    Hello! I have a website regarding medicines and due to a lot of back-links Google is now giving me warning as they will spam my website. Can anyone tell me how to remove bad back links from other websites? Which method is quick, batter and convenient?

    The google disavow tool is the only way i think. I have no idea how effective it is as I've never used it. Negative SEO is very effective right now.

    You can use Link Detox to make an automatic analysis of your backlinks. But remember that it's only a tool and you shouldn't have 100% trust to it. Just follow the rules on the basis of which links were classified as toxic and suspicious and you'll know which links to remove. In the disavow file it should be enough to put only those links you weren't able to remove and you think they are the problematic ones.

    it is a difficult thing to fight. Disavow is not a guarantee against the bad links and removal can be very difficult. Most SEOs indicate best to clean up your link profile by adding quality links. I had a site with issues, no manual warning, but was able to clean up the profile and its now recovering.

    The thing is currently you have to remove bad links manually by contacting the domain owners. Then if they don't respond add those links to disavow and submit the reconsideration to google and say that those domain owners are not responding. Please be detailed. So they will do something.

    You should get started with checking all your backlinks and find out which of them harm your website. The next step is to disavow these links. Some people say that you have to contact webmasters and ask them to remove links but as Matt Cutts explained recently, it'll be enough to just disavow them.
    However, it may take some time till you'll see some results and this is a thing you'll have to do on a regular basis (about once in a month).

    Get an export of your backlinks. Go through the backlinks and look for links that are clearly spammy. Then go to the sites, find the contacts and reach out to them asking them to take the links down. If they do then great, if they don't then you'll have to put the links into the Google Disavow tool and submit a reconsideration request. This is the normal way that an authority site would have to go about getting their rankings back.

    If you can afford to restart, I would just suggest 301'ing the domain to a fresh domain and starting fresh. May be too much work to get things removed if it's not a high authority site.

    Make sure you know what backlinks are hurting your site first. Don't just disavow every link.. I personally would try to get the links removed manually first and then disavow as the last resort.

    No one can provide a reliable link removing service. How can you remove a blogger blog post if you don't have the login details? by reporting thousand times by different accounts? The best thing you can do is to avoid making low quality links again and make some guest posts on authority blogs to increase the overall authority of your own blog.

    Google is messing up big time by blaming the passive side for bad links.

    The WWW works this way: people link to whoever they want to link to, and the recipients of links have no control. Google has admitted defeat when they blamed the recipient for the links. How can anyone be blamed for receiving links? That is absurd, it's illogical.

    The only way to remove links is to disavow them, but when you disavow links you immediately place yourself as responsible for links other people place to you, which is where the logic breaks down. When you do that, you're telling Google you control the links to you, so the links you don't disavow will say more about you than the ones you do disavow.

    When you disavow a single link, you're telling Google you know all about the links to you. How could you disavow one and not another? You see, the link disavow tool is a complete mess, like "nofollow" links, it just means Google has lost control. The idea of a "nofollow" link is absurd in itself: "this is a link but don't follow it" is just ridiculous.

    Is right on the money. I've tried the easy disavow tool first to no avail. Wasn't until i showed some effort and did manual requests to get as many taken down by contacting pubs and then disavowed the rest, that I got back in.
