With Google's latest alorithm update, sites are now penalised for either offering paid backlinks or guest posts. This plugin simply fixes this by adhering to Google's recommended action:
Identify paid or otherwise inorganic links by using rel="nofollow" or redirecting to an intermediate page that is blocked by robots.txt.
Remove any problematic links from your site.
When you're satisfied that your site follows Google's Webmaster Guidelines, submit a reconsideration request.
For an updated list of manual actions currently applied to your site, visit the Manual Actions page. If no manual actions are listed, there is no longer a need to file a reconsideration request.
