|Round 2 for Disavow List to Google - when to submit more disavow links?|
So, on 11/21 I scanned siteA for link problems and to do a detox. The report showed that I had 5,580 links that were a deadly risk. I got a list of the ones that were the most toxic and then submitted a disavow list to Google on 11/25 that contained over 200 domains.
Over the next few weeks, the total number of "Links to My Site" in GMT, went up and down. Towards, the end of December I noticed an additional 2,000 more links to my site than I had on 11/25. I was assumed this meant that Google was crawling more of the web related to my domain and I had more links to check.
So, on 12/25 - recently - I did round 2 of scanning links. I also made the program aware of my past disavow list to Google. Now the new report shows that I have 2,673 deadly links down 2,907 in one month. Also, the new list shows that 18% of my links are deadly. Last month, it was closer to 55%. Major improvements.
Still, those are 18% deadly links to disavow. So, I created another list of domains to disavow and submitted it to Google. I noticed the disavow page at Google does not show all disavow requests made by me, just the most recent one.
Should I continue to check for toxic links every month or how long should I wait? I assume Google will go through the list and disavow the real important ones fast. If they haven't disavowed some after a month, they may never.
I didn't know if there was a rule of thumb, such as you should submit so many disavow requests in such a time span?
It is interesting... because I have another site called SiteB that has continued rank well for the same top keywords and for the heck of it, I scanned siteB for toxic links too. It did show about 11% or 1,016 deadly links. I'm assuming that is the magical number to where siteA which had fallen off of Google might start to gain some respect again. At this rate, if I dropped 2,907 deadly links on siteA in one month, the current figure at 2,673 should dip to around 1,000 approx. by next month.
Exciting times... :)

When you submitted the second disavow file, have you included domains you disavowed previously?
I believe that disavow file is NOT incremental and that if you have more domains to disavow, you resubmit disavow file that includes new domains as well as domains that you have disavowed before.

Since disavow is not incremental, it makes sense for Google to only show the most recent disavow file.
@ aakk9999. When you submitted the second disavow file, have you included domains you disavowed previously?
- Yes, I did.
*** Thanks for the reply. I will just wait this out about a month and then do another update and see where I stand with deadly links.
Good luck! With that many links, now did you do a scan? GWT seems really inefficient.
I personally just sent in a disavow list of 600 domains that were spamming my site link.
I scanned my site using detox software. The list seemed legit. I checked most of them by hand and they looked very spammy. None of them were natural or a least well ranking sites.
thanks so much, I'll try that out!
