Most folks don't report their successes , so when they do its a big bonus rising above the noise.I disagree.
UPDATE: One more success to report using the disavow tool
I haven't seen any clearcut cases at all.
I'm still not clear whether or not you only need to use the Disavow tool if you receive a warning in Web Master Tools.
Tom Anthony - Can you confirm that the disavow tool is automatic? Or do people need to file a reconsideration request? Is the answer different depending on whether there is a manual penalty or an algorithmic decrease?
Matt Cutts - The disavow tool is automatic for any algorithmic rankings (such as Penguin and Panda).
"Spent 15 hours creating a disavow list, submitted that with documentation and everything. Still get the manual penalty warning. Google is just laughing at us."
"Google staff will just keep refusing you one try after the other, no matter how hard you try removing or disavowing the links."
The disavow tool works absolute wonders if used correctly. What I think a lot of you are realising is that you are disavowing a lot of bad links.
"Can You Test The Google Disavow Tool?"
In fact, at SMX Advanced, I believe Matt Cutts brought it up and said that is why they have a delay when processing the disavow tool. At least, that is one reason.- [seroundtable.com...]
@thepombear - there's some views surrounding that article and connecting thread that the disavow process is going to be slow because of the rinse and repeat involved in not losing rankings by accidentally taking down good links.
