In Matt Cutts Panda 2.0 Release video he mentions using the Google Disavow link tool. I am beginning to do a little bit of research about this, and trying to figure out if there are backlinks I need to disavow.
I have never used black hat backlinks, but I do have backlinks show up that seem questionable in my mind. My first question is if we need to be using this tool before the release of Panda 2.0.
Secondly, in Google Web Master Tools it warns to be careful how you use this tool because it could have negative effects on ranking. Before I spend too much time on this, I wonder if this is something I should be doing. Are others here at Hubpages using this tool? If so, how are you identifying spammy backlinks?
I see the link disavow tool as a last ditch attempt to get back into Google's graces when:
1. your website/subdomain has clearly been penalised by the Penguin algo (not Panda) and
2. you know you have been building lots of dodgy links and
3. you have personally tried to get all of your self created spammy links removed from other websites and have a record of this
If you haven't been building crap links and your site has not been penalised, then there is no reason to use it.
Thanks for answering. I want to go back and finish tweaking my hubs for the better. I would like to have that done before panda 2.0. I don't want to waste time on something that won't make a difference.

Hi Hubbers,I happen to come across this really interesting free tool yesterday called Penguin 2.1. It hooks up with Google Analytics to access hubs and shows the exact dates your hub has been hit by Panda, Penguin, Structural, Local, and other Google programs. It goes several years back, and you...

So maybe I don't have enough traffic to be a reliable indicator, but I think I am still being A/B tested by Google. Several weeks before September 6 = best traffic ever, then thrown off a cliff by Google. Then the beginning of November, went from almost 0 traffic to best traffic ever...

I don't get involved much in the forums, but I have been following with interest the ground-hog day discussions about the latest Panda update at Google.I think we'll find that, after a brief period in which everything re-jigs to the new tune, this update (much like the last one) will be good for...

I jumped on the bandwagon and signed up for Market Samurai.Having spent some time playing with it, I'd advise people to think twice about signing up.I can see the value, however having used the rank checker and SEO competition for my websites, all it's achieved is to make me want to throw in the...
