Hey everyone, I currently work for a company that outsourced their SEO efforts like most do in the industry. I was hired on a project basis to do some web development, and never had to do anything with their SEO or SEM because it was all outsourced and everything was ranking so well on many different difficult keywords. I left for awhile during the winter months and came back around March to find that the rankings had severely dropped. After searching keywords I found several linkedin accounts that started tons of discussions about this company and then linking back to the homepage...and the reason that I found them was because they were literally showing up on page 1 while our page dropped to about 5 pages back. The more I looked into these accounts, there are 100s of different fake social media accounts, blogs, etc that were made by this company. It goes without saying that this company was fired for the drop in rankings, and I am attempting to clean up the mess. Being newer to SEO, I am much more familiar with creating websites that are "SEO friendly" etc, but not with recovering from something like this. If anyone has a few words of advice or any ideas of where you'd start, I would be grateful to hear it. Thanks!!!
