Hi, I will explain the situation i am in for trying to rank a local website. Situation: The position for my main kw is around 70+ - 100 around 3-4 months ago. Then i started to disavow my links (that i thought is spammy) and remove some links (total not more than 100 links). After around 1-2 months, my position for my main kw dropped to around 150+. Currently, for my main kw, i don't see it anymore, i searched all the pages, till page 31. No sign of my site at all. During these months, i have been adding more citations, directories to this site. I have also added some articles targeting other kws (around 4-5 kws) where it started ranking at around 80 to 100+ pos. Questions: 1)So now my main kw is not ranking at all. Is it due to the disavow that i have submitted? Or my backlinks is not enough? 2)Or is my site penalized (algorithm)? *There is no manual penalty warning ,etc. sent to my webmaster account. 3)Should i remove the disavow file that i have submitted? and continue building more links? 4)I am really confuse as i saw a website (created on march 2015) ranking at around page 3 with only less than 100 backlinks checked from ahrefs, most were local ads links, etc. But my site has been around for at least 2 years alr.. Been first page before (last year) and then dropped all the way down.. I am trying to rank it back again. As i currently plan to build web 2.0s and PBN for this local site.. I am worried that those efforts and money will be wasted if this site is already "Penalized"... Any advice guys?
