Today has been absolutely devastating for me, but maybe this will help others, and maybe you all can help me out. I have about 10 affiliate sites that all have 100% unique, high quality, hand written content. Today I woke up, and they HAVE ALL been deindexed and given this penalty Two of these sites have no affiliate links at all. ZERO. Just a dozen or so helpful guides. The only commonality that they all have is that they are connected with webmaster tools.
