Disavowing theglobe.net bad backlinks from Sweden

theglobe.net

What’s worse?  The crappy website they have with no content and just super spammy links or the fact that you nor I ever asked for that bad backlink?  The fact that the charge to delete a link to you at $35 a link shows how they crash your backlink party.  But hey, Google knows this right, they wouldn’t hurt your site still…wrong!

Monetized Bad Backlink Site With Spam Links

I wish we could collect money like a nonprofit from SEOs everywhere and raise the $10,000,000 asking price of theglobe.com and just turn it off.  Why is it I hate theglobe.com so much?  Cause their links are bad.

Previous to this post I’ve always said don’t use the Disavow Tool unless facing a manual penalty.  Its the Google answer … but I tried something, disavowed a few hundred domains all connected to theglobe.net and over the next 3 weeks I saw a marked improvement in keywords and their position.

A client had the same issue.  300 domains from Sweden many with theglobe.com in their domain name mostly all with it at least in the page title included in their link profile.

After Disavowing theglobe.net and theglobe.com

A client’s site shows marked improvement shortly after disavowing theglobe.net domains. The file was uploaded in late November. Additional “theglobe” domains have been added and we’ve now had to disavow 30 more.  Close to 300 domains.

Ultimate SEO recently disavowed these links as well. Now I’m always doing stuff so its harder to tell the impact but it was soaring in rankings during November 2019.

Ultimate SEO Organic Traffic shows gains after disavowing theglobe domains. Was it the cause? Not sure but it doesn’t hurt and it appears to help.

Not A Link Building Scheme

These aren’t backlinks someone purchased, at least not from the target company or their SEO for that matter.  They are nuisance links, you could use this site for negative SEO.  It regularly pops up in the link portfolio of domains as they are expiring which has always annoyed me because it portrays a Domain Pop higher than it actually is … the globe of course doesn’t count.

Theglobe.com actually last I checked charged for backlink removal!  That’s one way to run a profitable site…make it so bad it hurts SEO so webmasters will pay you to leave them alone.  Of course … then the terrorist wins.

Noticed a few “theglobe.net” in your link portfolio?  If so its always an infestation and you should try disavowing.

Disavow Sample File / Template

So you may try the Google Disavow Tool if you haven’t yet.  Upload a txt file listing the domains you do not want counted.  We’re including a copy of one of our disavow lists, you can use it or add to it.

Who’s on our naughty list?  What should the txt file look like?  The long list is just below us.  Domains we’ve disavowed.

Disavowing theglobe.net bad backlinks from Sweden

SEO Metrics: DA DS DR DT CF TF DP AS and domain authority ranking.

SEO Metrics: DA DS DR DT CF TF DP AS and domain authority ranking.

If the title confuses you don’t worry. Id expect even intermediate SEOs are not familiar with all of those letters. Domain Authority or DA is a well established SEO metric by Moz.com that many often confuse with Google’s ranking of keywords.  Lets just remind everyone interested in their DA …that it has NOTHING to do with Google’s search results.  It MAY be based on some of the same similar metrics as Google uses but its just a number someone other than Google guessed.

Moz On DA

Moz On DA

Moz PR Tweeting They’ll Change How DA Is Marketed

What are the other SEO Metrics? Domain Authority Alternatives

DS – Domain Score by SEMRush
DR – Domain Rank
DP – Domain Pop
DT – Domain Trust by SEMRush
AS – Authority Score by SEMRush
TF – Trust Flow by Majestic
CF – Citation Flow by Majestic
Moz Spam – Is Another Moz Metric

For a more in depth look at each ranking we’ve included the SEO Metrics category from our FAQ section.

Continuing into metric land theres seemingly easy scores that you’d be wrong to expect to be equal. Backlinks are reported by Moz, SEMRush, AHREFs and Majestic. Usually these numbers are widely different, but how could they be different?

Keep in mind that the sites that report these numbers are making crawls and may be different sizes. Ive found MOZ to usually be the lower count, this could mean they have the smaller sample of sites from the others or it could be they have better spam recognition than the others. Another theory could lead you to wonder if one site includes backlinks from redirects where others don’t include redirected backlinks.

It’s important to note that these numbers are just made up criteria that the specific indexing site cane up with and depending on their size and rules the reported number of backlinks almost always vary. Some only count backlinks to the specific domain and not subdomains others do count subdomains.

