    Hi

    I would like to thank anyone that is willing to help advise me on this website.

    We ranked fairly highly for many keywords related to this industry but as with all things related to google we were hit and as result don't rank highly for any keywords.

    I am looking to see if anyone thinks if it is worth removing back links that are causing damage or should i start again with a new domain?

    What would you advise? Will it recover with removing links or should I add more links?

    Thanks

    Ben

    You can always start a new website, for now, try to save the old one. Disavow all the links that are spammy, look bought, and so on, then build some new ones. Make sure the new links look like legitimate editorial links.

    Yea thats the first thing you should do.
    Never post your keyword or website name in public and its against BHW RULES as well i think .
    And i think you should disavow some links and start building new ones.
    Add about new domain i don't think most of the people who got hit will create a new site and start to work again.You should build some quality links and slowly you will see a rise it SERP movement but since its already hit it can take a while to show up after you start building links onto it.

    Depends on how much money you are making with this
    website. If you were making really good money then try
    your best to salvage it.

    If not then scrap it and start over with a new domain because
    you will work extra hard fixing something.
