    Post How to remove my website link from web directory?


    Few days ago, I had submitted my site into some directories. Today, just I am shocked. Some of the directories are create 200/300 links of my site with one anchor text. I couldn't find any way to remove my links from them. Because, they don't remove link before 1 year. Is there any way to remove link without requesting directory owners. Plz, help me.

    You can't remove them but you should disavow all the offending domains.

    Just to expand on IvanDrago's response,

    Use Google's disavow tool - you can find it here, https://www.google.com/webmasters/to...vow-links-main

    The purpose of this tool is to indicate to Google that you know these links are of poor quality and for Google to disregard them in their link algorithm and when assessing the quality of your site.

    When you use the tool, please be specific about how you disavow - it looks like you have Ahrefs already which is a great place to start and I reference this post for a solid process of disavowing,

    https://moz.com/blog/guide-to-googles-disavow-tool

    This tool wont give you instant results and can take a while before it is full processed (i.e., the links have been re-crawled for Google to know not to count them any more.) but is the best way forward for you.

    Google doesn't add any value in those site's anyway dont let it rent to much space in your head. And stop submitting your site to those link farms.

    Try to correct the data in the directory. If you can edit the direct link, you can fix the problem.

    Initially, If you have the directories credentials, try to remove the link manually. If not then create and submit disavow file in search console. Within a week or so, you will notice that the number of links starts going down.

    May it is possible to remove the link but why do hard work if you can remove it with the help of one click using Google's disavow tool.
    just paste that URL of that domain in disavow tool and relax.
