    Finally started to see my main website come back from the dead.
    So far I have used link delete.com to try and remove almost 2000 links, I have submitted 1 reconsideration request to google, and the day before yesterday I uploaded the same 1200 urls to the disavow tool.

    Today, I have seen 30% increase in traffic and looking at the stats it's the best day by far in the last 30 days.

    Coincidence?

    I'm not saying the tool is good and I'm not saying my approach is a great idea, but in this scenario (my main money site, long term project, branded domain) it was one of few options, and finally I'm seeing some results.

    That's good news! Keep us informed please. I'm really curious about the tool.

    I submitted 5k links to the disavow tool yesterday for one of my sites. I'm hoping to bring it back before the holiday season.

    Cheers!

    Well it may be a coincidence. Diswow takes weeks to show effect.

    Yea I know, just hopeful, I think in reality, the reinclusion request I submitted two weeks ago is probably kicking in:)

    I am not surprised and happy for you. :) But, as mentioned in other topics G likes to do a little list building too.
    The next animal released will cause serious havoc on this forum I'm afraid. Hope to be wrong on this one.

    I guess if you believe everything cutts says, but you really can't know that for sure, as this tool was released yesterday.
