    I checked my stats today and saw that my site has 16k backlinks. From around 300 backlinks to 16k over the course of 4 days... Fucking shit!

    I haven't gotten any warnings yet but I'm pretty sure that I will either get banned or penalized by Google. Checked webmasters but no warnings as of yet.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Have you checked to make sure that the links are not just 1 sitewide link from a single site?

    How can I gather all links without access to any tools? Can I do this with webmasters?

    Webmaster tools won't show those links for a month at least. Check your site on Ahrefs, it should show the links closer to real time.

    I did that, but I'm using the free version and can only see 5 backlinks in total.

    Actually while looking closer on the limited Ahrefs report I think I've figured out what it could be. I commented on a certain site, and after a brief look through it appears that my comments have been shown over thousands of their articles. I think that's because they have a "Also on XXX" section where they feature random comments.

    Question is, is this something I have to worry about?
