Noticed something interesting. Went through almost all the backlinks that I had for my site and I noticed that a lot of inner pages with my link have been de-indexed and its cache removed. This includes some of the "green light" directories that google accepts.
It might be that older sites which have organic links placed in inner pages have been hit because google isn't counting the links in the inner pages anymore since its been de-indexed. I'll bet that scrappers and black-hat sites have links more prominently displayed in homepages which from my list of links weren't hit.
Can I kindly ask for those affected to have a look at their inner-page links to confirm what I'm seeing.
