In what could almost be called a comedy of errors, White-Hat SEO ‘legend’ Dan Thies recently received a Google notice of Unnatural Linking:

https://groups.google.com/a/googleproductforums.com/forum/#!category-topic/webmasters/chit-chat/Azfly-iRtLs

In the thread he makes some very valid points about how he could have been penalised. And it now seems that he’s been the victim of the growing highly unethical trend of ‘Negative SEO’.

Now, whether or not you feel that the backlash against him for openly speaking out over the blog network issues surrounding ‘Panda’ is justified or not, this perfectly highlights how someone who pretty much does everything by Google’s book can still be royally spanked by our friends at Google.

When, oh when, will Google realise the enormous can of worms they’ve opened with their fumbled attempts at dealing with web-spam!

Please: Google… Deal with this!

…Before all SEO services become ‘Negative SEO’ services – in the light of this ridiculous situation that YOU’VE created.

    I think it would be good to get and idea as to what SEO techniques affatiiles are currently using and what is working well, i.e. press releases, submitting to directories, article marketing etc. I think since the Panda update, many people have had to adapt their linking strategy. The problem is this has caused many issues for the struggling affiliate to get their site noticed. I will be at the expo this year as I am an affiliate manager for one of the Uk’s leading car insurance brands so I would be keen to see what you have to say.
