    So, there it is. The MF is back alive after 2 weeks in the purgatory.

    What did I do? Yes guys. I did it. I ventured into the guts of the dirty stinking animal and let it have my soul.

    I disavowed every single link. All of them. The good, the bad, the ugly, back in September 13 or so. And the site's back today... Looks like I don't need any links to rank in that niche. Or maybe Pagerank is dead after all...I don't think there exists a single "editorial link" anywhere on the WWW...

    I still have 3 sites in the purgatory, gona do the same for them.


    My idea now is to undisavow the better domains one by one and see WTF happens. It's the disavow update guys....they want you to use it. Sell your souls and get your clients back. The beast wants you managing the links for them. Better have a couple of good links than 10.000 bad ones.

    Until the world is once again free of the beast's WWW prison, you will have to monitor your links and disavow them. It's what this update is about. If you fight it they'll never let you out of the mess they created.

    PS. Don't forget to disavow all your competitor's domains, you never know if they'll link to you and cost you a penalty. Use the domain:example.com syntax for that.

    I'd monitor the site, it's great news but considering you disavowed in september this may simply be the result of using the disavow tool losing the toxic links,they say it takes weeks to kick in so the timing is right and it may not be directly linked to penguin 2.1.

    For sure it is a step in the right direction for site recovery, regarding penguin 2.1 I'm not sure.

    Anyway great news for you and your client !

    Maybe you just got lucky. But disavowing every link just sounds plain dumb. In fact, Google even advises against doing that.

    I remembers someone else saying on here that they did the same thing and it worked for them. They disavowed everything!

    It *should* drop, of course. Since the domain was penalized anyway, what did I have to lose ;) ? Worth a try.... So I tried.

    Looks like if you disavow every link they don't all disapear, maybe they got an algorithm in place to know good/bad apples. Since I disavowed all links from google.com as well LOL I guess they didn't penalize themselves ;)

    Or maybe it's a coincidence as others have speculated. Who knows....if you're f'd anyway might as well try...

    i have been flirting with this idea for awhile now as I have a redesign in the works for my money site and my product pages are no where in google and i was thinking of changing the url structure of these money pages so i am thinking what does it matter if i disavow all the links...

    it almost seems who has the fewest links...ha...

    This doesn't work. This is the first thing I tried on a site of mine ages ago and a friend of mine tried that after all else failed.

    Never worked and not good advice at all.

    Sorry. Lets see some graphs here.

    there might be more to this then meets the eye, b/c this is usually the case...but in the end, who really fucking cares as long as the result is what you received...

    i'll try it and see if its repeated (meaning the result), we need to get a good number of cases to compare to definitively say this is what caused the recovery...

    and there are probably so many other factors that are out of our understanding that it may work for some people and not for others...

    Don't change the url structure! Just disavow the links....

    "All else failed" may be your problem....

    Also, you can't have tested this ages ago, as we're talking 2 weeks ago...

    question: did the customer with the site have gwt installed and did they have a manual action taken against their site?...meaning, did they have the message telling them they have a manual penalty?

    I always look for what Bartosimpsonio has to say about this. Well, I might as well try. I have nothing to lose anyway.

    Does the domain start with the letter "a" and the keyword start with the letter "w" by any chance?

    You must be jesus.... no, you are the son of jesus after he fucked psychic silvia brown.

    But seriously. You marketers really need to have more respect for basic research, stats and
    science in general. You did 1 thing on 1 site, then claim to know what this update is all about.

    Thats akin to me sticking my thumb up my ass, growing 6 inches, then preaching to all the
    midgets in this world to stick their thumbs up their asses so they can also grow taller. In fact,
    I could be wrong... but I think this is how most religions get started.

    Replicate this experiment on 10,000 sites, then report back with your findings, and people
    may take you a bit more seriously.

    I second this. OP you are always coming with early assumptions with so many posts. At the very first moments of penguin 2.1, you said:


    I also remember very well you were saying we should not do anything for some time after these updates because you had read somewhere else about a google patent technology which they monitored the sites making changes during algo update and they punishede them. Here it is:




    Please slow down a bit. I am really confused when I read your replies/threads. You do not have to post 100s of comments every day here.

    Waiting was the right thing to do if you didn't know what to do. I took a risk though and I am sharing the result of that risk. If I could not afford to risk this site, I would not have done it....and would never recommend anyone do it if I wasn't 100% sure. Thus to everyone who said I donno what to do, what should I do, I replied "wait" which was the right and honest thing to tell them.

    Tumblr: it was the Tumblr destruction update. It still is, that bit was right too.

    I can't comment on the rest of your comment, it's subjective and unactionable.

    They had gwt installed and no manual action.

    It'd be great if I could do that. All I could afford is to report back on one site.

    I have disavowed all links to one site that got slapped in the 2.1 update on the 5th of October. With around 10-20 rank drop for all keywords, I'll report back if it recovers as I plan to work on a new site anyway.
