For some reason this question (from Oct 2010) has more recently been deleted but was still available on stackprinter.com. I had the accepted answer and was looking high and low for it to use as reference on another question.

However, the Matt Cutts video on the same blog post does suggest that disavowing a link is semi-permanent. I've updated my answer.

Unfortunately, hosting recommendations are off-topic... webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/20838/…

comment What are the best hosting for big websites/forums?
"Web classic" probably refers to a standard "shared server" where you are sharing a powerful server and its resources with 100's (or even 1000's) of other websites. You perhaps have access to a lot of power when you need it, but resource hungry websites (perhaps yours is one!?) can rob resources from other sites and in the worst case bring down the server and all the websites on it. I'm seeing an increase in migration to "cloud platforms" where the resources are "sandboxed"... allocated to each site separately and protecting other sites from the greedy few.

comment Why won't Google use my meta description?
...but also, if the TITLE does not relate directly to the page content (ie. you're not discussing "buying history books" in the general sense) it's not going to carry the weight you hope it will.

comment Why won't Google use my meta description?
To be honest "Buy history books" is very generic (almost spam-like) so it is not surprising your site is going to struggle getting indexed for those keywords - it's very competitive. But are users really going to search for something vague like "buy history books", rather than the specific item they are searching for?

comment Why won't Google use my meta description?
Unfortunately not, unless perhaps your META description does not already relate directly to the on-page content? Are you suggesting that the snippet that Google is displaying is wholly inaccurate? Usually it is related to what the user has searched for, highlighting words in the content. The snippet displayed in the SERPs will often change depending on the search phrase.

The META description is not used to index your site. It is only used in the SERPs, unless other page text is deemed more relevant.

comment Why is GoogleBot crawling HTML pages as JSON using as referrer the one from my android app?
Have you verified (by IP) that these requests are from the real Googlebot?

comment Thousands Of RSS Feed Backlinks
FWIW I doubt that a "backlinks tool" would ordinarily be looking for links from RSS feeds?

comment Redirect URLs with a # in .htaccess
Since this is a "script" (not a browser) which is sending these malformed URLs, is a 404 not the correct response?
