Ive got nice links to my site, all very organic yadda yadda.

Suddenly out pops a link from...check this....the Ukranian Japanese car club! I looked up the page with google translate and they are having a conversation about stuff in general that relate to my niche and someone links to me. Its all quite innocent to me, but SE's are, compared to humans, still a bit dumb and their algo's wont appreciate that people can have tangents in daily conversations.

 

Would you bother to disavow? My hunch is just let it be, I am sure Google is not that over zealous to over analyze that one link...

 

As usual I think that the key thing is that this one link does not form a pattern - therefore - im cool....right?

 

Also - my reading is to use GDisavow with a pinch of salt, i.e. use it when you absolutely must, or wouldya disagree with me?

You're probably better off spending your time focusing on improving your site(s) rather than on being a gatekeeper of who's linking to you, particularly if you've not gotten any warnings.

Right

Agree. For most sites, including yours I would think, it's very rarely if ever needed.

An interesting side note is that I started working with 2 blog categories on my site that will either potentially draw the wrath of G & co or possibly draw interest from stupid things leading to disavow. 

 

Spam and scams - I'm now regularly posting spam and scams that slip through the cracks (some intentionally) to the appropriate categories. I sort of wonder whether search engines will be smart enough to figure out that the intention is to identify and expose scams or interpret these categories themselves as spammy crap and dispatch my site to Pluto.

You don't need to disavow anything unless you receive an unnatural links warning. I have tons of stupid spam linking to my site and wouldn't dream of wasting my time with disavowing them. 

 

If you're not the one getting them, then no worries.

That's good to know. I guess I just wanted some direction with the best course of action.....

 

thanks

Actually that's EXACTLY the kind of thing they do 'understand' and is PRECISELY the kind of links they hope to find.

 

It's quite possibly THE most "valuable" link your URLs have.
