The Link Building Toolbar is a brand new tool that I decided to do my first video review of. Because my skills are poor at best (give it time!), I also did a review in Text below. Please don’t hammer me too much for all the um’s (you also might have to turn your volume all the way up – Sorry!).

Some of what you see & hear being penalized by Google is a publicity stunt.
For example, when the blog networks that got deindexed roughly a month ago, only the biggest & most well known ones took a hit.
