What is Google’s Disavow Tool

5

At Pubcon Las Vegas on Tuesday (10/16), Google’s Matt Cutts announced a new tool to disavow links . After absorbing the news for a day, I have some advice – put down the keyboard and the Red Bull and breathe. Breathe in, breathe out, and then repeat.

As Uncle Ben said to Peter Parker, “With great power comes great responsibility, and my rice turns out Perfect Every Time®” – or something like that. My SEO friends are already reporting that their customers are asking to have links removed, and this has the potential to get ugly fast. I think this is, on balance, a good tool (one particularly handsome SEO petitioned Google for atext-file-based disavow back in December of 2011), but it also has the potential for serious destruction.

I. Who Should Use It?

Is the Web Development Community Alive?


Every now and then we’ll see a new design blog pop up, and for good reason — they become popular fast and can easily stay that way. This industry is definitely over-saturated with design blogs, as they are a great source of inspiration and the community that takes advantage of these blogs is so very alive. We see blogs, communities, forums, membership sites, active social media, and so much more from the design community.

Because of this, it’s so much easier for a designer to get their foot in the door than a web developer. With a much more active community, it can be easier to network, learn and grow. There is a community for nearly every profession available, but it’s merely that some communities are far more alive than others.
