Link examples in most recent reconsideration notice have already been disavowed!

I've read the FAQs and searched the help center. 

My URL is: http://bit.ly/1ag3D6g

 

We received the following reconsideration request message in WMT.........

 

We've reviewed the links to your site and we still believe that some of them are outside our quality guidelines.

Sample URLs:

·         http://championcasinocorner.com/evaluating-casino-gambling-sites/

·         http://www.pokerdeposit.eu/articles/150677/The-Renewed-Benefits-of-Casino-Reviews

·         http://www.gigablast.com/get?q=&c=dmoz3&d=30638578882&cnsp=0

 

The above URL's have all been disavowed at a domain level in the most recent disavow file uploaded. Given this, how is then that these URL's are still being flagged?

This happens - they're just samples, examples of the type of link you need to be working on.

It's unfortunate but it's not an error as such.

Hey Mark - 

You still there? Is there a possibility of you posting your disavow txt file? Sometimes there's an issue with how it's submitted, but I'm always curious about bad link examples. Google isn't perfect, but if we have examples of them showing example links that are truly not useful perhaps I can escalate them.

Hey Mark,

You may also want to look into the following c blocks. Looks like some of the manipulative links were spread across a few neworks, which is pretty easy for G to spot. 

The columns are C Block, # of Domains with Links Pointing to Your Site on that C Block, and the Total Number of Backlinks from those domains.

Hey Mark-

I had a really similar experience and to their credit, Google removed my penalty after I replied and highlighted the fact that those links had been disavowed.

I wonder if perhaps the folks doing the initial spam checks aren't accustomed yet to looking into the section for disavowed links?

It seems that everything I've been hearing is that a first reconsideration request is always rejected, in hopes that you will do more work to clean up.  

Can anyone say that they got a revoked message on the first request?

All requests are manually checked - I've never heard anything that all first requests are rejected. I've seen people do fine on their first request, I've seen others do not-so-well and do 10 requests! It's all about the work up front. Stop trying to do just enough to get by - really try and take care of the problem.
