    That's a lot of backpeddling from "NEVER" (your caps, not mine).

    Disavow happens when google decides it to happen, it could be 24 hours, it could be 1 year - again speculation isnt acceptable and people here keep doing it over and over again! Always prepare for the worst possible outcome and do the recommended actions, ie. spammy links disavow them!! Please read googles article. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2648487?hl=en

    personally I dont care about rankings... we have enough business and enough clients (who also recommend us to others etc) to earn far more than we need to for the time being... so getting new business from search is just a side bonus... Keeping the rankings good is just what I do when I'm bored, I like our blog articles to rank well to help people and also have one important page which will always rank well and brings us some big projects.

    But this was never about me, and its not about you!! The whole point of me starting the thread was to alert people who have seen a drop in their rankings who are part of UKBF so they can implement any fix they need to.

    Note: caps "never" and "yet", important.

    I'm just saying what you should have said, not me, personally I would NEVER leave an issue just because it isnt affecting me YET... Google are doing many huge updates to their algo very often recently, and it is unacceptable to have a policy of "not causing an issue, so leave the issue".

    You may not ever regret it, you may severely regret it, who knows, but why leave the uncertainty there.

    I'm done with this thread, everyone do as you wish, but to those who are willing to listen, make sure you alert your SEO advisor of UKBF and spammy links and let them take the best action, to those without an SEO advisor please just DISAVOW any spammy domains, don't leave it to chance.
