Should I use disavow tool for irrelevant links?
Unnatural links are any links which have been placed by the site owner or someone that works for them, and that includes directory links, links exchanged, forum links, anything of that nature. Google wants to see them gone anyway, so StevieDs guide is suitable for that.
If you want to get rid of unwanted links, which is possible because your client doesn't want to come up in the search results for gardening terms, you should take the same course and disavow. Disavowing is the same as telling Google to ignore those links.
You have to remember though that removing or disavowing any links means that Google will see your client's site as less authoritive, as it has less "votes" - especially if you remove/disavow links from reputable .edu pages. Expect a drop in traffic because her site will rank naturally for her keywords.
And remember, that Pagerank number is just one of the 200 signals that Google takes into account when ranking sites - and some Googlers have said it isn't updated often and it's value is low compared to other signals, so it's safe to ignore it.
The spiritual site could mention things like herbs, sacred plants and other things, with links to the relevant gardening site's pages on growing them. Things like that.
As long as both sites used noFollow links between them, they would have both flourished. Instead you tried to graft one onto the other, and it's not working.
My question is that my site has .org links from chamber of commerce business listing websites, all these links are do-follow links, Is it okay or do i make them no-follow?
