Right before Pubcon 2011 (November) I cancelled the last paid links to my site. The marketplace where I bought should have removed the last one by end of November.
Suddenly I start to get this stupid notification in WMT... It is coming around 3 months too late!
We rely heavily on our merchants. It is a big marketplace and everybody who sells there can link and use widgets, which link to their products. These widgets have a NOSCRIPT part with a standard link to the product.
In the last 6 months we have gained around 1,000 new merchants on the platform. Not all, but quite a lot do link to their products - like they would on eBay or Amazon.
Will they eventually understand that? Grrr... after "Reinclusion request", they still mail me: "nope, still unnatural links..."
To really investigate, I would need some examples. Maybe a merchant (or 20) are doing something fishy - but how should I know?
GWT is totally not helping me...
