Monitoring for Google Penalties
Sometimes we find out that we have a Google Penalty only when we notice that our website can no longer be located in the Google search results. Discovering a Google penalty this ways is a very reactive approach. There are more proactive approaches to monitor your website for any issues that could result in a Google penalty.
One of the best ways to monitor your website and help avoid potential Google Penalties is to register your website with Google Search Console (formerly know as Google Webmaster Tools). If that is something that you need help with, contact us today for a free quote.
