    Do you still disavow?


    Following the recent real time penguin update, it was implied that disavowing (although recommended) was no longer strictly necessary. One of the sites I'm working on attracts lots of spammers, who naturally get banned at some point. The question is, do you think I still need to disavow these sites or will Google just devalue their links?

    If your domain is established in Google/powerful enough it will not affect you. Google just knows that strong sites have enemies and will dismiss any spammy activity - meaning will not take it to account when it comes to ranking your site (of course everything has its limits).

    The main question that you have to ask yourself is your ranking are dropping or not? If yes, then go to disavow tool and block them. Other than that I would not care about them. For more info check this thread Spammy backlinks

    Google has already stated that they are no longer penalizing for bad links.
