    Soo I'm wokring on one of the clients websites.

    Before me he used some other SEO guy. Well I think the previous one screwed - up quite heavily.

    All other websites, has somewhere around 500 - 1000 BL to domain and 0 Bl for the page that needs to rank. Well my client has 14k to root domain and 6k links to the page that needs to rank. Most of them look pretty spammy, 80 of them are image BL.

    I haven't done proper backlink profile check. But the dillema that I'm having is should I use the Google disavow tool to try to remove the links and start building new BL. I'm afraid that this will sink all the results for my client.

    Or just start building some quality links to the site and keep the spammy links.

    What do you guys think?

    He is positioning somewhere on the second or third page right now. ON - site SEO is good.
