A couple of months ago i was given a spread sheet with literally hundreds of 'bad' links pointing to a certain website... and I was asked to go through the list, contact each website and ask them to remove the link to our client. At the time i knew it was a futile task, a time consuming task and time which could be better spent.
Is anybody else doing bad link removal?
Are any of the bad links being removed?
I know google is recommending we try to remove our bad links... but seriously, does google really think we can get links removed from high-spam un-manned directories and the like?
