UPDATE: Matt Cutts posted more in depth details about the unnatural link warnings to the G[URL="http://www.seroundtable.com/google-new-link-notifications-15499.html"]oogle Webmaster Blog[/URL].

Last week Google sent out thousands of "unnatural link" warnings through web master tools. The link warning [URL="http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2193959/Googles-Confusing-Unnatural-Link-Warnings-Freak-Out-SEOs-Webmasters"]confused and scared webmasters[/URL] because so many of them were aware of the issue of the inbound links causing search rank issues and had not partaken in any type of link building against Google's terms of service. Google's Matt Cutts soon responded via Google + with an equally confusing message "not to worry" about the link warning. A second email message was eventually sent out, but not until webmasters and business owners were in a complete panic over losing Google rankings.

Critics of the panicking site owners say that they shouldn't rely so heavily on Google for traffic; which begs the question: who else or where else can web sites get all that free traffic from and how can they budget to replace it, when replacing it means paying for traffic?
