Disavowing the “Globe” network of sites

We conduct a lot of link profile management for our clients either as part of our SEO activity or as a one-off for agencies (via our Partner Programme) and SEO / marketing managers around the world.

One of the most common network of spam sites we see is part of what we call “The Globe Network”.

If you have ever done a link audit on a site with a decent sized profile you will have no doubt come across these websites. They all look like this –

globe

And have 1000’s of pages offering followed links to the sites in their list. Nice I am sure you will agree!

We know that all the sites in this style are rubbish, offer no SEO value and if anything, are likely to tether your organic growth.

We maintain a master list of these sites that we update as and when we see the network expand.

We also proactively upload this list to the master disavow file we create for our clients.

It has started to save us a LOT of time in that the link auditing tool we use – Kerboo – allows us to upload an existing disavow file and effectively neutralising the sites from the link profile meaning we do not need to audit them.

Whether you use Kerboo or one of the less useful rivals, we know you will find it useful to have access to our master list so we have decided to share it with you.

You can download the txt file which we have formatted to disavow at domain level here.

Now you can get your audits done a lot more efficiently and focus on the sites that are worth your analysis time and get rid of these crappy scraper sites.

If you notice any that we have missed, please get in touch and we will update the master list for all.

If you would like us to take a look at your link profile and help you manage your links, get in touch and we would be delighted to chat about how we can use our skills to help you.

You’re welcome 🙂
