illegal linking from Google index?
A couple of days ago, I was doing my routine research on who and in which context links to my website. What i found was quite a shock: my homepage (full title, website description and full url in Google index format) and many other pages link to an obscure website about "how to have sex" with dozens of links to hard core porn sites. I did "whois" on the domain and it turned out that the domain name uses illegal characters (?), but it is nevertheless listed in Google index (??)
I have never seen anything like this before and I am wondering if it's legal and how it may hurt my website in the future, since Google puts so much emphasis on who and in which context links to your website. Did anybody ever have any success in writing to Google and asking them to remove such links from their index?
Thanks a lot.

Re: illegal linking from Google index?
Yes, I agree. Until you start linking to the bad sites google does not hurt your rating or your SERP. It doesn't matter who links to you, what matters the most is who do you link to.
You can also look into googles blog on latest updates and trends, which will keep you updated about these questions.