Best SEO Metric

So whats right? Well to know that you would need to work for a search engine like Google to understand the factors uses to determine a sites values.

In the end no one index has it right, and no one metric is accurate enough to serve as a good predictor to Google’s real metrics.

Domain Authority after all went through a recalculation just under a year ago and we got DA2.0 which saw many sites plumet in the DA metric. That never translated into a drop on Google as DA isn’t considered by Google for ranking purposes.

Lets take a look at the metrics of one of my client’s domains and you may start to understand the disparity between these numbers and see patterns. (Link Opens In New Tab) https://ultimateseo.org/metrics/

SEO Metrics Report

SEO Metrics Report

Ultimate SEO Data Reporting Can Be Purchased In Our Online Store. Check Out Domain Detailing.

Beautiful is it not? A spreadsheet chalk full of data. First Id note that the only benefit to these values is collectively … consider how they interrelate, do they disagree?

In this metrics report the values are often color codes to reflect my opinion of the values I expect in a good SEO site. Red is obviously not what Id want to see.

If a domain has consistently red metrics its a very strong indicator that there is a problem there. If they disagree which they do sometimes then the jury is you. You have to decide which values you accept as accurate and which ones are likely irrelevant to ranking your keywords.

Ive added some overall average score boxes that take into account multiple, similar metrics. Thats also important … not all metrics are intended to show the same thing. Domain trust and Trust Flow are similar while Domain Score, Domain Rank and Domain Authority are similar.

These do generally correlate to one another but sometimes one is oddly higher than usual and that creates an anomaly in the usual spread of these numbers. The oddity can be a sign that the site is optimized towards a metric and not towards Google.

For instance sites may focus on increasing Domain Authority and by doing so they may leave behind other metrics.

SEO Assessments

Using the image above if we glance across the data we can likely agree the least desirable domain is the third.  Even with a DA of 10 its average across all of the numbers available is a 4.  With Majestic’s CF and TF giving it a 0 and its DT gaining a 0. It has a total of 9 to 25 backlinks …. only 5 to 10 domains refer to that site.  So its likely not a great site … but the third from the bottom is a different story …. still with a DA 10.  This time we have an average metric at 10.  We average 4934 backlinks across the 3 indexes and we have 350 to 417 referring domains.  But what stands out is our ratio … which is flagged in red.  There are 10 times as many domains as IP addresses … tell tale sign a PBN has been used to manipulate the site metrics.

Check back as this post is likely to expand rapidly along all of the metrics introduced here.

Speed: Page Load – Technical SEO Out Ranks Most In Mobile

A Case Study of SEO Metrics And Rank

Here is a recently added FAQ to the Ultimate SEO FAQ section.

Let me show you how important it is….desktop vs mobile search results

desktop vs mobile search results

Why is realtor.com not higher than zumper.com in the mobile search on the right?  Consider these metrics

Realtor.com = Domain Score: 55 Trust Score 58 Alexa Rank 763 Registered 1996 Ads 3,900 Backlinks 57,000,000 Traffic Rank 108

Zumper.com = Domain Score: 37 Trust Score 44 Alexa Rank 17,000 Registered 2004 Ads 0 Backlinks 1,700,000 Traffic Rank 2830

In every metric realtor.com wins, so why is it below Zumper.com on the mobile search?

Site Speed Test on GTMetrix

Realtor.com Fails Speed

site speed

site speed

Zumper.com Passes Speed

page load

page load

So in this example we clearly see a more popular site beaten by a less established site and the single only factor the smaller site did better was speed.  And we cant discount this as … well its only important in mobile.  In case you missed it…

60% of searches are mobile

60% of searches are mobile

Now when we consider the facts above lets also dispel people’s over fascination for keywords and text optimization and position of frequency of words, the content length …. on-site SEO, the SEO of the 1990s as I call it… both sites present the same content to the desktop and mobile versions they just differ wildly in the speed.  What are some of the reasons?  Realtor.com decided to present 16 rows of 3 images of homes to visitors while Zumper shows 4 rows of 1 image …. and then additional rows load as you scroll down.  Lazy Load and 1 image vs 3.  Thats how they keep their requests to about a third of the realtor.com page.

What Are Requests?

