Are you possibly linking aggressively from in-content links to your money pages?
The linking is as short and as succinct as it can be. Just normal navigation as far as I would say.
Didn't Matt Cutts say that internal linking was not an issue some time back? I seem to recall it being discussed but I must admit I never saw the source.
So, removing *some* bad links resulting in *some* recovery makes perfect sense.
I did disavow some links. Are you implying that I may not have gone far enough? I would say that if some improvement has been gained that it's a good sign and not that I need to aggressively remove more links. I mean, where do you stop if that's the case?
