    I got an email on webmaster tool yesterday from Google saying unnatural links detected..etc... so I panic and list all links I have done and downloaded the links from webmaster tool as well to check each of them. I also monitored my website and see if anything unusual happens link site dropping, de-indexing and other things that shows i'm getting slammed. Until today nothing serious happens...and then I stumbled upon this from search engine land:

    Insanity: Google Sends New Link Warnings, Then Says You Can Ignore Them
    http://searchengineland.com/insanit...warnings-then-says-you-can-ignore-them-128297

    If you received the same email and when you do site search and you still see good results, then you're fine :)..

    Sounds a sneaky way to scare good SEO's from further optimizing their websites lol :D

    Just another reason not to use GWT. Using GWT is the easiest way for google to flag you for doing SEO, it basically tells them "hey, i want to know everything about my site, so I can optimize it and try and beat your algo" = Google want natural results over SEO'd results.

    Agreed, I've never used GWT either and have been happy without it.

    I got one ... on a profile that had genuine bookmarking, forum comments ... was shocked... could not figure out why. the only links that might have seemed unnatural were from the a second blog with all links pointing to the website. (the blog is the websites blog, and it is branded in the exact same way)...
