The Client: Web Drive

Web Drive is New Zealand’s largest web hosting provider with over 25,000 customers and 50 staff.

The Challenge

The web hosting market is one of the most competitive spaces online. Web Drive approached eMagic after their site was penalised in Google as a result of spammy link building work carried out by their previous SEO company. This resulted in a huge loss of organic search visibility and revenue.


Their priority was to recover their organic search engine rankings and establish themselves as the leader in the New Zealand web hosting space.

Our Solution

eMagic immediately identified the type of Google penalty Web Drive had been impacted by, isolated the cause, and executed an effective SEO recovery plan. This involved a comprehensive link profile audit, unnatural link removal strategy and disavow file submission. We also implemented best practice SEO solutions to address the way they were linking between their own sites and from customer domain placeholder pages.


The recovery plan was combined with an effective link acquisition strategy to improve the quality of Web Drives link profile and their websites authority and trust within Google. This involved competitive analysis to identify SEO opportunities and a strategic content marketing plan.
