I had a problem with a good chunk of my inner pages being de-indexed on Google yesterday. I fixed my most major problem, which had to do with a canonical URL issue that de-indexed my home page as well. I got that fixed and back on SERPS, however my other inner pages did not return.
Thinking it might have been some separate issue, I did some investigating and found that several backlinks to one of my de-indexed pages were to spammy blogger sites that posted old articles I have on EzineArticles to these blogs with a huge list of sex links at the bottom of each blog post. I was shocked when I saw this. I have no idea how to remove my article from these blogs because they are listed on Webmaster Tools under the "Pages with External Links" section. And I'm afraid this problem might have caught up with the page since these links were last found by Google a month ago.
Are there any steps I can take to resolve this issue since it looks impossible to get them removed by the blog owner since I don't believe there is one.
