    Recently i bought a bookmarking service which consisted of 1k links, and to my surprise the bookmarks created tons of duplicate links: same page but under different urls on each bookmaring website, the result was 30k links in two days shown in ahrefs!
    The two websites for which i have purchased these links lost rankings, one dropped few spots on page 1 and the other to page 5 from page 2.
    Now i am thinking of disavowing the links but i don't like google to manually review the sites for obvious reasons!
    What's your experience? Does the tool results in a manual review?

    I don't know does Disavowing links mean manual review ..
    All I know manual review comes after and before manual Action only which consider it as hard slap ...
    anyway for you it's looks like automatic penalty and you have do delete all bad links first and wait google crawling it again .

    No, it won't result in a manual review. Millions of links probably get disavowed every day.

    Please don't tell me that you ordered these kind of service directly to money sites?

    I don't think they check sites just for disavowing links, but whatever happened before you disavowing them might have already triggered a manual review.

    I rank my sites since 2011, 1k bookmarks to diversify anchors and targeting several pages of your site was never a problem for me. I use even quality scrapebox blasts!
    But what happened this time is a never seen thing for me!

    What i will do is disavowing links of the website for which i care LESS and see, for the other, i will keep building links like before. I will keep everyone updated but if someone have a note please drop it here!

    I've experienced the same situation, Ordered a 1k social bookmarking blast, saw increase in ranking and boom 2 days later I got a manual review and a Pure spam penalty. Luckily, this was a churn and burn project and was more of test than a real project.

    So really becareful when blasting a ton of social bookmarks directly to moneysite. I'm pretty sure we've ordered the same social bookmarking service from "fiverr" .

    No it doesn't trigger a review, but keep in mind that the disavow won't do much for you at this point.

    Figure out how to get the links removed.

    IMO disavowing links may not result in a manual review, but a change in ranking, as everything is done automatically without any human intervention

    I used linkdetox and disavowed all of my toxic links and saw a pretty big drop in rankings.

    the links I disavowed were made from link emperor directly to my money site so I figured I had better get rid of them.

    After you disavow, you will have to submit a reconsideration request which results in a manual review.
