    so im pretty new to seo but it seems to me that

    when there are say 1 million irrelavant links to your site
    you tell google to ignore them using Disavow Tool
    the links are no longer hurting your site
    you still have 1 million backlinks

    am i missing something here?

    The juice from them is no longer counted by Google if you use the disavow tool. If I understand your point correctly?

    with a decent affiliate program say in the gambling market the junk traffic click an advert and deposit and those who do would make the whole thing worth while
    providing the site is a single page site it would be good . however the site wouldnt be a viable one for say pagerank as it would have a bad bounce rate etc so litturally would be one page lots of ads no seo.

    Delete your disavow file and wait 10 days and you'll see a boost in serps

    those crappy links never convert. Even xrumer posting random crap on forums does not work nowadays. So traffic from links don't work.

    1 million backlinks are not quality backlinks where you can get consistent traffic, if it was so you wouldn't have required to disavow it :rolleyes:

    Shitty links are not going to bring you traffic. Even if they did, they are not going to convert.

    On the other hand, quality links will get you traffic and they might convert - but then again, if you had quality links you wouldn't be disavowing them in the first place. You're failing to understand the key concept.

    Just because you have millions of links that have been disavowed, doesn't mean you're going to receive traffic that converts.
