    Ahhhh I was told to have them open in a new page so it kept my site going longer - I didn’t realize it could be annoying !! Thanks!

    S'up to you, I'd personally remove though. If not, do nofollow them though, won't be doing your site any good
    How is creating a product and putting a price tag on it terrible? You can't steal it just because you think it's priced too high.

    I've had this issue before debating with myself as to whether it's ethical or not.

    I'm pretty sure WordPress is classed as open source, so you can remove the links and it's perfectly legal to do so. This is the answer I got when looking it up anyway.

    There is a price the developer charges to use his theme, it's $99 or a link. When you remove the link without paying you are stealing imo

    This may be changing with Google Dynamic Ads - https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2471185?hl=en

    This gives Google a motivation to crawl your site in detail - I have no evidence if it is effecting organic at the moment but it would not surprise me if it started creeping in .....

    I have to agree - I’m kind of that person who wants to do things the right way. I don’t like to pull one over on someone. As th site is just ran through Wordpress it’s a pro photo site with pro photo rights - part of their cost is likely due to the backlinks they are receiving. So $99 to remove the link - I think it’s fair

    Hi Nicolalane,
    You need to fix any site technical problems as described above.

    Google Adword programs do not impact on generic search results.

    Whatever is changing its ranking, it is NOT your competitor's Adword campaign.

    A major change in G's recent ranking changes can involve the location of the website and the searcher. I don't see much evidence on your site of defining your location.

    What is the search query where your ranking has dropped? Are you checking your ranking on a mobile phone or desktop?

    We can't offer much useful search ranking input without this info.
