    Hey

    So i have a new site, the url is around 2 months and the content etc only around a week or two.

    I check my Webmasters account for links to my site and i have 1095 link.. wtf? How did this happen?

    Is the only method to remove through the google disavow?

    Any help be great

    Thanks

    Update *
    The domains that are linking to my site are all part of the epik.com shopping network

    I have contacted the epik.com chat support and they have requested the list of domains.

    Hopefully they can do something about it.

    EDIT: Noticed you were talking about internal, not incoming links. Wrote this about incoming links. Might be good information anyway.

    --

    There's nothing you can do to remove the links (Google's Disavow tool doesn't remove them, just tells Google to *perhaps* not take them into account). So why not concentrate your efforts elsewhere? Like publishing great content, if you do that you will get links from visitors and if you have a monetisation method in place, also good conversions and income. IMO, useful content is the key for long-term success, nothing fancier than that.

    You'll probably get replies with very different advice, like starting with a new domain, which might work too. But what if you will get thousands of unwanted links there as well? Uh huh, read the above paragraph about great content again :p

    Internal links can be changed through navigation of your site but it doesnt matter as you need to control external links.

    Sorry i made an error

    I meant links to my site. Not internal links.

    I have submitted the links to google for disavow,
    And keep adding content

    You cant remove links through disavow, you can just claim not to have been created by yourself.

    Almost done mate. You are the right way. I know that job is fu*king boring submit one by one link to remove that.
    Anyway, once you submit all the links, the webmaster tool will still appear those link for a couple months. So don't get shock when it still shown on webmaster tool.

    Are they bad links? Could it be possible that you purchased an aged domain and the previous owner had 1000 links going towards their domain which you now own?

    hmm im not sure, iv never thought of that.
    . And After checking that out it seems that you are correct, the domain i bought is still linked to the previous owners portfolio of sites.. i think?

    Here are a few samples of the sites which i am linked to. I searched my domain in the box and it comes up as a previous site.


    http://www.bridal-hairstyles.com
    http://www.bakingpans.net

    http://www.whitedishwashers.com


    Anything to worry about?

    Thanks for pointing that out to me :)

    Seriously if not spammy then why are you thinking to remove it?

    Disavowing links is risky business. Once you do the first, you're forever responsible for any links to your site.

    You have done the correct thing. However dropped or expired domains do come with their pros and cons, and you should have checked the domain before buying it. Anyways now that it's done do keep a tab on the webmaster tool to check for any manual spam action or penalty. Other than contacting the website owners the disavow tools is your only way out of this.(by the look at the links you posted they seem to share the same theme and the same c-class ip (107.20.144.75) so you should get rid of them)
