I am getting a lot of link modification requests lately.
"we have been penalised for unatural links, can you please change the anchor text of your links from "blaH to "bla blah".
I am ignoring them, becuase the anchor text for links from the site in question, is set by a vbulletin plugin, which changes the anchor to whatever the page title is for the target page.
But I am curious.
Surely if Google has marked a page as being an unanatural links page, there is no point in webmasters asking other webmasters to modify anchor text for such a link? Its already been determined to be unatural, why bother with it?
Anyone got a position on this, or got any intel that indicates modifying anchor text and accompanying descriptions of old links makes an iota of difference re Penguin?
