“Some people do things that they can bill, regardless of whether it’s needed or makes sense,” Google’s John Mueller said in response to disavow link services, adding, “Some people do things that they can bill, regardless of whether it’s needed or makes sense.”
At PubCon recently, Google’s Gary Illyes reiterated his disapproval of the advice. He stated once more that, for the most part, it hurts more than it helps.
“To be honest, anyone who does not know, should not use it,” John added recently on Twitter. Because of this, the tool does not appear in the UI of the search console. That is the reason our informing has been every time to not utilize it except if you know there’s a genuine issue. In other words: Avoid using disavow when in doubt.”
Therefore, unless you have a manual action, don’t use the link disavow tool anymore.
