Is there a way to remove or block external backlinks? There was a drop in the Google results from page 1-2 to page > 8.

I am now looking at the external backlinks and I see now multiple domains that I don't want them to be linked to our website ( sex sites, spi directories, ... ).

Also I have a domain with >1300 links on 1 page ( I see this in Google webmaster tools ). Can this also be the reason of the drop?

  • You should try this : Change your page's address (page's file name), so when Google update directory index, the new page will be indexed and that backlinks will not work. Commented Aug 14, 2014 at 8:10
  • What if they link to our domain? http://www.example.be/

  • You should also track where a visitor is coming from to your site, by code. Then you can redirect unwanted traffics to your site. This is possible in Asp.Net Commented Aug 14, 2014 at 8:34

If you think that a particular link is negatively affecting your SEO, you can use the Disavow Tool. Using this tool, you can ask Google to ignore a particular backlink (or backlinks from a particular domain). Note: You should make sure that these links hold no value before you attempt to disavow them.
