Once you’ve identified the bad links, you should start contacting the webmasters of the sites from which those links come and ask for them to be taken down. If, after two to three attempts, the links are still there, use Google’s Disavow Tool to get rid of those links. The latest Penguin update may have sent the message that it’s dangerous for webmasters and site owners not to know much about the post-Penguin 2.0 scenario, but it certainly isn’t cause enough for you to panic. As long as you get the basics down, you should have nothing to worry about.
