disavowing domains & scraped content
apart from getting an 'unnatural links' message I am not sure how anyone can be entirely 'confident' in knowing that certain links are causing issues for a website.
"most normal or typical sites will not need to use this tool."
Not sure these days what is a 'normal' or 'typical' website as many/most sites in my niche will have questionable backlinks.
This hasn't resulted in any negative effects on my website. Should I leave the links? Does Google know these are uncharacteristic links and disregard them? Or should I disavow them?
We have had a manual penalty lifted from the website in recent weeks 3rd September.
Then came the algorithmic update Penguin 2.1 on Friday.
The site has since lost all rankings for the 100 or so keywords we were tracking over night - seems to be site wide and not link anchor specific.
How can this be possible if the links that have been disavowed should no longer be counted? Clearly these low level links with anchor text (for around 12 keywords) are the problem still, despite being disavowed.
It is said that the only way to recover from an algorithm penalty is to change domain or remove all links (not really feasible).
Techniclaly this has already been done, so is there a time lag between the disavow and the penguin update here - and if so if there any chance to recover?
