Should You Disavow Links From Spammy Yet High Authority Sites?
Sites with high DA do not necessarily mean they are high quality. Learn what to consider when deciding whether to disavow links.
How to upload disavow links file to get out of Google penalty | How to find bad spam links
This video will show you how to do disavow links, which is a quick way to find and remove penalties on Google. Many people are not aware that they have penalties, but if you have a majority of your rankings on the second page, it’s likely because you bought spammy links. This guide will show you how to find and remove these links to improve your rankings on Google.
1. Go to Google Search Console by typing it in the search bar.
2. Sign in to your account.
3. Click on the links section on the left side of the dashboard.
4. Click on more for top linking sites.
5. Scroll through the list of sites linking to your page.
6. Look for any sites that appear spammy or irrelevant.
7. Select 500 links instead of 20 to view more links at once.
8. Export the list of links to a Google Sheet.
9. Go through the list and delete any sites that you want to keep.
10. Create a file to send to Google to disavow the remaining sites on the list, which will remove the penalties associated with those links.
In conclusion, disavowing links is an important step in improving your rankings on Google. By regularly checking your links and removing any that are spammy or irrelevant, you can reduce penalties and improve your visibility on the search engine. Remember to export the list of links to a Google Sheet and delete any sites that you want to keep, before creating a file to send to Google to disavow the remaining links.
Don’t Use the Disavow File!
Should you use the disavow file? Many SEOs (including myself) believe you should *never* disavow links. It tells Google you are guilty of something, like buying links, or trying to manipulate search rankings.
Why do people use the disavow file?
Most people that are using the disavow file are shooting themselves in the foot because they are listening to what their SEO software is saying. SEM Rush has “toxic links”. Moz has a “link Spam Score”. Unless you built those links yourself to boost your SEO, DO NOT DISAVOW!
The disavow file does nothing. It is Google’s way of catching people admitting to their guilt.
Google already heavily discounts so-called “spammy links” like pharma and adult spam (attempted negative SEO), and scraper sites. These happen to almost every site with a hint of popularity.
You may believe that your content is A+ high-quality content, that your site design deserves to be on the first page of Dribbble, that your link profile is awesome, and everyone of your pages meets searcher intent.
The truth is, these factors have *a lot* more to do with your plummeting rankings than “toxic links” that most of your compeitors also have. Blaming spammy links is easier to do though. Resriting pages, redesigning a site, and building a strong link profile are much more difficult to do than filing a disavow file.
Bottom line: using the disavow file is the nuclear option. Use it wisely, and use great caution before using it. Do not disavow links unless you have been up to no good, and you have already tried to improve all the other areas mentioned above.
