In my sec­ond blog about mar­ket­ing pet peeves, I talk about the mis­use of links. There are lots of ways peo­ple and sites mis­use links. If you’re not care­ful, cer­tain links to your site can harm your Google rank­ing in search results or do even more damage.

But there’s a way to get rid of bad links. In a how-to blog, SEO4World talks about the Google Dis­avow Tool and how it can help you improve your Google rank­ing by let­ting you dis­avow bad links and their asso­ci­a­tion to your site.

Bad links can come from spam blogs, link exchanges, or even shoddy con­tent. You don’t want to asso­ciate with bad links like these because they will harm your rep­u­ta­tion and vis­i­bil­ity. Take a look at the blog at SEO4World, and see how you can improve your stand­ing in the search world of Google.
