    Default Mass linking from rogue sites

    I just noticed in my GWT that casinosearch(dot)online, a rogue site using cloaking and redirection to trick google is mass linking to my pages.
    I don't see a drastic change in my SERP, should I disavow the links from this domain, or let google understand by itself what is happening?
    Anyone having experience with disavowing links?

    I'd disavow and move on if you have any concerns at all. Better to disavow now (IMO) than to wait and take a "what if" approach.

    Yes disavow. I had the same thing happen about 1 year ago for some of my best keywords. It did affect my rankings for those keywords but after disavowing the links my rankings slowly came back. I now check my backlinks at least once per week if not 2 or 3 times.

    And the sites who hack a good website to get a backlink puzzles me a little. I would think by the time you get any reward for the links, someone is going to turn you in to the affiliate programs and your accounts get cancelled. I guess you just hope no one notices for a while??

    Same boat here. I now run comparisons of my links every week, research the new domains, and print up a new disavow file. And Wonderpunter is right... it's a never ending battle.

    Thanks for the replies.
    This site casinosearch(dot)online has 45K pages indexed by google right now. It just copies google results about casino keywords and replicates them as pages.
    I wonder two things:
    How google hasn't noticed yet to de-index it.
    How none else here is having backlinks from this site. Or have you?

    I disavowed that domain months ago and it's still not fallen off of my WMT lists. After 6 weeks give or take I went back and disavowed individual pages. Still, these links persist. I do sincerely wish big G would scrap casinosearch(dot)online... it's a menace.

    I have read that when you disavow the links always still show up.
    Disavow works like a nofollow tag but from the destination side.
