    Wtf google? I am trying to do the right thing here. Someone made some seriously spammy links to a URL of mine so I disavowed them. Not too many maybe 100 or so. Well over the last couple days I have seen a drop in rank for my keywords for that URL. So wtf should I do now just un-disavow them I guess?

    I had a similar situation, many drop especially the keywords page 2 but after a week - 10 days an huge boost to all the keywords, at the end it was a good move to disavow

    Finish cleaning up your link profile and wait a month or so. Definitely do not un-disavow.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I will be more patient. It's hasn't even been a week yet so you're probably right.

    Just remember Disavow alone is not the solution. Google has gotten a lot smarter over the years and the majority of negative seo attacks are just filtered out and not taken into consideration. Only if your link pofile is strong. If it contains shitty links as it is, well then its not going anywhere. It's kind of worrying that removing these "shitty" links had dropped your rankings, basically means shitty links are what were keeping your rankings up. That's not something to be pleased with.

    Give it a week or two to see if it changes.

    It was near to the end of penguin 4, many keywords dropped like 10-20 I don't have look the LP, these days I do a disavow file each week and I don't see any huge change, also these keywords was from articles without any links to them, my site have around 450 articles
