Re: so what HAS happened last week
My guess is that Google is learning that all the link farm pages are now
rel="nofollow" and is progressively de-penalising the site for being part of
a link scheme. It would further help if you stopped those pages being
indexed with robots.txt, meta robots no index, and also requested Google to
delete the pages from its index. The site remains at risk now if some
competitor links to one of the link farm pages to keep it in, or put it back
in the index.
Best regards, Eric.
