Bing’s Disavow Unwanted Backlinks tool empowers you to inform Bing about any untrustworthy links directed towards your website swiftly and conveniently. The steps to disavow a link using this tool are as follows:
- Decide on the specific scope of the URL – whether it’s an entire domain, a directory, or an individual page.
- Insert the URL(s) of the domain, directory, or page that encompasses the link(s) you intend to disavow. You can simultaneously submit multiple URLs.
- Click on the ‘Disavow’ button.
Managing Disavowed Backlinks
The ‘Disavowed’ list presents a comprehensive record of all domains, directories, and pages you’ve disavowed. To streamline your view, you can apply filters based on the kind of disavowed URL, such as domain, directory, or page.
To save the list of currently disavowed URLs into a CSV format file, click ‘Download all.’ If you wish to remove a URL from the disavowed list, hover over the URL and click the ‘reavow’ icon. You can select multiple URLs to download or reavow them collectively using the action bar at the bottom of the page.
The information gathered from the disavow signals aids Bing in recognizing irrelevant or low-quality links directed to your pages. Bing generally normalizes many links that you may prefer to distance yourself from.
While using this tool may not lead to a significant shift in your website rankings, the shared information is valuable in helping Bing understand your intent regarding links aimed at your site.
There’s no restriction on the number of links you can disavow using this tool.
Despite disavowing certain links, they will continue to be displayed and accounted for as part of the ‘Backlinks’ report.
