Link Detox® (DTOX)
Find Toxic Links - Recover from a Google Penalty
Recover and protect your site from Google Penalties by cleaning up your backlink profile.
The Link Detox® (DTOX) tool analyzes all links of your website and classifies them automatically with the help of the DTOXRISK score. The analysis is based on a variety of SEO metrics, certain problematic contexts and our self-learning data-driven Link Detox Genesis algorithm. DTOX will offer you recommendations for all your potentially harmful links. Furthermore, Link Detox® Risk (DTOXRISK) metric helps you with your Link Risk Management and provides data for safe search engine optimization.
If your site has received a Manual Action in Google Search Console, you can use Link Detox® to identify all the bad links and create a disavow file. The disavow file is then uploaded to Google Search Console.
You can also use the PitchBox integration to automatically reach out to webmasters and ask for links to be removed. Even if they don’t respond favorably, you will have an e-mail log that you can include in your Reconsideration Request which shows the ‘considerable effort’ that Google requests. The effect of the disavow file can be made to happen faster by using Link Detox Boost (BOOST).
It is possible that in the period between sending the Reconsideration Request and getting a reply from Google more links may be found and Google may object to these. By setting up a Link Alert (LA) you will be notified of any new links and will be able to deal with them accordingly.
If your site is not ranking properly it may have an unnatural backlink profile which is triggering the Google Penguin filter. This can be checked with Link Detox® (DTOX). A disavow file can be produced and uploaded to Google Search Console. The effect of the disavow file can be made to happen faster by using Link Detox Boost (BOOST).
By cleaning up your backlink profile you lay the foundation to avoid any future Google penalties.
