Backlink Removal Audit


If your website has poor quality backlinks pointing to it, it could be penalised by the search engines resulting in a low ranking. Removing the poor quality links can lead to a reversal of the penalty and the restoration of your ranking. An SEO strategist will download your entire backlink profile and carefully check each link, producing an Excel report listing all the poor quality backlinks, allowing you to approach the webmasters and ask them to remove these links.

Here’s when Backlink Removal Audit can help!

  • 1

    When you have poor ranking results

  • 2

    When you are aware of low quality links being built towards your website

  • 3

    When you have suffered a penalty from the search engines


A common problem faced by many sites is the amount of poor quality backlinks pointing to them which could be negatively impacting the performance of the site in the search engine results pages.

If your site has incurred a penalty due to having suspicious looking backlinks, removing the low quality links can result in the penalty being removed and your rankings being restored.

Our backlink removal audit involves the download of the entire backlink profile of your website. We then analyse each link to check for quality and identify all low quality links, sending these to you in an Excel file so that you can attempt to contact the webmasters to ask for the links to be removed.

Quality process

The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire to clarify your objectives. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with delivering the audit and is the foundation for all our quality checks. We will just need to know your domain name.

An SEO strategist will download your website's backlink profile and manually check for low quality links. They will produce an Excel document listing all the low quality links along with an explanation as to what is wrong with each link.

Please note that this service does not include link removal.
