Disavow Link Issues



This post outlines some common mistakes people make when submitting a disavow file.  Here is a quick run down of things to watch for:

  1. Only submit a plain text file (.txt)
  2. Disavow sites rather then trying to find specific pages to disavow
  3. Make sure the syntax is correct
  4. Explanations go in the reconsideration request, not in the disavow
  5. Don’t use comments, and if you must make sure they are properly coded
  6. Clean up your link profile first, then disavow what you can’t actually fix
