I am not sure if this has already been posted but this is good news for anyone who was hit from the G. The negative SEO campaigns and link removals all can be fixed by the webmaster shortly. If MC does what he said at the annual ?You & A with Matt Cutts? keynote at SMX Advanced in Seattle. MC: The story of this year has been more transparency, but we?re also trying to be better about enforcing our quality guidelines. People have asked questions about negative SEO for a long time. Our guidelines used to say it?s nearly impossible to do that, but there have been cases where that?s happened, so we changed the wording on that part of our guidelines. Some have suggested that Google could disavow links. Even though we put in a lot of protection against negative SEO, there?s been so much talk about that that we?re talking about being able to enable that, maybe in a month or two or three.
