        I am not sure how you can delete bad links. Because as per my understanding you dont have any control over other sites from which you are getting backlinks. So I prefer creating high PR / high quality backlinks to improve ranking.

          You can always keep a log of any links you get, and then sort them out by crappiest to decent, and disavow the ones you think are bad.

        Why would you even consider building bad backlinks in the first place? That's a little like placing explosives around your house and then coming home one day to find out your house has been blown up.

    Before deleting the old backlinks, you must figure it out if they are the reason of your site getting hit.
    If you have build natural good quality backlinks you should know it and do not remove them.

    Continue writing great content, get high PR quality links, and do things the right way. Google is getting smarter, unfortunately :/. I actually saw all my rankings go up after the update. no more spun content and automated tools for me.

    Did you manage to get your position back after 20 days? If not, then this is a serious problem... Try to write some new and fresh (*UNIQUE) content and submit to a few HIGH QUALITY from websites with HIGH AUTHORITY!

    Don't remove any links.. Let your website the way it is... Yes remove outgoing links from homepage (if you have recently put any). Three of my top ranked blog posts disappeared from Google last month and I lost almost 50% traffic. But yesterday, my blog traffic increased by 200%+. I then searched Google and found the posts are ranking at their previous position again... , so keep passion and wait... Google will rank them back.. If they are totally invisible in search, then there is nothing to worry about.. You will loss some present visitors but you will get it back after a few days..
