He does not have a massive amount of natural links because like I said, his site deals with a very specialty item. This item is only for a specific type of business. This is not something that would be put in newspapers or blogs because the every day person would have no use for something like this. It would be like the internet creating a buzz for a commercial mulching machine that would only be used by commercial mulching businesses.
His sites are hosted on youtube because that is all he knows. I have no issue with that, he doesnt even mind that the videos are being embedded because they have his company name and website all over them so the embedding is actually a good thing.
This product is being mentioned on other sites with exact matches, but they are search pages. For example the 3rd result right now is a search result page from a china wholesale directory page 22 that has 0 original content and is just a listing page with the "generic" versions of the product.
The company created a ton of links using profiles and using a blog network...that seems to be the main issue. This was a blog network that was targeted by google penguin specifically. We have been recovering but google is not yet completely satisfied with the amount of links we are bringing to their attention.
