After the discovery of penalized sites still ranking in local, what is the tipping point of bad/spammy backllinks negatively effecting local rankings? The reason that I ask is that we have had several clients come to us with great on-site and off-site SEO but have a ton (ranging from 900-1,900) backlinks from completely unrelated sites. We have gotten some of these clients to rank well despite these setbacks without touching backlinks because their budget doesn't allow a good cleaning but others seem to completely hindered from moving past page 3. Most of these clients are in either DUI or PI Law. Any help is appreciated!
