It seems no one is safe from the Giggle love letter! Not even major brands like Regus.

I have just received this email asking for me to remove links to the serviced office giant's website:


Subject: toxic link removal request

Dear Neil,

I am sorry to bother you, but I come to you with a request regarding a link on your site to our site Office space, virtual offices & meeting rooms to rent - Regus UK

As I'm sure you are aware, Google have made drastic changes to its link algorithm.

Due to the 'unnatural link' alerts that are being sent to Webmasters and the recent Penguin update I would like to request either making the link 'nofollow', removing the link from the listing or removing the entry entirely from your site .

Please see below the exact URL of the page where the said link was found. I would really appreciate your help with this, but please let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,


Now then, was a major brand such as Regus stupid enough to use ALN for link building or was this a negative SEO attempt ?? The jury is out !!!

    Hey Neil - was this your attempt at testing negative SEO? Why were you linking to them?

      Ha ha! Don't think I'd pick a major brand like Regus Mike!!!

      No, the site is plugged into ALN, looks like whoever was taking care of Regus' SEO was using spun networks, and now they've employed a high brand SEO firm in the UK to clean up after them.
