Can you just remove the links if Google blacklists your site?

    Let's say you have a link pyramid going with 10-20 strong tier 1 links to your website and then you get sandboxed. Can you just remove all the links and contact Google or something?

    Yes you can.. if you have submitted those links manually or if you have login details of all those websites where you links are. Then surely you can edit them.. Google will automatically recheck your website within 15 days.

    Yes you can get rid of them. But I wouldn't contact Google for a reconsideration request.

    Just remove the links and wait for Google to remove them from their index. Then you basically have a fresh start.

    If you are hit with manual penalty, then you need to try removing your link then disavow links you unable to remove. Put link removed and disavowed list in a excel sheet and apply for reconsideration.
    If you are not hit by manual penalty. Then disavow links pointing your site and start building fresh quality links.
    If you din't received any kinda warning letters from google, but your site lost its rankings. Then do nothing start building quality links.

    Yea removing the links is the best option, And yea you have to wait for the change in google. Just ask someone to start deleting the links.

    The Google disavow tool can help you with this. Expect it to tack maybe 3 months to have any affect.
