On Saturday, many webmasters received a stinging letter from Google that begins: “Google has detected a pattern of links from your site to other sites that is either unnatural or irrelevant.”
It’s as if it’s 2010 again when many webmasters were receiving Google Webspam penalties and having their websites completed decimated.
6 years later…should this still be happening? I just asked this question rhetorically on Twitter:
@rustybrick Hmm…Google can build a self-driving car but they can't automatically de-value sites without crippling those who link to them!
