There's some commentary out there about where Google might have been preparing to tighten up Penguin :
- Percentage of spammy links to be reduced dramatically
- EMD link ratios to be reduced
- other ?
I'm not sure where this puts the unnatural links notices, and the use of the disavow tool into webmasters tidy up strategies. Clearly there were concerns about moving too soon, rather than waiting, due to the "damned if you do" versus "damned if you don't" scenario.
Surely if Google has identified those links, the update is going to take those into account.
