    Question Disavow file formatting


    We have been given the task of disavowing some spammy backlinks for a website. Some of the domains use non-western characters sets, these will not display in the .txt file we are using to disavow.

    Is there a way to do this?

    I wasn't able to find an official Google tool or comment on this but they say Alexa can translate the non-English domains into their English versions:
    You can use alexa.com/siteinfo/[non-enlgish domain name] and see what will come up. Still, we have no way to find out whether Google will accept and interpret this properly... For what it's worth, it's better than nothing

    Comments on this post

    • RoyalBlueStuey agrees : Sound good, will give it a go
    • Pierre Benneton agrees : This is the way to go. Was looking for the official Google reply in one of the Webmaster Office Hours videos but just can't put my hand on it...
    Everything will be ok in the end

    If it's not ok, it's not the end
