    So recently I received for 2 of my domains the "Unnatural Links" message from Google.
    BUT for the first domain the message was:
    "Unnatural links to your site - Google has detected a pattern of unnatural artificial, deceptive, or manipulative links pointing to your site.Buying links or participating in link schemes in order to manipulate PageRank is a violation of Google's Webmaster Guidelines.
    As a result, Google has applied a manual spam action to your site."

    and for the second domain the message was:
    "Unnatural links to your site?impacts links
    Google has detected a pattern of unnatural, artificial, deceptive, or manipulative links pointing to your site. Buying links or participating in link schemes in order to manipulate PageRank is a violation of Google's Webmaster Guidelines.


    Google doesn't want to put any trust in links that are artificial or unnatural. However, because we realize that some links may be outside of your control, we are not taking action on your site's overall ranking. Instead, we have applied a targeted action to the unnatural links pointing to your site."

    So this means that I should wait dropping in first domain's rankings but NOT for the second one??

    My site started with unnatural links to your site - impact links.
    a week later i got site wide action.
    so you are probably still going strong in SERPS but it will drop all of a sudden and you will see the message change.
    at least that's what happened to me.

    Interesting. I've been out of touch of the Google updates game for awhile now since I haven't been hit (ain't that the way it goes) glad to hear that Google have been deciding to just hit the links, not the site.

    For the first one, you've actually had a manual penalty - owch. Oh well.

    For the second one - no your domain will probably drop, unless your competition is shit. Your links were keeping you at the top - now Google is essentially devaluing them. The consequence? You'll drop in the rankings. So you'll probably tank too, but you could recover that one (theoretically) by quickly replacing the old links with new links that won't be devalued.

    the simple fact is you are gonna see a loss in rankings on both domains.

    first one because they are telling you that you got caught for buying links basically and that you wont recover until you remove the violating links and contact them for a reconsideration request.

    the second one you will see a drop in rankings because they just killed the sites passing link juice to your website and thus its "credibility" suffers and your rankings will drop. good news is this one is a bit better to have than the first one but you need to build links to fix the loss in good links.

    for the first one you need to delete bad backlinks, there are services for that or you can do it yourself.

    Both sites are going to tank and best to start building new replacements now and delete old ones when they drop....unless they are super high value brand sites you cannot afford to lose easier to scrap the sites and start again.
