Internet Marketing Company Investigates
As a leading internet marketing company, MonkeyFish Marketing always looks to stay on top of the latest industry topics. Today we look at the surprising news that the BBC has received an unnatural links notification from Google for an article on their website.
The news has sent shockwaves through the internet marketing industry because rarely is it seen that such a huge organisation receives a Google notification about bad things happening to their site. Much discussion was had on internet forums and in news articles but the overall question remained – if the BBC, one of the biggest organisations in the world can’t be trusted from a quality link point of view, who can be trusted?
After the initial surprise, the industry started to speculate about what had actually happened. Google’s John Mueller investigated the notification and found that the link in question invoked a granular penalty. John revealed more in a Google Webmaster help thread saying, “Looking at the details, what happened was we found unnatural links to one article, and took a granular action based on that. However, this isn’t affecting the website on the whole negatively.”
You’ve got to think, if they can do this to someone as big as the BBC, they can do it to smaller websites too, and that includes many small businesses on the web.
That’s why it’s important that the content on your website, whether it is homepages, blogs etc are always optimised correctly with quality links. With MonkeyFish Marketing that’s something we always guarantee our customers and as a primary internet marketing company we use links in the right way in order to generate traffic to your website organically.
