    1. Wait It Out

    In some cases, you could just wait it out. Let’s say, for example, that someone launched an SQL injection attack on multiple sites, pointing 1000s of spammy links at you. In many cases, those links will be quickly removed by webmasters, and/or Google will spot the problem. If it’s obvious the links aren’t your fault, Google will often resolve it (if not, see #5).

    Even if the links are your responsibility (whether you built them or hired someone who did), links tend to devalue over time. If the problem isn’t too severe and if the penalty is algorithmic, a small percentage of bad links falling off the link graph could tip the balance back in your favor:

    Link graph with bad links removed

    That’s not to say that old links have no power, but just that low-value links naturally fall off the link-graph over time. For example, if someone builds a ton of spammy blog comment links to your site, those blog posts will eventually be archived and may even drop out of the index. That cuts both ways – if those links are harming you, their ability to harm will fade over time, too.

    2. Cut the Links

    Unfortunately, you can’t usually afford to wait. So, why not just remove the bad links?

    Link graph with all bad links cut

    Well, that’s the obvious solution, but there are two major, practical issues:

    (a) What if you can’t?

    This is the usual problem. In many cases, you won’t have control over the sites in question or won’t have login credentials (because your SEO didn’t give them to you). You could contact the webmasters, but if you’re talking about 100s of bad links, that’s just not practical. The kind of site that’s easy to spam isn’t typically the kind of site that’s going to hand remove a link, either.

    (b) Which links do you cut?

    If you thought (a) was annoying, there’s an even bigger problem. What if some of those bad links are actually helping you? Google penalizes links based on patterns, in most cases, and it’s the behavior as a whole that got you into trouble. That doesn’t mean that every spammy link is hurting you. Unfortunately, separating the bad from the merely suspicious is incredibly tough.

    For the rest of this post, let’s assume that you’re primarily dealing with (a) – you have a pretty good idea which links are the worst offenders, but you just can’t get access to remove them. Sadly, there’s no way to surgically remove the link from the receiving end (this is actually a bit of an obsession of mine), but you do have a couple of options.

    3. Cut the Page

    If the links are all (or mostly) targeted at deep, low-value pages, you could pull a disappearing act:

    Link graph with page removed

    In most cases, you’ll need to remove the page completely (and return a 404). This can neuter the links at the target. In some cases, if the penalty isn’t too severe, you may be able to 301-redirect the page to another, relevant page and shake the bad links loose.

    If all of your bad links are hitting a deep page, count yourself lucky. In most cases, the majority of bad links are targeted at a site's home-page (like the majority of any links), so the situation gets a bit uglier.

    4. Build Good Links

    In some sense, this is the active version of #2. Instead of waiting for bad links to fade, build up more good links to tip the balance back in your favor:

    Link graph with good links added

    By “good”, I mean relevant, high-authority links – if your link profile is borderline, focus on quality over quantity for a while. Rand has a great post on link valuation that I highly recommend - it’s not nearly as simple as we sometimes try to make it.

    This approach is for cases where you may be on the border of a penalty or the penalty isn’t very severe. Fair warning: it will take time. If you can’t afford that time, have been hit hard, or suspect a manual penalty, you may have to resort to one of the next two options…

    5. Appeal to Google

    If you’ve done your best to address the bad links, but either hit a wall or don’t see your rankings improve, you may have to appeal to Google directly. Specifically, this means filing a reconsideration request through Google Webmaster Tools. Rhea at Outspoken had an excellent post recently on how to file for reconsideration, but a couple of key points:

    Be honest, specific and detailed.
    Show that you’ve made an effort.
    Act like you mean it (better yet: mean it).
    If Google determines that your situation is relevant for reconsideration (a process which is probably semi-automated), then it’s going to fall into the hands of a Google employee. They have to review 1000s of these requests, so if you rant, provide no details, or don’t do your homework, they’ll toss your request and move on. No matter how wronged you may feel, suck it up and play nice.

    6. Find a New Home

    If all else fails, and you’ve really burned your home to the ground and salted the earth around it, you may have to move:

    Link graph with site moved

    Of course, you could just buy a new domain, move the site, and start over, but then you’ll lose all of your inbound links and off-page ranking factors, at least until you can rebuild some of them. The other option is to 301-redirect to a new domain. It’s not risk-free, but in many cases a site-to-site redirect does seem to neuter bad links. Of course, it will very likely also devalue some of your good links.

    I’d recommend the 301-redirect if the bad links are old and spammy. In other words, if you engaged in low-value tactics in the past but have moved on, a 301 to a new domain may very well lift the penalty. If you’ve got a ton of paid links or you’ve obviously built an active link farm (that’s still in play), you may find the penalty comes back and all your efforts were pointless.

