A manual penalty is when a human at Google checks out your site and decides you’re doing something to try and manipulate the search results.

Niche Site Lady claims the link in question was from a ‘legit guest post’.

However, people often by guest posts to get a link – which is against Googles terms.

She says that traffic seems to be unaffected at the moment, but it will be interesting to see if there are any negative effects from this.

To fix the problem she’s putting together a disavow file.

This is actually something that Kasra Dash is helping me with for this site,

It turns out that for whatever reason (probably negative SEO, as I’ve not done too much link-building to this site), has loads of toxic links!..

There will be a full video coming soon on how we fix this and the effects of it.

What do you think? 🤔

What do you think is going on here? Have you ever been hit with a Google manual penalty?
