The SEO landscape is continuously evolving. What used to work in the past can actually have a negative impact now. Over the years, website owners have been caught in the crossfire between Google and its battle against webspam. The truth is that it isn’t 2006 anymore and we can’t approach link building like we once did, otherwise Google will give us the boot.

    Yes, as Google is frequently changing its algorithm to provide better results in SERPs, we have to act accordingly. We have to adopt new techniques to stay safe. Older methods (Not All) can lead to bring penalty. Thanks for this helpful article.

    Pretty handy manual. If you are a grey niche marketer of some site like http://smstrackers.com/ , you need to do these things rather often. For example, recently we've removed MA penalty using the similar way. Our site had a lot of really bad links, which were added there by its previous owner. We acted similarly to this guide, except that we skipped Step 4 - since most of submissions were automatic and couldn't be removed by site owners. Disavow tool and Ahrefs were the only tools we've used, and it was enough.
    What wasn't explained in the article is that in most cases one reconsideration request isn't enough. We've sent 3 or 4 of them total, adding more and more suspicious domains in disavow file each time - and eventually it worked.

    Nice article. Nowadays, it's a bit hard to make quality backlinks, because Google is changing and you never know how it will react. Thanks for the advices!
