Penguin Penalized Site Case Study
In my previous post I talked about the Backlinks Strategy that I was intending to use on my Penguin Penalized site. Today, since implementing the strategy, the site is showing some improvement in rankings after my Amaterasu blog network had finished drip feeding all the links.
I had already disavow the links since Oct ’14 and I think is still too early to tell because the back links database usually takes a while to refresh. Ahrefs also found the 2 switchboxes I had done – pointing the blog network links on switchbox 1 and GSA links on switchbox 2.
Since Nov the organic search had increase from 9.9% to 15.8%, this is good news and it shows that the SEO is working.
Organic search has become the 3rd highest traffic source for the site, before that it was number 4 in Oct 14. Take a look at the screenshot below:
Comparing the data between Oct and Nov, search impressions has increased from 2012 to 3252, which is a good sign. The clicks have also increased from 31 to 56.
This Dec 14 I am going to re-design the site and continue to post new content – let’s see if it will impact the site ranking. If you have any comments or feedback, don’t hesitate to leave a comment Stay tuned for more posts next time!
