I disavowed lots of domains linking in - arabaic / chinese character set domains, lots of others I had no idea WHY they were linking to my site (if you don't know WHY, then it's strange why they have a non-contextual link in a list of links....no "recommended sites", just a link) - I disavowed each domain, not just the page. There was a handful (7 or 8) I'd built myself and I simply removed them as I had hosting access. I explained this in my disavow text file.
I spent around 8 hours going through the GWT spreadsheet. A lot of inbound links were on pages that contained viruses (my anti-virus told me this), goodness knows if I caught a virus or not on the pages that had viruses my anti-virus didn't detect. Very bad.
Google emailed me back saying I still have unnatural links pointing to my site. They didn't give me examples.
So I've given up - I'm not spending more time on this.
What to expect? Expect nothing to be honest - and hope for the best.
