks. 

Yes, rinks.

I will wait until one of them can speak "Engrish Good" before I start playing along.

Sound be good for a few laughs.

I wonder if Sony and Samsung know that they hired the one site for Penguin recovery services.

One of my clients decided that they would go ahead and start building a bunch of links that they bought on Fiverr.  They got the Penguin slap big time.  I used LinkDelete.com and was really pleased with it.  They took all the headache out of the problem for me.   Recommend it if you got the penguin slap!

30 years in jail with forced labor should take care of that one.

Another FAIL fix for Penguin claiming that more spam will fix the issue. Scammer.

Don't post so many links here ... all of this sites will be hit by Penguin if you continue :)

Re: Is This the Birth of a Link Removal Industry? mrbill 6/26/12 2:22 PM
According to Webmaster Tools, our site has just under two million external links.  We export outside of the USA (not jobs), which accounts for a small percentage of the links.  WMT allows us to download just under 90,000 links to view.  Where are the other 1.8 million?  Not that I want to sift through all that lol, but the point being is that only a tiny percentage of links are displayed for webmasters.  Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
Re: Is This the Birth of a Link Removal Industry? webado 6/26/12 3:10 PM
If 90,000 is just a tiny percentage there's something very wrong and unnatural going on for sure.

>>> If 90,000 is just a tiny percentage 

Then all what's left is junk ... :-)
