Google Takes Action On More Link Networks In Poland
Google issues mass manual action penalties over Polish link network participation.
Google’s Karolina Kruszyńska confirmed this morning that Google has taken action on another link network based in Poland. Karolina wrote on Twitter, “today Google took action on a large link network in Poland.”
This is one of many manual action penalties delivered by Google’s web spam team over the course of a year in Poland. Google took action on a Polish link network back in February and then again in July.
This time, Bartosz Goralewicz, a Polish SEO, believes the network that was hit this time was Prolink.pl. This network is known as a “static network” where links are places in mostly the headers, menu, left sidebar or in content as text anchors. He has posted a lot more detail and screen shots on his blog.
Later today, Prolink.pl has confirmed the penalty on their Facebook page.
