In a couple of recent threads there have been references to GWT reporting large number of links from sites that are totally unrelated to the target. The links are usually to just one or two pages of the target site.
However, when the linking pages are checked out, there is no sign of the link that is being reported and a text search of the source code finds nothing.
I've always had an uneasy feeling that this might be an indicator of something that I should be acting on... but I have no idea of the what, when, why and how part.
Can anyone shed some light of what what might be going on and if any action is required?
