    Should you bother disallowing low quality links with brand/non-commercial anchor text


    Hi Guys,

    Doing a link audit and have come across lots of low quality web directories pointing to the website.

    Most of the anchor text of these directories are the websites URL and not comercial/keyword focused anchor text.

    So if thats the case should we even bother doing a link removal request via google webmaster tools for these links?

    Cheers.

    I would say, just create the list of low quality backlinks that you want to remove. You need to create the disavow.txt file and upload it on the Google webmaster disavow tool. In that way, you can disavow your low quality backlinks without bothering link removal request via google webmaster tools.

    Here is the format of Disavow file.

    # This is a bad link. Naughty link!

    www.example.com/page-with-bad-1ink.html

    # This is a domain with multiple bad links,

    domain: baddomain12112.com

    After creating a list, upload it on https://www.google.com/webmasters/to...vow-links-main

    for me, I will not do anything. Just build new quality backlinks. That is my experience.
