Can I reverse disavow file after removing some good links?

I spent the last 4 months manually removing links as well as removing links using the disavow file.

Google finally removed the manual action from my site... yeah... but my SERP is the pits! nowhere near what it used to be..

I was desperate, so I removed just about every link I can find.. Now I look back at the disavow file, there are lot of "natural" links I should not have included in the disavow file. It's safe to go back and take out some of these "natural" links in disavow file and re-submit it?

Not sure if you can do that, but you could contact those webmasters and get a new backlink if they're willing to give you one.

In that case I don't see where you've got much to lose. You would be taking a gamble that Google might penalize you again, but it might be worth the risk.

I'm not 100% sure, but if you submit a new shorter disavow list, then I think it will supercede the previous list, and the process will start over using the new list.. If so, then you could un-disavow the "good" backlinks by not including them on the new list.

Yes, you can 'un-disavow' links by removing them fom he list and re uploading. Done it many times and caused no problems at all. Good luck.

Thanks for the info... did your "un-disavow" help your ranking?

After Google removed my penalty, I did get some traffic back.. so a little traffic is better than nothing.. I don't want to risk losing the little traffic that I got back either.

You're not necessarily going to go back to where you were after the links are disavowed. Remember, you're changing the "footprint" of your site; if you had an unnatural boost from those links, you're going to have to work harder to get natural links to recover.

Another question I have.. If I suddenly "un-disavow" 500-1000 links, does Google see that as "unnatural" and penalize te site again?
