We Carry A Comprehensive Link Building Audit Process
We take a completely customized and hands-on approach to auditing and cleaning up your website’s backlinks.
Our certified SEO analysts manually review your link profile to provide actionable recommendations based on your goals.
We also use advanced link analysis software like Ahrefs, Semrush, etc., to automate time-consuming backlink data collection and analysis.
Here are the steps involved in our fool-proof link audit methodology:
Step 1: Website Analysis
We start by thoroughly analyzing your current website, including:
- Backlink data collection from Google Search Console and other sources
- Evaluating backlink quantity and quality comparison with competitors
- Assessing link velocity – pace of new link acquisition
- Anchor text optimization opportunities
- Any previous Google penalties
Step 2: Identify Harmful Links
Our experts go through your backlink list with a fine-tooth comb to identify:
- Toxic links from low-quality, spammy, or suspicious websites
- Manipulative links using paid, redirected, or other black-hat tactics
- Irrelevant links from shady websites or bad neighborhoods
- Over-optimized anchor text links
Any risky links threatening your current/future rankings are flagged for removal.
Step 3: Disavow File Creation & Submission
We compile all the toxic and harmful links into a disavow file and submit it to Google through Google Search Console.
This signals Google not to consider those links while evaluating your website.
Disavowing bad links is crucial to avoid Google penalties and protect your rankings.
Step 4: Removal Request for Harmful Links
Simply disavowing links is not enough – they need to be completely removed.
Our experts reach out to webmasters/site owners, requesting them to take down links pointing to your site. This cleanses your backlink profile thoroughly.
Step 5: Link Building Audit Report & Recommendations
We deliver a comprehensive audit report containing:
- List of all toxic/harmful links along with specifics like anchor text, etc.
- Good backlinks worth preserving
- Opportunities for acquiring new high-quality links
- Recommended changes to your internal linking structure
- Any other link building or technical SEO fixes needed
Step 6: Ongoing Link Profile Monitoring
We keep continuously monitoring your backlink profile to ensure new toxic links don’t pop up again. This protects your rankings in the long run.
Benefits of Our Link Building Audit
