This e-book will help you to identify “unnatural links" so it will be very useful for you if you are trying to recover from a Penguin penalty. Also, this e-book helps you if you received a link based manual penalty. The samples you'll find in here have been carefully collected by me and my team from SEOprotect.co.
You'll not only find many unnatural link samples but you'll also find a short explanation next to each sample that helps you to understand why Google considers the particular link as “unnatural".
Unnatural links are the main reason why many websites become victims of Google's Penguin updates or of manual penalties. Mostly, many website owners don't even know the reason why their website lost its rankings. Also Google's unnatural link warning which webmasters receive after they have been hit by a manual link based penalty (provided in Webmaster Tools if it has been set up) confuses many website owners. They start searching for this so called “unnatural links" in order to lift the manual penalty. Some start to panic and disavow almost all of their links, others on the contrary don't do anything, as they simply don't know where to start.
Also when it comes to linkbuilding two patterns appear: Some people are so afraid of building harmful links that they stop building organic links in order to boost their rankings in a sustainable manner and spend all their money on Google's Adwords to be on the safe side. Others still build all their trust in old linkbuilding tips and tricks and build links that are harmful nowadays and therefore risk an algorithmic or manual penalty.
