What are algorithmic penalties?

Algorithmic penalties refer to instances what a website consistently loses rankings and traffic, without receiving a formal notification in Google Search Console (as is the case with manual actions/penalties).

Types of algorithmic penalties:

There are various algorithmic penalties, including:

  • Panda (content-related)
  • Penguin (backlink-related)
  • Mobile-Friendly (architecture-related)
  • Top Heavy (content/advertising-related)

Diagnosis and removal.

Given that Google provides no formal notification, these penalties are difficult to diagnose and treat. Nevertheless, there are various analyses which we can do to identify problems and develop solutions. Naturally, given the nature of these penalties, we cannot provide a firm guarantee, as we do on our other services.
