Anglo Rank Deindexed by Google
It was only a matter of time until the latest Blackhatworld link network was deindexed. This time it was Anglo rank.
Anglo rank was a “private” link network that supposedly utilized other networks to build links for their clients. The problem was that Anglo rank wasn’t very private and that they fell victim to the recent round of Google’s targetings.
For those members of Anglo rank it’s time to regroup and clean up any links built on that network and your overall link profile. Google has already started rolling out penalties to those clients that used the service and it seems that there are more and more reports everyday.
Anglo rank was built on a shaky foundation to begin with. It was clear that the intention of the network owner was to sell as many link packages as possible before the network got caught. Take a look at the sales thread over on Blackhatworld for an example of the blatant mistakes and shortcuts the owner used. For example, do you notice how many prospective clients asked for sample URLs before purchasing? Each and every time the owner would follow up with direct examples of where the links were located. It doesn’t take more than 5-10 minutes to begin to unfold the house of cards with even one sample URL.
Link networks are an extremely effective way to build links that have lasting effects for search engine rankings. Just as long as the owner isn’t a novice, see Anglo rank, and has an idea of how to build a lasting network.
To the owner of Anglo rank, don’t make the same mistakes again. Don’t go advertising your site via banner ads on blackhatworld. Don’t make your service thread a sticky for 6 of the last 12 months. Who do you think Google’s gonna target when they want to deindex the next network to make a statement? A network that stays out of the spotlight and doesn’t advertise all over or the one that advertises at any possible moment? Don’t supply sample URLs to prospective “clients”. That’s an easy way to uncover your network. Take pride in offering a link service that can stand the test of time and not one that’s some get-rich-quick scheme to pad your pockets and screw your clients.
