Matt Cutts, Head of Google’s Webspam team, announced Google’s Disavow Links Tool at PubCon in mid-October (Check out Janet’s post Live From PubCon: State of the Index with Matt Cutts about the announcment). If you have never engaged in artificial link schemes, this tool is not for you. At Search Mojo we have never participated in any spammy backlink schemes for ourselves or clients, but at an agency you may work with clients who before your engagement had employees or worked with an agency that acquired artificial links, even unbeknownst to them. If you encounter this situation, the Disavow Links Tool may be used to remove unnatural links pointing to your site. Just remember to proceed with caution when using this tool.
