What is a Google Penalty?


If you’ve noticed that your site has recently lost rankings impacting sales and traffic, there’s a good chance you’ve been affected by a Google Penalty. Like most brands, the first instinct is to panic. Fret not, Float’s Google penalty recovery services have got this, with a 100% track record in penalty removal. We know, impressive huh? 

Holding a share of around 90% of all web search traffic, market-leading powerhouse Google is super protective of their excellent reputation. Consumers trust Google to provide the most relevant and useful search results, so they adopt a no-nonsense approach to spam and black hat SEO. They’re known for taking quick and often brutal action if they suspect a brand isn’t behaving with integrity online.

Unfortunately, well meaning businesses who lack in-depth SEO expertise can inadvertently fall foul of Google penalties, leading to demotion in search engine rankings at best, or complete site delisting at worst. For businesses that rely on on-line trade, this can have disastrous consequences for their bottom line!

Types of Google Penalties

Not all Google Penalties are the same. Don’t worry if you don’t know which you’ve been hit with yet. That’s our job. And our approach for removing the penalty will vary depending on which type you’ve incurred.  

Manual Google Penalty

Manual penalties are a bit rarer than automatic algorithm penalties but Google’s spam team do have the power to manually review and issue penalties to websites if they believe they are in breach of the Google Webmaster Guidelines. If your brand is suspected of deploying negative or black hat SEO tools, they’ll issue a manual penalty that can be difficult to remove without the expertise of an SEO expert. Which is where Float Digital come in. 


Algorithmic Google Penalty

Algorithm penalties are much more common than manual penalties, with Google issuing penalties automatically as they crawl your site pages. The most well-known algorithm changes are Google Penguin and Google Panda, which were introduced in 2011 and 2012. These took a hard stance on black hat SEO tactics, hammering down on manipulative back link tactics or over optimised on-page content. Sound complex? Talk to us!

If you are found to be buying links to your website, you can be removed from Google completely.

If an image hosted on your website appears differently in a search on Google Images, you can receive a manual penalty for a mismatch.

70-80% of users ignore the paid ads at the top of Google, and instead focus on the organic results.

Your website can be penalised for a single keyword, and kept from ranking for said keyword, while everything else appears normal.

Google Penalty Case study

After being hit with a Google Penalty, Chesterfield Couture didn’t rank within the top 100 results for their high-priority keyphrases, but we changed that in just 1 month, and we increased their visibility by 657% for a pool of targeted keyphrases in 6 months. Cumulatively, these keyphrases receive 111,260 searches a month in the UK.

On a limited budget, Chesterfield Couture needed to increase their visibility in search engines, drive more organic traffic and yielder higher conversions. Investing in SEO and improving their natural search visibility would mean they could decrease their PPC budget whilst still driving traffic.
