    Went through one of my money sites today and saw that it was hit by a GSA spam of Viagra, Nike, Chinese Anchor text.

    Question is, should I start disavowing or just leave them the way it is?

    Did some further research and I saw some niches whereby the top money site is surviving well even with these anchor texts. So I am not sure if I should disavow TBH.

    Just because a competitor site is still ranking with these anchors means nothing. You can't know whether they have disavowed those links - it is one of the problems with backlink checker tools.

    I got hit by Neg. SEO for one of my sites two months ago. Anchors full with "f**k you", "motherf*ucker" and "dont mess with the competition" :D

    It didn't have any negative effect, actually the opposite. I didn't disavow them and wouldn't do. I got some bad experiences with that.

    You could disavow, but if your site is powered by PBNs you risk exposing these.
    If it's not affected your rankings, ignore mate.
