    About a week ago I order a press release to promote my site's product. But unfortunately today I get an message on google webmaster manual actions "Google has detected a pattern of unnatural artificial, deceptive, or manipulative links pointing to pages on this site. These may be the result of buying links that pass PageRank or participating in link schemes."
    I have few questions to ask all of you guys and really want to get help from all of you, please help me.
    1. Can I use the disavow tool to handle the links? does it work?
    2. I've contacted google, can it offer me some opinion?
    3. I've contacted that pr website to remove the links, does it work?
    4. What action I should take right now?This is the money site.
    Hope you guys can help me a lot!

    Yes you can use the disavow tool and request a manual review from Google after. Just make sure you disavow all the links from the excel sheet that your service gave you. If you still have a lot of bad links, Google may still keep the penalty on your site and you have to wait a few months before submitting another review.

    Hi, thanks for your opinion, I found that only after this press release I purchased a week ago and then this problem shown up, does it means I only need to disavow all the links from the press release?

    Simply ask for the press release links you purchased to be remove, that is unless of course they charge you for removal services (now that's something fishy). Clean up your backlinks first, disavow those links (even if they were removed) and then submit your site for review.

    Hopefully, you've learned your lesson on backlinking (do it yourself so links can be easily removed if caught).

    If you can get those specific links removed, you could file reconsideration armed with that.

    Use disavow tool. Ask press release website to remove your links. Submit a reconsideration request and tell Google what you did to receive unnatural links warning, what you have already done to fix it and ask to check your website.

    Do you have any other links except from the PR site? I really doubt you'd get penalised for just one link from a press release.

    BTW, you will not succeed with reconsideration request if you just disavow links, as you need to show google that you try to remove those links.

    Did you used any of your keywords as anchor texts in these PR submission? You try to contact those site owners to remove the links, try to remove max. links by manual approaching, then prepare a disavow file for those links that are not removed manually.

    What kind of links do you have otherwise? This will be the big question for the reconsideration. Why did you contact google immediately? Does not make any sense. You draw more attention to yourself then you probably want. Clean your house and then ask afterwards. Or maybe even better move on and get a new domain right away.

    I would have thought getting the links removed before filing a reconsideration would have been foolish - it proves that you're in control of the links!

    You got a warning for just a Press Release? That seems fishy...
