    Hi all, my site uniggardin.dk has lost major rankings on the searchengine google.dk. Went from rank #2-3 on important keywords to my site, and after the latest update most of my rankings have jumped to #12 - #20.


    This is so annoying, and I really have no idea what to do. Can it cause bad links to my site? In that case what will I have to do?


    Thanks in advance,
    Julia

    You sell blinds in Denmark and you have 235 backlinks from an English language bodybuilding website, as well as 35 links from A Romanian Tyre shop? This is likely part of the reason, a lot of your backlink profile seems to be irrelevant to your actual niche. Also the percentage of do follow to nofollow links is quite unnatural. Plus do you have links from all your other Scandinavian blind sites? They could think you have built a link wheel.

    Hello Badyboy, thank you for the answer. How do you see the bodybuilding website? Is there a tool, where you can see the exact urls?

    Thank you very much

    Yes, get rid of these backlinks and build quality links instead.
    Plus, post unique content every day. Google loves new content.

    I used Ahrefs to check your backlinks. Sign up for a free account and you can make up to 15 queries a day I believe. Build quality links to your site and try to get the bad links removed if possible (though do not use the disavow tool). Fresh content would be a good move, though its hard to write compelling content about blinds etc.

    Ok when speaken of quality links, how do I get these links? There must be a way to find those places to get a good link?
    What is the secret recipe?

    Why is Disavow tool not a good idea? What I heard this is the tool that can help you away with the bad links, or am I wrong?

    Thank you all very much

    Home Page:
    The secret recipe is diversity in everything you can. Get links from different sources (forums, articles, profiles, social media, press releases, PDF files etc.), with different forms of display (both site-wide links and those from single pages), with both keywords and brand name in anchor texts, ******** and nofollow ones, text and image links, links to homepage and to some pages.
    There are 3 ways to restore your rankings and all of them result in making your link profile stronger and more natural:
    1. removing the least natural and weakest links;
    2. disavowing links from the 1st point that you weren't able to remove;
    3. getting new, high quality and diversed backlinks, especially those with a brand name or website address as the anchor text.

    You can do all of that or only one or two. What you shouldn't do is to continue getting weak links from the same sources as before.

    Please try and remove multiple links from the same site, try to have no more than 10 links per website if possible. Try also building more content both on your site, and also unique content links from web 2.0 + social signals to your money page. Vary anchors a bit more and increase domain diversity, then you should see some recovery.

    - Get those irrelevant link removed
    - Put fresh content in your website ( This works for me)
    - Build quality link from different medium not just one. In short have diversity in your link . Have balance of No-follow and Do-follow link. Do not always try to link with keyword, sometime use brand name, text link in content, variation of keywords.
    - Increase your social signal
    -
