    If your site has been danced around or dumped down in SERPs by Google Penguin or similar algorithm changes, or you've been targeted by a negative SEO attack that has ruined your sites income potential - you might want to consider the link disavow process.

    Link disavow?

    Ok - joking (oh if only it was funny) aside. To perform a link disavow you need to know what links are pointing to your site, and then sort through them, sifting the good from the bad. The spam from the valuable - and that's where the problem lies.
    The link lists that Google or Majestic or whoever are likely to provide are often HUUUUUUGGGEEEE
    We are talking tens of thousands of lines of links. And for many I've spoken to, that's the end of the story:
    "No way can I work through that lot - 301 or start a new site - this ones bolloxed"

    Quick Simple Tutorials And Automated Tools (Spreadsheets) To Sort Your Massive Link Lists In Minutes Rather Than Days!

    This is an issue, and one I've dealt with for clients and more recently myself as over the last week site after site of mine has been targeted for negative SEO attacks. Huge ones, 60,000 links in a weekend etc. And I wanted a way to get rid of most of the crap quickly. A method of sorting through the links quickly.

    Reducing 10,000 links in a list to 300 I can look through manually. Getting rid of 95-97% of the crap in an automated (or at least semi automated) way
    And while you're at it, how about speeding up preparation needed for a reconsideration process if that is also required. It needed some thought, a method and writing out that method it became... a tutorial for quick efficient link appraisal and disavow list creation.

    So here it is .....
    Code:
      http://goo.gl/U8nz1J
    (not a live link - cut and paste into a browser)

    In less than 20 minutes watching these two videos and reading the relatively small article, downloading the resources and making a cup of coffee - you'll be ready to get rid of these links and get your site back on the road to recovery.

    Get in quick. I reckon Google are going to be neck deep in these requests in the next month or two. Their own fault for being dumb enough to reward spam!

    I was only thinking this earlier as well. I think that's where they are aiming to go, it makes sense for them not to waste resources dealing with links from these sites.. This "punishment" stage is just their way of collecting all the data to do that.

    Yup - that's what my second post was about. Fixed now, plus added another quick video showing how the scrapebox PR checker works. Scrapebox isn't essential for this method, but it helps.

    Cheers Duffers, let me know how you get on. Might make a bot to do the same thing but completely automated, including the PR fetching.

    Meh, never had any real luck with disavow. Link removal is the only way to go to get penalties removed and sort out negative SEO.

    The guide should go into more detail in vetting links as well, determining blog network links, directories and so forth.

    Thanks mate though i'm sure some will get value on scrapebox tips.

    I agree link removal is vital. But using this you can sort out that easily as well.
    I've added a couple of macros since that just list the top 20 sites spammed (which in my case accounts for over 2/3rds of the links) asked for blanket removal on all of them through a Gmail account (so Google can verify it)

    While creating a list for disavow is one idea, just getting a handle on your links somewhere that becomes or evolves into a tool set for looking at the general crap. Lowest PR, most spammed, longest URL canonical depth etc. All that's being added to the spreadsheet at the moment though the VB I'm using works well in Excel but falls over like a drunk auntie at a wedding inside Openoffice. So might put the whole lot in Ubot and that will take some time to do.

    Also decided to turn it into a case study. So the Link removal requests and process, link disavow and results will all eventually get published and any resources used or made in the process will be linked to or given away free.

    Can't say fairer than that :)

    Thank you for this share!
    Haven't needed it yet, and hopefully will never need it, but I've bookmarked it, just in case!
