So, on 11/21 I scanned siteA for link problems and to do a detox. The report showed that I had 5,580 links that were a deadly risk. I got a list of the ones that were the most toxic and then submitted a disavow list to Google on 11/25 that contained over 200 domains.
Over the next few weeks, the total number of "Links to My Site" in GMT, went up and down. Towards, the end of December I noticed an additional 2,000 more links to my site than I had on 11/25. I was assumed this meant that Google was crawling more of the web related to my domain and I had more links to check.
So, on 12/25 - recently - I did round 2 of scanning links. I also made the program aware of my past disavow list to Google. Now the new report shows that I have 2,673 deadly links down 2,907 in one month. Also, the new list shows that 18% of my links are deadly. Last month, it was closer to 55%. Major improvements.
Still, those are 18% deadly links to disavow. So, I created another list of domains to disavow and submitted it to Google. I noticed the disavow page at Google does not show all disavow requests made by me, just the most recent one.
Should I continue to check for toxic links every month or how long should I wait? I assume Google will go through the list and disavow the real important ones fast. If they haven't disavowed some after a month, they may never.
I didn't know if there was a rule of thumb, such as you should submit so many disavow requests in such a time span?
It is interesting... because I have another site called SiteB that has continued rank well for the same top keywords and for the heck of it, I scanned siteB for toxic links too. It did show about 11% or 1,016 deadly links. I'm assuming that is the magical number to where siteA which had fallen off of Google might start to gain some respect again. At this rate, if I dropped 2,907 deadly links on siteA in one month, the current figure at 2,673 should dip to around 1,000 approx. by next month.
Exciting times... :)
