I have now used link detox. It was a very good service (I phoned several times) at a reasonable price. I discovered horrendous links from sites that were closed due to malware and literally dozens of low-quality article sites that all copied my articles from the higher-quality article sites. I put a lot in the disavow tool and deleted all articles except from ezine articles. Let;s see what happens.
Nothing will happen IMHO.
A useful analogy.
You are on the highway and driving 30 mph over the speed limit. You know you are breaking the law but you continue at your pace.
You get a call on your mobile phone from a friend that was also driving on that highway and a few minutes ahead and they noticed the police had a radar trap and stop speeders.
1. Slow down and disavow the speed you were doing in advance of the police stopping you? Or,
2. Continue on at your pace and not care about the advance warning you got?
When you get caught doing 30 mph over the speed do you:
1. Seriously think the cop will disavow the radar signal simply not care that you didn't care that you were speeding? OR
2. Give you a ticket and/or lose your license?
Disavowing is a preemptive measure not a Postmortem Hail Mary tactic.
PENGUIN is also a preemptive measure... you can't fix a preemptive measure by using a different preemptive measure.
