    Now that the entire BMR network has been de-indexed and they are providing their users with the option to delete all the links that you have built using their network, I was wondering should you do this, the reason I am asking is because I think I have read somewhere if Google send you a letter about detecting unnatural backlinks that you shouldn?t remove them, which should you do?

    Many thanks in advance,

    As far as I am aware there are no hard and fast rules - but think about it the BMR links are useless so how does it help to keep them

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    No, do not delete any links.

    Build new links and vary your linkbuilding... use a variety of anchor texts and a variety of backlinking processes. Add content to your sites in the form of content on pages you currently have and new pages and backlink those using a variety of backlinks with a variety of anchor texts.

    Deindexed sites don't always stay deindexed.

    Sorry I meant to write your instead of you in the title, yeah I am not really sure why you would want to keep them, I am sure that is one network of sites that will stay de-indexed but like I say I just remember reading somewhere not to delete backlinks, maybe because it is viewed as an admission of guilt or whatever who knows?

    I'm of the opinion you shouldn't bother to delete them. If google was going to flag you as a co-conspirator in their network it would've already happened by now.

    If you remove the links I doubt your rank will increase as the blog network sites are supposedly all deindexed anyway.

    Yeah there is definitely an element of shutting the door after the horse has bolted.

    Delete them. It is not going to hurt, and could help.

    Even though the sites are de-indexed in Google, they may still indexed in Yahoo / Bing. The question should be how long BMR is going to keep the sites? Without subscription fee, I doubt they will continue to maintain it.
