Remove’em Link Removal Service Removes Bad Links To Your Site



Link profile cleanup. No matter the type of your online business, you have to keep an eye on all your anchor text links on the web to identify links with overused keyword phrases.

Text over-optimization is a definite risk, with Google, at least, and you surely want to avoid that.

But if you have the need to remove backlinks and don’t have the time to look for them yourself, then this is where Remove’em comes into the picture. One of the best link removal services around, Remove’em has a powerful algorithm that is incredibly sophisticated, yet highly accurate.

The prediction tool analyzes how many links you are going to have to remove — very helpful in deciding which subscription package to order.

Remove’em offers two basic forms of service, the self-service option and the full service option.

The former is cheaper and offers you control over which links you want removed in the client control panel. The full service option is expensive, but handy if you have a big mess on your hands, and want to deal with it spontaneously.

Major data sources that are utilized include Majestic SEO, Moz, Ahrefs and Strike Iron.

You can perform a free link analysis as part of a current promotion at the official site.

    Seems like a fantastic program! My only issue is that it says it’s $99 / month. That’s a little too expensive for me. Hopefully one day I can afford that!

      As a free-lance web professional who has been doing analyses and back-link profile management for many different agencies and domains. I can vouch for Removee’m is head and shoulders above the competition. The depth of knowledge of the team there along with ease of access to the ever improving (already industry leading platform to boot) data management makes penalty removals a breeze.

      The cost is a great value when you stack up the $$$ saved in the short term and especially in the long run.

    A useful resource to consider for sure. Thanks for posting this. The testimonials on the full service page are really impressive.

    Hi Bradley.. thank you so much for writing this article about Remove’em! I am one of the team members for the service, and it always makes us happy when others see the great benefit we are trying to provide.

    Dtt23… I did want to mention that if you can’t do the $99/month, we do have an alternative self-serve option for a one-time fee of $249. I hear if you kindly email the sales team, they also frequently hand out coupons 🙂

      Thanks for the tip! I didn’t realize that. $249 is a much better option that I may consider. Really appreciate the info.

    Thanks for the review, Bradley.

    In this industry, transparency is not always guaranteed, so I try to make our work as clear and concise as possible. Many SEOs over the past several years (and currently) tout their work as “high quality,” but the majority of it is spam (at least from what I have seen).

    Helpful Tip:
    If you are going to choose an SEO company to help market your site to search engines, make sure you know what strategies they are utilizing. If they use any of the tactics pointed out in Google’s link schemes post (, run far, far away. Transparency is key.


Find The Traffic Of Any Website With SimilarWeb



If you have a particular site you are competing with, or just want to find out the traffic of any website or blog, there are a number of online tools that can help.

Most of them work quite differently from one another, in how they calculate the numbers, but solutions like Alexa, Quantcast, TrafficEstimate and even SEQquake provide valuable insights. Now you can add another neat tool to this list — one that goes by the name of SimilarWeb.

In theory, it is impossible to know exactly how much traffic a website gets, as that information is private to the owners of that particular website.

Tools that promises to provide these numbers does so based on their own research, algorithms and estimates. Some even include logs from Internet service providers in their statistics. Point being, you should always take this data with a grain of salt.

They are guesstimates, at best.

But still a good source to find out website traffic and demographic information. SimilarWeb works the same way, and one advantage it provides (against other such tools) is that a fair amount of data is available for free. Other provides charge monthly fees for access to their statistics.

So simply input the URL of a website that you want to gather some insights on, and the tool will give you a brief report about that site, along with their traffic estimates.

The numbers presented are quite close, though obviously not accurate.

Obviously, the bigger a site, the more precise an estimate it will provide. For example, TechCrunch lists on their ‘Advertise with Us’ page that they receive 34 million monthly page views. And sure enough, SimilarWeb provides numbers in this range.

However a lot of smaller sites are not enumerated, understandably.

As it stands, though, this probably is one of the better traffic estimation tool available online, and you can use it to gather some good results and compare how your sites compare with your competitors.

It also works with mobile apps, so give it a try at this link.

New Google Penguin Algorithm Update Being Rolled Out



A new Google Penguin algorithm update is now rolling out. Although it was delayed by a week or so, the search engine giant has already begun the rollout of its latest Penguin update.

The company officially announced this a few weeks back.

In fact, the slow worldwide rollout began this past Friday, with the objective of reducing even more search spam than before. According to the company, webmasters may already have seen an impact already, though the effects are expected to be more noticeable in the coming weeks.

In the words of Pierre Far, a Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google:

“On Friday last week, we started rolling out a Penguin refresh affecting fewer than 1% of queries in US English search results. This refresh helps sites that have already cleaned up the webspam signals discovered in the previous Penguin iteration, and demotes sites with newly-discovered spam.”

Sounds pretty solid!

Those of you not in the know, Penguin is the codename for Google’s algorithm that decreases search engine rankings of sites that are found to be violating the Webmaster Guidelines that the company has put in place.

It focuses on artificial methods that are employed to increase the ranking of webpages — manipulation, in other words. Google has updated several of its algorithms these past few months, including a number of updates to Panda.

At the same time, the company has been hunting down individual sites and entire networks that it believes are trying to trick the system.

Google Starts Displaying Blog Posts In The “In The News” Box



The “In the News” area is a highly diverse and decidedly vital section of Google search result pages, and the company has just made a very important change to it.

In addition to just regular news sites, the search engine giant has begun showing additional content in this portion. Content like blog posts, Reddit discussions, even videos. This is sure to open up new possibilities for people and businesses.

Sure, only three news pieces are displayed here, related to the topic — and they don’t appear for all search queries. But this is still an area that people take special note of when searching.

As this report notes, content in this box only came from Google News, meaning only some sites got in on the action, those that had approval from Google. But the company now wants to expand on this, and add in more content from a more diversified range of sources.

A bit of a game changer, this, as the search engine giant states:

“We will be pulling from all over the web which means that we will present as diverse a range of voices as possible to ensure we get users to the answers they are looking for. We are always working to give our users the best possible answer to their questions. That might come in the form of a video, a press release, a blog, a photo, a social media post or a news article.”

Powerful, powerful stuff.

Interestingly, this does tie into the recent algorithm update that Google just pushed out last month, where it said that small and medium sites would benefit from added exposure.

Sure looks like that this welcome move is a part of that puzzle.
