Disavow Bad Links
PageRank is Google’s opinion of the importance of a page based on the incoming links from other sites. PageRank is an important signal, but it’s one of more than 200 Google uses to determine website relevancy. In general, a link from a site is regarded as a vote for the quality of your site.
Google works very hard to make sure that actions on third-party sites do not negatively affect a website. In some circumstances, incoming links can affect Google’s opinion of a page or site. For example, you or a search engine optimizer (SEO) you’ve hired may have built bad links to your site via paid links or other link schemes that violate Google’s quality guidelines. Google recommends that you remove as many spammy or low-quality links from your website as possible.
Google’s disavow backlinks page gives you a nice overview of the process. Like we said, it’s a really nasty and tedious job to do, but we’re more than happy to do it so you don’t have to.
