How to Recover from Dropped Google Rankings?

Category: Articles • August 30, 2022

In this industry if your Google rankings drop below the top 3  in Google Maps or in Google organic, the phone calls just plain stop coming in.

Recently, there’s been a lot of changes going on in Google and we’ve had a flurry of clients coming to us that have been hammered from those changes. Their site’s rankings went from top 3 phone call positions to non-phone call positions, sometimes within a week or two.

This is a problem that we have successfully repaired for well over a decade. The sources of damage causing these rapid drops in Google to eliminate your site from the higher rankings, can range from anything from destructive software, spammy SEO techniques, duplicating content, bad back linking, old SEO techniques, etc.

I’ve said this for years: anyone can get some Google rankings up with some minor techniques, but what really separates the men from the boys in this industry, is if you can get them up and keep them up. Or better yet, get them back after they’ve dropped. And our track record in this industry in doing so is unmatched. I won’t tell you how many people have come to us to try to white label our service as theirs, but it’s a lot and it’s the Who’s Who in the business. 

One of our favorite customers is the customer who leaves us to go somewhere else thinking that the grass is greener and then comes back. We’re not offended, we’re happy that they want to try something else and not only did they see what else is out there, but I saw that the damage was done to their program from trying sub par programs.

When you use us for your SEO, realize that you’re getting one of the most experienced, technically advanced SEO teams creating the most  long-term and stable programs out there. 

Here’s an example of results for one of our current clients after a Google change recovery:
