Google’s Matt Cutts posted the update on recent Link warning notification!Posted by on July 23, 2012 12:20 PM
On Friday, Google began sending out a new batch of link warning notifications. And it created a vast amount of confutation and in some cases, anger.
Google’s Matt Cutts posted the update on his Google+ page saying that these notifications can be ignored. Ignored! Yes, ignored!
Here is the detail: “Thanks to everyone who gave feedback on this change. An engineer worked over the weekend based on the suggestions here, and starting on Sunday we made two changes so you can tell the "individual links aren't trusted" messages from the "our opinion of your entire site is affected" messages.
First off, we changed the messages themselves that we'll send out to make it clear that for a specific incident "we are taking very targeted action on the unnatural links instead of your site as a whole." So anyone that gets a message going forward can tell what type of action has occurred.
The second change is that these messages won't show the yellow caution sign in our webmaster console at http://google.com/webmasters/ like our other webspam notifications. This reflects the fact that these actions are much more targeted and don't always require action by the site owner.
Thanks again for the feedback, and we'll continue to work on ways to provide more useful and actionable information for site owners.”
