About Unnatural inbound Link pattern?



New Member
We've removed all our unnatural links after getting hurt from google manual penalty for Unnatural links. But google is still considering links on Branded term coming from the Author Bio as an unnatural link pattern.
For example,
"XYZ working as a reactjs developer at which deals in a mobile app solution. XYZ also likes to write on different mobile technologies and with keen interest on mobile app development platforms."
Google identify link on as an unnatural link. How come link on Branded term is considered as a Unnatural Links?
Let me know if you have experienced such manual penalty like the way we're experiencing? Any Help would be appreciated.

It's hard to say for sure without looking at your backlink profile, but any backlinks intentionally build which are not natural are in theory "unnatural".

If you've gone crazy with link building, guest posting or other the top with any other form of linking then it's likely that you've brought some unwanted attention your way, meaning your will need to be sqeeky clean before a manual review is approved.

Also its worth checking on more than one backlink search tool, different tools can show different results so there maybe links you've missed that still need to be removed or disavowed.

Manual penalties are never fun and massively frustrating because alot of the guess work that goes into fixing them.

Good luck.

The most frequently experienced Google manual penalty by far is the one applied as a consequence of unnatural inbound links to a website. Affected sites are deemed to be engaging in link schemes (link building intended to manipulate Google rankings),which Google considers a major violation.
