Tell Google which links you would like Google to ignore. He clarifies that it is not definitive, “its a suggestion”
A major standout is that the video is full of warnings.
Here is the guide on what to do.
- Get those links removed from the web. Write to people to get all of them taken down, write to webmasters multiple times.
- When you have some certain fraction and there’s still a small fraction of those links left, THEN you can use the disavow links too.
- How to use the tool…
- Investigate recent links (the new addition of “download recent links” from Webmaster Tools)
- One, two or three examples on their messages to you
- Warning: This isn’t the definitive list, you’ve got to find other links like these too
Warning: We want to reiterate that most people do not need to do this. If you’re normal, this is not a tool you need to use.
Only if use this tool if, if, if.
