A month ago I did some link cleaning, but in my webmaster tools backend they still show up.

How long before google sees the changes?

How will I know if they know or not?

Should I ping the URL's with the link gone?

Submit something or just wait, how long might it take?

Thanks

I believe I read somewhere that disavowed links will continue to remain on your WMT link list, in spite of any Google "demotion".

If true, this is not really helpful, is it? More confusion, and lack of transparency. And wondering, and fretting, and wondering, and ...

My disavowed links (thousands) are still there, from months ago.
However, I am losing WMT total links at the rate of about 1,000 per week.
I just try to concentrate on things that I CAN control, which is less and less, as time goes by.

If I could just stop the daily unexplained hourly takebacks, that would be great.

WMT reports can move slow, be patient.

They won't disappear if you only disavowed...
Google might remove the juice to your site, but they won't/can't delete the links, only site owners can do that.

So, because some jerk creates thousands of bogus links to me, it is MY responsibility to get rid of them, even though there is NO WAY to do it?
Wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Google should take care of this. I shouldn't have to.
It is THEY who are broken, NOT me!

They need a new ranking system, desperately.
