    Use a link removal service to help you, they usually have experience and know what to look for.

    Have you tried removing links yourself yet?

    First, you should find out why you are not getting traffic. Check your website backlinks, site navigation, content quality. Normally low quality links are the first reason to decrease in traffic. I will advise you to analyze your website first.

    Use Google Disavow Links Tool to remove your spam links. Or you can do a separate mail to each webmaster to remove your links one by one and follow up them.

    Best of Luck!

      So you have to email over 500 webmasters to remove links from their sites?

      Seems like a lot of work.

        Have you determined what kind of penalty you have been hit with and if you have been hit with a penalty at all?

        Login to Google WMT and check to see if you have a manual penalty assigned to you.

        Under "Search Traffic" -> "Manual Actions" it will say either unnatural inbound links or unnatural outbound links penalty. If it's inbound then you have to clean up your links and depending on the value of the site you might want to consider just starting over. I've found LinkDelete is a great inexpensive service to help with getting rid of unnatural inbound links.

        If it says unnatural outbound links then all you have to do is remove any links from your site that look like paid links and submit a reconsideration request.

        If it says "No manual webspam actions found." it means that you triggered an automatic algorithmic filter. This is usually due to duplicate content, very weak content or very few pages. This is easy to fix. Just add good content and get rid of pages that have little or no content on them.

        If you haven't signed up for WMT yet you can today and it will still show you if the site has a manual penalty assigned to it.

    5 Ways to Recover from a Penguin Attack

    1. Link Audit: A link audit is simple and does not require hiring an SEO company.All you have to do is dig into your Google Webmaster Tools to check who is linking to you. Check whether these links are of the following types:
    • Paid links (affiliate sites, for instance).
    • Irrelevant links (content is not remotely related to your niche).
    • Links to advertorials.
    • Links from pages that have no content or spammy content.
    • Broken links.
    • Links from de-indexed pages.
    • Mass links from low-quality directories.
    • Links from microsites that have been created solely for link building (for instance, a Blogger page created by your SEO agent filled with low-quality content and linked to your site).
    • Any link that looks suspicious.
    • Reciprocal links (for instance, links from plugins where it says ‘Powered by’ or has site-wide footer links) NOTE: These links may have to be checked manually on each of the pages. Download all the links on an excel sheet and archive them. Manually checking through them is the best way to pick out any suspicious or low-quality links. Contact the concerned webmasters to remove the link and also submit a disavow request for links that you do not want your site to be associated with. For deeper analysis, you can also use paid tools such as Majestic SEO.

    2. Paid Links: Although a subset of the link audit section, this particular link type deserves an individual mention because Matt Cutts specifically mentioned these links that give ‘floating PageRank’ to sites. What does floating PageRank mean? It means that if you have linked to another site and that site pays for it, you are sharing a part of your PageRank with them via your outbound link. This is not only going to affect that site but it will also affect your site unless you nofollow the link and declare to users in a disclaimer statement following the link that you are being paid for the link or that it is an affiliate link. You will need a link audit to discover any such links on your site.

    3. Anchor Text: It is found that post-Penguin 2.0 there has been a reduction in the number of pages that appear from a particular domain for a branded keyword. For instance, if you type in a random keyword such as Zappos Couture, normally we would expect that all of the search results in the first as well as first few consecutive pages would belong to the domain/brand name Zappos. This is no longer the case. The search results show a variety of other sites on page two, thus reducing the clustering of root domains. This gives more room for smaller enterprises to rank for branded terms, for instance, if you are an e-commerce retailer and you sell a certain brand, there are higher chances for your site to be shown in search along with the actual brand’s site. This emphasizes an important thing that Penguin 1.0 also stressed; anchor text diversity. You must not use anchor text of the same type (for instance, branded keywords) for more than 50 percent of your total anchor texts. Optimize your site for a variety of good keywords rather than only sticking to one particular type of keyword

    4. Content Marketing Time and again Google has asked us to create quality content. Now Google asks us to create the kind of content that people will bookmark. It is the same thing re-iterated a different way. Shown below is an excerpt from the Matt Cutts blog citing his statement on Google’s quality content expectation So what kind of content will get users to bookmark your site?
    • Videos are a great source of visual information. Quality videos with a lot of unique information can gain a lot of attention. Note: You must know about video SEO before you start investing time and money in creating videos.
    • Articles are a great content resource but you must also know how to market them in order to increase their exposure among online readers. Read more about blogging for SEO.
    • Images are another great source of content that grabs user attention well enough to gain bookmarks for your site. Make sure the images are optimized for search engines. Other useful and share-worthy content may include webinars, case studies, surveys, e-books, PowerPoint presentations and so on. Apart from these you could come up with out-of-the-box ideas that cater well to your industry.


    5. Social Signals: Yes, social signals do still matter. More so if they come from Google+. Although Google+ does not yet have the high number of users that Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn have (which by the way are also a strong indicator of SEO social signals), as a business you must be active on it as a highly prospective social product of Google. It is more direct for Google to retrieve data on a particular

      Take your time to disavow carefully... and then be prepared to wait six or then weeks to see the results...

      There's no another way

    Disavow tool should absolutely NOT be your first thing to try. Unless you understand why your traffic has dropped and backlinks seem to be the obvious culprit you should not get backlinks removed. And unless there's a clear message in Google Webmaster Tools that shouldn't be your first thought.

    Start from the traffic. You've got Google Analytics or other similar tool installed, right? Where did your previous traffic come from? What were the visitors interested in? Where you doing less of whatever good thing you had going, sharing less on social sites, not getting as much traction...?

    IF it was from Google have you retained your SERP positions? If not, why not? You're also tracking your SERP positions, right?

    Did you do some big changes 2-6 weeks before you noticed the drop in traffic? Link structure on site, organizing contents, new backlinks, WP theme change...

    Unfortunately it's very common that the content that's described as "quality and unique" is just garbage. If that's your problem link removal is not going to help you. Actually it might just make the situation worse: your content is still garbage, you're deluding yourself, and now you've also lost some of the backlinks you had.

    I apologize if you're done your homework, but too many webmasters on this forum are just clueless. And too many people throw around suggestions without any real information.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?
