    Just logged into Google WMT to see if I had any of the "Detected unnatural links" messages that are doing the rounds just now and sure enough I have!

    So my best sites are now in the firing line!

    Any ideas on what to do from here?

    I am pretty sure they are just spamming that letter to anyone that has sites in WMT as a fishing expedition or scare tactic. I have one site in WMT and it received the letter. The rest of my sites did not because they are not in GWMT. O

    f course I would never put it past google to just sack 60% of their search results on a whim.

    How could your other sites receive this email if they're NOT in GWT?

    Exactly.

    Oh wait were you serious?

    LOL ok maybe I can slow down.

    If they are planning on penalizing websites for "bad links" and they send emails "warning" those on GWMT. Then those that are not (the vast majority you would have to assume) would be penalized without the email....Lots of these emails means exponentially more websites that happen to be in the cross hairs that dont get the email. The only conclusion we can come up with, if we ignore the ones I touched on, is that G wants to completely clear out its search results to paper thin to let Bing win the SE race. Or they hate that use their GWMT and want to ***** them over.

    You would get the same message for your other sites if you had them in GWT.

    Obviously, Ignoring messages, not adding sites to GWT is not a solution, whether you receive a message or not, sites with 'unnatural links' will get affected,

    I don't think it's a fishing tactic at all. 99% of the folks on here use spammy link building techniques, build ultra lousy affiliate sites and put junk content on them.


    Well if you are going to put out a number like that you should have some evidence to back it up.......

    If not then you should not be posting it as fact.....

    Sometimes I have a link in my signature to a product. If I do assume it is an affiliate link and I might make a couple of bucks off it...................................

    Sounds like you got butthurt. But tell me how you have any bit of insight into what 99% of people here do or don't do?

    I do not fall into that category, my site is listed in DMOZ and contains nothing but high quality, original content.

    Never been butthurt but I know for a fact that most of your sites are junk, plain and simple. How many of you make affiliate sites for products you've actually used? If your site isn't good enough to earn natural links then it's junk, pure and simple. That's why most of you folks have to make artifical links and have someone else write your content..it's a joke and I cannot wait until Google pwns you all.


    Then show just one of my sites that you know for a fact I own. If you can't then quit running your trap and cry about "bad" IMrs that kick your ass somewhere else.

    I resent your comment. I'll have you know that I have used many products that help me determine when my menstrual cycle stops and starts.

    "Detected unnatural links" or not, it's business as usual for me.

    Well guys nows the time to dump a whole heap of articles into ALN, point the links at your competitors and watch them roll. As Matt Cutts says in his tweet, these networks are clearly a target...How quickly do you think we could knock out his own personal blog?? :-)

    well it could be an indication they are basically weeding out everyone on the aln network. This will get most of us de indexed then rofl. got there would be millions of sites with posts on that network.

    Guys, It's not a scare tactic. I received the letter 2 weeks ago and didn't act. Yesterday my site dropped to more than 100 after being top 3 with 6 keywords for 2 years. I was using blog networks and blog posts but nothing aggressive.

    1 page still ranking #4, because I never used blog networks for it.


    So your implying it is not a side wide penalty but a per page penalty here? That would be good

    do nothing mate...
    Google would not drop your ranks because of un natural links..
    Except if you are on a very competitive niche...
