- Here is an interesting article http://www.sociableblog.com/2012/04/27/rand-fishkin-challenges-to-take-down-seomoz/Apr 26, 2012
- Rebecca, since SEOMoz announced that in the public, Google already knows that and they will prevent any damages. At some point we have to give up wish thinking?Apr 26, 2012
- Yes, I think u r right, I have a question - Is this the way to prevent Google's penalty? :)Apr 27, 2012
- there is no 100% way to defend yourself from being hit from Google due to toxic inbound links build against your web site.
It is advisable to build quality links to your web site in a natural way, writing content which would be attractive and engaging for users to boost your site authority. The higher authority your site would achieve, that harder would be to get affected from such damages.
SEOMoz has reached an authority that is very hard to get damaged from such unethical attempts.
But in case that would ever happen to you, which does not happen so often, then you should make the effort to contact all those sites webmasters, kindly requesting them to remove those links. But give them some time to reply.
Once you did all that, file a re-inclusion request to Google, explaining in details about all your efforts done, including the list of those URLs.
You can find most the links pointing to your web site in your Google Webmasters tools, or you can use a tool called Majestic SEO, and here are some tips howto use it for such a case: http://blog.majesticseo.com/training/unnatural-links-investigations/Apr 27, 2012
Do you have any idea how out of synch the "Links to Website" tool in Google Webmaster Tools is? As a web company for over 10 years we had many websites that naturally linked to us - ont he footer - and so we had many websites with SITEWIDE links to us. Some of these websites were 200,000+ pages.
Even though these were old websites that hadnt been touched for years we have painstakingly gone and put nofollows on most of these and delted a bunch more all together. Again, even though in our opinion they were natural links. We built all the websites.
Problem is - the GWT tool is not showing any of those changes - even though we updated these sites 3 weeks ago.
Have you any thoughts on this?

- Carlos I am not sure how frequently Google synchs the "Links to Website" tool. If you did your homework, there is no reason you should worry. Google picks up the changes and store them internally, and later they export them in the GWT. Makes sense?Apr 30, 2012
