    Hi all,

    Okay hand up. One of my sites has been badly hit for 2 of its main keywords thanks to the pengiun update. Luckily it is still ranking for some of the long tail keywords, so the site has not been delisted.

    I need to now remove the bad links to my site that I generated as a result of scrapebox etc. Can anyone please advise how I go about doing this please ?

    Regards. John.

    Have you traced out the bad links first?

    Spam comments tend to stick for ages so removing then is quite hard as the site owners tend to forget about them

    SB spam links are really impossible to remove. You can do
    1. Try to build new high quality links
    2. Try to create a new website from the scratch.
    Everything besides this 2 will just waste your time

    Ask google first to point you on those "bad links" ;)

    Yes I used a seo software to list all my links. So got a good idea of the links that I should not have. I was actually hoping there was some way in google webmaster tools to stop certain links from counting.

    So basically I need to continue building links but of a good quality. What about moving the site to a new domain and doing a 301 redirect?

    Would the bad links also follow the domain?
