What are the Potential Penalty Scenarios?

Experienced digital marketers may not fear much in the world of SEO, but a Google penalty is certainly one thing that keeps us all up at night! Even the most benign penalty hits might make your site suffer ranking drops for several keywords all at once. The worst of all known Google hits may actually make your whole website go invisible throughout all of Google’s search results. Complete deindexation is the worst possible thing that can happen to your site and the impact to revenue really hurts!!!

The Many Google Penalty Possibilities:

Generally speaking, you need to watch out for two kinds of penalizations:


This might be the case if someone at the Alphabet [Google] search team looks over your site and decides it isn’t compliant with their standards for quality.


These can happen when the algorithms see anything that is in violation of the webmaster guidelines the search engine giant enforces.

More About Algorithmic Penalty Scenarios:

Most of the algorithmic penalizations are related to two of their most-famous algorithm updates handling SEO spam matters:


This algorithm tends to reward sites considered high in quality. However, it will also penalize sites with irrelevant content, excess duplication, spun content, thin content and technical issues, both offsite and on.


This particular algorithm hunts down sites that have backlinks it considers suspect. Even if you don’t create unnatural links of your own, you might have a ruthless competitor conduct negative SEO to try hurting you. While rare, it is still possible to do negative SEO these days, so watch out for that nonsense!

Why a Google Penalty Matters ?

If you think you’ve been hit with a Google penalty, you need to deal with it as quickly as you can. Your SEO rankings and traffic will be impacted negatively, and this isn’t going to just go away by itself. As a matter of fact, it’s likely to get even worse over time.

However, the SEO damage can be reversed if you have someone take the appropriate recovery steps and let Google know what’s up. This is the goal of penalty recovery services like ours.

When Will You Need Google Penalty Services?

A manual penalty comes with a notification in your Webmaster Tools. Algorithmic issues are something that often comes without warning but you’ll notice a big drop in your traffic and rankings.

In either case, you should hire professional SEO experts who have experience in identifying specific penaltiesremoving them, and then either recovering your traffic to its previous levels or possibly even surpassing them. In either case, someone has to remove them, and a professional Google penalty removal service can do just that. 

Your next step would then be to keep someone on retainer each month to provide ongoing SEO services so that future penalties are avoided.

Knowing You Have a Google Penalty

If you receive a warning via your Webmaster Tools, then you know for sure that penalization has been applied. Even if you don’t get an official warning, there are warning signs of an algorithmic penalty being applied, including:

Sudden drops in organic traffic to your entire website or parts of it.

Sudden ranking drops for particular keywords or multiple keywords.

Drops such as these without other or obvious explanation.

Penguin and Panda penalty possibilities can hit your website anytime the search engine giant crawls your site. New penalties can be released anytime Google does an update to its algorithms. While most digital marketers know when the major updates happen, minor updates can happen on an almost daily basis, as is often the case. This kind of penalty won’t have an official notification, but you might notice the following:

  • Your PageRank on 3rd party tools is now 1 or even 0.
  • Your website doesn’t rank well for its business name or brand anymore.
  • Your branded listing points to random pages instead of your homepage.
  • You slipped from page-one positions to lower pages without having done anything yourself.
  • Site searches using the proper advanced search operator yield no results.
  • Overnight, your website is no longer part of the cached results.
  • Reduced social engagement because users have a harder time finding your penalized website.

Google Penguin saw its initial release on April 24th, 2012, and made headlines around the world. The search engine giant claimed that it only affected just over 3% of search queries. Still, it’s part of the main core algorithm now. Contemporary websites can still be impacted by it. Penguin was the initial attempt to deal with websites that manipulated their SERPs by using lots of links.

Google Panda came out even earlier, starting in the United States in February of 2011 and Europe two months later. Since Penguin and Panda are both parts of the core algorithm now and have been for years, ascertaining what specific penalty you have is a combination of art, science, and purely instinctive detective work. Most importantly…it depends on experience.

Google Penalty Removal Has to Start Fast

It doesn’t matter if your penalty is algorithmic or manual in terms of impact. Your site will lose rankingstraffic, and conversions from the minute the penalty hits until you have it fixed. Fortunately, a thorough audit can reveal many issues you might have. From there, we can formulate a plan to restore proper order that might include steps such as:

  • Scanning your site for possible malware
  • Fixing excessively long load times
  • Cleaning up server issues and technical SEO problems
  • Removing problem content or adding new content
  • Eliminating undesired backlinks
  • Fix overoptimization issues in your internal linking
  • Disavow backlinks, but only when we’re certain it’s the cause
  • Add new links to balance your off-site metrics
  • Asking Google for reconsideration

We don’t stop with removing the penalty and getting your rankings restored. Our team can also show you what to do in the future to avoid future complications and hold on to your positions in the SERPs.

Algorithmic punishments usually are faster and easier to deal with. It’s the manual variants where a human being at Google decided to penalize your website, possibly due to suspicion of violating the Webmaster Guidelines that the search engine giant wants everyone to abide by.

Why Manual Penalties May Take More Effort to Remove

It’s often the case that the Googler will list specific links that violate their terms in your search console message. When that happens, it’s on you or your SEO team to reach out to those sites and ask them for removal. Prove that you’ve tried that first and then disavow any links from sites you can’t reach.

It’s a complete PITA 🤬 but the good news is manual penalties are exceedingly rare these days.

Penguin Recovery Isn’t Automatic

Removing the questionable links that might have triggered a Penguin handicap is a crucial first step, but that alone probably won’t get you restored to your previous site status. The link needs to be replaced with trustworthy versions, and social media might be a good source of quality links.

If your website wasn’t initially reliant on manipulative links, then your website might see its rankings restored relatively quickly even by using low-powered social media shares.

Panda Recovery Is About Content Not Links

Panda complications have a tendency to hit websites reliant on advertising revenue or affiliate sales quite a bit more than others. The addition of high-caliber content goes a long way in recovering from a Panda handicap, and just upgrading current content can do a lot of good, too.

The biggest thing might be just making sure you have provided a superior user experience for your visitors. Factors that matter in determining UX include but are not limited to:

  • Page coding
  • Outdated design
  • Mobile-unfriendly web design
  • Page view times
  • Bounce rates
  • Page-load speeds
  • Content is easy to read
  • Lack of terms of service and privacy policy statement
