As the only person in my marketing and design department, I have no one to communicate with about SEO or if any problems develop.
I am still new to learning about SEO and would greatly appreciate any advice or help with my current problem.
I found that all of the backlinks for our cleaning business' website are all spam links. Spam websites of foreign sites, pharmaceutical sites, and the like, all irrelevant to our cleaning business are linking back to our website.
What is interesting is that the cleaning business website is only a homepage. There are no other pages located on the site and these backlinks are linking to a redirected 301 page that is made to be associated with the spam site and so it turns into a 404 page not found.
For example, the spam links are linking to our business like: domain.com/_media_/something.assocated.to.the.spam.website
I have read up on this backlink problem to find a solution, but I was returned with multiple different answers. One solution involved changing the page the backlink is connect to but, as stated above we do not have (and we do not want for that matter) a page like that. The second option was to have these links disavowed manually through Google Search Console's Disavow Links Tool.
As someone who has never disavowed links before, I am reading about how this should be done with caution. I am looking for expert advice to help me with advising me on the correct way to solve this problem.
Should my plan of action be to just disavow these links?
I greatly appreciate anyone taking time out of their busy schedule to read about my backlinks issue.
I hope to find the best action to take.
Thank you so much,
I have reached out to the hosting company as it was a concern that the website may have been hacked. Luckily, the hosting company found nothing suspicious with the website having a good domain name reputation.
Thank you to everyone who has replied to this issue and has given me advice.
I am extremely grateful. Thank you all so much.
