I Have 500+ Links From One Site - Good Thing Or Bad Thing?


Best Answer lister , 27 January 2013 - 10:16 AM

Hey - Matt Cutts 100% answers this exact question.

In short - it is not a problem as long as the OBL's are from a similar niche - (the links will be diluted as well).

 

If the YouTube Vid doesnt show just type into YT - "How does Google consider site-wide backlinks?" and its one of Matt Cutts question/ answer sessions.

niche relevant

 

"relevance" is subjective not "objective"

 

What is the word "lead" relevant to?

I took a sabbatical from my site for 10 months (starting a family) and am now coming back to it for the first time.

Rankings started to fall in late April (which I instinctively blamed on Penguin/Panda) but only from #1 to #2-#3. In the intervening 10 months they've fallen to about #9-#10.

 

* About 5 years ago some SEO got me a mass of sitewide blog footer links with exact-match anchors -- some of which still remain. (Some domains have 750-plus links pointing back to my site).

* I've a sitewide banner (2,500 pages) on a site with a related theme to mine.

* There are also a load of links from article directory sites (when no-one knew any better). 

 

My question: In Google Webmaster Tools I have NOT received an unnatural links warning.

Should I still clean up the links with the Link Disavow tool? Or should I just focus on improving my site in other ways (I've no social presence whatsoever, for instance).

 

Thanks

Thanks for the response. Slightly related (internal linking) question:

 

My 6-year-old site's about Italian real estate and includes 20 main pages on each of the country's 20 regions (Tuscany, Sicily, etc).

Each time I put up a new villa in say, Florence, Tuscany, it creates a sub-page with photos & descriptions and a link back to the Tuscany page with the anchor as the town name.

 

Question: My Tuscany page has about 1,000 internal links to it, all various anchors, but all only 1 or 2 words in length. Is this bad?

No, not at all. That's perfectly normal for internal links.
