    Just like the title, I purchased some PBNs a while ago on BHW and now around 15 of them were deindexed.
    Is there anything you can do to recover beside submitting the disavow files?

    I am curious about this as well.

    Also, how much content was on them? Did they look at least half decent? What was the OBL?

    I bought them from one of the BHW services long ago and it took a while for the links to show up in the WMT (since the seller doesn't give the full report).

    I just checked them and many off them were deindexed, so decide to disavow all of them.

    The contents and OBL are considerably good.

    so you bought pbn backlinks, and now those backlinking sites are deindexed from google.
    Are there any signs of penalty on your main site, like drop in traffic or warning message in wmt ?

    There are significant drops in ranking and traffic for my site, but no manual penalty in WMT.

    You rented links on PBNs, you didn't buy the PBNs.

    The seller sold links on those pages to some Google rep and they got busted. Remember Google can also buy services in order to out the PBN.

    Possible as well. With a wave of disavows this PBN seller is screwed. Everyone must stop using google webmaster tools if they want to survive. Basically Google has put the entire WWW to work for them, while they show ads next to your content in SERPs.

    mention the dates when you ordered the pbn links, when they appeared in wmt and when you traffic started dropping.

    You should actually remove the links - and probably kill the PBNs all together if they are no longer indexed. If you're linking to your money site from a penalized PBN that could cause issues....
