    I would still love to hear what Google thinks about branded anchor text. Surely a majority of anchor is going to be your domain or brand name. Does that hurt? What about using branded links across footers, across multiple sites you own?

    He repeatedly says in the video that the tool is only for people who received a manual unnatural links warning...I wonder if it will eventually be able to help people who are affected by Penguin?

    The main reason that he discourages the use of the tool is because its just like the algo and recent updates. BETA and full of bugs in the system. Be-Aware!

    Danny is wondering why Google need the tool? The tool is needed because Google is in profit making mode! having to crawl millions even billions of spammy made to rank links costs money! For example the blog networks that were slammed last year.. Googlebot no longer needs to visit any of those sites. the less work Googlebot does the cheaper it is for Google. This is just another cost cutting measure enough people disavow a particular domain Googlebot no longer needs to visit that domain. Google is the king of crowd sourcing out work to webmasters, this is just another example.

    THANK YOU Danny, I breathlessly waited every line of comment once I found out that Matt Cutts was having lunch. Who is Matt Cutts? Oh, some PR dude looking to make Google some more money. Why didn't YOU ask Matt: How come your earnings and add clicks went through the roof after all these "spam fighting" updates?
