    2,000 Back Links


    Hello,

    I'm after a bit of advice. I did a bit of directory posting a few months back for a certain website, i submitted four links to specific pages on my website to a certain directory. However now, a few months down the line when I did a backlink scan I found I had over 2,000 links from this one directory! Could you advice me on what to do. Should I report it to google, use the Google Disavow tool or just leave them there?

    Thank you

    If it's a spammy type directory (basically a link farm) start by trying to get it removed from the directory

    just try to remove those links it will affect your website definitely. Google can penalized you for getting too many links in a short time period.

    If the same number of links were from an authority site (like iTunes or play store) that would be beneficial for your site. 2000 links from a simple site will not help you anyway specially after penguin updates, and when it is a directory then it will surely harm you.
    Either contact the directory support for removing the links or use Google's disavow tool.
