Are there any proof or case that disavow is really working ? Google honors it ?

    It seemed to work when I did it, took about 6 weeks though.

    hi there.
    yes they do. Actually this is the only way you can remove bad backlinks so there is no other way we can rely on.

    have a look at my profile

    The only time I have had success with disavow mates is after I removed links

    Those links that I could not get removed then I disavowed and that worked for them.

    Doesn't work otherwise

    Please stop disavowing links. You're shooting yourself in the foot in the long run allowing google to build up a database of known spam targets. Jesus christ.

    I also wonder if Google is indeed collecting valuable data for spammy websites with disavow.

    It does work, but if you have to make a recon request, it isn't the only step you need to take.
    If you don't show you have made considerable efort to get the links removed yourself before making the recon request, they tend to decline it.


    Also - never know a first recon request get accepted (unless there was a technical reason why your site should not have been penalized in the first place)

    Wow man, you probably have some proof that I mislead anyone....I hope you do or I'll report you for abuse.

    By the way, I got a second site recovered and I received various messages about that thread working for them. If I were you I'd be more careful what you say behind other users' back.....

    It does work, but you have to wait for some weeks to get result...

    i am working on a massive disavow list right now

    i am blocking only at domain level, no crappy individual links

    even i am blocking authority sites like domain:wordpress.com or domain:blogspot.com because those links are not editorial - nobody checks

    so far disavowed 7000+ domains+ sub domains :D

    i don't have any manual penalty so i won't waste time with trying to remove backlinks

    i hope to see some improvements

    First of all you are free to report. I am all OK with that.

    In your thread, I clearly stated that you were manipulating people. So I am not talking behind other users' back. Should I copy and paste what I have written there? I am sure you will be humiliated if people read carefully that thread.

    So do not make any drama. I suggest you to increase your post counts by submitting useless threads and replies as ever before. Ohhh, btw, please do not forget to mention about the never ending adventures of your mysterious clients. I like them a lot lol.:)

    PS: OP, sorry for hijacking your thread...

    With negative SEO on the increase - and working. Using more sophisticated (but still dirt cheap) methods, then the disavow links option is oign to get used more and more as time goes on.

    It maybe why Google facilitated "spam for cash" in the first place. To get it's users to send them reams of actionable data.

    Fucked if you do...fucked if you dont.

    But at least if you do you eventually start earning money from your sites again, so that's the option many are going to take

    LOL @ reporting, don't be a pussy man.. that dude just said his opinion.

    Also.. I have to agree with ChokeStone.. google is building a list of most common spam links. Isn't it obvious ?

    I think there will be too much raw data for them to use "as is". Keep in mind, there are plenty spam posts on most authority platforms as well that are getting disavow requests. So I doubt they can just put it to use without any sorting. But it is easy to spot a spam site even with just a few metrics.

    As for me, I have heard only one case when it worked and tons when nothing good happened.

    Keep in mind, *IF* it works 1) it will take a lot of time 2) you will effectively loose your links AND ranks. So simple disavow won't get your ranks back, that's 100% IMHO.

    Yes it does work. Just to try I bought an old expired domain with bad links to it and which got deindexed by google. So to check I submitted all bad links with disavow tool and guess what, within a week I got that site re-indexed. So I think it does work.
