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.