I’d suggest you think of requests as if they are shots from a gun at your head.  You need to avoid them!  Less shots is a lot better…

Requests are literally requests of the server before the page can load.  If I make a page with one image on it that is one request.  Lets say I decide to replace that image with a slider with 5 slides, now I have 5 requests … the same page area but that cool feature increases the trips required of a computer to quadruple!  Lets say now I add social media icons to the page … Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and an email icon …. small and just up in the right corner.  That social media addition just added 5 more requests.  Think about all the things on your page, they don’t all come together in one big Amazon package with a smile…. they are shipped to the computer individually.  Now I have one page with 1 request and another with 10 and the initial difference isn’t much…that slider only displays one image at a time.

Latency And Requests

Servers don’t respond instantly…they take a little while to think and retrieve the requested resource and then it has to travel the distance from the server to your computer…may be at the speed of light, but light still takes time.  This time is called latency.  50 milliseconds is a good latency.

If both servers in the FAQ had a 50 ms latency.  We can assume that the

Realtor.com server will take 50 ms x 301 requests = 15050 ms or 15 seconds

Zumper.com server will take 50 ms x 134 requests = 6700 ms or 6 seconds  

I hope this explains why you want to limit requests, and prioritize speed as much as you focus on keywords.

Ways To Decrease Requests

Do you need separate images?  On ultimateseo.org I wanted to show my COMPTia certifications.  I have 4 icons … I combined them to make one image.   Thats 1/4 the requests but no change in user experience other than a quicker site.

Lazy Load

Lazy Load also helps speed up the initial page load time.  If “below the fold” you have a lot of images on a page … the page needs those images still to finish the load unless you institute lazy load which essentially tells the computer to load an image only when it is coming into view.  This makes sense likely if you have 300 images on the page and plenty of them are scrolled far down….but all in all I’m on the fence on Lazy Load.  I ran speed tests on the homepage of this site with Lazy Load on …. 3 tests results 2.3 seconds, 1.9 seconds and 1.9 seconds.  I turned off lazy load, and reran the test and got 2.3 seconds, 1.9 seconds and 1.7 seconds.  So technically the site loaded faster with Lazy Load off….keep in mind it take a bit of thinking for the server to implement it. This helps speed up a site drastically if there are a ton of images spread vertically…but not much in a normal page.  What are the full implications on SEO when a site is crawled?

Its suggested by “Ask Yoast” that Lazy Load is fine for SEO and the images are rendered as Google scrolls down the page and indexes the content.

Trace Route Network Tool, Only On A Map

Tracert is a command thats elementary to networking and computers.  Trace Route or Tracert does exactly what it sounds like, and its useful cause it tells ya every ip address it passes through between the server and the catcher (not technical terms there).  It explains where speed issues are in a global perspective or in your home.

Its usually just text but https://www.monitis.com/traceroute/ made it more fun…and from this map I can see why my fiber connection isnt seemingly very fast tonight, I’m being routed through London, England to do a domestic “hop” (hops are each leg of a journey in a tracert.

Bad Backlinks: 100 Sites You Don’t Want A Backlink From.

Bad Backlinks

UltimateSEO.org has backlinks from about a thousand domains.  In a recent review of these I found an odd reoccurring link from multiple domains but all with the same content and titles.  I was introduced with “The Globe” which charges sites to NOT list them or makes money from SEOs paying them to not backlink to them.  At $36 a link they’re likely insane and I bet its bringing in some money.  But before we go all crazy and start paying Ransomlinks (if its not a word I claim it … Ransomlinks are backlinks from bad sites meant to lower your SEO score unless you pay to not be linked too.)

In reviewing the situation I ran across a list of the most disavowed sites.  I figured Id share that with you below, but before I do what outcome did I choose for these bad links pointed to my site?

  1. Option 1 Pay: Heck No! Then the terrorists win.
  2. Disavow: No! Don’t use disavow unless Google has placed a manual action against your site.  I’m skeptical anyhow of the tools purpose and Google itself says there is no need to use the tool unless you’ve been penalized and told by them you are being penalized.
  3. Do Nothing: Yes! Don’t do anything. Google likely knows about the Ransomlinks scheme and has already penalized the site by deindexing it.  There are so many random domains its going to be a mess to address so let it be unless you have a seen a negative affect.  In other words…before you saw your leg off wondering if that spot is cancer…stop and find out.
  4. An idea: 301 Redirect Them…seriously…all of these links point to a subdomain that until now hasn’t existed.  Most others who are talking about this site note a similar subdomain targeted.   I could create the targeted subdomain and redirect all links to it from my site back to theirs.  🙂  

I’m opting for the third as I dont have any indication that Google cares about these Ransomlinks.  They may actually bring some random traffic of use so redirecting them would take that from my site.

