Disavow link decreases my rank significant? 1 Recommended Answer 5 Replies 0 Upvotes

I have a tutorial website, it is https://caramembuat.id/. I work so hard for the content month over month, then I finally get a good ranking in Google. 

But when I check the search console, I see a lot of low-quality backlinks. I don't know where it came from. Here is some sample domain linking to my website:

plugins.movabletype.org
lamblake.doodlekit.com
blogs.mundo-r.com
bumur.mundo-r.com
weblogs.mundo-r.com
www.s-cool.co.uk

Since that website is unrelated to my website, I decided to disavow the domain. Then a bad thing happens in the next few days, my overall traffic from Google decreased by more than 60%. 

Is there any way to fix it? Or I wrong using the disavow link tools? Can I fix it by simply remove disavow link txt file? Please help, thank you.

Well these sites might well have actually been providing 'positive' ranking. 
 
Ie they were contributing to pagerank. So 'removing' the links by disavowing results in lower pagerank ;p
 
disavowing isnt always a good thing. Can harm the website.

Thank you so much for your reply. 

Well, I am desperate right now. :(

I still don't get it, because my website is Indonesia and talking about recipes and food. Then I got link from such website.

Anyway, if I remove file TXT in disavow link, will it fixed?

Mostly my ranking lost is in recipe snippet, there is almost no one of my content right now.

Update case: December 06 2019

I do disavow 79 of 97 domain on December 01 2019, then do reavow on December 05 2019. Today ranking drop is extremely hard, lost almost 90%.

From usually 7000 users daily, become only 900 users daily.

Well, I believe I don't want to use Google Disavow Tools anymore. :(
