In this article we will talk about how to remove bad backlinks from a website and give some practical tips for using Linkody’s Disavow Tool and Google Search Console.
If you have been actively tackling SEO and linkbuilding for your website, there is a chance that you have unnatural links pointing to your site. Because of Google’s Penguin algorithm, these can be a real pain. They can even get you a manual unnatural links penalty.
With our new Link Visualizer, you won’t need to search for your links on the given url. Just click the link in your Monitored Link report and the page opens in a new tab. In this tab, you’ll see your link highlighted and centered.
1st. Click on any link:

Why check your links on site?
When we get a new link, one of the first things we want to do is to spot where the link is on the source page. Linkody provides tons of metrics to assess a link’s value but it’s always good to have a look at the page and see the link in its context.
So just click on any link in your Monitored Links report and check:
The overal page design (is it doing your brand any good?)

In the past, locating a link on some pages could have been difficult. Sometimes you’ll need to scroll through a lot of other links or the html source code must be searched for your url.
Now with the link Visualizer, one click is enough to visualize it in the page. When you click on a link’s url, Linkody opens the Link Visualizer by default.

Linkody can notify you when a link you’re expecting from a specific page gets live. More than that, Linkody allows you to manage easily these links by allowing you to associate a status. This short guide explains what there is to know about this feature. Continue reading →
