OK, so I had a domain that I abused and eventually got penalised. In fact it was about 14 months ago that it got its penalty. The methods I used were far from great but I managed to remove a lot of the biggest offenders directly.
In the last two months the site has shown considerable signs of recovery. Previously it was not ranking for sitename or site name - which it now does. It's even getting to around pages 2-10 for some of its old keywords.
The question is, I have been analysed the links that remain and whilst some of them are fine, there are many coming from sites that have been deindexed.
So, the question is, do you think that I should use the disavow tool on these poor backlinks that I know that I am receiving no benefit for? The site is currently NOT penalised which is why I am hesitant on doing so.
The truth is, I like the name of the domain and don't want any of the reckless moves I made in the past to come back and haunt me.
I guess I would also like to know from people who have had some success with the disavow tool too.
