    So yes. I mean what I said in the title.

    Why?

    Here's why.

    I've using using HPS for my case study, and the site's almost 60% links are from HPS. And as we know, HPS is now being hit by the slap, a lot of domains are being de-indexed. When I first checked my lot of HPS links, I found majority were gone from google. I was worried, that my site must have been slapped as well. I log on to my GWT account, and find that there's no notification.

    HOWEVER...

    One of my other sites, which is completely whitehat, all natural links, received the unnatural links warning! WTF!

    Having said that, the site in discussion is still in indexes, and there has been no negative effect on its rankings.

    I am now confused as to how Google evaluates sites, their links and positions. time to get a pen and paper and start from scratch!

    They have a team of keyboard jockeys who are paid to slap sites at random - I suspect that now you are in their radar cross hairs - you will be hearing from them again soon.

    It is likely that the keyboard jockeys are on auto pilot with a list in front of them of 'Premier Accounts' who they must not touch - but any other site is fair game to be penalized

    Home Page:
    Someone else came out and said they were just sending those notices despite there findings - its funny that you know for fact its white hat and are getting the notice. Did you submit for review?

    The site using hps - is it first page with heavy competition? I think once it hits first page is when you start to get the major slaps.

    Yes, I have submitted it for review as soon as I saw the notice.

    It's at page 5 right now, not moved down since HPS was banned. But just to be clear, I've been building some strong, web 2.0's to the same site which might have compensated for the slap.

    Yea, I know google must be high. I have a sales page (Thin Affiliate Site) ranking on page 2. This domain has not been listed in the search results until this recent Panda update (Its been gone for more than a year). I thought google wanted to ward off these thin affiliate sites like mine..

    Ohh the irony dear Google, ohh the irony.. :)