    If you want to get rid of a Google penalty or you simply want to prevent one, learning how to remove bad backlinks with a backlink audit is critical. Theres no other way around it.
    You have to conduct a full backlink audit and find the low-quality backlinks that are hurting your rankings.
    While there are numerous link removal services, most of the time they are expensive and not effective, so its better to do it yourself.
    Finding low-quality backlinks can be a challenging task for some people, but it shouldnt be that way.
    By following the tips Im about to share with you in this post, youll learn how to identify and remove all your websites bad backlinks.
    Once you know how to eliminate suspicious links, the penalty recovery process is very straight forward.

    Disavow backlinks
    This is a two-step process. First, youll need to download a list of links to your site. Next, youll create a file containing only the links you want to disavow, and upload this to Google.

    Download links to your site
    On the Webmaster Tools home page, click the site you want.
    On the Dashboard, click Search Traffic, and then click Links to Your Site.
    Under Who links the most, click More.
    Click Download more sample links. If you click Download latest links, you'll see dates as well.
    Note: When looking at the links to your site in Search Console, you may want to verify both the www and the non-www version of your domain in your Search Console account. To Google, these are entirely different sites. Take a look at the data for both sites. More information
    Youll download a file containing all the pages linking to your site. Use this to create a text file (the file type must be .txt and it must be encoded in UTF-8 or 7-bit ASCII) containing only the links you want to disavowone link per line. If you want Google to ignore all links from an entire domain (like example.com), add the line "domain:example.com". Your text file can include additional information about excluded links, as long as each line of description begins with the "#" character (all lines beginning with # will be ignored). Don't upload the entire list of links to your site: the text file that you upload is the list of links you want Google to ignore.

    Example
    Here's a sample of a valid file:

    # example.com removed most links, but missed these
    http://spam.example.com/stuff/comments.html
    http://spam.example.com/stuff/paid-links.html
    # Contacted owner of shadyseo.com on 7/1/2012 to
    # ask for link removal but got no response
    domain:shadyseo.com
    If you want Google to ignore all links from an entire domain (like example.com), add the line domain:example.com.

    Upload a list of links to disavow
    Go to the disavow links tool page.
    Select your website.
    Click Disavow links.
    Click Choose file.
    Note: Uploading a new file will replace all previously uploaded ones.

    It may take some time for Google to process the information youve uploaded. In particular, this information will be incorporated into our index as we recrawl the web and reprocess the pages that we see, which can take a number of weeks. These links will continue to be shown in the Search Console inbound links section.

    Hi,

    Now that we have a general idea of the links that you don’t want for your website, let’s get rid of them. In general, we have a number of ways of disabling these links so they won’t hurt your Google rankings:This is the easy one: find the contact details of the website owner and ask him to remove the link. Don’t demand the other website to take the link down, but ask this politely. That usually works better However, you will most likely also be faced with webmasters who ask you to pay for link removal or who don’t reply at all. In such cases, you should disavow the unwanted links that can’t be removed.

    1. This is the easy one: find the contact details of the website owner and ask him to remove the link. Don’t demand the other website to take the link down, but ask this politely. That usually works better However, you will most likely also be faced with webmasters who ask you to pay for link removal or who don’t reply at all. In such cases, you should disavow the unwanted links that can’t be removed.

    2. Check which low-quality pages on your website are linked by bad backlinks and get rid of the pages (404/410) instead of the links. That is probably not what you want, as most pages will have value for your website. Besides that, too many 404s send a wrong message to Google as well. In addition to getting rid of the page, you should also disavow these bad backlinks.

    3. Get rid of the domain and start all over. Drastic, but if your site isn’t worth investing to clean up these bad backlinks, that might be an effective way. I wouldn’t do that unless Google has clearly penalized you for Penguin, Panda and more, though.

    4. If you have just too many backlinks you want to get rid of, or webmasters aren’t responding to your call to remove the link, you can also disavow these links. That’s basically telling Google you’d prefer these links not to be taken in account when assessing your site.

    Now there is one thing I have to warn you about: you will probably lose traffic. Your website will have less links pointing to it after this, so less people will visit your website via these links. In the case of disavowing, the links will still be there, but the sudden drop in backlinks (bad or not) will trigger something at Google, telling it your website is less interesting. That’s the signal Google gets when these links disappear. It will work out in the end, but traffic will probably go down at first. There is no telling how much and how long, to be honest.

    Of course, this is a lengthy process. It will take a lot of steps and therefore time. However, there is a way to speed this process up.

    It’s a story we hear too often: someone hires a bad SEO, that SEO builds a bunch of spammy links, he/she cashes their check, and then bam – penalty! Whether you got bad advice, “your friend” built those links, or you’ve got the guts to admit you did it yourself, undoing the damage isn’t easy. If you’ve sincerely repented, I’d like to offer you 6 ways to recover and hopefully get back on Google’s Nice list in time for the holidays.
