Google Disavow Link ToolThe Google Disavow Tool is probably one of the more talked about webmaster functions in the past few months. New questions come up about it every day.

Martin Macdonald ‏asked Google's Matt Cutts on Twitter if Google had "any plans to allow wildcard disavows" like they do for the robots.txt protocol? Matt Cutts responded, "not that I know of," which means they are not in the plans.

Here is the tweet:

I assume as time goes on, more and more advanced functionality will come to the tool. But right now, Google has said, they want you to use the disavow tool like you would a machete.

Matt Cutts, a POS and paid liar no site owner should trust. I love it how Barry and Danny Sullivan are just his PR monkeys, repeating every word of his.

Trolling is so unbecoming on you... whoever you are. Matt says a lot of things, and he's very adept at carefully crafted answers, giving away no more than he intends to. That hardly warrants calling someone a POS or a liar. In fact, in many years of examining his statements, I've yet to find a single instance that could reasonably be considered a falsehood. Partial answer? Sure! Non-committal response:? Absolutely! Lie? Never that I have been able to see. I would say you'd be much better off learning to understand what he says (and doesn't say)... it'd hold a lot more value for you than discounting everything he says. Of course, hiding behind an anonymous avatar and taking cheap shots at someone you don't know is SO much easier, right? I'd add that Barry and Danny are journalists, reporting on industry items... that doesn't mean Matt has his hand up their asses.
