SEOs Split On Using Google Disavow Link Tool

Google Disavow Link Tool pollA couple months ago, we ran a poll asking Have You Used The Google Disavow Tool Yet?

After close to 500 responses on that poll, I wanted to share the results.

In this case, it seems about half used it or will use it and half did not.

  • 48% said they did not use the disavow tool yet
  • 43% said they did use the disavow tool
  • 8% said they will use the disavow tool soon

The disavow link tool by Google launched 11 weeks ago and it is interesting to see how many SEOs have used it or not. Personally, I have not but I don't offer SEO services.

Please see our poll disclosure policy.

Hopefully SEO's don't have to use it too much but there cases where combatting negative SEO forces it. And it does really happen. Also, many web designers seem to build in site-wide links in footers / WordPress sites and this has quite possibly hit a lot of "innocent" sites.

You looking to create some more links to disavow? You must really love Excel spreadsheets.

This is very interesting… I'm curious to know what SEO methods (those who used it) performed on their website to get to this place.
