Google Disavow Links Tool Live

 
 

After a few months of panic, fair amount of Google penalties and increased efforts from Google in fighting spam we now have something we have been looking forward to, a disavow tool from Google.

You can take a look at the recent post on GWT blog explaining the disavow tool. Even better is to just watch the video Matt Cutts recently published:

Now the first thing I have to stress out after reading the post and watching the video is that you should not think getting a penalty removed will be easy as pie from now on. No, what you need to do is still the same, and that is to remove all the links that you can manually and by contacting webmasters, the disavow tool should be used as a last resort for the links that you were in no way able to change or remove, keep that in mind. This Google help article explains a few more details.

On the official post there is a great Q/A that explains most of the things, one to keep in mind is that disavow tool is similar to rel=canonical, in a sense that it is not a command, but a suggestion, and Google will not disavow all links that you submit.

The submission process is pretty straightforward, all you need is to create a .txt file with all the links you want disavowed and upload it to the tool, with one domain/page per line. You can add a “#” if you want to comment on something.

I’m looking forward to hearing comments from SEOs and webmasters that used the tool and what changed afterwards, how long did it take for a change or was there any change at all? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Many comprehensive information. Hopefully this tool works and does not quiver like Bing dissalow tool, which I do not do the right job.
