So what is this going to do for my site if I get bad links removed or disavowed, in recovering from the latest Google Penguin 2.0 update?
If you have been hit by Google Penguin, then it is more than likely that it is because of previous link building efforts that were in the past allowed or approved by Google, which now fall under the definition of a poor quailty or spam link. Your past SEO consultant or firm, should not be blamed in most cases, as in all likelihood it was these very links that had created for you, that Google previously allowed and rewarded you with top rankings, that have now become their target of discredit.
Google love to move the goal posts, so there is no point in blaming past SEO works, as the way forward to change strategies and recover into the post Google Penguin world. The way the Google algorithm works, is by assessing the quality or value of inbound links that point at your website. If it sees too many unnatural looking links, then this can trigger the penalty. It is an automatic cause and result effect that takes place. This is not the workings of an manual review, as there simply are not enough workers at Google to manually review the trillions of web pages in existence. By identifying and removing the offending links, your site has it’s best chance of post-Penguin recovery. For links that can’t be removed due to unco-operative webmasters, the last resort is to use the Google disavow tool. Now here is where we can help with this dauting task that confronts you.
Link Removal and Disavow Services
The first place we start is to do an inbound link profile audit. This is a comprehensive analysis of your website’s link profile that gives you a clear indication of where the links are coming from, and how trusted they are. We identify links that should be removed and or disavowed as the case may dicatate. Once the list has been created, we make efforts to contact the site owners or webmasters requesting that each link they control be removed. If our link removal requests are unsuccessful, then we move these links over to the list for disavow via the Google disavow tool.
Step 1: Conduct an inbound link or backlink audit on your site, to analyze which links are necessary for removal or disavowal.
Step 2: We can attempt to have the links removed on your behalf, otherwise this task is handled by your webmaster. If you wish to use our services for this, the additional fee of $2 per unique domain is applicable for us to attempt to have the links removed.
Step 3: The next step is to gather domain contact information from each website identified. If contact information is available for the identified domain, then we contact the webmaster via email with the link removal request. Any unsuccessful link removal requests are noted and the domains or urls are flagged to be moved to the disavow list.
Step 4: In order to get the attention of webmasters we use a well refined email template that has a proven track record of success. This forms one out reach to the domain in question. If a contact form is available on the website in question, this is used instead of email. Thirty days after the audit list has been created and link removal request attempts recorded as: removed, no response, or not available, we will provide you with the completed spreadsheet report. Due to the nature of how websites are constructed and maintained, we can offer no guarantee that any links will be completely removed. This is up to the cooperation of each individual webmaster, who is the person in control of the inbound links.
Step 5: All failed link removal requests are placed in the disavow recommendation report. This is how we can help you to recover from a Google Penguin penalty, and completes the process for helping you to get your rankings back. Cost of Service:

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is it necessary to actually request the removal of bad links or can just disavow them? A: This question was put to Matt Cutts, head of the Google Webspam Team, by Danny Sullivan from Search Engineland. “Is it okay to just use the disavow tool without having to request the link be removed first? Matt’s reply was that would not be a good idea.
