As everybody has been noticing Google has been doing a lot of stuff now. They started on Google Plus and then here’s comes a new Google Algorithm that focuses on removing all low quality websites. In relation to that, Google is currently doing things to make the new algorithm possible. I’ve read in a article that Google has significant increased the number of messages they have sent using Webmaster Tools.
One example is that Google sends out warnings about “Artifical” or “Unnatural” Links. Many webmasters have reported about receiving a message from Google regarding link violations. I came across the Google Webmaster help forums and I see something like this:
“Dear site owner or webmaster of ….
We’ve detected that some of your site’s pages may be using techniques that are outside Google’s Webmaster Guidelines.
Specifically, look for possibly artificial or unnatural links pointing to your site that could be intended to manipulate PageRank. Examples of unnatural linking could include buying links to pass PageRank or participating in link schemes.
We encourage you to make changes to your site so that it meets our quality guidelines. Once you’ve made these changes, please submit your site for reconsideration in Google’s search results.
If you find unnatural links to your site that you are unable to control or remove, please provide the details in your reconsideration request.
If you have any questions about how to resolve this issue, please see our Webmaster Help Forum for support.

In the end Google is really focusing on its objective of providing more quality and relevant sites to searchers. Just like I always say, HQ content + Social Media is the key! But we have to also remember, like any other SEO Blogging blog says – We have to have a USP – UNIQUE SELLING POINT! Which makes us stand out from others!
