I submitted a disavow file several months ago, as I believed some of the links pointing to my site were spammy, nasty, stupid low quality sites, etc...Not sure if it matters, but these domains end with.com.br and they appear to be completely irrevelant to my site. Perhpas they are directories...not 100% sure. Regardless, they link to my site several thousand times.
My disavow text was created so the entire url would be disavowed: domain:thesite'sdomain.com
In looking through my G. Webmaster Tools, Links Pointing to Your Site section, a few of the domains in my disavow file still appear within the list of "who links the most" even though they were listed in my disavow file (at the top of the list, too). They look like subdomains as they are similar to: www.section-of-site.guide.thesite'sdomain.com.
So I have a few questions:
1) any idea why Google would ignore my disavow request for a few domains?
2) does Google tend to ignore some disavow requests thinking the links are not bad?
3) is it wise to submit another disavow file with just the few domains Google seemd to have overlooked?
In researching this issue, I come upon some conflicting information. Not too hard to believe (sarcasm...). So I'm checking in with the experts here.
I do not have any manual actions or any other oddity I can think of.
Thanks for your assistance.
