WMT is always updating a new disavow file so why should they not consider changes? it would be illogical in my point of view

Q1: Within WebmasterTools, you should be able to drill down on those links. On the "Links to your Site" section for your US site, simply click on the referring domain link (in this case the AU domain), then click on the any of the links that contains the /feed/ part in the URL. This will (or should) show you the pages on the AU domain that contain links to ...

Please please please do not rely on these online back link sites! They are God awful!! If you really need to know what is going on, you will have to do it yourself. I suggest that people keep http://www.screamingfrog.co.uk/seo-spider/ in their arsenal/tool box. It comes in handy. I do not recommend too many tools, in fact, I tend to avoid it, but this is ...

You aren't going to be able to get a complete list of all your backlinks in one place. The worst place to start would be GWT. There is going to be very little useful (or even accurate information there). GWT is more useful as a venue to get communication from Google about red flags on your site and see what pages are getting indexed. Here is a list of ...

A couple things you can do: Look at the authority of the page where the link is coming from. If it is high, then keep them. Look at intent. Is the link a true online representation of an offline relationship? If it is then you should keep it. What does the link source neighborhood look like?

Matt Cutts has a video about the subject where he strongly advises using nofollow on any link that goes along with ...

Each of their crawlers might find one URL that another doesn't. If you are serious about your backlinks your best bet is to get backlinks from all of the three services I just mentioned ...

There is no reason to be concerned about "toxic" backlinks to your site unless you have a good reason to believe they exist, for example Google or Bing webmaster tools specifically informs you of low quality links. See this Google help page for details. That link also answers your specific question - it states that the download from GWT contains "all the ...

Firstly, site-wide links themselves are rarely "toxic". Usually they are just ignored by search engines. However, if a link to your site comes from a "toxic" (very low-quality) site, potentially it could damage your ranking. But the chance of this happening is extremely low: spam sites are just spam and don't usually add these kinds of scripts. And the spam ...

Search engines have penalized those actions for years. Do you really need a link on every page? Why not one link on one page like the "About" page for the company?

No. These and others are not toxic sites. Google knows these kinds of sites very well and discount their links to your site. Often, these links will add a small value to your overall profile, but are considered very low quality none-the-less. Be careful not to disavow links unless you know that they are toxic. It is a bad practice to disavow links as a ...
