    Yeah and at the same time this is good for those sites who get hit by the Penguin update since you just need to save spam links in a .txt file then upload it on the new tool.

    No thanks, DO NOT use this. They want YOU to manually go through it all and blacklist sites for THEM.

    Every type of cheap automated link in the universe winds up in a blacklist book.

    No it's not, Highly highly doubt this will bring back any update damaged sites.

    Stop for a second and think.

    Those who removed bad links after the updates, and being asked by Google.

    Did any sites rise back up to the same spots?

    No.

    They are fooling you if you think this will repair damaged sites.

    Why not just use this database of "bad links" submitted by people to make their anti spam algorithm smarter much like you'd train spam assassin with actual spam emails.

    Why do you think gmail is so good at detecting spam? You have all these people clicking the "spam" button on actual spam emails training the filters.

    In my case, I will still use this tool only to links from low quality and high OBL blog comments.

    I submitted this URL as being spam and should be deindexed:

    Code:
    https://www.google.com/
