What will happen if large numbers of backlinks disappear?
Backlinks are helpful in getting new visitors to the website and hence,they play a major role in search engine optimization.If no backlinks,that means poor search engine rankings.
From where? Google? Webmaster tools? try and be more specific.
It is so dangerous , if you be find by google , you website will ke kill
Then the backlinks you have for a particular keyword will drop >> your page for that keyword will drop >> your page will drop as well in the SERPs >> along with other pages that has suddenly lost their backlinks.
It is just like a bridge losing the foundation that makes it stand. Just imagine that.
My question is, why would they disappear? Likely answer is that those links were of poor quality (link farms) so good riddance. You therefore are left with higher quality links (presumably) which can only help.
Note that there's a lot more to ranking higher than a bunch of links. It's a large part to be sure, but not the only one. Do not dismiss on-page optimization. Also, each link is not created equal. A link on a link farm has much less value than one from a site related to your page. Further, the value of each new link is worth a little less the value of the previous link. A hundred links is not worth ten times the value of the first ten links. It's a logarithm scale. That's what link builders are not telling you (or really know and understand) and think that the more links the better. Doesn't work that way. The ranking formula assigns a certain weight to links (let's say it's one third). No matter how many links you add, you are still confined to the one third weight assigned to the ranking formula.
So what will happen if a large number of links are gone? As with many other things in life, it depends. You may lose some ranking, you may gain.
If you got a notice from Google that you have unnatural links, removing them can put you back in G's good graces. If you have spammy links that have not yet triggered a notice from G, you may be able to forestall a bad result by deleting them now.
Losing links from high authority sites, on the other hand, will decrease the authority of your site and probably will have a negative effect on your search engine results. I say "probably" because there are a lot of factors that go into search engine ranking, such as how strong your competitors' sites are and how many links they have. If you have a much stronger site than theirs, even losing some links may have little or no effect.
A single good link lost can make a big difference, i.e. search engine ranking will drop, more links lost = more damage. Low quality links (link farms, etc..) won't make a big difference.
really it depends on the quality of those links. just like it doesn't matter how many links your site has, but the quality of the ones it does have. if you lost a bunch of junk links, then you're probably going to see a little boost in ranking. if there were some good, above the fold, in content links that you lost, you're gonna see a drop.
Iray beat me to it.
If you're loaded with spammy backlinks, cutting the ties could be very good. It just depends.
Then your site will be disappeared from Google search in your target keywords.
I dont think nothing would really happen straight away, although if the pages that had the links on them are crawled again, then the search engine would realise the link is not there no more. So to Search Engines your website would gradually lose links, but as long as your still building new ones, you should be ok. I would say so anyways
WPMU has remove lot of low quality link, and it help to recovery ranking. Quality is more important than quantity.
Right patrick - very right. Some SEOs thought that the more - the better. Which makes no sense in the long run as it does not actually create a strong foundation for your website.
Whilst search rankings are largely based on backlinks, I believe that search engines, such as Google, also take social presence into account, i.e. how many likes you have on Facebook or re-tweets on Twitter.
Links come and links disappears, this is the nature of the web. If a few goes away it will make no or maybe little damage. If you have a great quantity quality incoming links and always continue working actively on getting more quality incoming links, then a whole bunch of links disappearing will have no effect.
If your site backlinks disappear suddenly. then your site ranking and traffic gone decrease may in the next Page Rank update your site PR also gone down. So, Please try to build backlinks constantly.
PR is one of the SERP metric, quality link and relevant content is the matter. If number of link is the metric to win the game, surely large population country like China, India, will be the winner, because they can hiring lot of manpower to build link. If you build 1000 link today, the next day they can build 100,000 links, how can a site compete with them?
Ideally, quality is more relevant metrics.
I think it means your website will get out of the ranking position of the search engine.
You may disappear later on.
There is no doubt that backlinks decrease sharply can lead to Google punishment.
