I appreciate your comment. It’s so interesting to see how Google treats link ghosts and echoes. It’s good to know that the hard work of getting strong links doesn’t disappear when a page updates or changes.

Nice Post!

If we move a page up in rankings by pointing links to it, and then remove those links, the bump in rankings often remains.

1. This is a proof on how Google keeps all historical data of links. You made the test with links that provide ranking benefits, but also think in terms of toxic links and their long lasting ghost effect. I wonder if Black Hats already use that technique.

2. Google may have a historical data of all anchor text variations of a given link (and this could be a ranking factor as well, for example if anchor text is regularly adjusted may result in a penalty). And I guess this historical data lasts a lot more than 6 months.

3. In terms of disavowing links – maybe it will be a good idea regarding Penguin to disavow ghost links as well (or the complete domains) just in case, even if those links were removed.

I will tweet your post.

Thanks a lot for sharing.
