Just got a letter from google today for about 10 of my sites getting sandboxed and aguess the problem wasn't in links but in the sites content and structure or something please read below and share your thoughts, what should I do? I had custom joomla sites developed for me, should I just install fresh wordpress and put some content on it without affiliate links? I think thats my best shot: "Dear site owner or webmaster of http://www.myste.com, We received a request from a site owner to reconsider http://www.mysite.com/ for compliance with Google's Webmaster Guidelines.
