Google Webmaster Tool : Google Webmaster Tools notice of detected unnatural links on

    This is the message that greeted me this morning on Google Webmaster Tool. My site is about 4 years old, never had such problems (the first in my signature).
    "We’ve detected that some or all of your pages are using techniques that are outside our quality guidelines, which are available here: http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=35769&hl=en.

    What does this mean?

    Have you noticed a large drop in SERPS? Was the drop for all pages or just some pages. I'm just wondering why I haven't received this message yet because the act of backlinking is unnatural in itself.

    never heard of it before, that google actually send a message about such thing. But maybe google refer to your footer links. Some of them are not related to your site topic.

    The footer links are placed by TNX link selling program, but that should not matter. Anyway, if someone hears something like this, please reply. Need help here guys.

    Its definitely because of TNX. I received the same message for my travel blog and it is using TNX as well. Remove TNX and ask for a reinclusion.

    I don't know if removing follow will change it. But it's something you probably won't want to try in case it just doesn't matter if they're nofollow or not.

    The link they gave me (in my first post) is misleading me to think of reciprocal linking. Don't you agree?

    That pretty much is reciprocal linking, manipulating pagerank and selling links that manipulate pagerank. I'd get it out of there ASAP.

    Just happened to me I have to assume the sponsoring of wordpress themes is the culprit. I do not know what to do as there is no way to get the links removed + most are encrypted. Has anyone recovered from this? My pages are still listed in google but are -50 so show on page 6

    Danmarius,

    Can you share after you received notice was there any impact on the SERP for any particular pages or whole domain? Has the situation corrected itself?

    I would advise that you should mail Google for more details about your problem. Answers here wont be specifically direct, try to get in touch with Google and Im sure they will be more than willing to help you out.

    that’s unusual. I heard about it for the first time. Google is really unpredictable
