Google: Disavow Tool Hurts Too Many Sites

Google hasn’t been a huge fan of folks using the disavow link tool but the tool remains because it may help some sites that simply have a lot of bad links pointing to it.

If that is that case, you have to question yourself in terms of what links you are disavowing…
