Free Link Remover Tool – PRO

Free Link Remover Tool – PRO

You’ve probably heard a whole lot about the Perils of the Penguin…

The Google algorithm update recently trashed a lot of websites and businesses.  According to the general concensus on Penguin, it now factors ‘bad’ backlinks as a penalty against your site.  Bad backlinks are links on pages which are low or zero value.

So because of this, a lot of people are trying to get rid of the bad backlinks (wise move).

You want to get rid of the bad (very low quality) backlinks pointing to your site.  It is also in your interest to get rid of the links on your site pointing to other sites which are either not relevant or low quality.

So if you receive an email requesting you to remove a link on your site, it is a fair thing to do (for their sake) and a wise thing to do (for your sake).

Depending on how your website is built, this can be quite a hassle – to go into your site’s administration area, try to find all the links pointing to that specific other site and then removing them.

What if you had a plugin where you could simply say what URL you wanted to delete and it searched your entire site and deleted all instances of that URL?

Luckily, we have a free tool – a WordPress plugin called “Link Removal Tool” – that will do all this for you.  I am giving it away free.

Why give it away free?  I say “share the love!”

I had this WordPress plugin built for my own use within my company.  It cleans out links that are already on my site (‘the past’) and it filters new blog posts, when they are published (‘the present’).

The Link Removal Tool LITE is WordPress.org repository. NOTE the Lite version is limited to only 1 URL and cannot replace, future-schedule or wildcard-clean.

The Pro version (below) is FREE and offers all these benefits.

  1. You can add unlimited URLs as you want
  2. Future check. Your site will scan and stop any bad link URLs going onto your site ever again
  3. Wildcard option. Click here for details
  4. REPLACE URL option (or delete). Replace with a good URL.
  5. Centralized URL list option. Apply the same URL rules to any or all of your sites.

So click this button to get the FREE Pro version

The PRO version (FREE) is available when you click this button…
Get Access

IMPORTANT: Before you install this Pro version, FIRST deactivate & delete the ‘Lite’ version, then install the PRO.

Instructions in text are below.  For a quick fly-through, watch this video…

You simply install the plugin on your website (or websites – no license restriction here – put it on all your sites if you want), installing as a normal WordPress plugin, in the normal way – Left menu > Plugins > Add New.

Then you’ll see “Link Remover” in the left menu – click that.

To clear out an existing link:

  1. Type or paste in the URL into the “New keyword/URL” box.  It is best to use the root domain, without the “http://” part and without the “www.” part – i.e. only just “domain.com” (without the ” quote marks)
  2. Select the “URL” radio button option (not the “Keyword” option)
  3. Click “Add”.  At this stage, your site still has the previous links on it, but it will not be able to add a link to that domain.com in new posts.
  4. Click “Clear all posts”.

NEW: “Replace” option
Now you can find and replace any specific URL with another URL.

Maybe you want to promote a different URL or service – replace all of the old URLs with the new one in about 7 seconds.

Wildcard Option
NOTE: The * wildcard character can be used if you wan to remove EVERY link in ALL of your posts and pages.  This is heavy duty. This effectively wipes the slate clean.  You can then deactivate the plugin (or delete the entry with the * by clicking the “delete” link) and add back in any links you want.

How do I use the ‘wildcard’ option?

The wildcard option simply means using the * asterix character instead of specifying a URL. This will then remove ALL hyperlinks from your entire site. This might be what you want if your site has too many outgoing links, for example if you have had auto-content going into your site which has outgoing links in the content.

“I want to use the wildcard option but I still need to keep a small number of links”
The wildcard option will delete every hyperlink in your blog – posts and pages. Understandably, you will probably have pages or posts which have links you want to keep. Here is how to do this

  1. In your WordPress admin go to left menu > Posts
  2. Right click on each post which has links you want to keep. Open in NEW window (or tab). This is opening the content WITH the links in.
  3. Repeat that process for all posts and all PAGES which have links you want to keep
  4. Use the wildcard option and remove all links in your site. To do this, select “URL” (not “keyword”), put the * character in the URL box and click “Clear all posts”.
  5. IMPORTANT – Deactivate the free Link Removal Tool plugin
  6. Go to each open browser window/tab for each post/page you want to keep the links in and SAVE. This will then save back the links
  7. Reactivate Link Removal Tool plugin

Central List

If you want to use the central list option (where all your sites use the same single central list of URLs to clean) then define the URL location of that central file that in the “Settings” page.

If you’re not using the central list option, just make sure the box is empty on the “Settings” page.

If you want to use the central list option, here is the file you need to upload to your central location >> this is the central list file (you need to install the main plugin on each site, then tell each site to use the one single central list)

Bad Link Removal

What this plugin does not do, is get rid of your bad backlinks on other ‘bad’ sites, which link to your own site.  To do that a whole different approach and system is needed.

