Can anyone shed some light on the negative effects of removing Bad Links via the Disavow Tool?
The reason I ask is that I outsource SEO, my site took a hit and dropped over 50% of traffic. The cause of this drop is apparently around 1000 poor quality links built back in 2010 or so.
Steps are being taken to remove these links by emailing the webmasters etc, The process is taking a lot of time and my site is financially losing money but we are getting rid of a significant amount of poor links.
My issue is that selection of Paid Links have been identified and in order to get them removed apparently I will need to pay, the total cost is going to run up to a significant amount £1k+. Is there any reason I can't just use the Disavow tool to remove them and save the cash?
Any input would be great.
