How to get links removed from abandoned BlogSpot domains? Polaris 6/8/12 10:22 AM
Many years ago when link building was like the nuclear arms race where any link from anywhere is what every SEO consultnt was doing, at the advice of  a pretty reputable consultant we got involved in a "Widget" link bait scheme which netted us a lot of (useful at the time) footer links across the web. 

Over the the past 3 years we've managed to get all of these old "widget" links removed from all the domains that were hosting them, however many are still hosted on blogspot domain accounts that do not have the account contact information to request for their removal. We've tried our best and have managed to have more than 85% of them removed, however the remaining are on abandoned mystery accounts with no way to contact or access the contact information for the owners. 

Can anybody advise me on how to go about getting these links removed from abandoned blogspot domains? 

Thanks

Hi Polaris

With 85% resolved, it sounds like you've covered a lot of ground already! If there are links that you're absolutely not able to remove, I'd document that with a reconsideration request along with the issues that you've been able to resolve. 

Hope that helps,

Cheers
John
