What is overly seo' ed?

Few days back Google has been announced that it will penalized overly seo’ ed websites(means who are doing extra linking for their websites) , but i have never heard how many linking we need to do for a website in a month 100, 200, 300 or how many? Then what actually mean behind overly seo’ed websites. Google announce such updates only because he want to seo remain alive…or what you think?

There is already a thread about that in the Internet Marketing forum, which is the correct place for SEO discussions. This forum focuses on Web Content.
