So if you have any links that have been downgraded by PENGUIN they have already been disavowed by PENGUIN and you don't need to worry about them anymore.
You can certainly delete, or edit with rel="nofollow" or disavow them - but what confirmation did you get that Google took action against "that particular link?" ... or will take action against that link in the future?
In my experience if such a link wasn't devalued by Google's PENGUIN all you are doing is destroying your ranks even more.
The linkpages are not on my site, they are on others sites, and most are abandoned or not taken care of sites.
I remember many years ago I had a penalty in yahoo due of them, and I wrote them all (I saw) and most didnt do anything about them, finaly yahoo lifted the penalty and think they started to ignore them.
The linkpages are from year 2002.
I cant edit or add any nofollow on them, these pages should be updated and changed however the linkfarm disappeared many years ago but there are still pages out ther.
How can I know the links were devaluated by penguin and not my site being devaluated?
The only thing I know is that I downloaded backlinks and saw some of them being discovered between 2006 and 2011 wich I didnīt expect.
At least many years ago google ignored those linkfarms backlinks on several domains, they said, if you dont have the pages on your site, not to worry about the backlinks. However many years passed.
