Fear EmoiticonA month ago, I posted a poll asking our readers if they fear someone citing your web site in the Google Disavow Tool?

The results are in, with 250 plus votes tallied, that some SEOs do fear it, many are concerned but most say they are not worried by it.

Here is the break down:

  • 57% say they do not fear someone citing their web sites in a disavow link request
  • 29% say they do not fear it but are somewhat concerned if they learned someone cited their web sites in a disavow link request
  • Only 14% fear the idea that someone can cite their web sites in a disavow link request

Google's Disavow Link Tool Fear Poll

Why are some concerned? Well, as we covered, some SEOs are using it as a fear tactic.

Forum discussion continued at WebmasterWorld & Cre8asite Forums.

Disclaimer: Please see my poll disclaimer post before coming to any conclusions on these results.
