This morning I logged into Webmaster Tools (which I have not done for some time) and noticed under "What Google Sees" => "In external links to your site" that instead of all the great anchors for inbound links we previously held, the list is dominated by what apppears to be spammy or unrelated anchors.
michigan primary results
etc etc etc....
Should I be concerned?
Google is very discreet about that, they won't openly say that there is a major problem. There are so many pages over the internet that they still find a way to bring relevant results even if some sites get sabotaged.
I am in the same situation, I dont know if it's sabotage or no luck but it definetely screwed a site pretty badly.
Links appeared overnight from irrelevant sites, mostly on similar IP's. Good luck.
