Unnatural Links Warning From Google
Posted 11 February 2012 - 02:54 PM
Is there anything specific that I can do to identify links that Google considers to be "bad" or "unnatural"?
I've researched this for hours in Google's help files and by searching Google and haven't been able to locate any info on how to indentify the links that need to be deleted.

Try looking at their client portfolio if they publish one. Then choose a couple of likely candidates and do a laborious search.
Remember, they may have if not hidden these clinks, but somehow obscured them.
I fixed one of these situations once and the complexity of the tangled web was quite extraordinary.
That one didn't feature a Google warning, but took almost 6 months to recover decent SERPs.
