Link weight. Minusinsk. How to get out from under the filter?
The Minusinsk filter and ways to get out from under it is one of the most discussed topics among webmasters. Moreover, the release dates vary, and quite significantly: someone is ready to brag that he brought the site out in 3 weeks, while for someone the whole process took almost half a year. What do deadlines depend on? And what should be the reference mass in order not to fall under the filter?
Types of SEO links and how to work with them
The process for removing links depends on how they were acquired. There are currently three main types of links:
- Eternal, purchased either through exchanges or through private brokers.
- Spam is when links are posted on forums in large numbers.
The easiest withdrawal process is if the links are for rent. Then you can easily remove purchased links, and then use the appropriate services to speed up page indexing: for example, getbot.guru or indexgator.com. Less than a month will pass (approximately), Yandex will certainly notice these changes and remove the filter.
With eternal references, things are a little more complicated. Especially if they have been bought for several years. If the customer sponsored the purchase of such links well, then there may be more than 1000 of them, and some of them will definitely end up on already inactive sites. The most stable resource for placing eternal links is miralinks.ru. The sites that exist here work stably, over several years of operation, more than 80% of loyal and stable resources remain. You can change or delete links in bulk by contacting the resource support service. However, they will have to provide site IDs. Keep in mind that in 10-15% of cases you will have to pay for the removal of links.
On other resources of a similar plan, things are not so good. You can buy links to 1000 sites, and after 12 months, half of them will be out of traffic. To remove/remove links, you will have to look for site owners yourself. It is very long, and besides, it is unprofitable. Probably more than 70% of them will ask for money for withdrawals. The scale of the cost of removing links is sometimes amazing! There are even cases when it is easier to create a new site, instead of removing links for a fee. Sometimes it is really more rational, especially since there are still funds left in the budget for “white” promotion.
Another nuance: rare sites for buying links check sites registered in the system for filters. If you perform a simple check on the AGS, it turns out that half of the links have filters, some do not provide the required number of outgoing links, others are out of the system, and on the third links are placed as direct entries, which is regarded extremely negatively by Yandex.
If you are buying eternal links from private brokers, then you need to immediately assess whether the seller is the owner or an intermediary. Good sites have a stable contingent, that is, the site turnover is low. In addition, the seller, who values his reputation, will try to remove the links himself in case of problems and do it for free.
The most difficult case is when the main reference mass is on forums, in spam. In this case, even a direct contact with Yandex technical support will not help to remove the excess weight. If such a situation has arisen, it is recommended to make a new site, taking into account the latest requirements of the search engine.
But what should a “safe” link mass be? Much here depends on the topic of the resource and the number of referring sites. If your site is in the TOP-20, then there may be 200-300 incoming links, otherwise you risk falling under Minusinsk. If you still fell under the filter, then you need to start working to reduce the reference mass. As soon as Yandex sees the decline dynamics, it will remove the filter. The minimum time for this is 3 weeks. As practice shows, usually Yandex "likes" about 500 domains referring to the resource, and the removal takes place in a month and a half.
