Commonly Asked Questions

Not Just Backlinks!


Of course backlinks play a role in your ranking drop. However, it is not just the backlinks. We must eliminate any duplicate content and ensure that all meta data is unique to each page. All pages must be properly indexed through the sitemap. If these items are not improved upon, search engine rankings will not improve!

About Our Rankings?


When a Google penalty is lifted and your website is seen to be compliant, your rankings will improve. However, they will not immediately return the first page. This requires additional efforts, but the team at Exaalgia will work hard to get you there.

Manual Action & Algorithmic Penalties. Simplified & Explained

Manual Actions | Site-wide & Partial Matches

A common penalty, manual spam action focuses on your backlink infrastructure. Once you receive a Penalty Lift Notification from Google, we understand that this type of penalty has been lifted.

Algorithmic Penalties | Rank Failure

Algorithmic penalties can be combined with a manual penalty or can be a standalone penalty. The only evidence of this penalty is when your first page ranking suddenly disappears. The only evidence that your website is compliant is an improvement in your rankings.

Google Algorithm Updates.

Google updates and changes their search algorithms all the time. Many updates are minor, however large updates such as Panda and Penguin can have major affects your visibility. We will continue to update this list with the most recent updates.

Penalty Short-list .

  • Panda Updates – Panda filters content, but is not always successful.
  • Penguin Updates – The objective is to remove any spam or bad links.
  • Domain Level Redundancy – This is often the result of sites cloned or duplicated.
  • Content Redundancy – Having the same content on more than one page can hinder rankings.
  • Multi-Domain – Buying domains to target specific keywords can leave you in the penalty box.
  • Link Seller – Link selling is a big NO-NO! Your links will not have any value once you are flagged.
  • Young Site – If you have a brand new website, do not over-optimize it quickly.
  • Intermittent Ranks – Structural problems can cause a website to fluctuate in and out of the index.
  • Bad Neighborhood – If your website supports porn or gambling sites, you will be penalized.
  • Spam – Webmasters, be careful that your vendors are not spamming. An audit report will help expose this problem.
  • Homeland Security – If your website poses a threat to government security, you could be in serious trouble.
  • Canonical Glitch – Often times content on your site can be seen as redundant if you do not use the www subdomain. This is a Google glitch.
  • Proxy Hack – Google will penalize you if a hacker messes with your Google ranks.
  • Third Party – If someone steals your content or links your site to a bad website, you could be penalized.
  • Google Algorithm – Google is always making changes. Keep an eye on their latest algorithm updates.
  • Masking Issues – By using MOD rewrites, you can be penalized.
