Would you disavow these links?

    My site has been hit by someone I assume tyring to do negative SEO. Ive picked up 2500 links in the last few days with all of them using my main keyword as the anchor text. They are nearly all placed on the same site too, mostly its a spam site with pharmacy links etc. Would you disavow these links before Google ( might) take notice of them or will Google look and ignore them. They have all been built in about 3 days or so. Maybe some more are being build now, im not sure.

    Thanks

    You should contact and request the webmaster who owns that spammy site to remove your link before submitting it to Disavow tool.

    Please read this reply I posted earlier in another thread.

    Islandman,

    Smartman has some good tips. You have to try and get these links taken down on your own before you can submit a request via the disavow tool. Google wants to see that you have done everything in your power to remedy the situation on your own and that you are turning to them as a last resort. Also make sure to take detailed account of your activities. Offer any information you can on how this problem occurred and what you are doing to fix it.

    Here is a good post on using the tool,

    Hope that helps and good luck,

    Shawn

    I think that you should have them removed. If it is going to be negative SEO you do not want that.

    You can just disavow the domain, you don't have to disavow each url.
