Anyone have experience on how long an over optimized penalty lasts once some links are removed ?
I believe I have been stuck in this situation for 18 months. Most of the links are long gone but for some reason they still show in Webmaster tools. So I would presume Google is still counting them even though some have been gone for over a year.
Is it normal for Webmaster tools to be so out of date and any suggestions ?
