  • Zeshan Ahmer: Check your website affected in Webmaster tool. Did you got any message.
  • Aravind Seo: Nope still no issues or notifications i received
  • Zeshan Ahmer: Your site is not penalized then however if you are afraid about your backlinks check your backlinks through ahrefs or Opensiteexplorer ;
  • Aravind Seo: i checked in fruition it shows the notification that im shared in my profile pls view it

  • Guna Nadar: Hi.. Penguin mainly targets the backlinks to your site and if these backlinks are not upto the algorithm requirements, then you are sure to be penalized by Penguin.. you will receive manual actions notification in Google webmaster and you will have to do backlink monitoring to check the quality of the backlinks and remove the bad links linking to your site.. ;
  • Aravind Seo: Hi i checked the webmaster tools for penalty and there is no issues, so the error is on the backlinks and i checked in the fruition and shared a screenshot too.. plz view it and reply me..

  • Ace Site Creator: You may not have done anything wrong in the eyes of Google. It is far more likely you just have not done enough right. For whatever reason, they may not put as much value on your site, or at least in relation to the keywords it was ranking for, now.
    It's nothing personal. It is just the algorithms.
  • Aravind Seo: but it notifies me that my site is affected and all my rankings are down and keywords are gone.. if nothing is wrong what should i do to recover.. ;
  • Ace Site Creator: +
    I"ve been hit in the past although not this time. Personally, I've been working on improving the content on my sites. That has helped some but not as much as I hoped. Recently, I've been making and uploading videos to Youtube with backlinks. That seems to have more effect.
  • Zeshan Ahmer: Hey Arvind Don't panic when you didn't got any message. This is just organic ranking others may have done something better than you. So from now just focus on more useful user interest stuffs and add it. Focus on valuable content and follow the ;guidelines ;of Google. That's all.
  • Aravind Seo: r u sure ! there s nothing to suffer ! but what about the screenshot i sent u it tells that im affected and backlinks shows of nofollow links too ?? so whats its mention !!
