    I submitted 245 links to the disavow tool on the 8th of December 2013. Google is saying that its got this submission, but when I look at the message in my webmaster tools it says:

    Details: You successfully uploaded a disavow links file () containing 0 domains and 0 URLs.

    I submitted a notepad file with the 245 links nothing else. No space above or below the list of links, no other text etc. I named the files "mysitename-disavow-list.txt"

    Is this normal? was I meant to submit a spread sheet file or something? looked on youtube and everyone was showing how to do it exactly the same as me. A notepad file with direct links to the spammy urls.

    Plus I have not heard back from them. But I presume it takes some time?

    Did work for me in the past ! I have read in forums. It is good until you are already penalized !
    Sometime it takes a month ! sometimes it takes longer than that ! i still have around 220 Backlinks coming from a single domain. which was not removed !

    I recommend you to disvow the domain ! and wait :)

    Sounds like you had an issue with the upload.

    I will say though that the disavow doesn't work and I wouldn't count on anything happening anytime soon.

    If you want results remove the links.

    Yea sounds like you uploaded it wrong.

    Regardless if you figure out how to upload it correctly, don't get your hopes up chief.
