brilliant thread. I would like to see how this all comes out.
This community is 10/10, Mary. Everybody has been kind and forthcoming with their opinions and advice!
I’ll return to write about my findings when there is a development!
Just for anybody interested, I spent some time last night creatively bringing down the keyword densities in my content.
Today whilst combing through links filtered by exact match anchor text (of which one term had over 30%) I noticed that there were around 20-30 links from different spammy sites built in October/November 2018.
Based on what I know about how links are indexed and evaluated, this potentially would line up with the algorithmic penalty that we clearly see in charts back to January.
I have today added these spammy domains to a disavow file and I will wait some days to see what impact, if any that it has.
I've read so many opinions such as "you don't need to disavow links anymore" and "negative SEO isn't a real thing". I think this is going to make an interesting experiment.
go and search for recent Google disavow case studies, from what I have read it does indeed make a difference
Importantly, you need to get the URLs you've disavowed recrawled. Google needs to see the link to your site before then checking whether you've disavowed it.
Set up a single page website on a new domain and set up GSC on it. Make sure the single page is nothing but the URLs. Then request from GSC that Google crawls the page and all the links on it. You'll waste a domain, but you can find cheap domain extensions.
that is a freaking brilliant idea
Interesting... Could you please link a few?
Google will always crawl a new website.
Such a great thread, it seems to be great when your site recovers.
