No, it is not!

Should use disavow only when there is any penalty from Google or if you have purchased links (or sometimes in case of negative SEO which rarely happens).

Yes! Many times even less quality links helps in ranking and you are removing all of them.

You can update Disavow once in two months (6 times a year) and is enough. You will observe a fluctuation in your ranking after updating your disavow. So its best to keep an interval at least 60 days before another update.

@Saksham @MyilRaj As i updated my disavow link list frequently like every months and my traffic get down badly. Now, Should i remove all the links from disavow list or i should keep as it is?

Keep the list! Focus on creating new links.

No, still disavow tool available. If you do not disavow spammy links you will be penalized. A recent incident of popular seo expert got penalized his business site. You can update it when you find bad backlinks in your gsc. Don’t ignore link audit.

Bro please don’t take too seriously this disavow tool. Otherwise your traffic will sucks like me :joy:. @Saksham gives us good advise “Should use disavow only when there is any penalty from Google or if you have purchased links (or sometimes in case of negative SEO which rarely happens).”

Yes I’m facing negative seo issues, I found links form porn sites as well.

Links from porn etc. sites is not Negative SEO.

Then what? We should ignore or disavow them.

Ignore it. I delete my disavow file and seeing improvement in traffic. :joy:
