Second Reconsideration Failled - Any Help or Sugestions would be extremely appreaciated1 Recommended Answer
We have a partial penalty in place and have been working diligently since April 2013 to remove any and all unnatural links to our site. We started with over 150k links and have gotten them down to just about 12k. All links were contacted multiple times and we provided proof of our work in contacting each website (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_RnM_AdwlOzRm55V3JKNVNoMDQ/edit?usp=drive_web). We have also submitted a disavow tool with hundreds of domains that we have determined are impossible to contact.
This example URL was has it's domain included in our disavow list.
We feel like we have exhausted all possibilities on our end and are not sure where to go from here.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
- The disavow tool should be used primarily if you have done everything you can to remove an inorganic link and still cannot get the link removed. If you are primarily disavowing links and not trying to remove them, your reconsideration request may not be successful.
- Double check your disavow file and make sure the link you mentioned is properly disavowed. You can download your latest Disavow file by going to the Disavow tool, clicking "Disavow Links", and clicking "Download".
- Documentation is really good and can help when reviewing your site for reconsideration. Make sure that when you send in documentation that it's accessible, though. It looks like https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_RnM_AdwlOzRm55V3JKNVNoMDQ/edit?usp=drive_web hasn't been shared properly.
The only thing I can think of is that the most updated disavow file we sent in was submitted about 2 days before we sent in the letter. Is there a chance they didn't get to put it into effect before they decided on our letter, hence, seeing that domain as an active link?
and disavow the rest, however, the fella on this thread said they may not accept it, contrary to what matt cutts said.
so, my site, for example, is prob best to be moved to a complete new domain with no links?
