unless of course you joined some scheme that got you 10,000 links at the same instant and Google found them all at the same instant (not going to happen), that might raise a few warning flags.

As long as you get links through genuine means, from genuine sites there is no issue. Go as fast as you can. A single good press release can get you a tonnes of links (they may not serve your purpose but thats another story)

Read it 2-3 times, taking a deep breath between each read. Give it some thought.
And don't panic.

I've read the post on the personal blog of Google employee Matt Cutts and don't understand why any of what he said in regards to linking should come as a surprise to people - unless you're totally new to SEO. I'm specifically referring to what he posted here:
- On March 13th, GoogleGuy gave a way for WMW folks to give example sites.
- After looking at the example sites, I could tell the issue in a few minutes. The sites that fit “no pages in Bigdaddy” criteria were sites where our algorithms had very low trust in the inlinks or the outlinks of that site. Examples that might cause that include excessive reciprocal links, linking to spammy neighborhoods on the web, or link buying/selling. The Bigdaddy update is independent of our supplemental results, so when Bigdaddy didn’t select pages from a site, that would expose more supplemental results for a site.
The bold is mine and I added the other verbiage so you could see the set up for his comments. The fact excessive reciprocal links, linking to spammy neighborhoods or link buying/selling would affect a site negatively is no surprise regardless of what datacenter it’s in, supposed to be in, trying to get in -- whatever. Play with crap links and eventually you’ll get flushed.
I just don't get where this is anything new, he's towed this line before.
Marchy - Match your link growth with content and traffic growth. Keeping everything even helps avoid issues with the engines. -- And welcome!

How are you currently building links??
Directories??, link exchange?? or are you using some automated link farm out there like linkvault which can certainly hurt you with SE's??

It was really how fast I can do it!

New? Not in the sense of "Gee, no one has ever heard this before" -- except that this is the first time that Matt or anyone has put it all together in one big picture. And the fact that these comments pertain to Big Daddy and what Google is doing now versus what it was doing prior to Big Daddy means that most SEOs are still in the dark.
This post is big news. It's the only authoritative explanation of what many people have perceived as changes in Google behavior.
The significance of the post cannot be overemphasized. Way too many people in the SEO community pay heed to the panicky, conspiracy-theory-driven voices.
