Removal of Poor Quality Backlinks

During a technical SEO audit conducted on the website, it was uncovered that there were multiple occurrences where a single domain name was actually having over 100,000 backlinks pointing to the client’s website. All these domain names were scraping and hotlinking content from the client’s website, which results in having so many backlinks.

With Google Penguin Algorithm penalizing for manipulative backlinks, organic search traffic had declined over the past few months.
