Ignore Google Monkey

Google's John Mueller was asked about links from from " and related spammy domains" and if they should be disavowed or something. John responded "We already ignore links from sites like that, where there are unlikely to be natural links. No need to disavow."

Here is the conversation on Twitter:

We know Google has been saying Google ignores most of these bad links and there really isn't a need to disavow them unless you get a manual action or you think it might lead to a manual action. Sites like these, Google seems to handle on its own and does not think SEOs would spend time trying to get links on bad sites like this...

That being said, the words John used were interesting. Specifically "unlikely to be natural links." It is an estimation that these links are more likely to not be natural than be natural. Google ignores them in that case. Of course, John can be just using those words without trying to imply something like that but hey...
