Suspect your website is subject to a Google Penalty?

Google has strict guidelines that SEOs and webmasters must follow to avoid penalties in ranking position. If your website falls foul of these guidelines, your rankings can be penalised in two ways. The first is by an automatic penalty if Google detects a breach of its guidelines via an algorithmic update. The second is a manual penalty, applied by a real person. 

We can help you get to the bottom of the cause of the penalty and more importantly help you to put it right and restore your rankings.

Penalty Recovery Process

The first step is to find out why the penalty occurred. For this we will carry out an audit of your website and report back with the results. Once you know what’s wrong, you can fix it and for the next step we will outline a plan to fix the issues that caused the penalty in the first place. Finally, once the issue(s) are resolved we will submit a reconsideration request to Google.

How long does penalty recovery take?

It really depends on why you were penalised in the first place. Often we see companies that have have their websites penalised because of their backlink profile. Getting the penalty lifted in this case is only a part of the recovery process because those links that Google once counted towards your organic rankings now won’t count even after the penalty is lifted. So they’ll need to be replaced or another SEO strategy put in place to counter the lost authority. Once we have gotten to the bottom of why you were penalised, we can give you an idea of how long the recovery process will be.
