UK Brand sites falling like flies – Brand Penalties by Google
So far when it came to SEO – one of the biggest complaint was you are OK if you are a brand.
Looks like Matt Cutts has had a change of heart and is hammering UK brands one after the other. The latest wave of COMPLETE sitewide penalties are:
- Links of London
- Brand Republic
- Bright Local
- Blue Banana
This is Cornwall
- Travel Bag
- Nationwide Vehicle Contracts
Update: Looks like their site moved to westbriton.co.uk – so maybe not a penalty hat tip https://twitter.com/101holidays.
In addition to 10 I am already under NDA not to discuss – although it shouldnt be hard to find out which ones with a bit of work.
A private source tells me that a Google Reps are adding to the chaos:
A Google rep told a client I pitched to that “SEO agencies will be dead and buried in the next few years.”
My advice? Keep calm. Carry on Removing.
