    I'm analyzing one of my domains, I see a large difference in domains shown from ahrefs vs google.

    I see a good number of spammy backlinks that show in aHrefs, but they don't show in GWT. Now GWT says they are pretty good at weeding out crappy domains and hence the 100 or so domains I thought were crappy, didn't exist in GWT.

    The leads me to believe google already disavowed those domains and I really don't have to, but I did anyway.

    Have anyone seen a boost in SERP from disallowing domains that weren't even listed in GWT as a linked domain?

    I have seen a boost in serps multiple times from different sites after deleting the disavow list, every time it takes exactly 10 days, and badabing badaboom serp boost, so in reality quiet the opposite of what is supposed to happen.

    So basically, you re-allowed the disavowed link and you get a serp boost?

    Disavowal tool allows publishers to Google that they don’t want certain links from external sites to be considered as part of Google’s system of counting links to rank web sites. Some sites want to do this because they’ve purchased links. Other sites may want to remove links gained from participating in bad link networks or for some reasons.

    exactly.

    I guess a logic behind it is, that in order to disavow links, you need to know which ones to disavow or which ones are bad links to say it in another way, now by logic you only know that if you've actively been buiding the rest of the links, or if they are from really high authority sites that are "houshold names" of your niche.
    I look at the disavow tool as googles "snitch/rat your self out tool", it's googles clever way of getting webmasters to admit they've been "bad", as an added bennifit google gets an insight to "link spam" domains and parasites for future refference when they see enough people disavow those links.

    thanks for sharing your experience. you still have noticed the same result as you have mentioned: increase in serp due to removing disavow tool?

    could it have been due to you removing few links in your disavow that actually had good authority? meaning their juice came back once the file was removed?

    I have done it on several occaotions on several sites, some my own, some clients, and same thing happens over and over again, a speculation is that the disavow tool was created for webmasters to tell google what sites they use for spam, aka spoonfeeding google the information they want, I always remove the whole disavow list, by creating a disavow list you are effectively telling google that you have control over these links in one way or another otherwise how would you know which ones to disavow, right.

    I use linkresearchtools.com's DTOX tool.

    They help you find which links to disavow - as well as which links you don't want to disavow. You can then use the "good links list" to ignore all those links in future reports so you only see new links.

    You can use Ahrefs to do the same thing as well. And helps you to create a disavow list to be submitted to Gwt.

    Google never says that they will display all your backlinks, so take it with a pinch of salt.
