Google penalty recovery that makes life easy
Google Penalties occur when your site does not follow Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. Some penalties are simply a result of updates in the algorithm, whereas others are in response to black-hat SEO tactics (that you might now even know you are doing).
The whole point of these penalties is to promote high-quality, relevant content on search engines. However, this can have negative repercussions on your unsuspecting business. Once you receive a penalty, your website will struggle to show up on search engines and rank for keywords – which can have a detrimental affect on your business.
That’s where Lightbox comes in: we ensure that your website complies with any changes in the algorithm as well as ensuring that your content is providing quality information for your consumers (without keyword stuffing, data issues, duplicate content or corrupted links).
Do you want your business back on search engines?
In most cases, a lot of people are unaware that they have been using black hat SEO tactics which is why most turn to an SEO agency for help. Some SEO agencies still use black hat techniques today which isn’t advised as most penalties hit hard. Below are some ways in which your website could be penalised:
- Unnatural links (spammy, or paid links)
- Thin poor quality content
- “Black Hat” SEO shortcuts
How do I know if my website has been hit by a Google Penalty?
In some cases, it is not always obvious to tell whether you’ve been hit by a Google Penalty with Google updates and fluctuations happening all the time. Google is like the police of the internet, they want the good websites praised and the bad websites out. There is no way of blind eyeing Google one way or another you will get found. Google crawls websites constantly weeding out the websites that are using black hat techniques.
This is where keeping an organised record of your web traffic, conversions and engagement is important as it is much easier to see any changes. At Lightbox, we provide up to date reports to ensure consistent growth and also identify if you have been penalised by Google – and how to fix it.
If your site has a bounce rate of more than 50% (average time users spend on your site is less than 30 seconds), your site could be penalised.
Only 5% of penalised websites submit a reconsideration request every month.
Google updates their algorithm roughly 500 times a year.

Once found we then reverse the effect of the penalty by fixing the issues by removing any spam where necessary and padding out content, removing duplicates and the rest. Once the underlying problem has been resolved then we simply ask for a Google penalty reconsideration, which is essentially a plea for forgiveness and asking Google to reconsider.