You need to figure out which of your backlinks is ‘bad’ (I’ll show you how in a minute), then contact them as persuasively as possible, getting them to remove the link. It doesnt always work. You need to communicate in the most persuasive, ‘psychologically triggered’ way…

The good news is that we have a FREE package which you can download by clicking this button below – plus you get the step-by-step instructions of how to clear it all up.

    Hi, Neat post. There’s an issue with your web site in web explorer, would test this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a large portion of people will miss your great writing due to this problem.

  • Kenny April 24, 2013, 3:39 pm

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get three e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

    • Duncan April 25, 2013, 7:05 pm

      Hi Kenny,
      Yes. The email in question is sent out by the WordPress website platform system. On the bottom of every such comment-notification email there is an unsubscribe link which you can use if and when you choose

  • Alfred April 27, 2013, 5:22 pm

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your post seem to be running off
    the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
    let you know. The design look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

    • Duncan April 28, 2013, 12:16 pm

      Hi ALfred,

      I appreeciate your feedback. We’ve checked it in numerous browsers and versions of browsers and its all looking OK. It is an HTM5 theme now so it is all up to date.



  • Brock April 30, 2013, 8:21 pm

    Very energetic post, I enjoyed that a lot. Will there be a part 2?

    • Duncan May 2, 2013, 12:54 pm

      Hi Brock,

      I’m not sure there needs to be a part 2 – what more do you want? Let me know how I can help.

      You should have everyting you need here – just download and install the plugin (its free) and get it on your site.

      Good luck – and if you have any questions, let me know

  • Kearns May 2, 2013, 4:42 pm

    Greetings! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!

    • Duncan May 3, 2013, 3:23 am


      Most HTML5 new themes should be mobile-ready and responsive. You might look at themeforest.com or templatemonster.com or the genesis theme. It mostly depends on how you want you site to look and ‘feel’.

      Good luck

  • Carol Forsloff February 13, 2014, 3:40 pm

    Your ideas are excellent with respect to both outsourcing and link removal concerns. Having been victimized by a scammer and someone I had hired as an editor, this is particularly helpful. Many thanks for this.

  • Kamil October 31, 2014, 1:29 pm

    Something is wrong with the activation.
    On one side of the message with an activation link came on three websites did not come.

    • Duncan November 3, 2014, 7:01 am

      Hi Kamil,

      I saw you had applied 15+ times and had emailed you asking if you had an error. Please email me with more detail of the exact problem and we’ll get our Progremmer to look into it for you



  • technofranchise December 11, 2014, 2:09 am

    Dude ! this is the best article ever written on this subject

    • Duncan December 11, 2014, 4:22 am

      Thank you so much. The link to your website (removed) in this comment didnt have anything to do with you making the comment 😉

  • Penelope March 10, 2015, 7:29 am

    I’ve just sing up for the pro version, and I hvae a email that says “you’re activated” without link for confirmation, and I cant use the plguing cause It’s still asking me for name and email…
    also, reviews with g+ (here in your site) are not working.

    • Duncan March 20, 2015, 6:20 am


      The activation link is in an email which is automatically generated by your website and sent to your email address. Have a look in your inbox and your spam folder.


  • edupoint September 22, 2015, 2:29 am

    thank you for sharing.
    I have installed the plugin. tried it. but, how do I know and be sure the links are removed?

    • Duncan September 22, 2015, 4:12 am

      Simply manually visit a handful of the links to see if they have been removed/replaced.

      • Arian February 17, 2016, 3:37 am

        I am not getting any email.I can’t activate Pro Version.Please help.

        • Duncan February 17, 2016, 4:51 am

          Hi Arian,

          The activation email is sent out from your own website’s server using the PHP email command. It does not come centrally from us. Either you have the email in an different email folder (check spam etc) or your server cannot send email. Check all email folders and let me know using the contact page.

          Good luck,


  • Daniel March 20, 2016, 1:46 pm

    I am not getting any email.I can’t activate Pro Version. Already checked the spam folder

    • Duncan March 21, 2016, 6:47 am


      The email is sent automatically from your website server. If you are not getting the email it is 99% of the time because either
      a) your web server cannot send email, or
      b) it has sent it and the email is in another folder eg in spam.

      I can manually acativate it for you. I have emailed you separetly about this.


  • Nevil April 27, 2016, 12:17 am

    I’m not getting the activation email for some reason.
    Please help.

    • Duncan June 8, 2016, 4:44 am


      Same as above – The email is sent out by your site’s server. If your server cannot send email then it will not do this. It may have been sent and got filtered into your spam folder

  • Rich May 25, 2016, 1:26 pm

    I registered for pro and never received the email.

    • Duncan June 8, 2016, 4:43 am

      The email is sent out by your site’s server. If your server cannot send email then it will not do this. It may have been sent and got filtered into your spam folder
