Self Serve Link Removals
How Does Remove'em Work?
Use our 4-step work-flow to help you through the process of analyzing the links to your site and to contact webmasters to remove the aforementioned links. In addition you can view the remove'em video tutorial or read this handy guide for best practices in using your Remove'em account.
Type in your domain name and we will obtain the top links to your site from the 3 leading link information providers. Using our proprietary systems, you can easily find all the links that use manipulative anchor text to determine which ones need to be removed. Remove’em will use anchor text matching, TLD analysis and a few other metrics to provide algorithmic suggestions for the volatility of the links.
You can also add links from other sources, such as Google Webmaster Tools’ Latest / Sample Links list, through our CSV upload feature. Here’s our guide on how to obtain those lists of links: Adding Links From Google Webmaster Tools.
Next, you can analyze the each site to determine the validity of the link, and whether or not it should be kept (Good) or contacted for removal (Bad). Our system will add an “R-Score” to each link, which is the algorithmic suggestion mentioned above. The R-score categories are either Danger, Warning, or Review. Use these metrics and your best judgement to gather a group of sites that need to be contacted to remove unnatural links, which brings you to the next step!
Remove’em will crawl each website found with links to your site and look for email addresses and contact forms, which are populated into the tool. We will also use domain-ownership look-up services, such as WhoIs, to find other sources of contact information.
With this data in hand, you will have a great starting point at which to request link removals!
Once you are content with the number of links removed, you can export your results which you will then upload to Google Drive. Include a link to the Google Drive spreadsheet in your reconsideration letter when you file the request through Google Webmaster Tools so they can see all the efforts you have undertaken to clean up your backlink profile.
We also provide a disavow file creation tool, link status and R-score charts, and removal graphs through our dashboard view.
Now that you are clear of a penalization, there are several different options to help you market your site to the users of search engines. Please be sure to steer clear of any of the strategies listed in Google’s Link Schemes post.
