Today our WMT reports that we have suddenly obtained 81,317 links from website that we have neither heard of nor contacted.
We do not have any links to them.
Our website is music related, the site linking to us appears to be some sort of unfinished social networking site on a .co.uk domain.
There are no contact details except a gmail email address. (not compliant with current legislation, we will be reporting them)
We have emailed as follows:
To whom it may concern
Our Google Webmaster Tools has suddenly shown over 81,000 links from your website at w w w.xxx
We have never dealt with you nor requested any links to our website.
You are ordered to REMOVE ALL AND ANY links from your website to our website immediately.
Failure to complete the above within 72 hours will result in legal action being taken.
You written confirmation that the above has been completed is required.
The question is could this effect our Serps and how do we get this removed from WMT?
All input appreciated :)