MAJOR GOOGLE SEO CHANGE FOR SOME: Website Traffic CREDITED To Where Google Chooses

Wednesday, February 06, 2019

In Search Console, the Performance report currently credits all page metrics to the exact URL that the user is referred to by Google Search. Although this provides very specific data, it makes property management more difficult; for example: if your site has mobile and desktop versions on different properties, you must open multiple properties to see all your Search data for the same piece of content.

To help unify your data, Search Console will soon begin assigning search metrics to the (Google-selected) canonical URL, rather than the URL referred to by Google Search. This change has several benefits:

  • It unifies all search metrics for a single piece of content into a single URL: the canonical URL. This shows you the full picture about a specific piece of content in one property.
  • For users with separate mobile or AMP pages, it unifies all (or most, since some mobile URLs may end up as canonical) of your data to a single property (the “canonical” property).
  • It improves the usability of the AMP and Mobile-Friendly reports. These reports currently show issues in the canonical page property, but show the impression in the property that owns the actual URL referred to by Google Search. After this change, the impressions and issues will be shown in the same property.

Google Search Console

When will this happen?

We plan to transition all performance data on April 10, 2019. In order to provide continuity to your data, we will pre-populate your unified data beginning from January 2018. We will also enable you to view both old and new versions for a few weeks during the transition to see the impact and understand the differences.

API and Data Studio users: The Search Console API will change to canonical data on April 10, 2019.

How will this affect my data?

  • At an individual URL level, you will see traffic shift from any non-canonical (duplicate) URLs to the canonical URL.
  • At the property level, you will see data from your alternate property (for example, your mobile site) shifted to your “canonical property”. Your alternate property traffic probably won’t drop to zero in Search Console because canonicalization is at the page, not the property level, and your mobile property might have some canonical pages. However, for most users, most property-level data will shift to one property. AMP property traffic will drop to zero in most cases (except for self-canonical pages).
  • You will still be able to filter data by device, search appearance (such as AMP), country, and other dimensions without losing important information about your traffic.

You can see some examples of these traffic changes below.

Preparing for the change

  • Consider whether you need to change user access to your various properties; for example: do you need to add new users to your canonical property, or do existing users continue to need access to the non-canonical properties.
  • Modify any custom traffic reports you might have created in order to adapt for this traffic shift.
  • If you need to learn the canonical URL for a given URL, you can use the URL Inspection tool.
  • If you want to save your traffic data calculated using the current system, you should download your data using either the Performance report’s Export Data button, or using the Search Console API.

Examples

Here are a few examples showing how data might change on your site. In these examples, you can see how your traffic numbers would change between a canonical site (called example.com) and alternate site (called m.example.com).

Important: In these examples, the desktop site contains all the canonical pages and the mobile contains all the alternate pages. In the real world, your desktop site might contain some alternate pages and your mobile site might contain some canonical pages. You can determine the canonical for a given URL using the URL Inspection tool.

Total traffic

In the current version, some of your traffic is attributed to the canonical property and some to the alternate property. The new version should attribute all of your traffic to the canonical property.

Canonical property
(http://example.com)
Alternate property
(http://m.example.com)
Current
New, based on canonical URLs
Change +0.7K     |        +3K -0.7K        |          -3K

Individual page traffic

You can see traffic changes between the duplicate and canonical URLs for individual pages in the Pages view. The next example shows how traffic that used to be split between the canonical and alternate pages are now all attributed to the canonical URL:

Canonical property
(http://example.com)
Alternate property
(http://m.example.com)
Old
New
Change +150     |        +800 -150     |        -800

Mobile traffic

In the current version, all of your mobile traffic was attributed to your m. property. The new version attributes all traffic to your canonical property when you apply the “Device: Mobile” filter as shown here:

Canonical property
(http://example.com)
Alternate property
(http://m.example.com)
Old
New
Change +0.7K      | +3K -0.7K      | -3K

In conclusion

We know that this change might seem a little confusing at first, but we’re confident that it will simplify your job of tracking traffic data for your site. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out on the Webmaster Help Foru
