Google lets you Disown Unwarranted Links to your Medical Site


In recent times, Google appears to have come down heavily against the age-old SEO tactic of excessive link building. Hundreds of thousands of websites, including doctor and dentist websites have been adversely affected in terms of their page rankings for various keywords. Webmasters have been trying to clean the extensive mess of low quality links, which they believe may be causing lower page rankings for their sites.

Google has issued guidelines regarding how a website can get rid of unreliable links that may be doing it more harm than good. In fact, it has also introduced a tool that helps a webmaster ‘disavow’ links to the site. If your website is among the ones that have received a notification of a manual spam action on the basis of “unnatural” links to your site, Google’s ‘Disavow’ tool can help address the problem.

It is important to remember that links still continue to remain as one of the key signals that indicate to the search engines about the relevance and reputation of a website. Healthcare SEO experts cannot afford to undermine the importance of high quality links. However, it is the spammy, low quality links, link exchange schemes and paid links that violate the guidelines of search engines, and result in downgrading of the site’s rankings.

Google recommends that webmasters should remove from their website as many poor quality and dubious links as possible. This is the most effective and sure way to attack the problem of lower page ranks due to bad links. Getting rid of low quality links will help improve the reputation of your medical site among the readers. When people see spammy links pointing to a website, they tend to develop a negative impression about the website or the business. That is something you need to avoid. Wherever you find that you are unable to remove the bad links, Google’s ‘Disavow links’ tool can do the job for you.

I give them an A+!

Naren (Ekwa Marketing) revamped my website and I have actually been very pleased. His company is now starting to manage my social media sites, which I don't have the time or desire to do. So far, I give them an A+.

You are the best at it. THANK YOU!

Dr. John Palmer
Results occurred at a much faster rate

Ekwa Marketing optimizes my website and actually rebuilt my previous website to maximize its effectiveness. About three months or so after launching we started seeing that we were getting some meaningful hits. The positive thing with Ekwa Marketing is that results occurred at a much faster rate and I found that Naren really actively listened and really cared about fulfilling what my goals were.

More new patients calling us

As always, we appreciate your input and help you have given us so far. We have seen more new patients calling us who found us on Google, visited our site, liked the layout and what they saw, and decided to call. Some even from across town, which is about 20 miles. So you and your team are doing a GREAT job !!
