    So I got indirectly hit by negative SEO basically. a Site I had a sitewide link on had like 1,000 buy viagra pages made. Also had some low quality sitewide directories with like 4k links to my site with the same anchor text. I got these links removed, which should drop my back links by 5-6k links. Ahrefs shows these links dropping off yet Google Web Master tools has yet to update anything weeks later. How long should it take for Google to figure out my removed back links? I've also pinged the hell out of the removed backlinks.

    First of all, GWT shows three days old stats, and it takes sometime to index the links so i belive it could take somewhere between three days and a couple of months.

    Have you tried posting your removed backlinks on G+?

    But i do belive google have noticed that they are gone already, even though they are visible on GWT

    Nauthiz666,

    I can take a while for the report to be updated but those links could continue to appear in the report even if they have been removed and vis versa. Google doesn't provide very comprehensive (or accurate) free reports. You are better off using custom software for guidance.

    This page talks about their policy,

    Hope that helps,
