Manual Reviews

Many consultants & webmasters wrongly believe the more data you have the better you can prepare a domain for a Manual Review’s Reconsideration Request. Sifting through more natural links data does not help you clear a domain from having a manual review.

It is equally important to note that all unnatural links do not need to be removed, edited, or disavowed. You have to show “a good faith attempt” to cleanup.

Google’s Webmaster Tool spreadsheets is all you need to clear a Manual Review and provides you every link down a very granular level.
