Link building is an essential part of your SEO strategy, but many times what you need to focus on is getting rid of all the bad links pointing back to your website, and not on building more.
How do you do that?
One of the easiest ways is to go to a system like SEM Rush and run a backlink audit on your website.
We ran this one on the dburnsdesign.com website, and this is what we found.
I found all of these 100% toxic links (they range from 0 to 100) – which I have no idea where they came from. SEM Rush makes it very easy for you to tag and delete/disavow these links.
Once they are deleted, Google will reindex your website. You will have less inbound links, but your average link quality will go up tremendously, and this, will result in a bump in SERP!
Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!
