I am very proud to be associated with LRT so it was a real pleasure to finally meet everyone face-to-face to share ideas and best practices.
Hot topics of the day were:
- The widely anticipated roll-out of Penguin 3.0
- Link Risk Management
- Exciting developments forecast for Link Research Tools
- How to recover from a Google Manual Penalty
Myself and Rick Lomas also had the opportunity to present our “15 Minutes of Fame”.
Reversing Google Manual Actions
I was happy to share my knowledge and I explained some of my penalty recovery workflow and also shared some of my productivity tips for helping clients reverse Google Manual Actions.
We have had many successful reconsideration requests with our clients at Backlink Surgeon so it was nice to be able to share my insights with a group of talented SEO’s that I trust.
I’m hoping the talk was well received – here’s what Christoph had to say about it:
Welcoming Two New LRT Xperts
Two of my good friends, Bartosz Góralewicz and Guntram Bechtold graduated as LRT Xperts on the day, joining Harald Tschuggnall and I as the first 4 people globally to be recognised with Link Research Tools Xpert status.
My new friend, Christiaan Bollen also received his “LRT Professional” status.
Here he is in the middle sharing a congratulatory ‘selfie’ with me and Harry:
It wasn’t all hard work though…
Christoph was an absolutely fantastic host and after a delicious meal we had a night of partying to wind down.

Shout out to Lorant of CatbirdSeat who is at the far right of the picture. I met so many great people at the event, unfortunately too many to mention!
I really enjoyed the company of every single person at the event and I’m looking forward to seeing them all again next year!
P.s. We learned about some epic features that are going to be rolled out very soon for Link Research Tools, they are top secret at the moment but will be coming in the months ahead and are very exciting indeed.
